Uptick: A a new trading platform

I'm restarting my Uptick project as a data and execution server on  
top of Erlang.


Please feel free to join the group to contribute advice and comments!

Trading systems are essentially processes that respond to quote  
messages. They must always be up and running. Market data and  
execution feeds are your basic protocol handlers and of course Mnesia  
is the data server, shared by all trading systems.

I believe that Erlang is ideally positioned to run and monitor  
trading systems and scale up to trade as many markets as needed. I'm  
planning to create a front-end with AJAX on top of Yaws and use the  
canvas HTML component for drawing stock charts.

The trading platform will be open source and I plan to make money on  
support, custom development and extra products built around the  
Uptick core.

What do you think?

	Thanks, Joel
