I am thinking about writing and publicly posting a trading bot (with source code), just to help new traders get started with writing their own scripts and accept donations of course Smiley.  Is there a particular language people would prefer I write it in?  I currently have some form of it in C# and Python.  But I could port it to Java, C++, or something else?

After we have thousands of these running the charts on bitcoincharts.com will look just like the Wall Street charts! Goings up and down every few seconds!

thanks for the related topics.  Since python is already available and I am not that well versed with it, I will see what I can do to help out potential .Net traders with C#.

The first two are barely implemented, and for the third the owner wants commission for some reason.

The third one it sounds like he will be running the algo on his computer and you have to give him your money... That sounds like a terrible idea.  You might as well just kiss it goodbye xD.

If I made a lot of money on a bot, eventually I'd release it once I feel I made enough from it.

I'm rewriting my bot in C from python. It's 150 lines so far and I've only implemented a tiny part of the python script in C. It takes about 10 times more code but I like C.

Why bother releasing it? you are just hurting your profits by doing that...

It depends how much further profit is worth in comparison to the interest in seeing other people's opinion etc.

Well if someone makes an open source trading bot, I'll certainly be peaking.

"If I made a lot of money on a bot, eventually I'd release it once I feel I made enough from it."
That reasoning is wrong and dangerous, based on that statement I assume (but hope to be wrong) that you will not produce a winning robot.

Also, to produce a robot that buy an sell through an API is not the same at all as creating a profitable strategy. Cf. building a taxi vs. driving it. (And on that analogy: I don't think anyone expects to get the taxi for free...)

please dont use these bots if your looking at this thread.. the way they work is having a whole bunch of noobs using the bot in its standard form while the bot maker is cashing in by using a bot that exploits the trading method of the released bot..

I'm torn between offering to buy a bot, or writing one in the only language I know.... Autohotkey
