GeniusTrader aims to be a full featured toolbox to create trading systems. Powerful systematic trading requires several things:

  • many indicators and corresponding signals
  • money management rules
    • deciding what is a reasonable amount of money to put on a single trade (to limit the risk associated to that trade)
    • combining different values within the portfolio (to limit the global risk)
  • flexibility to be able to test all
  • combinations with the above items
  • backtesting system with analysis of results

GeniusTrader already has support of most of this. GeniusTrader consists of a bunch of Perl modules associated to a few perl scripts.
