This sounds interesting!

Hi littlecompscigirl,

This sounds like an interesting undertaking. I have a few questions.

1. What API, Platform, and programming language are you working with?

2. What data provider are you working with to get your data?

3. What made you want to pursue a custom route like this vs. just using an existing retail system?

4. How do you plan to handle back testing? Accessing a data stream is one thing, but building a simulation engine is no small undertaking. Is this something that you are actively planning on?

5. If and when you complete this, what are your goals. Do you plan to trade with this, sell or license it others, etc?

Thanks for taking the time to share this with us!


In the analytical world there is no such thing as art, there is only the science you know and the science you don't know. Characterizing the science you don't know as "art" is a fools game.
