I use the TradeStation platform to generate forex Buy and Sell signals.
I need to take these signals and automatically send them to a subscriber who is subscribed to the signal. I want to do so via an "instant message" sized program on their desktop and ALSO allow them the ability to turn on SMS (text messaging) to their cell phone or other device.
The tradestation platform will reside on a server.
The platform will generate buy and sell signals for subscribers to receive.
the data will be: 1) TIME and Date of signal, 2) BUY or Sell / Short or Cover, and 3) PRICE.
This data is generated by the tradestation platform and can be written to a FILE that can be "grabbed" by the software you will write and then distributed to the desktop application (the size of an instant message window with the ability to send via SMS text to cell phone AND/OR email).
The software will only work if the subscriber is a paid member. In that case there will need to be a module that only we can login to to enable or disable the membership. I want the ability to also be able to UPLOAD a tab delimited file in order to upload many members at one time.
firstname, lastname, email.
As soon as they're account is created they will be issued a username/passwrd in order to login to the software to receive the signals.
