Stocks & Commodities V. 23:10 (79-80): Product Review: TradeStation 8.1 by Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan
If I had to choose just one word to describe the features
that have been added to TradeStation 8.1, it would
be “orders.” Orders have, without a doubt, been enhanced to the point that traders can select from a wide array of order types when placing trades. TradeStation is a rule-based trading platform for equities, options, futures, and forex. It allows clients to design, backtest, and automatically execute custom trading strategies. The latest version, TradeStation 8.1, has just been released.
INSTALLATION AND SETUP
Not surprisingly, installing TradeStation 8.1 was a snap. It did take longer than the indicated five minutes for the initial install and running of the program, but
not by much. And upgrading to new builds, when they were available, took about the same amount of time. Once the program was installed and running, I didn’t experience any difficulties. Many years have passed since I last used a TradeStation program, and I must
say I was impressed with the performance of this version.
