TradeStation Code and EasyLanguage Programming Services
Allow me to introduce our Customized TradeStation Code and EasyLanguage Programming Services and myself. I am known as OpusTrader on the TradeStation Forum and TradeStation Wiki. I am a TradeStation EasyLanguage Programmer and I have been a full time TradeStation Trader and TradeStation EasyLanguage Programmer for the past 7 years. I have been involved in programming for over 27 years and involved in trading for over 17 years.
I have a wide range of TradeStation programming skills and experience covering Forex, Futures, and Stock trading, and I have worked for a wide range of clients from private individual traders to professional traders and small hedge fund traders. One of my EasyLanguage programming specialties is building Multiple Time Frame (MTF) TradeStation Indicators like our MTF Price Action, MTF Fractal Channel, MTF MACD, MTF RSI, MTF FTP, MTF VWAP, and MTF Stochastic Indicators.
If you have a new trading idea you want to test. You have three choices (1) manually recording each entry and exit prices into a spreadsheet which is very laborious, (2) programming the strategy which is the best approach if you already know the idea is worth doing because of the cost involved, or (3) use our no programming required Back Testing Tool to quickly get a TradeStation Performance Report on your trading idea. This 3rd option of using the Back Testing Tool is the most affordable approach to prove any new trading idea is viable before having the strategy programmed for you.

To Get Started
The easiest way to get started is to schedule a webinar meeting where I can see your computer and you can explain what you want programmed for TradeStation. During the webinar I will ask questions and get clearly defined specs of your project. If you already have code written that just needs to be fixed or tuned-up, instead of the webinar you can email the code to me for review. I'll come back with questions to clearly identify your needs. I can schedule webinars at 4pm, 5pm, or 6pm Eastern Time any day. To get started send me an email requesting a webinar and what days and times work best for you.
If you prefer not to start with a webinar, you can write down your ideas on a specifications sheet using this PDF example for your outline. Be forewarned, most traders find this a much harder alternative. Once I have your specifications I will then give you a time quote.

Our EasyLanguage Programming Service Pricing
After the webinar meeting, I will give you an estimated time to do your EasyLanguage programming project. I charge $120 per hour, multiplied by the number of estimated hours. The estimate will include a maximum time cap for your peace of mind. Even if it takes longer than the maximum time cap quoted, you will not be charged for the extra time required AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT ALTER VIA ADDITIONS OR OMMISSION TO THE ORIGINAL SPECIFICATIONS! Any alteration to the specs will be charged at $120 per hour and added to the original estimated amount, and the original maximum time cap.
From a practical time scheduling stand point, I have a minimum charge for any programming job of 2 hours.
For example: If I estimate 4 hrs @ $120 per hour, my estimated cost for your project would be $480.00 U.S.D. With a maximum time cap for this example at 5 hrs. @ $120 per hour = $600.00 U.S.D. which would be the maximum amount charged. So the original specs will be coded for you at no additional cost above the maximum cap amount quoted, even if it takes twice the estimated time for me to finish your project, AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT ALTER VIA ADDITIONS TO OR OMMISSION NOT INC
