Hi guys, just wanted to get some of your feedback on this one. Say there's a hypothetical PhD student who comes up with a nice short term strategy, tests it and it is pretty robust. He and another guy find an investor and form a temporary LLC to check it out in practice. They do it for a pre-set time period, and it works. Now, there seem to be two pathways from here. The investor is willing to put in several mil of his own and contact his afluent friends for more etc. Or the LLC members can somehow package it (e.g. into a software) and sell it. If, given circumstances, the second route is opted, what do you recommend? The strategy is not very complex in terms of implementation, but it involves screening all the universe of stocks once a day to find the plays. It's relatively simple to carry out and can be either automated or done manually. Once it's explained, it's pretty obvious and there's a danger that a potential buyer can steal it, unless it's packaged into a software that hides what goes on inside. What do you recommend for the software choice? Who can be contracted as the datafeed supplier? Are there firms that do such programming solutions and don't pose the threat of stealing the ideas? Thanks for your advice and help.
