First of all thank you for inspiring me with all your books, I’ve read everyone and I can’t thank you enough for the effort you probably put into them. That being said I’ve been trading futures for about 5 years now and I compete in the World Cup of futures trading. It’s been an absolute battle and I’d rather shove toothpicks in my eyes than go through that learning curve again. Obviously I’m emailing you as a systematic trend follower and I need your help. I’ve worked with 20+ programmers over the years mostly all of them I have found on upwork. Some are pretty good and some are absolutely terrible. I don’t know if it’s just a freelancer thing or I’m the problem, but none of them can build me the robust trading template I need. What I’m trying to do isn’t revolutionary by any means. There’s a trigger, trailing stops, and some basic algebra for scaling into a position. Question: Do you know of anyone or any firms that offer programming services that can professionally develop my systems? I’m not a programmer I’m just the trader with the ideas and I love spending money on talent. Trading is a lonely sport and I don’t know a single person in this industry besides my broker. I would really appreciate an email back or even better I’ll pay you whatever you want for a phone call.
Your best bet is to get into trading app communities like Tradestation or Wealth Lab. No easy answers. For a long time I did recommend programmers who I knew, but those options are not open now.
