Create a calculator to calculate trading profits & losses (answers provided)
Closed - This job posting has been filled and work has been completed.
This simple project is really just a test. I have a trade blotter full of commodities futures trading activity (buy and sell executions). I need a C# program that will calculate the profit & loss of each trade. Ultimately, I would like to know how much money was made and lost in each symbol/instrument, and to be able to view the trading activity for any symbol in isolation (perhaps via drop down menu?). If you can complete this simple calculator project and I am happy with the results, I guarantee there will be more work for you. This simple project allows me to evaluate your programming skills, user interface skills, and ability to work with me. Ideally, I am looking for a long-term arrangement with a good programmer, and this would be the first step. Your code must be easy to understand and well-commented as I am a programmer who will read your code. I have some sample data for you to work with. You will notice that I included the profits & losses in Column P of the Excel spreadsheet as a way for you to check your calculations. I will be impressed if you can do both the LIFO and FIFO method.
I am looking to select a coder that can begin work in 3 days, and can finish the project in 1 week. I will ignore all bids above $200, don't waste my time or your time by submitting a bid above that amount. Thanks.
