EasyLanguage is a programming language that was developed by TradeStation Securities. It is a popular language because it’s easy to learn without specialized training, but at the same time, it is very powerful for trading purposes. The popularity of this language is so widespread that it can be considered the standard programming language in the trading industry.
EasyLanguage code has been in development for more than 20 years, which means it has one of the biggest collections of trading ideas in the world already implemented. EasyLanguage indicators and strategies are widely available across the internet and in major trading publications, which gives all MultiCharts users an advantage over people using other platforms.
Compatibility with another language is much harder to accomplish than controlling your own language, but we decided to go the harder route to give our users the maximum benefit. MultiCharts lets you use the large existing knowledge base of EasyLanguage strategies, which has been continually added to for the past 20 years.

EasyLanguage also provides the ability to write Functions for reoccurring tasks.
