I am putting together a trading plan that I think could be automated. It is my understanding that sierra-chart does have automated trading, but that I would need to do all the programing for it. My question: I am horrible at that kind of stuff. Would it be possible to get help from the support team at sierra-chart to help me put that together?

My second question: After I put it together I was wondering if there is a way to back test it without me having to back test it manually? In other words, can sierra-chart do all that through a computer scan, looking thourhg all the historical data and seeing how many of the trades would have worked?

Thanks for your time.

The answer to the first question is no because we do not provide help with automated trading system development or debugging. We do not have the time to get involved in that and we have a mountain of other work to focus on.

Back testing is easily accomplished. Documentation can be found here:

You can auto-trade with spreadsheet trading, it is easy to implement, debug and backtest. For backtest you simply run "Chart->Replay" or "Trade->Autotrade system Replay Backtest". It is also very well documented. There is no need of programming skills, all you need is some basics of excel. Good luck.
