One of the problems with reviewing software in a market as rapidly evolving as automated and algorithmic trading is that by the time the review is published in Automated Trader a new version of the product has often already been released. As a result, the Editor's technology mailbag has of late been filling up with readers' letters clamouring for us to peep over the technology horizon and take a look at a product before it is actually released.
So that's what we've done this month. In a departure from our usual practice of reviewing a piece of production software, in this issue we give a "preview review" of a pending new release of DMZ Trading Solution's existing AlgoEngine product. And we're glad we did. As Automated Trader's Founder, Andy Webb, and the Wrecking Crew quickly discovered, simplicity and functionality don't have to be mutually exclusive.
