Where to find a programmer to create a charting program

I'm looking to have a charting simulation type program to be created that reads .txt tick data. Create multiple charts with my indicators, have them sync to the tick, and be able to control the movement through the data tick by tick. I searched thouroughly and could not find a program to suit this purpose.

Attempted to create on my own and found it over my head. Am wondering if anyone could suggest a good place to find a programmer for this type of task(trading related). Also, if anyone has any idea how much something like this would cost.

Thanks.

Not sure exactly what you want to do from your description, but it sounds like you might be looking into "re-inventing the wheel?"

It sounds like you have some basic things you want to do, while being able to do it with tic data? And you want to create your own custom charting platform?

I may be unclear of what you're asking, but would one of the commonly used charting programs such as NinjaTrader or MultiCharts not be able to accomplish what you need?

As long as you build a chart for your desired instrument with tic data, that data can always manipulated or sorted into any format you wish.

I may just be a bit unclear of what you are asking.

Whether you hire a programmer or not, it seems like it might be a bit easier to start with accomplishing what you need with one of the programs commonly used.

Any freelancer board. There is a whole cgroup of professionals. Expect to pay 4 digits USD - PER DAY. You can get cheap people from india - then expect to pay less for many many years.

I agree, first try all avenues open via buying premade software.

Thanks for the input. I should have explained what iím trying to create better. It is basically this:
http://www.multicharts.com/market-data-replay/

In specific I just want to be able to move through the data forwards and backwards x ticks per click, and have it sync with multiple tick size charts. This has huge benefit for me as a discretionary trader.


The problem with multicharts is that it will only replay tick by tick for a single chart, not synced between multiple chart tick/time frames, which renders it useless for me. I contacted multicharts about potentially adding this feature and they seem not to be willing to do this.

There was also ninjatrader market replay which syncs all charts, but I found having to play by time instead of building by a specified tick amount per click to be dead slow and quite clunky for my purposes.

Through fairly extensive searching, I was unable to find this type of program anywhere.

I just need the program to be able to build 3-5 charts with 6-7 common indicators from tick data and be able to move forwards/backwards through the data x ticks per click. And have it resemble tradestation charts scaling as much as possible.

I have looked at some of the freelance boards and was going to post, but have very little gauge as to how much this should cost. Am I really looking at multiple thousands to get this done?

Does anyone by chance know any premade software with this capability?

Starting from scrtch it takes months to build it - even when using charting componetns (and no, ninj has self build) takes easily a month.

Now, do you really talk thousands? Seriously, you talk thousands BEFORE work starts just to et a document saying what exactly should be delivered. With examples etc.. You talk thousands FOR ONE WEEK TIME, and that is hardly enough to get a rough framework in, specs ROUGHTLY outlined etc. A mock may take another week, then slowly adding functionality.

Hey, thanks again for the input.

I was thinking about another route that was proposed to me before. I had a post a while ago where I was asking on advice of how to make this program myself.
https://futures.io/platforms-indicators/7861-trying-make-chartinig-program-goes-through-data-tick-tick.html

One guy recommended using his open source software, tradelink. He was kind enough to explain some of how he recommended doing it, but while trying to wade through this myself, I ended up way over my head.

Do you by chance know how much I roughly would be expecting to pay to have someone modify this into the program I was talking about? He seemed to think it was fairly straight forward, but my understanding of this type of work is really lacking.

1) Please don't create posts in Word or Outlook, etc, and then paste into the forum. It creates a really garbled quote entry (see below).

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


I would probably suggest you simply pay the creator of Tradelink to make the changes to his application that you desire. Propose to him that you will hire him to make the change, and that he can then include those changes in his open source application. So it is a win-win for him.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
