Hello, (I am new in the forum! first message!)

I am planning to start using ToS for my trading, but I would like to understand something about the capabilities of the scripting language.

For the kind of trading I do I really need a language which would be capable to be integrated with other languages like R, Python or at least XML. I need the scripting language to be able to "grab" data produced by scripts from outside. I could not find any information about being able to integrate ThinkScript with anything from the outside.

Does anyone know if this is possible? If not can someone suggest me a trading platform with scripting capabilities which would let me integrate with other languages, run in linux machines and work with Ameritrade?

Thanks in advance for any suggestion

So I been answered by ToS support. It looks like while "ThinkScript" can't be integrated with anything else outside of ToS, Ameritrade offers an API which I am now trying to get more info about. If the API is robust enough then I might have what I was looking for.
