I intend to program a trading system, based on moving averages and some more indicators. It will be a median time
trend following system - no day trading.
Now I am looking for the best and not too expensive software to do that. I studied already websites of Amitrader, Ninja
and WHS, but the available info is incomplete and confusing.

The software must provide
- a programming language ( similarity to C or Pascal preferred )
- fast backtesting
- Optimizing ( i.e. backtesting with variable parameter )
- interface to historical data

Who has experience in programming and can recommend such a software?
