Howdy

I am looking for new software that can do the following , and i am hopefull SmartQuant [either open or visual] can do this. Can anyone confirm the abilities exist below.

1. Ability to create a strategy that can monitor a specific FX market End Of Day [5pm US time] and a Index market End Of Day [5pm'ish US time] and then place a trade on a different market ?

2. Ability to backtest and cycle through a basket of world indexes and fx markets [eod] using 2 data streams to create a buy and sell signal on a third market?

3. automatic trade notification via email?

4. automatic trade notification via sms?

5. Automatic email notification that a buy/sel signal exists ?

6. Ability to automatically get eod data that is free but no later than 20 mins delayed.?

7. Does anyone know of online software that can do all this online/cloud , so i dont have to maintain the server , alternatively , can i put smartquant on to a 'internet cloud server' and let a data centre provider handle the isp failover and server /ups/ uptime so as i can outsource the dependability of the system? [does anyone do this? which provider do you use?]


thanks in advance for your time.

Cheers
Cama

Hi,

I think it's all doable but it would be nice to get more details. What EOD data providers do you want to use? What brokers?

Regards,
Anton

Not really sure what your getting at here.
Here's a guess.... at the EOD you want to download the latest historical EOD data, run a strategy, and print out a buy,sell trade list?
Yes OQ can do it... Just build your strategy, add all your instruments to the strategy, run the strategy, print out what the status is of each instrument. (Enter, Exit, Hold). Then compare your trade list with what your currently hold and make the trades.

By streams you mean different intervals of time? (then yes not a problem)
The other two questions I not very familiar with. Sry.

3. automatic trade notification via email?

Using outlook or outlook express you can use this:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.mail.smtpclient.aspx

Using gmail:
http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/CSharpGmail
http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/CSharpGmail/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=427

4. automatic trade notification via sms?

Depending on who your cellular provider is you can send an sms msg by emailing your phone.
Usually the email format for a cell phone phonenumber@providername.com
Ex: 4165551212@fido.ca
4165552222@pcs.rogers.com

If your cell provider doesn't have txt to email service then you would need to find out if your cell provider has a web page that you can send a txt from.
Ex: http://www.txt.bell.ca/bell/en/

5. Automatic email notification that a buy/sel signal exists ?

Heh heh heh heh ...
The technical issue of sending the notification is quite simple... compared to the herculean task of actually identifying proper buy/sell signals. (Just use the email/gmail code above and send an email when you get the signal)
Code:
OnBar(Bar bar)
{
   if(BuySignalConfirmed)
   {
       Buy(1000,"Enter");
       SendEmail("Entering Buy with conditions X Y Z");
   }
}

You can write an OQ script that will automatically get data from Yahoo.
(In OQ look for the script manager in the top toolbar)

If you want to use something to download your data you can check here for how to request data from yahoo:

Sounds like what your looking for is a virtualization provider.
You still need to install the software, run the simulations, build the strategy and make sure the system is running.
They take care of internet connectivity, machine setup, OS installation, backup, failover.
