in USA, TDAmeritrade has a thing called StrategyDesk, you can run TA on it and even create a program trading system which does live trades for you.

Amibroker, but it's a seperate component you need to purchase. Not expensive though.

Check this out - http://www.tdameritrade.com/tradingtools/strategydesk.html - maybe a formula or two, but mostly those EMA/Stochastics/TA things, but not much other code...

FXCM in the UK has a platform you can hook a C# application into, and the beauty is you can play on the demo platform until the app is thoroughly tested. Now just to find the time to write the app.

They have an AFL library as long as my arm and a site where you can post your formula for others to view and rectify.

John, you trade with IG? They have this feature under their advanced charts. Not a lot of programming required, just some logic to construct the rules ie buy 2% of account value when ma cross.
