    How To Write A Project Description

    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 financial risk, then you cannot take any short-cuts and skip the documentation phase, this document is your baby.

     

    "IF YOU FAIL TO PLAN, YOU PLAN TO FAIL"

    Benjamin Franklin

    TRADING FOREX 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 accurate turnaround time. 

     

    Why Is It Important

    1. It helps you analyse your system.
    2. It will identify problems with your system before you part with any cash for development costs.
    3. It will show you areas to improve your system.
    4. You can provide the project description to any developer for ongoing work and maintenance.
    5. With a detailed project description from you, we will spend less time clarifying your requirements and quote you a lower rate.

     

    What Information Is Required For a New Automated Trading System

    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.

    • At least 100 words telling us an overview of your project
    • A full list of all the parameters you would like to adjust yourself
    • A list of all the indicators you plan to use, if you want a custom indicator developed, please use a separate document.

    • It would also be useful to add screen-shots of trade entry, exits any anything else that may help us understand how it operates.
