Tutorial 43 – Importing an ELD into TradeStation

Welcome to tutorial 43 in this series of tutorials designed to help you learn EasyLanguage programming skills. EasyLanguage is a programming language that was developed for the Tradestation trading platform that can be used to write programs to help in the technical analysis and trading of foreign exchange, commodities (e.g. the Dow e-mini, S&P e-mini etc), options, and stocks.

Please join our email mailing list if you have not already done so and we will let you know when we release new tutorials or programs.

What is a Tradestation EasyLanguage ELD file?

Tradestation uses a proprietary format to store EasyLanguage programs. These files have an ELD extension. ELDs make it easy to transfer programs from one user to another and ensure that associated functions are bundles within the ELD.

Some of my clients expressed confusion about how to get an ELD into Tradestation and so I created this video to go through this straightforward process.

This is a beginner level tutorial.
