Anyone with an interest in trading can learn how to use ADL to develop, test, and execute automated trading algorithms. Although the amount of time needed to become proficient in the application varies from person to person, programmers and traders alike can use ADL® after investing a relatively short amount of time in learning.
Getting Started with ADL
For new users, the Getting Started with ADL
section of the help library provides the most comprehensive overview of ADL. This section includes an introduction to the canvas and description of the underlying concepts required to begin developing algos.
In addition, the Frequently Asked Questions section provides a high-level overview of ADL.
Users that feel comfortable learning by test driving ADL can launch embedded tutorials directly within the application. These tutorials provide a step-by-step walkthrough to building different components of larger algos.
ADL and X_TRADER
Once you have written your algo, the Launching Algos
section of the help library and the Algos in X_TRADER Setup Guide
provide the information you need to successfully launch and manage algos within X_TRADER.
ADL and Autotrader
Autotrader users that want to leverage the enhanced functionality of ADL should review the Migrating Autotrader Strategies to ADL Guide
for more information on replicating and enhancing Autotrader functionality using ADL.
ADL Challenge Exercises
Users who are comfortable using ADL can use the ADL Challenge Exercises
