Some of you (with 'chuzpe') keep asking me, "why is the GUI so poor?", "its 2011, you must have modern GUI otherwise, you look outdated ...".
Well, the answer is very simple: the focus is in the engine! The engine is the one that will help you finding the optimized strategy, and benefit from profitable signal and trading. Yes, the GUI is very important and it must be simple, but is not meant to be attraction by itself! I want the numbers to speak for themselves!
I know, the GUI is yet not simple enough, still needs some cleaning and polishing, however, its seeking simplicity and will get more attention later when the engine level will be good enough in my opinion. When the engine proves to be a solid platform to generate and optimize best strategies for the right time. At that point, more attention will be invested in the GUI making it easier to use, with a lot of aids and shortcut, but without sophisticated attention-taking graphics, etc.
Whats next for the engine: you should expect an improvement in the script editor. The new version will highlight the language reserved words, functions, comments etc ("IDE" style). Each will have a different color as in modern development environment, making the strategy writing easier, faster and efficient. Again, this will be implemented, with minor GUI, one that is not consuming browser CPU cycles and user attention.
