I'm looking to uncover some figures and percentages based on existing research and data. Essentially, this is the point I'm trying to prove: Companies are hiring employees (more and more, Millennials) who are costly to hire, and even more costly in employee turnover when they leave. How to solve this? By hiring on values versus degrees, so employees are more engaged when they're with your company. How do you find candidates who align with your values? Work with my company. By identifying candidates who match with your values, we'll save you money on both the recruitment side and in employee turnover, plus you'll see an increased ROI because your employees will be engaged with their work while they're at your company. SO, the numbers I need to figure out are: 1. How much can I save companies in recruitment? 2. How much can I save companies in turnover every year (or every 18 months, which is the length of time the typical Millennial stays at a company)? 3. How much...

Scope of work: I am seeking a financially literate (derivatives trading, Black-Scholes, option greeks, binomial models) programmer. Phase 1 will be to create a simple random walk Monte Carlo (or geometric brownian motion) simulating the price of a stock with the volatility as a variable that dictates how much percentage the price can move from time1 to time2, following a log-normal distribution. Simple enough since I created a rudimentary model in google documents that does just that. The more complex part is to design a trade strategy that is based on a modified martingale which will go long/short. I have several google docs available that go into the mechanics of the strategy. Phase 2 will implement the same strategy (should it prove profitable) using theoretical options pricing models to achieve the same results as phase 1 utilizing call/put verticals and condors. Phase 3 will be a backtest of the strategy on real data.

I am a seasoned professional trader with close to 20 years of Wall St. experience. At one point I founded and ran a trading firm that grew to over 100 traders. I have recently formed a hedge fund with a small amount of seed money. Things have definitely changed. It is no longer necessary to have human traders. Instead, we are building a hedge fund of 2 or 3 people and a few computers. A "black box" fund. (I'm not talking HFT.) The fund is deploying strategies with desktop applications that interact via API with the brokerage platforms (in our case, Interactive Brokers). Trades are performed automatically and instantaneously based on our algorithms. As each strategy is deployed, it is tested in real time and scaled according to its success rate. We currently have 3 strategies up and running. The fund is set up and I can bring the money at the right time. My contacts in the business will allow me to scale fairly quickly, as long as we have the performance to excite. However, at this...
