I agree it is superior. To trading without any software.
Their trade costs are twice as high as the trade costs of the best FX brokers. I trade only FX, so I am not interested/have not researched anything else (equities, futs etc.).

I'd prefer to say the opportunities to get a headache using easylanguage are basically endless. EasyLanguage is no match for Delphi Script which you can use in Neo (as well as other languages).
For example, how would you declare such a simple data type as the multidimensional dynamic array in EasyLanguge? Or how would you do such a basic thing as setting an array size based on user's input? No way in EL.

For me and other sophisticated traders it was not. Basic things such as being able to reference the order name which generated the trade within EL were not present. No second-stamped data. etc. etc.

I don't think so. The real cornerstone of the present dismal state of the Tradestation platform is not the customer support but the core business shift.
The employees are able to do only what their managers allow them to. Many of the TS staff guys are great and willing to help. But what can they do if the management simply decides that TS development is not worth the money.
biotin_max wrote:One more problem is FX non-integration into TS
TS has been promising this for years already. In fact, this illustrates the frustration of the TS support guys. They can't tell you Tradestation is not interested in FX automation publicly. So they are generating the fog by making statements like "we are working on it" even if they know it is a lie. But are they really guilty? I guess not. The owners and the managers are to blame.

I'm not interested in TS not being able to address my questions. I'm solely interested in making money. The biggest reason for me leaving Tradestation is the lack of FX automation. I will make more money more consistently with another platform by using FX automation. The bonus I get by switching to Neo is that the new platform is superior to Tradestation.

Why shouldn't it? Anyone is free to post anything on this forum (well except for pornography, swearing etc.). This was why we did set it up. On the other hand, no one can post freely on the Tradestation forums. My articles got deleted there without me being told the reason (although I have asked).
