Uploading this old project from 2000 for historical reference.

Avidus - Open Financial Platform
--------------------------------

The Goal:
---------
Tradestation Like Capabilities including:

	- studies
	- trading strategies
 - Backtest and Realtime Trading Strategy Analysis
 
Technical Premises:
-------------------
- Cross Platform
- No MDI!
- Fully scriptable (or written) in python
- If speed is required, the object may be written in C++ and wrapped
to provide python interface.
- Using QT 2.2 for GUI toolkit
- Componentized, but not necessarily client - server

Why MPL?
--------
The MPL was chosen so as to meet the following goals:
- allow and encourage commercial use, but to ensure all changes to
Avidus released back under the same open source license.
- Any user written scripts can be kept closed
