I'm new to Amibroker and new to Algo-type trading. I've been trading Options on IBKR and using Trading View (with Pine Script) for my charting and analysis work.
My plan is to move to Amibroker to be able to do more automated trading. I live in Australia and trade the US market - in our winter the market closes at 6am .
My experience using Amibroker with the data feed from TWS has been confusing (after 1 week). I thought I'd be able to stop using Trading View and I'd be able to use Amibroker instead. However the interface between Amibroker and TWS seems to be restrictive ie my access to daily, weekly etc charts is limited.
I could use an alternate data source to TWS. However I do pay quite a lot for real-time data from TWS. So, my questions:
If I use an alternate data source will that give me the charting flexibility I'm looking for?
Could I then stop paying for data from TWS and effectively do my trading from Amibroker? (I would have delayed data from IBKR making placing trades directly a hassle).
