Version 1.0.1 (Trial Download)
Posted: September 12, 2021
Adaptrade Editor is a point-and-click trading strategy editor, designed
as a stand-alone Windows program. (Note: Editor is also integrated into
Adaptrade Builder. If you plan to take a trial of Builder version 4.0.0 or later,
that trial will include Editor, so there's no need to take a separate trial of Editor).
You can use Editor to write trading strategies for TradeStation,
MultiCharts, NinjaTrader 7/8, MetaTrader 4, and AmiBroker using point-and-click user interface elements, rather than typing
scripting language code into a text editor.
Note: This download is for the trial version only. The
trial version and the regular, licensed version are identical except
that the trial only runs for 30 days and cannot be activated to convert
it to the licensed version. After purchase, the licensed version will be
available through the license portal online through your account at
Softwarekey.com; current licensees should visit the
customer license page
and click the Download button to obtain this
release. The licensed version is activated using the license ID and
activation password from your purchase receipt (also available on your
license page). See Ordering Information
for more information on installing and activating the licensed version.
