Semi-automated trading program

Looking to hire a programmer to help automate and backtest my trading strategy using the CTS T4 trading platform API (here's link for more info: [url removed, login to view] ). C# or C++ language preferred.

Initial requirements for the program are below, and I will communicate the strategy specifics upon hiring.

Almost undoubtedly, some of these may slightly change or I may add or subtract as the project progresses.

Program requirements

• Ability to ‘read’ 3rd party charting/data service and identify potential trades based on various criteria (i.e. Moving Avg indicators, trend lines, support/resist). (I currently use the eSignal charting program, but the CTS T4 also has charting capability).

• Adaptable. Ability to expand program to include additional parameters.

• Ability to trade/track at least 4 different markets/instruments with the ability to add more.

Execution/Trading Parameters

• After entry, automatically place Target, Stop Loss, and Stop Profit orders (for example: entry Buy 1 at 100, Target sell at 120, Stop Loss at 90, Stop Profit triggered if price hits 50% to target then order entered at 50% pullback to original entry price (50% to target = 110, then Stop Profit order entered at 105, which is 50% between 110 and 100)). Also, the ability to use a Trailing Stop order in place of the above Stop Profit order.

• All types of orders must be able to combined, as is currently possible in CTS T4 (GTC, OCO, Activation, etc..).

• Join Bid/Ask if price volume goes above/below certain amount, and lift/hit next price if Bid/Ask is above/below certain percentage of that volume.

• Pay up/down a specified change in price if Stop Loss is missed

• Order cannot be placed which adds to a losing position

• Order cannot be placed if dollar amount of possible risk is above a certain amount or % of equity

• Order cannot be placed if a specified risk/reward ratio is not met.

• Order cannot be placed if loss for the day is a certain dollar amount or a certain % of equity.

• Order cannot be placed beyond a maximum quantity

• Pull orders if volatility spikes

Skills: .NET, C# Programming, C++ Programming
