AmiBroker Consulting

I have over 13 years of experience coding and programming in AmiBroker with nine of those on a full-time basis as the Director of Research for Connors Research. I having been programming since 1983 with six years programming at Microsoft on the Excel team. If you are familiar with AmiBroker’s Custom Back Tester (CBT), I am an expert, and the CBT is a must for difficult-to-code, complicated strategies.

I can help you with existing code either by writing parts of it or fixing bugs. I can create code templates that you can then customize for you own strategies. If you have custom charts or indicators, those can be done too.

I bill by the project so you know ahead of time how much your project will be.

For those of you wanting to learn how to code and test your ideas, see my AmiBroker & Back Testing 101 course.

When I began working with Cesar, I had an idea for a long-term trend following system that I thought might work. However, I had no way of knowing for sure whether the strategy was profitable because backtesting and programming seemed far beyond my capabilities.

Thanks to Cesar’s excellent programming skills, he was able to demonstrate that my strategy was profitable, but not exceptional. He then provided me with a list of adjustments that took the strategy to another level.

I will forever be grateful for the improvements Cesar suggested for my strategy. His thorough research has allowed me to trade the strategy with a level of confidence that I could never have found on my own.

Trading Research Consulting

My 12 years of professional experience in designing, coding, testing, and validating trading systems is at your disposal. I specialize in quantitative research. If you can describe rules to your trading strategy, I can code it. I can assist you in the development of your strategy along with evaluating your strategy using common metrics or custom metrics that you have.

I can help validate your existing strategy. This can give you peace of mind that no coding errors exist in your strategy. Strategy validation is a very important, but neglected, part of developing a strategy.

Your strategy can use end-of-day data or intraday data. A mix of time frames. It can trade, stocks, mutual funds, and ETFs. You can trade single issue or a portfolio. It can have simple position sizing or complex position sizing.

I’m a beginning trader, and although I had some training in swing trading, I was not trading systematically and I had no understanding of back testing or research.  However, I did have a few ideas that I wanted to test out that I had picked up from reading various articles.  Cesar helped me to develop them over the past year into an extremely profitable strategy.  He has been consistently helpful in suggesting improvements, consistently patient in sorting out my confused plans, and consistently available in making sure that all of my ideas are tested and all my questions answered.  He works fast, his fees are more than reasonable.  I honestly can’t recommend him enough.  Nobody knows what the market will bring, but if I get rich it will be because Cesar helped me to develop the tools to do so.
