Universities have a lot of post-docs who will do any job for food. Why don't you start there?

I am not the only one in the world hoping to benefit from this forum. I just opened a title here and was ready to argue with anyone who was serious. But I think I'm in the wrong place. I've seen people who have experienced what I've been through in other forums. The man is revealing something serious, he wants to discuss it and he will hire the appropriate people in his company. But he is attacked by a lot of idiots and useless people. And he says, "I'm in the wrong place." I don't have to talk to anybody here. If you're interested, I'il discuss it. I have no intention of dealing with stupid and silly people. Really smart and interested people write here from now on. By the way, the words I wrote here are not for you. I just wrote it for everyone to understand my mind.

Fine, why don't you describe your strategy and we can talk about that?

Super idea. But my strategy is too long to fit in here. I'm gonna make two files. Excel file will have the necessary data and Word will have rules. I think it is not possible to share files in this forum. I'd appreciate it if you could tell me a way to get the files to the interested people.

Thank you very much, but wouldn't it be easier to send it by e-mail?

My strategy can't be stolen, I've already formulated it to hide its content.
FWIW, the interesting piece for me is this.

A good start is to deliver undocumented,unreadable. spaghetti code. It is not hard to find (non)programmers with these valuable skills.

My understanding is that OP will provide the coder with requirements without unveiling the trading strategy per se. OP isn't talking about of well-/poorly- written code.

I am grateful to friends who seriously question the matter. I want to do this to prove that I've developed a really successful formula. I will give you a formula. It's a template. When you insert the data of the instrument you want in this template, it will work consistently over 80%. All backtest models in the literature endeavor to fit formulas into the data. I have developed an independent template. it doesn't matter which instrument it is. Whatever data you put into it, the same success. But I couldn 't explain to many stupid Quant. Let me give you an example: I say I can tell you the names of all the people I don't know crossing the street. They say to me “Give the name of the people who will pass through it in advance. I will memorize it. When these people pass through here, I'il tell them their names.”  So quants, financial engineers, strategyists and analysts don't understand that I have a template formula independent of all variables. They first see the data and make up the formula. I say whatever you put it, it will be in accordance with this formula. Now I'm trying to show everyone something about my strategy.

Exactly! That's the scary part.
When the requirements change (as they ALWAYS do), who foots the bill?

Is this a product that will last a 10^3 years or a throwaway software prototype?

In fairness, OP probably doesn't have a clue what software {requirements, cost$, projects} are..

95% of software projects fail to deliver what the customer wanted, on time and within budget,

Risks are
  • Estimation and scheduling. ...
  • Sudden growth in requirements. ...
  • Employee turnover. ...
  • Breakdown of specification. ...
  • Productivity issues. ...
  • Compromising on designs. ...
  • Gold plating. ...
  • Procedural risks.
It seems OP has a .edu background, so this would be an eye-opener.
