Question if it is working well in NT why not just use NT to trade. As everyone has pointed out TOS does not autotrade. NT8 you can execute trades. Are you saying your strategy is more effective in thinkscript? In this thread there are many ideas on autotrading using alternate methods. Much depends on how complicated your trading is. To trade 100 shares of stock when a certain condition is met is probably the easiest. But if it involves Options it can get quite complex. Come on to two discord groups: tda-api and TOS Python trading bot, you may get some answers. Also @epete pointed out a service that if you don't want to code. I have experimented with many, and in the end the reliability of the strategy is at the center of it all, not the implementation.I have written and used NT8 strategies with C# and used it to connect to TDA for data feed and auto trade with fake money. My understanding was that connecting to a real account would allow for auto trading.
Well, then why not go directly. I painstakingly improved my algo, and ported it over to thinkscript from C#. It's a strategy within the program, how do I enable the trades seen on the chart to actually execute?
IF it's not possible to use the strategy to auto trade (and that's beyond stupid), is there a way to use thinkscript and a third party software to run the algo?
Going from C# took me over a year to thinkscript, as well as some improvements. Going back to a smarter language from essentially pig Latin would take forever.
Thank you for your help
