Algorithmic trading is only as complex its tools. Cloud9Trader removes all the jargon and complexity to provide an extraordinarily powerful environment to allow you to concentrate on developing trading strategies that work.
Our powerful framework streamlines the development process from concept to live trading. Code directly in the browser, backtest against every single tick for truly representative results* and trade live with your broker.
We’ve also got an efficient, dynamic platform for live manual trading. Stream prices, trade and track your open positions using our super fast, intuitive and fully customizable HTML5 platform interface.

Live streaming charts you can embed in your website and share
With this rich toolset you can determine market conditions, execute trades, manage your risk and track your open positions with ease. All written directly into your browser, no software downloads required.
Our charts are beautifully clean and extremely versatile. As well as plotting streaming prices, technical indicators and even your trade positions, we've spearheaded the use of visual logging as a debugging tool.
They say a picture paints a thousand words. Rather than sifting through textual logs, you can output numerical data straight onto charts as overlay or study, line, area or bar, to see massive data output in an instant glance.
You get the theme. Cloud means that your computer is never locked up backtesting or running live trading sessions. Our servers do all the work.
Your complete history is versioned and saved and always available. All the code you've written, all the backtests you've run and all the trades you've executed always backed up and available.
The aim is to provide a fully featured alternative to desktop software packages such as MetaTrader with all the benefits of cloud based computing.
Our powerful cloud based servers let you run multiple backtests simultaneously against every tick of actual price data from your broker.
With the intense processing requirements, backtesting has typically been done against minute data. For complete confidence in your algorithm you need to be sure to have the exact same result in backtesting as if you had traded live. No compromise.
Your backtests generate complete logs. Results are plotted onto charts to quickly view and analyze everything from positions opened and equity curve to drawdown ratio and risk quantifiers.
Once you've determined which external parameters make your quant algorithm its most adaptable, you'll want to backtest repeatedly to find the best externals permutation for the market you're trading.
Our optimization framework lets you set a range of values and backtests repeatedly every permutation. Results are sortable to quickly find the optimum outcome and full results are available for every single backtest.
If you're not ready to trade live, practise all you like with our free demo account. All the same functionality is available to you and the streamed prices are live and real.

Once you've backtested and optimized your algorithm to be sure you've got a winner, connect live to your broker and run your strategy hands free.
You can monitor your trading session, keep an eye on positions opened and analyse the performance with detailed charts and statistics.
A huge range of popular technical indicators are built in and ready made for you, but we also have a complete framework for developing your own custom indicators.
Like the built in indicators these can be used directly in your trading algorithms and can be plotted onto price charts as overlays or studies. The chart output is highly configurable so you can get them to draw on to charts excatly as you like. Take a look at the Writing Your Technical Indicators overview.
So we're largely geared around algorithmic trading, but if you are a discretionary dealer who trades by charts or on fundamentals, the Cloud9Trader platform pushes the boundaries of what can be acheived with web technologies to create the fastest and most usable out there.
It's also completely customizable. You can drag and drop price tiles and charts into place and save as many layouts as you choose. Just connect up to your broker and trade with extremely low latency in a feature rich environment that suits you.
