I thought it would be interesting to develop a mechanical trading system from scratch with some of the members on ASF.
Maybe this has been tried before here, not sure. I know that it has been done a few times on ReefCap, with some obvious results, mostly positive from what i can gather.
I know very little about mechanical systems, but i am very keen to learn more about them and develop and test several of my own for application one day.
So if your interested, then drop by and add your "2 bob" as we proceed through the development stages.
How about a few ground rules:
1.) There are no such things as stupid questions or suggestions, lets brain storm this together.
2.) If you have 'been there, done that' then please let us work through some of the issues so we get a feel of ownership. Maybe a few hints now and then would be good too.
3.) Those more experienced at this are most welcomed to provide thier guidence and constructive criticsm for us, without you we cannot learn.
4.) Keep in mind we all have different software, lets try to be as generic as possible when talking about code. If you post code then at least label it for us code dummies.
Lets try to agree on the plan for the project first.
As Tech suggested to me, we could go like this to start with:
Anyone to start things off?
