We've put together a short video that gives an overview of Cloud9Trader and walks you through some of its powerful features.

This is the first in a series of tutorials that will get you up and running with developing, backtesting and optimizing trading algorithms, covering the full process through to trading live with your broker.

If you are new to algorithmic trading, these tutorials will get you up to speed with all the basics and high level concepts.

If you have experience, you'll see how Cloud9Trader streamlines every stage of your workflow so that you get your algorithms trading more quickly and more reliably than ever before.

This first video is available at the link below. Please also subscribe or check back shortly for the next in the series.

As always, your feedback is very welcome.

Introducing Genetic Optimizations

We’ve recently added genetic optimizations to your backtesting toolkit in Cloud9Trader. This enormously powerful feature models genetic processes in nature to determine the most profitable set of external settings for your algorithm. Multiple backtests are run simultaneously across hundreds of cloud servers so that you’ll have the results in minutes.

As the optimizations run you’ll see the results continuously improve until the engine converges around the optimal settings. Once completed, every individual result is displayed with an equity curve. A chart plotting performance against external values helps you quickly see which produce the best results to be selected for trading.

You’ll find the ‘New Optimization’ button under the ‘Optimize’ tab alongside your algorithms. For now you can run these completely for free - they will not use any of your backtest units. Just ensure you have the strategy set to ‘Genetic Algorithm’.

Please take it for a spin and let us know if there’s anything we can improve.

We’ve recently released Community Shared Algorithms.

You can now share and discuss your scripts, pool ideas and build strategies together with a growing resource of shared code.

If you are new to automated trading, we’ve made it as simple as possible to write your strategies, but often the best way to familiarize yourself is by example.

You now have shared algorithms to use as a reference, run backtests against and clone to use as a base to build your own strategies.

It’s very early days at Cloud9Trader, but as one of our first users you can help build an online community that collectively explores ideas, shares knowledge, offers help and advice and works together to conquer the markets.

The algorithms you choose not to show off are of course still owned by you and remain private.

Please take a look at the Community Shared Algorithms page where some great scripts are waiting:

The code for our 50 or so built in technical indicators is now open sourced and available on GitHub. Useful as a reference or if an existing indicator provides a good base for one you want to write. Just copy the code into your indicator edit screen.

Technical indicators draw themselves onto price charts as overlays or studies. They can also be used directly in your trading algorithms.

We're very please to have launched a pre-release of our trading platform. It's a beta release, so we'd be very grateful for feedback that can help shape the product into the ultimate tool for trading.

We've built this product on a belief that algorithmic trading can be made simple for everyone, given the right tools. If algorithmic trading isn't for you, Cloud9Trader is also a super fast platform for manual trading, complete with live price charts and a wide range of built in technical indicators.

You can connect live to your broker or try our free demo accounts so please take it for a spin and let us know what you think.
