a powerful new versatile
programming language for traders that provides the framework to build trading systems without any prior programming experience.
TradeScript™ is a non-procedural
scientific vector programming language that allows traders to develop trading systems as rapidly and effortlessly as possible.
With TradeScript™ you can enable
your trading application to run trading scripts. A script is simply a set of
instructions that tell the scripting engine to do something useful, such as
provide an alert when the price of a security (stock, futures, ETF or forex) reaches a new high, crosses over a
moving average, or drops by a certain percentage. TradeScript can also scan the
market, generate trade signals, back test trading strategies and more.

Most popular trading applications such as MetaStock™, TradeStation™,
NinjaTrader™, MetaTrader™ and others offer some form of a programming language (MQL4,
MetaStock's ™ scripting language, etc.). Without a programming language, users would
be unable to develop flexible trading systems.
A vector programming
language allows the trader extreme flexibility with a minimal learning
curve. But what is a vector programming language, and what makes
this language so user-friendly?
Vector programming languages (also known as array or multidimensional
languages) generalize operations on scalars to apply transparently to
vectors, matrices, and higher dimensional arrays.
The fundamental idea behind vector programming is that operations apply at
once to an entire set of values (a vector or field). This allows you to think and
operate on whole aggregates of data, without having to resort to explicit loops of
individual scalar operations.
an example, to calculate a simple moving average based on
the median price of a security over 30 days, in a
traditional programming language such as BASIC you would be
required to write a program similar to the code here:
For bar = 30 to max
Average = 0
For n = bar - 30 to bar
median = (CLOSE + OPEN) / 2
Average = Average + median
MedianAverages(bar) = Average / 30
lines of code would be required to create the “MedianAverages”
vector. But with TradeScript™, you can effectively accomplish the same thing
using only one line:
SET MedianAverage = SimpleMovingAverage((CLOSE + OPEN) / 2, 30)
And now MedianAverage is actually a new vector that contains the 30-period
simple moving average of the median price of the security at each point.
It is not uncommon to find array programming language
"one-liners" that require
more than a couple of pages of BASIC, Java or C++ code. The same
holds true for creating trading systems for back testing and trade
TradeScript™ has taken years to develop. A lot of time and
effort has gone into this scripting
language to make it as fast as possible, as reliable as possible,
and perhaps easier to use than any other programming language to date. No matter if you're a trader who needs scripting capabilities
inside a Microsoft Excel trading system, or a trading application
developer needing to extend the capabilities of a Windows based
trading application, TradeScript™ is an easy and powerful
