This spring TradeStation held a two part video presentation on the basics of strategy trading. It is a very basic primer with a TradeStation emphasis. Topics such as, what is strategy testing, an introduction to the tools TradeStation offers for working with strategies, and an overview of the system development process are covered. Part two of the presentation delves further into the nuts and bolts of strategy development, testing and automation.
So, if you’re new to system trading you may find this very helpful. Included with this presentation is sample code and TradeStation WorkSpaces. You can find those at the TradeStation website. The links are provided below the videos.
