Hi @marwanco,

Thanks for your patience, your question, and welcome to the community forum!

As you may have noticed, we have quite a few trading platforms and data feeds that we can configure our customers with:

For automated trading, low latency, and fast execution - you might like the combination of MultiCharts + the Rithmic data feed.

Plenty of our traders use this exact combination for similar methods/strategies. For automation, you have the ability to either code your own automated strategies or you have the option to configure preset enter/exit strategies through the MultiChart’s DOM.

There are two version of Multicharts, Multicharts and MultiChart.Net. Multicharts utilizes EasyLanguage and PowerLanguage for coding and according to many traders out there, this is very easy to pickup and learn. on the other hand, utilizes languages such as C# and VB.NET.

Let us know if you have further questions regarding platforms that support automated trading and the data feeds that are supported on them. We will also gladly help you out with MultiCharts if you are interested in using this platform going forward. At the end of the day, it comes down to your own personal preference and what you find comfortable using.

Thanks for the post,
