Equity Pair Analysis
I would like to create an application that can download data from the internet on stock prices and other security prices through user query which includes frequency, perform calculations on the downloaded data, output graphics, backtest a trading strategy and output metrics and some charts.
For example, user would enter two tickers (F, GM) and a frequency (5 min or Daily or Tick) and training window (50 periods). The app would download the historical data, perform simple calculations requiring nothing more complex then logarithm and standard deviations. Output charts and some simple technical indicators. The app would also perform a back-test of the data utilizing a trading strategy and output an equity curve along with some performance metrics (return, drawdowns, daily P&L)
I have code for MatLab both for the trading strategy and to download the data from Opentick.com. The coder would need to integrate it, create the user interface and expand on the metric reporting. If the coder would like to use a different program or start from scratch, that is fine as well.
Price Sensitive as this is project is for my individual use. I have a freeware program that this system is based on.
