    Hi. I've been following this post and I am excited about the prospects of working on the open source project. I work in a prop quant research role and I agree completely about the need of reliable backtest at multiple time frames and tick time in particular. Let me know how I can help in a development role.

    Best of luck!
  6. Certainly, you can help. Please check out the initial documents on the TickZoom API.

    What are your thoughts?

    Everything going on now is preparing for releasing the code, adding build numbers, documenting, etc. So we're still on track to release around the new year.

    The complete API released before the weekend is out with documentation for all the fields.
