    Because I have a hard time finding the dipstick in my car, there is not a chance on the planet I could write my own program.

    Is there a ballpark/rule of thumb what it costs to hire a developer to do it? I appreciate it depends on the complexity of the program and other factors. I'm just looking for a neighborhood.

    Thank you.

  2. It all depends on many factors. I can develop simple strategies on ANVIL extensions for about $500-$800. These are gray extensions where you get a signal and press a button to place an order. They can be converted into fully automated signals then it'll be more plus you will ahve to sign a liabilty agreement.

    For more complex strategies with bars and more fincier screens, it will cost a bit more.
