Kurzbeschreibung

Customize your trading plan for greater profits using the most popular charting software

The majority of professional and individual traders use some kind of trading software on which to base their strategies. With over 100,000 users, the most popular trading software today is TradeStation, published by TradeStation Technologies. While this software is favored by many, TradeStation's computer language can be confusing, especially for the novice.

TradeStation Made Easy! is the first and only book to explain exactly how to use the unique computer language behind this bestselling software program. It is not meant as a replacement for the TradeStation manuals, instead it will cover the essence of programming in EasyLanguage and focus on a consistent set of data and an elementary system throughout.

  • An easily understood guide to TradeStation that also provides tips for the user in designing a personalized trading system
  • Endorsed by the software provider TradeStation Technologies
  • Written in a straightforward manner, that is accessible even for those with little computer experience

TradeStation Made Easy! fills a much-needed gap in this area and puts the basics of EasyLanguage in perspective. With it, you'll be able to write simple and intermediate programs that will accurately express your theories and ideas about whatever market interests you.

Buchrückseite

"Sunny Harris has been a TradeStation(R) user and advocate since its inception in 1991. Her back-testing methodologies using TradeStation(R) have remained widely popular over the years with online strategy traders. Sunny's writing is thorough and easy to read. We think this is a valuable book for anyone who is interested in learning more about strategy trading."--SALOMON SREDNI, Chairman and CEO, TradeStation Group, Inc.

"One of the early users of TradeStation(R) software, Sunny Harris has been studying and programming trading strategies for more than thirty years. . . . Through the many examples Sunny walks you through in this book, you'll have a much better understanding of how to use EasyLanguage(R) to create your own strategies."--From the Foreword by BILL CRUZ, founder and former CEO, TradeStation Group, Inc.

With over 100,000 users, TradeStation(R) has become one of the most popular tools for both professional and individual traders. While the software allows traders to design their own strategies, back-test them on years of historical data, and then computer-automate them, it's the power of EasyLanguage(R)--TradeStation(R)'s proprietary programming language--that makes all of this possible. By mastering EasyLanguage(R) you have the power to test, and potentially profit from, any idea you can imagine.

TradeStation(R) Made Easy! is the first and only book to explain exactly how to use the unique language behind this bestselling software program. Written by self-taught EasyLanguage(R) programmer Sunny Harris, this one-of-a kind guide covers the essence of programming in EasyLanguage(R) and provides valuable real-world insights from years of author experience in this field. Along the way, Harris also walks you through the process of installing TradeStation(R), using it for the first time or two, and writing your first several indicators and strategies. And while new versions of TradeStation(R) are always released, there's no need to worry. The concepts found throughout these pages are applicable to whatever version of TradeStation(R) you may be using. It also works on MultiCharts.

Dieses Buch wurde mein Standardwerk für EL , es fehlt eigentlich nichts . Ausführliche Anhänge & Tabellen helfen später beim Coden spezielle Settings (Farbcodierungen, Linienformen u.v.m.) schnell zu finden . Es ist für mich sowohl Lehrbuch als auch Nachschlagewerk geworden .

1.0 von 5 Sternen HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.... 27. Juli 2016
Von ClayKing - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Early rating, to be changed if warranted. Currently on page 135 and rate the experience to date as HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT, Oh, by the way, I am a former Chartered Market Technician (now retired), so not a technical or invesment novice. If one has had TS for a month, which I have, and learned anything from the first 135 pages, then I question their commitment to trading or using TS at all. The first pages are filled with charts from TS showing examples of how to do really simple things, like how to color a iine, how to format etc. etc. One will learn a great deal more watching the video's posted on the TS website than these pages.....I don't mind the wasted $40 or so on the book, what I regret so far is the time wasted on these pages, as they have yielded nothing of value to me. I am struggling to stay with it as I am hopeful that something will be learned somewhere in the future, but ever so doubtful

So much has been wasted so far on learning easy language, which the title seems to indicate is the goal. For example, showing how to do a simple moving cross over strategy, and how to optimize it. Really, how about showing how to program in EL before improving a stupid ma crossover. After 135 pages, that's it. Heck, the TS video show how to do that in about a minute or so.
Will follow up later. Today's date is 7/27/2016.

On to the math chapter. Since my school math was a very long time ago, and rarely used since, other than arithmetic, this chapter reminded me of a few things long forgotten. I might refer back here if needed, however, my goal with easy language is not so much to write trading systems, but to alert me to certain things happening within the stocks I follow or the market. Finally, the next chapter is the basics of writing and learning easy language.....let's keep our fingers crossed.....7/30/16....with any kind of luck, a long time will be spent reading, learning and practicing this chapter........

Well, that was fast,chapter 6, Basic Easy Language. First she gives some hints to write several templates for easy use later....ok., not a bad idea as she gives some to copy for one's own use. Now we open a moving average function from the easy language library to work on. So now we are told to remove quite a few lines of the code because they are not needed for us simple types, ok, fine with me if not needed. HOWEVER, no reason why they are not needed so how do I learn? Just delete and move forward. Delelet "displace" without no attempt to explain why, what or who is "displace"...So now we plot this new moving average and she doesn't like the color of the line (she does that a lot) and so we are shown how to change the color in our code.....except, she goes off and explains it by using RSI and not the code that we are working on.....why, why why? It is like changing boats in the middle of the stream. That done, and she writes "I hope they print this book in color. If I end up publishing it myself on the internet you'll be able to see color; if the publisher prints it in black and white........etc. Really!!!!!!????? So now we move back to the moving average that we are working on to finish the chapter. Ok, we do the line width also.....This process is maddening, reminds me of the last words from the movie "Bridge on the River Kwai".....Madness, madness. ok, on to chapter seven Programming Conventions....I bet we change some more colors!!!! 7/30/16.

Made it through chapters 7 and 8. Continuing disappointment. Gives some definitions but lacks the follow through of the example. while some knowledge was gained in these two chapters, it seems not enough to be able to use myself in writing usefull code, other than some moving average crossovers, which I don't use. I will write little else until I've finished this book, must more wasted time on top of the wasted time to date on the book. August 3, 2016.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good for Beginner Traders 30. März 2015
Von Cypherdude - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
TradeStation Made Easy! is useful if you have never used TradeStation before. You should already have basic math skills up to at least advanced algebra. You should also have taken at least one BASIC computer programming course. Otherwise, you will not understand some of the content and how TradeStation works.

There are many reviewers who state the book is over 700 pages long, 746 to be exact. However, much of the content is copied word for word from TradeStation's help files:
Appendix B, Reserved Words: Pages 415 to 563 or 148 pages
Appendix G.2 Built-in Functions and Indicators (Functional Listing): Pages 589 to 707 or 118 pages

This means a total of 266 pages, or 36%, are mostly copied from TradeStation's help files. So, instead of having a 746 page book, in reality you have a 480 page book. Whenever I am in TradeStation's Development Environment, I always have another monitor with FireFox which has 6 different tabs of TradeStation's help files open. You can access all of TradeStation's help files in your browser. I prefer to use FireFox over TradeStation's help window because the help window text is too small. Also, if I use FireFox's tabs, I can have 6-10 help files open. I usually have multiple copies of each subject open so I can keep something I looked up available. There are at least 8 different TradeStation help files for different subjects you can access directly from your browser. I will give you all the URL's in the comments section of this review. Then you will not need the 266 pages of the book. Moreover, TradeStation's help files are more complete and up to date than the book's appendices.

If you do not have TradeStation or are reading away from your computer, you might want to refer to these 2 large appendices. However, if you already have TradeStation and are in their Development Environment, you will refer to their help files instead. Once you attain an intermediate level, you will not use these 266 pages.

On the positive side, the book is written in a clear and easy to understand manner. If TradeStation's help files don't clarify a subject, the book might be useful. When writing an indicator in TradeStation's Development Environment, I have referred to the book a few times. The book will carry a beginner TradeStation user to intermediate level.

On the negative side, the book, as with the few other EasyLanguage books which are available, says nothing about advanced subjects. TradeStation's Objects, "Price Series Provider" (PSP) and WebAPI are very advanced subjects. These 3 subjects are probably beyond the scope of this book. Finding material on and learning these 3 subjects is very difficult. I have found no books on these 3 subjects. One place I have found information on Objects and "Price Series Provider" is the TradeStation help file, EL Object Reference, which I actually discovered today! The other place is in TradeStation's forums. Unfortunately, TradeStation's forums have limited information on Objects and PSP and none on TradeStation's WebAPI. What information is available on Objects and PSP is scattered among many different TS Forum posts. You open one Forum post and then you must open another, and then another...

TradeStation's WebAPI allows customers to access TS's datafeed and make trades through programming languages such as Python 2-3, Visual C++, FORTRAN, Visual Basic, etc... Because of the growing popularity of Python 2 and 3, and Python's ability to incorporate the R programming language, I believe there is a pent up demand for documentation of TradeStation's WebAPI. Unfortunately, I can find no TradeStation WebAPI programming examples in Python. Python 2, 3 and the R programming languages are all free. You don't have to pay anything for them.

**AUTHORS** **PUBLISHERS** TradeStation's advanced users need a comprehensive book on TradeStation's Objects, "Price Series Provider" (PSP) and WebAPI. We need an expert to write a full and complete book on these 3 subjects! We need a book which completely covers these 3 subjects and also gives us complete CODE EXAMPLES. This book would probably be at least 1000 pages long. These 3 subjects are, to me at least, very complex. For TradeStation's Objects and "Price Series Provider" (PSP), there are many options and statements and they are difficult to understand.

I debated on what rating to give this book. Amazon only has a 5 star system. If I could have given 7 out of 10 stars, I would have. I did not want to give 3 out of 5 so I am giving 4/5. However, I would prefer to give 7/10 or 3.5/5. Be sure to look in the comments section of this review. I am posting 8 URL's, one for each section of TradeStation's help files. If you are debating whether to use TradeStation's platform, you can open the help files to read detailed information about their software.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely Useful. 4. Februar 2013
Von Dr. Scott A. Gustafson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There are a number of glowing recommendations about this book, and a few people panning it. I have only positive things to say - as a matter of fact, I give it the highest praise I can give to a book like this: it's Extremely Useful.

The negative reviews appear to misunderstand what the book is for, and complain that it doesn't fit a need that it's not designed to fit. I came to Tradestation with some good (at least I think) ideas about trading, but when I funded the account and sparked up the program, I was daunted by the Tyranny of the Blank Page. The platform is extremely flexible, but with that comes the cost of being responsible for learning it from the ground up. The customer service is great, but the self-learning materials are dreadful.

The author takes you, step by step, through the process of designing a strategy, programming it in to the system, applying it to charts, turning the system in to a formal strategy, optimizing the strategy to refine your parameters and squeeze out all the efficiency possible, and forward test it so you can have some idea of it's probable effectiveness.

She never, at any time, promises to give you the "Holy Grail" of trading, or even give you winning strategies. There are as many strategies as there are traders. She gives you the ability to make your ideas actionable within the trading platform. For me, that's worth many times the price of admission.

The bottom line: the book is very well written, very approachable, step-by-step and logical in building complexity, and is useful. More useful than any other resource I've seen, including the hours of video tutorials on the tradestation website that are more confusing than helpful.

What the book is: A way to get up and running with tradestation so that you can experiment with ideas and determine which of your trading ideas has an empirically likely chance of success. What it is not: a secret tome with the ultimate answer to the stock market: "Do this and get rich". If you'll notice, most of the bad reviews are because people were seeking the latter.

This is a solid, useful, well written book on navigating Tradestation. If that's what you want, buy this book. It does its job very well.

2.0 von 5 Sternen 5 Star Reviews? Really? 25. Juni 2013
Von D. Witkin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I debated writing this review because I have deep respect for any author willing to write a book as long as this one. However, while there are some positive aspects to the book, there are numerous issues that an editor, reviewers, or the author should have addressed before it went to print. So, I'm writing the review I wish I would have read prior to purchasing this book.

In short, if you are an absolute beginner in trading system development and EasyLanguage, and you can overlook some of the issues I list later in this review, I'd give the book 4 stars. If you don't fit that description, this probably isn't the right book for you.

And despite other reviewers' (and the author's) contention that anyone writing a "bad" review of this book is overly negative, I love writing positive reviews. What I don't like is paying $40+ for a book based partially on reviews that seem overly positive.

What I liked:
* The book fills a need. I was surprised by how few books are available to help learn EasyLanguage from the ground up that are more 'user friendly' than the free TradeStation manuals. I certainly know more about EasyLanguage than I did before reading the book and am more capable of writing my own systems and indicators.

* The book is not just about EasyLanguage. The author runs through basic information on how to design and test systems. (If you have been working with other software packages and know the broad strokes of how to evaluate systems, much of this information will likely be of little value to you, but for beginners, I think it is useful.)

* The author clearly has deep experience using the software and provides some good feedback on common 'gotchas'. This might be my favorite part of the book.

* I use MultiCharts, and while some text and instructions are clearly specific to TradeStation (e.g., click the TradeStation icon to open the program) most of the text applies to MultiCharts' implementation of EasyLanguage as well as TradeStation's. If you are a MultiCharts user, if you run through an introduction to MultiCharts, you should be able to translate and apply the information fairly easily.

* The writing style is friendly and conversational. (Ok... occasionally a little cheesy.) Some other reviewers seem bothered by this. It makes the text longer, and will likely annoy experienced coders, but it seems appropriate for beginning coders. If you are a strong coder in other languages, there are probably other books that are more "just the facts" focused than this one.

Before providing some less favorable remarks, I want to say I understand writing a large book is huge challenge and no book is perfect. I have a deep respect for any author who undertakes an effort to write a volume such as this one. That said, ...

What I didn't like:
* Most authors refer to their prior books once or twice, and in general this doesn't bother me. Authors sell books. However, this book references the author's other books a significant number of times, enough to become annoying. Based on a quick search, I count at least 12 references to her prior books... and that doesn't include a bunch of other references that seem designed to send you to the author's website. Overkill.

* The book is poorly edited. Some other reviewers have noted the author seems to jump around a bit and there seem to be some odd transitions between topics. I agree - you would hope a good editor would address this type of thing before a book goes to market. These non sequiturs detract from the focus of the book and make it a bit frustrating to read, and unfortunately there seem to be a bunch of them.

* In some cases, the drive to promote her site and products causes her not to relay useful information to readers. For example, the first time she discusses an Exponential Moving Average (EMA) crossover trading system, she relays that Tradestation does not come packaged with one indicator that can plot two different Exponential Moving Averages (EMAs) on the chart. Ok, but rather than tell readers the easiest solution - add two individual EMA indicators to the chart - she directs readers to her site to download her 'custom-built' solution without providing a solution using the built-in functionality, (and without telling the user how to do it themselves with a few lines of code - this is a book on learning EasyLanguage, after all).

* The level of repetition seems a bit excessive, even for beginners. For example, in the first 20% of the book, there are 3 or 4 different places where the author describes what a code comment is and how to use them; similarly, she explains how and why to use the verify function to validate the code in 3 or 4 different places. I don't mean she just instructs the user to verify the code; I mean she seems to re-introduce the reason why it is necessary to verify the code over and over again. Overkill, even for a beginner.

* There is what I consider some really bad advice (or maybe just a terrible example) -- repeated several times -- on how to scale charts of two different symbols to "see visually which one is more tradeable." After reading it multiple times, the example used seems to be suggesting that if two stocks vary a similar amount in percentage terms over identical time frames, the stock with the higher price range varies more and is "more tradeable". I'm guessing this isn't what she meant, but that's the conclusion I draw from her example.

* Some of the choices about what to include in the book seem a bit odd. There are too many of these to go into, but as an example, first, the author relays what she sees as" 4 essential steps to any project", including "designing a trading system" : (1) Observation; (2) Research; (3) Programming and Quality Assurance (which she also calls manufacturing); and (4) marketing and sales. Step 4 sounds a bit odd for a process of "designing a trading system". So, the author goes on to translate the 4 steps into more meaningful descriptions suited for trading system development (e.g., marketing and sales = follow the system). Forgetting the logical error (i.e., designing a trading system and trading the system are two distinct processes in my mind, so "following the system" is not part of the system design process), why not just give a good model for system development at the outset rather than providing a generic model that doesn't sound like it is a good fit for trading system development, and then mapping the generic model to a model more relevant to trading? And, of course, the author says we might want to review more information on the 4 step process in her other books before reading further... ugh.

* Some graphics in the Kindle version don't appear correctly.

1.0 von 5 Sternen I was very very disappointed in this book 8. Mai 2015
Von Scott Walls - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was very very disappointed in this book. I applaud the amount of work that went into it, but the erroneous examples and the very basic nature of the book left it quite useless for me. I could not trust the logic in the examples after finding 2 examples where the code was simply wrong. The free Tradestation documents were far more useful. Please note that I am an experienced trader and I have written software before, so perhaps this might be the right fit for me. I plan on reselling it.
