New article How to create Requirements Specification for ordering an indicator has been published:
Most often the first step in the development of a trading system is the creation of a technical indicator, which can identify favorable market behavior patterns. A professionally developed indicator can be ordered from the Freelance service. From this article you will learn how to create a proper Requirements Specification, which will help you to obtain the desired indicator faster.
Every indicator reflects an idea. Therefore, first you need to
describe the idea, in words and pictures, if possible. If the idea is
not explained, it will be much more difficult for the developer to
understand what the customer wants.
Now you can proceed with the description of the indicator
operation/calculation/display algorithm. Describe the algorithm as a
sequence of operations. The developer will be able to write an
appropriate code based on the described algorithm. If the description of
the idea and the algorithm contains terms, you should explicitly define
them to make sure both parties equally understand their meaning.
Divide the algorithm into stages and arrange them in the same
sequence as you want them to work. Do not jump between different parts
of the Requirements Specification, make sure to properly describe one
block, module or step before switching to the next one.
Use lists to describe terms, as follows:
To define stages, use numbers, lists and bold font.
