Over here: http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?threadid=203972 is a help-wanted that brought tears to my eyes and spasms to my big colon. The text reads: Systems Execution Desk Specialist (EasyLanguageÂ® and NinjaScript) (LaSalle St./Downtown Chicago) Our Systems Execution Desk is seeking a qualified, creative EasyLanguage Engineer to help design and develop technical analysis studies and trading tools using EasyLanguageÂ® and NinjaScript. â¢ Provide technical assistance to active and institutional traders to translate their trading ideas and approaches into customized studies and automated trading strategies in EasyLanguageÂ®/NinjaScript. â¢ Help advanced users and third-party developers extend the capabilities of EasyLanguageÂ® and NinjaScript via C++ DLLâs, including algorithmic trading solutions. â¢ Develop EasyLanguage/NinjaScript studies and other tools for inclusion as built-ins with the TradeStation/NinjaTrader software. Requirements: â¢ Solid experience in technical analysis and EasyLanguage. â¢ Excellent written and oral communication skills. â¢ Series 3 Licenses preferred (or such licenses must be obtained within 90 days). Preferred: â¢ âLiveâ Trading experience in the financial markets (equities, futures, options, forex). â¢ Experience in C++, EasyLanguageÂ® (required) NinjaScript (preferred) How many of us here qualify? A dozen maybe? Reaction #1: My feelings were hurt that they weren't seeking EasySignal coders Reaction #2: Excellent communication skills? For when a client asks you to code up an MA crossover? Don't fall over dying laughing? Reaction #3: Technical analysis? We're supposed to use something that doesn't work? Reaction #4: Live trading experience? If by that they mean successful, which of the dozen of us would even remotely consider going back to a 9-5 job? Who else here could apply? I am interested in your reactions. Thanks.
