This is a requirement for Trading Strategies for coding in Amibroker AFL ([url removed, login to view]) for execution on the Interactive Brokers Platform through IB's TWS API ([url removed, login to view]).
This is the first of many projects that would be posted & the main one. However, work will be outsourced to only a few coders who in addition to coding expertise, have domain knowledge of Online Trading of Stocks, Futures, & Commodities.
Once we form relationships with some vendors, future projects in this domain will be restricted to them only.
However, Service Providers are required to be flexible, as the entire requirement may not be posted, as we may not have the required domain expertise to state the entire project in full detail, which may become required after the script is used by us. So, some bells & whistles may be required to be added before project is finally considered complete. This is why we are asking for good domain expertise in addition to coding skills.
Developers initiative to add various bells & whistles on his own, after confirmation from us, will be considered as Good Domain Knowledge and being Highly co-operative and result in further projects, restricted to him/her.
However, this is not something that you can simply post on a server or give a demo. You will have to handover the entire script for testing on trust only.
Master Strategy is that Amibroker will login to IB and get details of running buy/sell bid position and other information required like funds balance & etc. Then it will run the required strategies.
Upon disconnection (if it happens) the above step is to be repeated. Basically the software strategy is to be aware of what went on before, in the previous connection.
Strategy will display graphically all actions/results (buy/sell & profit/loss and aggregated profit/loss for the day & so on, with suitable audible alarms upon an alert condition)
First strategy to be done is discussed here ( [url removed, login to view] ), it can be created and tested by following the user posts. Our client has requirement for couple of hundred such scripts to be built, so it will be a long association.
Cost is definitely a consideration in all our projects (though not at the cost of quality & reliability), so please do not quote too high.
Project is required to be completed ASAP, for posting of further projects.
