The development of a tool (trading/risk management bot) that connects to a trading API in JAVA, and which is fed with price-streams and valuations of accounts. The tool should be able to execute tasks (like KILL positions through JAVA command if certain conditions are met), as well as monitor the price feeds for risk exposure monitoring.
There is legacy code that can be used as a reference, but it runs into errors due to updates in the API. The original programmer isn't longer available.
Documentation is also available through the trading brokerage that provides the API.
