Trading System Design & Coding Services

AlgorithmicTrading.net provides design & coding services. We can implement your trading strategy using the tradestation platform.  All code is delivered in an open source format.  If you have a need to hire an experienced developer give us a call.  Our lead developer has a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering and spent over 10 years in the semiconductor industry as a Logic Design Engineer.

 

Specializing In Algorithmic Trading Design Architecture & Implementation

Our team is capable of implementing your idea in Easy Language for use in automated trading on platforms such as Tradestation. We have designed and implemented over 300 trading strategies and is our number one core competency. We are a software development company with a heart for implementing trading systems. If you have an idea or project – we might be able to help you implement this idea.

Logic Design Experience Includes

Our team has experience coding in Perl, VHDL, Verilog, C, C++, Java, Matlab, TCL/TK and Easy Language. In our experience, utilizing tradestations Easy Language is the best option for most retail traders.  This language is capable of object oriented programming and has numerous predefined functions that make implementing most trading strategies quite simple.  Our lead designer has designed DMA’s, PCI-Express Layers, Snoop Logic and more. While implementing a trading system is quite a bit different than coding a block of logic, there are numerous similarities. For example, in a block of synchronous logic running in an asic, new events happen on each clock cycle. In trading, events typically occur when a new candle is created on a chart.  Logic design engineers are well versed in Finite State Machines and commonly used data structures which can be used in trading systems.

Quantitative Trading Experience Includes

AlgorithmicTrading.net is capable of coding your design, performing a back-test, running optimizations and cross optimizing inputs, monte carlo simulations and performing walk-forward analysis on out-of-sample data. In many ways, coding the design is the easy part.  Much of the post coding tasks center around verifying the idea by back-testing it first, second optimizing it and third running a walk-forward analysis on out of sample data.

Depending on your budget and needs, AlgorithmicTrading.net will run all of the above tests and provide reports and commentary on each stage of the analysis.

 

Your Idea Implemented

If your trading idea relies on a sequence of events, we will more than likely implement your trading system using a finite state machine in order to simplify the code.  For example, perhaps your strategy waits for a gap up when the equity markets open, followed by a bearish cross on a MACD.  Once this happens your strategy goes SHORT the market.  The BUY occurs when you have a gap up followed by a bullish cross. The following bubble diagram shows what your state machine might look like.

Step 1: Fill Out Our Questionnaire & NDA

Give us a call or shoot us an email and we can send you our questionnaire. This form allows us to provide a quote to you based on the complexity of your idea. We might exchange a few emails and/or schedule a phone call to clarify your intent. If needed, AlgorithmicTrading.net will sign a Non Disclosure Agreement prior to you emailing us the filled out questionnaire.

Step 2: Receive A Quote

Based on the complexity of the design, our Lead Designer will provide an estimate of time involved and a quote. If you are satisfied with the price and expectations are clear we will move forward with the design. You will provide a non-refundable down-payment of 50% and the balance will be due once the design is completed. Included in the price is up-to 2 hours of modifications post installation to ensure that the code is working as you expected.

Step 3: Implementation Phase

Our designer will be in close contact with you throughout the coding and design phase to ensure that the architecture and implementation is consistent with your idea. This is done to avoid any surprises once the code is complete.

Step 4: Analysis Phase (optional)

Depending on your needs as identified in the questionnaire, we will back-test the trading system, run optimizations on the inputs, cross-optimize the inputs and run a matrix of walk-forward tests with varying in-sample and out of sample periods.  At each phase of this process, we will provide reports on our findings so that you are kept in the loop.

Step 5: Design Hand-Off & Installation

Once the design is completed, the designer will schedule a time to perform the installation. The remaining balance is due prior to the design hand-off. During the installation, the designer will remotely login to your PC and install the Easy Language code onto your Tradestation platform.  This usually takes less than an hour. The designer will review the code with you and show you how to adjust the inputs and other settings.

Step 6: Maintenance Phase

After the code is loaded and running, you might require a few changes to it. Included in the quote is up to 2 hours of post installation coding. In our experience, once the customer has the code running they might require a few modifications or bug fixes. This is extra time is included to ensure that the code is running as you expected.

 

 

Ready To Get Started?

Visit our contact us page and fill out the form or give us a call at 1.866.759.6546. We will be happy to discuss our coding services in more detail with you. Just keep in mind, coding a trading system can be accompanied with either great joy or tremendous disappointment.  We will code your idea and deliver the code, however there are no guarantees that your idea will be a reliable trading strategy.  Designing and developing trading systems is not an easy task. Once an idea is implemented and back-tested, the results may or may not represent a profitable trading strategy. Trading futures & options involves substantial risk of loss and is not appropriate for all investors.



AlgorithmicTrading.net provides trading algorithms based on a computerized system, which is also available for use on a personal computer. All customers receive the same signals within any given algorithm package. All advice is impersonal and not tailored to any specific individual's unique situation. AlgorithmicTrading.net, and its principles, are not required to register with the NFA as a CTA and are publicly claiming this exemption.

DISCLAIMER: Commodity Futures Trading Commission Futures trading has large potential rewards, but also large potential risk. You must be aware of the risks and be willing to accept them in order to invest in the futures markets. Don't trade with money you can't afford to lose. This is neither a solicitation nor an offer to Buy/Sell futures. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those discussed on this website or on any reports. The past performance of any trading system or methodology is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Unless otherwise noted, all returns posted on this site and in our videos is considered Hypothetical Performance. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY ACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM. ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION, HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAM IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIAL POINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAM WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS AND ALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.

With the exception of the statements posted from live accounts on Tradestation and/or Gain Capital, all results, graphs and claims made on this website and in any video blogs and/or newsletter emails are from the result of back-testing our algorithms during the dates indicated. These results are not from live accounts trading our algorithms. They are from hypothetical accounts which have limitations (see CFTC RULE 4.14 below and Hypothetical performance disclaimer above). Actual results do vary given that simulated results could under — or over — compensate the impact of certain market factors. Furthermore, our algorithms use back-testing to generate trade lists and reports which does have the benefit of hind-sight. While back-tested results might have spectacular returns, once slippage, commission and licensing fees are taken into account, actual returns will vary. Posted maximum draw downs are measured on a closing month to closing month basis. Furthermore, they are based on back-tested data (refer to limitations of back-testing below). Actual draw downs could exceed these levels when traded on live accounts.

CFTC RULE 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.

Statements posted from our actual customers trading the algorithms (algos) include slippage and commission. Statements posted are not fully audited or verified and should be considered as customer testimonials. Individual results do vary. They are real statements from real people trading our algorithms on auto-pilot and as far as we know, do NOT include any discretionary trades. Tradelists posted on this site also include slippage and commission.

This strictly is for demonstration/educational purposes. AlgorithmicTrading.net does not make buy, sell or hold recommendations. Unique experiences and past performances do not guarantee future results. You should speak with your CTA or financial representative, broker dealer, or financial analyst to ensure that the software/strategy that you utilize is suitable for your investment profile before trading in a live brokerage account. All advice and/or suggestions given here are intended for running automated software in simulation mode only. Trading futures is not for everyone and does carry a high level of risk. AlgorithmicTrading.net, nor any of its principles, is NOT registered as an investment advisor. All advice given is impersonal and not tailored to any specific individual.

* Published percentage per month is based on back-tested results (see limitations on back-testing above) using the corresponding package. This includes reasonable slippage and commission. This does NOT include fees we charge for licensing the algorithms which varies based on account size. Refer to our license agreement for full risk disclosure.
