Algo Watcher / Operations Guy

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by elitetrader1993, Jan 8, 2019.

  1. New here - I need a [preferably cheap] trustworthy watcher / operations guy a couple times a month when I'm away who can turn my algo on and off if necessary, and manually exit positions if necessary if the algo fails for whatever reason. Would probably have to be in the Americas to be available from ~3-5pm ET.

    Do any of you have any experience / suggestions / recommendations?

    I might be able to help you out as I am currently monitoring my own algos until 4:15 ET.

    I’ve got a friend down in Arkansas who can do just about anything. I can reach out to him if you like.

    Cold beer is his currency, just keep em cold and the job will get done

    If you do not mind me asking, what language/API do you use for automation?

    Local (SF) student;
    econ, pol.sci., math, acct., fin., P&O, major (means: conversant with some market terms, and/or aware of current events and potential impacts).

    They'd likely have free access to a T1 line (robust 'net),
    They'd be entirely trainable,
    They'd come from a cohort from which you could re-sample, should the current 'catch' not work out, or graduate, or,.....
    They could mow your lawn for additional bucks. :D

    So the person will have access to your account? I am interested myself how this can be done.

    It's 2019. It's a trivial thing to segregate funds or access into a sub-account or for a sub-user.
