This blog post will look at best algorithmic trading platforms that we feel offer some great features for traders trying out this method of making money on the markets.
1) Quantopian: One thing that sets Quantopian apart from many other algorithmic platforms is that it's open-source.Meaning anyone can contribute or make changes to its codebase if they wish. It also offers a free trial and is available for trading on American stock exchanges. The platform uses Python, an excellent programming language for quants who want to use their existing coding skills when creating algorithms. It also features an event-driven system that enables the easy integration of any data source, such as web scraping or market feeds. Quantopian trades with Interactive brokers and charges $2 per trade on stocks that cost less than $2 each. Otherwise, it's free.
2) Tradewave: Another open-source platform, trade wave offers advanced technological features such as options pricing and portfolio tracking. Trade signals can be generated in R and python languages, and strategies can be backtested before going live. Supported by Y Combinator, Tradewave has an easy-to-use drag and drop interface, enabling beginners to get started quickly. It currently only supports the U.S. stock market, but more exchanges are set to be added soon. Tradewave charges $100 per month for access to its platform on U.S. markets or $10 per algorithm created.
3) NinjaTrader: NinjaTrader is one of the most popular trading platforms for retail traders in recent years, with average user satisfaction rates of 4 out of 5 stars on G2Crowd. It features live market simulation options and technical analysis tools such as support levels, moving averages, and Bollinger bands. NinjaTrader also has an app store where you can download free indicators for your strategies (or paid ones if you wish). Its best feature is probably the fact that it supports automated trading on almost any U.S. or Canadian exchange. The only area where NinjaTrader falls short of other platforms in this list is concerning features for advanced users, as many of them are reserved for paid subscribers. However, if you're just getting started with trading, then this platform is a great place to start.
