I use TradeStation for automated trading. In general, I find it satisfactory although I find them extremely inflexible and have concerns about what I might do if they were no longer available.

I do 10 to 15 round trips per day in 5 accounts. I use it almost 100% for entries. I use it less than 50% for exits because I often find that market conditions cause me to want to manually exit early.

In order to protect myself against an unknown future, I would like to know what alternatives I might have. A re there alternative automated services available? Anyone using them? What do you like or dislike about them?

Thank you.

I don't have experience with any others.

There is NEOTICKER and NINJATRADER.

Also MultiCharts but I don't know if they run automated strategies.

Even though a few people at the top of TS are a bunch of &#(&*(#*$&, the platform is still worth using.
