How do you charge?
Charges are fixed per project, not per hour. Therefore, once you receive a quote for a project, it is a fixed cost for the programming (unless the project specifications change). The minimum charge for a project is $60. Full payment is due in advance for all projects.
What is the typical cost?
While prices vary significantly, a "typical" trading system or indicator can be programmed for less than $300. However, it is not rare for the price to exceed that amount, which is why I provide free estimates and fixed cost pricing.
How long does it take?
For typical projects the average turn around time is 2 business days or less. Larger projects can take longer based on complexity.
What if there are bugs in the program?
While I do my best to avoid them, bugs happen. Bug fixes are included in the cost. Any bugs reported within a month of delivery will be fixed no questions asked. If reported more than a month after delivery, it is handled on a case by case basis. Some bugs can be a result of Windows Updates, upgrades to the trading platforms, etc., which is why I have to put a limit on the debugging period.
Who owns the IP once development is completed?
Unlike many of my competitors, you will own the IP for any projects that I do for you. I will provide you with all of the source code, and you are free to do anything you would like to with it.
Are you willing to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement
Absolutely, though it is my policy to keep any information we exchange confidential regardless. You can download the NDA form below, or we can use a different one if you prefer. Just send me a signed copy and I will sign and return.
