I contacted Anthony Cascino at Purelogik to custom build an indicator for Ninjatrader that I had an idea for. Of course like all technology there were many kinks and changes to be made so that it wold work with my system and to my specifications. Anthony went the extra mile and put in the time to make sure that everything was working perfectly. I highly recommend his professional work as the service, experience and fair cost is all worth it! I will defiantly be back,
I decided to work with Anthony after contacting 9-10 ninja script consultants (both on and off shore). I have a rather complex and big project that I spent intensive hours designing and defining after several years of market dabbling and research. I narrowed down to 3 developers that provided competitive and reasonable bids within the same range. I found Anthony to be the most responsive and made the decision to work with him after a 2 hour session discussing each of my requirements in depth. Anthony truly impressed me with this thorough understanding and in depth knowledge of the Ninja Trader platform and intricacies in developing a ninja trader automated strategy and addressing critical points to make sure that the strategy will work real time (many strategies will work fine in simulation mode, but fail in live mode as a result of neglecting such critical points).
I myself am a professional engineer and have very high technical aptitude (although not a programmer) I am very keen on automated technologies and am very familiar with Ninja Trader myself (having been through most of the user guide in detail), so I was able to truly appreciate Anthony’s knowledge of the platform. Although some of the other developers that I spoke with were also very competent in their skill, they weren’t quite as personable and readily responsive as Anthony. As a result I just didn’t quite feel comfortable handing over my proprietary research and design ideas over to them and jumping into such a complex project with them (and risking my budget).
One thing that struck me about Pure Logik Trading before I even submitted a bid request is a statement on Anthony’s website “We believe engineering is a Passion first, Hobby second, and Career third.” This was very important to me, but I was honestly skeptical about this statement before I started working with Anthony, as you’ll find such statements all over the place on the internet and it’s nothing far of hallow when it comes to delivery. I mention this now, because I’m very pleased to say that as far as my experience is concerned Anthony has lived up to this statement and is indeed passionate about his engineering – why is this important to me (as a fellow engineer myself)? Well, because I have a very complex strategy that Anthony is programming for me, and without the passion and self delight in logically programming something great, I wouldn’t be convinced that he or any developer could deliver the intricate requirements that I’ve documented for my strategy on time and the agreed upon budget.
I’ve worked with many developers on many other projects of my own and they’ve either low balled the bid to win the project then scale up the price once they dive into the project or simply not deliver and completely waste my time (I’ve experienced something similar with one developer before I started working with Anthony – he couldn’t deliver a small piece of the pie (one of my project milestones with Anthony), that Anthony executed for me perfectly within a reasonable time frame upon project commencement.
My project is not yet complete, but because it is large I went into it with realistic expectations and defined milestones – Anthony delivered several of those milestones executed to my complete satisfaction and was very patient and even generous with me in adding several additional features not originally defined.
He is truly a professional and meant it when he agreed to complete user acceptance (within reason of course).
Anthony is a very skilled programmer and upon inspection of the code that he developed for me (over 2500 lines so far) in comparison to other Ninja script consultants who claim to provide well documented, properly written, organized code (most do) Anthony’s work is superior.
I do not have any concerns with confidentiality as Anthony signed a Non-Disclosure agreement prior to the commencement of my project.
I hope I have been able to provide the insight you are looking for in choosing a consultant to work with.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but as far as I am concerned, I do not believe that I will work with anyone else but Anthony on my future projects (if he’ll accept them of course) – After working with Anthony, I feel completely justified in paying the premium than hiring any off shore consultant, especially when it comes to matters of trading systems that are intricate and require such great deal of attention, confidentiality and specialized expertise.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the professionalism you company has had throughout the process and I will definitely recommended your services to my trader friends. I also have another indicator that I would like you guys to build for me. Not right now but I’ll be back when I need it done.
Just wanted to drop you a short email to update you on the MC TickScalper indicator you built for me. Just wanted to say that it is working VERY well and we have found no problems at all. Me and my Partner were very happy with the service you gave us from the first time we contacted you till the final touches. When you set everything up for me, the speed at which you got it done was amazing.
We will gladly recommend your service to anyone who is looking to have indicators built for their NinjaTrader Charts. Good luck to you and your business, and if I need anything done in the future I will definitely be calling you.
You were originally right. I am impressed with your abilities, your work, your price, your response time, and your communication. If you ever need a reference, you are free to use this quote and my name; I live in Texas and am retired engineer, actually manager since age 28. Also, I would be glad to write another note or take a phone call from a stranger about my experience with you. I am a retired widower, age 65, so a phone call now and then is no biggie for me, I rarely get them.
Again, thanks for a job well done and I look forward to getting the last request I sent. I know from experience that I will likely not need a strategy nor another indicator, but if I do, you are the man I will contact. Again, thanks!
Just wanted to tell you what a good experience I had using you for the first time. Everything I asked for in my custom program was done fast and at a great value.
The indicator work as expected and I have all ready made my money back.
Thanks for the personalized service.
I just want to thank you for your professionalism and great help.
you have done a great job programming my indicators as per my request and never failed me. you are always willing to help no matter what.
Thank you again
I recently hired Anthony at http://www.purelogiktrading.com to create, what I consider to be, a pretty complicated Ninjatrader strategy. The entire process was smooth and when I received the completed strategy it worked great. Anthony’s also been awesome at following up to make sure everything is as I wanted it to be.
Initially, I sent detailed info on what I desired in a strategy to all the listed consultants on the Ninjatrader website, as well as through some PM’s on the forum. Out of all of the consultants Anthony seemed the most willing to work at understanding what I was looking for, make sure we were on the same page, and also suggesting alternate ways to get the results I wanted and explained the how’s and why’s.
I highly recommend Anthony and will be a repeat customer should I need addition
I would also highly recommend PureLogikTrading.com. Their off-the-shelf products are well thought out and they provide prompt and thorough support. You can tell they are very dedicated in making sure they deliver great products to their customers. I can’t say enough about their follow-up and customer support.
I rely a lot on back testing to help test my trading ideas. They not only offered a great custom solution, but walked me through it and even spent over an hour on the phone to help me solve a problem that was completely unrelated to their product. The first time I used PureLogik, they wrote a custom Ninja Script for me. I later purchased their RenkoLogik product. (which, by the way, is great for those that back test and trade using renko charts).
Today was my first day of really testing out the new strategy (with the LogikUltimateRenko)…….it is way better than the previous version. i don’t know what changes you made, but it made huge difference in it’s results. many thanks!!
