Automated Futures Trading GUI Spread Trading C++ X_trader

Hi Im looking for a programmer that can help me create from scratch a generic gui/template that can automatically spreadtrade various combinations of futures via the API of trading technologies X_trader platform. I dont have a programming background, but understand fully how the finished program needs to work and the functionality it must have, so continuous and dynamic communications and feedback is very important in this project.

I can provide all of the calulations that need to be performed, and can provide explanation in writing and via excel formulas.

Looking for someone that has done similar work, can provide good clean well written code, with plenty of comments (for ease of editing by 3rd parties) and can provide complete well written documentation of project and program functionality.

(I May also be able to provide sanple code for various functionality of order generation and manipulation from past projects). Also looking for input and suggestions of how the program can be improved, safety features (stale market checks etc) and most efficient (least expensive timewise) calculations, and also data logging suggestions. I would ideally like to monitor 20 pairs of futures.

It is paramount that you have knowledge of financial products and market terminology.

Looking for only programmers with the following skills:

1. Experience in C++ programming

2. Automated trading / Low latency order management and calculations.

3. Familiar with both Trading Technologies (X_Trader platform) and its API

4. Familiar with markets, products (i.e. Futures) and market terminology (bids, offers, tick value, hedging, exchanges, message/trade ratios,spread/pairs trading, latency).

Please get in touch with your details of relevant experiences.

I am looking forward to developing a good relationship with a good developer and maintaining constant feedback and amendments in the in the project. Please only respond you have the relevant experience.

Ideally the program will be broken down and split into many parts. And we can evaluate together appropriate goals and timelines.

Trading/market knowledge is essential.

The simple spread tool will be very easy to develop. it is the subtle coding required for dynamic moving averages, partial fills, safety features (i.e. stale market checks), password protection, quotes refresh, handling order rejections etc, where the real skill will and programming talent will lie.

Please PM with any questions, your suitable experience, and any questions that you might have.


I require the project to be written in a clean, well commented manner, with documentation supplied for its functionality, I would maintain the full IP and copyright for this generic spread tool.
