I want to build an options trading system linked to Interactive Brokers. Actually I'm building such a system with the intent of: 1) Generate returns using proprietary strategies, given an investment capital. 2) Sell reusable parts of the software (without the proprietary strategies) to second parties. It's their business what strategies of their own they use, they can use this system as a cross check to control their risk (#2 doesn't tell you how to make money but at least tells you how not to lose much). I'm posting this to test the market. I've got a guy holding some $1M in capital who's now into FX trading and is willing to expand to options provided that I can prove the system works. He's not willing to pay for the development of such a system though. I got several research results which I'd like to cross check with one or several experienced option traders / quants. I also want to find out weather there's anyone willing to invest in the development of such a system in exchange for equity. Numbers are negotiable. More important is to establish a relationship of expertise and trust and break loose from the vicious circle: without money there's no excellence, without excellence there's no money.

I have a suite of online courses. I have students that buy my courses outright and I have students that get into the courses for free through a free coupon. My free coupons unfortunately have proliferated quite a bit around the web, so I'm considering shutting them off (not allowing any new free students). I have a list of 12 excel sheets that are quite messy. They show my monthly revenue for ach month and they tie them to a student name. I need someone with excel skills to calculate just how much the value of a free student is. That is to say, IF a student joins one of my courses first, how much do they on average spend on my other courses. I run promotions bi-monthly and have a lot of cross enrollments. You'll need to go to each excel and see the names of the free students, then compare them across the other sheets to the names of the paid students. If there are matches then calculate the amount they purchase and add that into the total average. Attached is a sample monthly earnings report. *Please keep in mind: there are many students that use the same name but are different people. You will need to control for this possibility and to save the datas integrity remove any names that that appear to be duplicate (ie listed as enrolled in the same course twice, either paid or free)* We can talk in private message over more details to make sure we're on the same page.

Hi We're looking for a momentum-based futures strategist. Who are we: A former trader and analyst running a private account mainly focused on event-driven, fully-automated strategies across commodity and index futures. What are we looking for: Looking to expand our strategies to include one or more momentum-based, fully automated strategies across any products actively traded on CME, Nymex, Comex, CBOT, ICE Europe, or NYBOT. Required skills: 1) Experience coding in Easy/Power Language for Multicharts. 2) Thorough understanding of how to apply basic/advanced technical indicators. 3) Willing to explain and/or code strategies and demonstrate success. 4) Strategies can be of two main varieties (trend following or mean-reverting) though obviously anything that works and creates profits will be considered. 5) Successful strategies have high per trade profitability and low drawdowns with hold times of a few minutes to a few hours. We are not looking to compete in high-frequency nor do we want hold times of days or weeks. Ideally, 1-5 trades a day around the clock. If you feel that you can help us with this, please reach out with a general idea of what you have to offer and what you would like to receive from the relationship. Godspeed!

My company is in the field of tabulation / data processing and other market research related business. We have the need to find qualified freelancers who can create tabulations using Quantum. Using Quantum is a strict requirement as Quantum is the system we use in-house. This work would be on a per-project basis. We intend to have projects on a routine basis, possibly on a full-time basis. Candidates should: 1 - Be proficient in Quantum: We need freelancers who can be provided a tab plan and data and get started on their own. We do certainly want you to ask any valid questions when they arise and will support you, and we understand that certain projects may be beyond your skill level; however, we do require freelancers that can work on their own and communicate issues efficiently. 2 - Be dedicated to meeting schedules: We will always provide as much notice and time as possible and we will never expect unrealistic turnaround, but once a project begins and the work starts, we need to rely freelancers who take adherence to schedules very seriously. 3 - Be looking for a long term working relationship: We would like to develop a mutually beneficial relationship where we can further your career and financial well-being, while also providing exceptional service to our clients. There will be an upfront investment in time and money on my end, and we are not looking to outsource just a specific project - we want to find quality team players. 4 - Be open to expanding the tools and methods you use for creating Quantum specs: My company has proprietary in-house tools that help us to create extremely consistent Quantum specs very efficiently. We may share these tools with you once we have a strong relationship. We have other areas that we can use quality freelancers for, if you have the willingness to expand your knowledge base. If you are interested in this opportunity, if we choose to move forward with you I will provide you with a paid trial project. After successfully completing that project, we will move onto real client projects. If the above interests you and you would like to move forward, please answer the following questions and provide any other information you would like to. I understand your time is valuable and limited, so feel free to provide short, informal answers - I am looking for your knowledge and understanding, not to judge your writing skills or English skills. 1 - Please describe your access to Quantum (such as is it shared with other users, do you have your own installation on a machine you own and control, etc.) and whether it is Windows or Unix / Linux. 2 - Please describe your data security, such as how you would keep any data or materials provided to you secure, your backup procedures, etc. 3 - Please briefly describe the tools you use when programming for Quantum, in terms of what software you may use to help with creating your Quantum specs, etc. 4 - If you have any references, example tables, work history, etc. that you would like to provide please do so. I look forward to hearing from you. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have.

I need a open source python app, preferably DJANGO framework with a MongoDB data repository for historical storage to replace a tool I've been using for a very long time, but will no longer serve my purpose. The tools is the CATZ program. http://cyclesresearchinstitute.org/cats/ This tool creates a spectral analysis output file for data that is imported into it. I want a simpler application that only executes spectral analyses for two types of data: day and minute. The source data sets will be market data at either a day granularity or minute (intraday) granularity. The deliverables of this project will be tested against my CATZ program outputs to ensure the application is creating the exact same results. Here is a set of definitions from an analytical perspective to which this app must perform (note for this app, Frequency should be defaulted to 1 always): Spectral Analysis determines the amplitude of cycles present at regular frequency intervals from a single time series. If the interval is 1 then the result is similar to a Fourier Analysis. If the frequency is more than 1 then it has finer measurements than Fourier Analysis. (Note for this app, frequency will be defaulted to 1) This output has six columns of data. Firstly the number of cycles fitting into the full period being analysed. It goes up in steps of the value of the inverse of the & Frequency parameter (which might be set by default of 1) and usually. Column 2, the cycle period in units of the step of the selected folder. The next three columns are the sine, cosine and combined amplitudes found for that cycle period. The last column contains the Bartels test value which is the chance that such a cycle arose by chance. In general if this is less than 0.05 the cycleis probably real, and if it is less than 0.001 then it is very likely so. For moreinformation on Bartel's test seehttp://www.cyclesresearchinstitute.org/dewey/case_for_cycles.pdf Here is the workflow the application must support: 1. select CSV (file will dictate whether min or day is in play - note all data is trading data; therefore, min = 0930-1600 then gap to next day + non-weekends & non-holiday. Day is non-weekend, non-holiday) 2. Take logs of each value to the base 10. Values must initially be positive 3. Execute spectral analysis as defined above 4. Create .csv flat file saved to desktop having the six columns described in speclog.csv, and also store to historical data repository for future reference Data Storage: The application should store all previous studies, and make them available for recall via a simple webpage with hyperlinks to open and download to CSV. Naming convention for storing historical cycles: TickerSymbol_DateOfStudy_TimeOfStudy_Type(i.e. Day or Min). Mock up UIs will be provided once a resource has been selected. The final deliverable of the project is to load the application, all code, & database onto my private AWS environment and facilitate my testing of the app to satisfaction. Handover requirements: ALL code must be documented with psuedo code for each stance of code using English language. A data model diagram must be provided that matches the data repository. All data elements of that model must have a definition and laymen name associated in a separate dictionary document. The model & dictionary can be basic (i.e. excel, powerpoint, word -- not visio). ALL SERIOUS Resources must type Mickey Mouse in the subject line of response in order to be considered - those that don't will be automatically tossed out.
