Ukraine-based PFSoft introduced AlgoStudio, a tool for algorithmic strategy development that supports MQSL and C# languages, as part of the ProTrader 2 direct market access (DMA) platform for trading strategies creation, optimization and back-testing.
"We came to the conclusion that the processes of development and back-testing should not be divided," says Andrew Gerasimenko, a PFSoft analyst. "That's why AlgoStudio is an integrated module which includes all the necessary functionality for strategies development, optimization, back-testing, debugging and work with history. If a trader operates with our AlgoStudio there's no need to use any additional applications."
AlgoStudio's functionality enables users to make testing on different types of data aggregation: time, ticks, range, PnF, Renko, Kagi and LineBreak. Trader can use the unlimited number of instruments and create any kind of algorithmic strategy, including scalping, trending, arbitrage, and high frequency. All the processes are followed by the visualization of strategies testing and optimization. In addition, traders can import scripts written in MQL4 into AlgoStudio for further development.
"The trading volume generated by robots holds important positions on the financial markets," says Denis Borisovsky, CEO of PFSoft. "We offer our clients an instrument which introduces a unique combination of two programming languages simultaneously. With the help of AlgoStudio brokers can reach two targeted audiences: MQL4 and C# traders."
