Rent-a-Coder

Rent-a-coder services

We have experiences and specialties in implementing various trading algorithms, such as

  • High frequency, multi-threaded trading algorithms, with reaction time to events < 250ms
  • Event driven trading algorithms
  • Sentiment analysis based trading algorithms
  • Handling orders in multiple accounts at same time
  • Back testing strategies

Every project is different so that we provide highly customized services to meet your special requirements.

  1. Please write your strategies in plain English and provide graphs if you think it is easier for us to understand the strategies.
  2. We will contact with you to fully understand your requirements.
  3. A project charter and project requirements will be documented for customers to review and approve.
  4. We will write the codes and test them on our computing environment and make sure they meet all requirements.
  5. The codes may not run well first time on customer’s computing system. We will use TeamViewer sessions to provide debug services.
  6. Upon requests, we may help customers on adding new features, such as sending out email notice, checking emails to receive third-party signals, crawling websites for important market information.

No project is too small and no project is too big for us.

Of course, we are happy to do Python programming for you if you have any great ideas and would like to implement them. Please feel free to contact us at IBridgePy@gmail.com
