A small Toronto based Hedge fund is looking for someone who can devote significant hours over the next week to work on finishing up a piece of financial software that currently searches for new positions based on proprietary algorithms.
The software which works off of an Access or SQL Database imports data from the Internet on a weekly basis and price data on a daily basis. This search and retrieve algorithm is fairly complete.
We need to introduce position sizing logic and risk management formulas to the software. This will invlove creating an algorithim in the current VB program that will size the positions based on user specified and changable paramaters. The positions will be managed by importing pricing data and calculating stop loss levels (already mostly done) Finally, the positions will be added to as certain ratios are reached (This is mostly done in Excel but needs to be ported over the VB)
All logic has been already completed in plain english and will be given to the winning bidder to assist in the coding.
Work to be done in VB / Excel / SQL and or MatLab.
Also have to be able to make the interface look polished and professional so some design experience is helpful but not completely needed.
