Default Structuring my strategy software

Hi there,

I have written quite a bit of order management software, that I would like to package nicely so that it can be reused in various trading strategies.

Can I package it in 1 class, derived from Strategy, and then derive my actual strategy classes from it? (I am actually trying to do that, but for whatever reason it doesn't seem to work at all)

public class TradeManager : Strategy
// ... this class needs access to pretty much anything a regular strategy
// needs access to, like High / Low / CurrentBar / Add() / ...

public class MyStrategy : TradeManager
// ...this class will implement the trading strategy, and call any methods from TradeManager for managing positions

Or what would you suggest ?

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
