The EFX order server source code is not available publicly.

However, we do plan to support all the new features when it is made available from EFX's API.

Level 2 with MB is supported and should work fine.
If you have trouble setting up, just email our support staff.

I dont see anyway to setup a trailing stop?
Might have missed it.

MB's server side trailing stop is not supported yet.

Client side trailing stop can be done thru a system or the strategic order form.

brwkem,

I'm going to write an order interface between Oanda and Neo in C#.NET, so I may write an interface between EFX and Neo as well. This way, we will be able to add/tune any features/order types etc. as we would like to.

Writing and debugging an order interface responsibly is not a work for two weeks though.

Michal

I think I would be interested in a month to month to try it out. If after 4 months or so and some familiarity with it, if we could convert to a full ownership with some of our monthly payments applied to the purchase price that would be great.

I'm thinking the same after 2 months or so.

JPT wrote:As to converting, thanks for the link to C#. I think I will start there. Do I understand that once I write my code in something like C# which is free from Microsoft, I can run that code at NeoTicker?

Precisely.

JPT wrote:In the conversion, so that no one has to give up anything proprietary, why don't we all work together to prepare a NeoTicker strategy "shell" in C# or their script language.

I've heard there are Neo traders already working on a general trading interface framework. I am planning to write a Neo <> Oanda & EFX order interface in turn, in C#.NET.

JPT wrote:I also assume that NeoTicker or C# will allow an easier use for mathematical and statistical functions.

The System.Math class in C# offers a wide variety of built-in math functions. In addition to that, there is a lot of third-party math & statistics classes developers on the internet. Personally, I'm having an eye on Extreme Optimization Mathematics Library for .NET :smt003

Michal,

For those of us learning C# for the first time, what would be some good resources (i.e. books, forums, websites)?

Eudaimonia (pron.: you-die-moan-e-a) (Greek: εὐδαιμονία) is a classical Greek word commonly translated as 'happiness'. The less subjective "human flourishing" is often preferred as a translation.

Ed, the links to some good resources are here:

C# really rulez. My C#-coded stats I am now working on go thru a 40MBytes 1-ticks datafile in about 2 seconds (I guess the limiting factor is the hard drive reading speed :) ) The same stat would need several dozen minutes with Tradestation & EasyLanguage.

I remember the common ritual of starting some tick-level statistics code in Tradestation and stretching out for some trading book to read the next chapter :))

Michal,

Thanks Michal. I'm definately interested in becoming a NeoTicker convert. The primary barrier for me is learning the new language. Its quickly becoming obvious this is something I need to get onboard with.
