In this course, we'll be walking hands-on-tutorial-style through the creation of an automated trading strategy using C# and the NinjaTrader platform, as well as methods for testing out its potential success. By the end of the lectures, you should be able to not only create a simple trading strategy, but also understand how to test it against historical market data, debug it, and even log data into a custom database for further analysis. Even if you have limited C# and trading strategy experience, the examples in this book will provide a great foundation for getting into automated trading and safely testing out strategy ideas before risking real money in the market.
I'm Ryan Moore, a Software Engineer / Architect Consultant with over 12 years experience in design and development. I've been working with C# and with "rich web" technologies since 2002, leading me to publish my first book Foundation ASP.NET for Flash in 2006. Recently, on the web and mobile side, I have been a technical reviewer for Matthew David's series of HTML 5 and mobile books, and have published a very successful mobile application, Sports Card for iOS.
My personal passion for artificial intelligence and finance has also lead me to a wealth of experience in automated stock trading using .NET technologies, a brief introduction to which I've summarized in my latest e-book Automated Stock Trading Strategies with C# and NinjaTrader 7.
