Original Protective Put Strategy. These folks have a chat room at marketwarrior I think?

Radioactive Trading Review

KDB+ (institutional)
Backtesting for pros according to but when I downloaded it it produced a q.exe file and no documentation on where to go from there.


options support clearly stated on page
full platform with rule based builder, free trial, might be web based
Could provide some chat functionality, does have strategy building; Lifetime pricing looks reasonable; never responded in forum.

Interactive Brokers (platform and broker)
Allows lots of connectivity for outside platforms, no built-in algo tools, all third party, has options
Software List
Elite Traders might be a good user forum

Key2 Options (options, algo builder, and trading) – worthy of review
Test for $10, purchase for $200 mo
Feb1 – Recommended by post in stack exchange; no response to chat on site; sent message via web form; no responses; apparently support is not really there.
Looked at page again on 4-5-2017 looked pretty good, concerned about support and cost
