Most people do not like documentation, it is boring and time-consuming, but if you are a trader and you want to have an automated system built that involves a financial risk, then you cannot take any short-cuts and skip the documentation phase, this document is your baby, it will evolve as your strategy grows.
"IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, YOU PLAN TO FAIL"
A clear project specification will help to keep the costs down for you, as it’s able to shorten the developing time. It also ensures you get the project you have in mind right away without several revisions. If the specifications are not very clearly defined or the programming request is complex then it will not be possible to provide you with our fixed flat fee and an accurate turnaround time. This would also mean the pricing for your project would need to be based on whatever time it takes billed on an hourly rate basis.
If your system is very simple you can provide your project description in the form of an email, but we may ask you to put it in a document if we feel it would be easier.
All other automated or semi-automated systems that are not automated trading robots will require the following information.
Your first step is to download and complete a project description document from the link below, it will become an organic working document that we will both add comments to.
If you need help and would like to look at an example project description document than just click on the link below.
If you wish to have some extra protection of your trading idea, then we can offer you a physically signed Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which will state that all information you send us is strictly confidential and we will never discuss the project with anybody outside ClickAlgo.com or publish material on the internet or anywhere else. If you wish us to sign an NDA before you send us your requirements than just download the form below and send it to us.
An example of someone who may need an NDA is a trader who has been using a manual system for many years and it is proven to make a profit and now they want to automate it and share the idea with a development company, in this case, they would want to protect their trading system with a non-disclosure agreement.
If you would like to convert an existing MT4,5 Expert Advisor to a cTrader cBot than you can supply the EA source code and do not need to write a project description as described above. Do not send us the EA without the source code, if you can provide documentation also than this would reduce the total development costs.
The price to build you an automated trading robot will all depend on how large and complex your system is, the most efficient method to keep costs down for you is to document your system first in the form of a project description (Requirements Document). Once we have this document we can provide you with a fixed price and estimated delivery date.
In the past 12 months, the average cost for an automated system was £150.00, the lowest was £50.00 and the highest was £1000.00
We also offer a service to optimize your parameters once the robot is complete.
You can contact us by Email, Skype or Telephone to discuss your project.
