For this project, I need someone who understands both VBA and Python. I have a VBA stock-trading algorithm that I need translated into Python and modified to work with quantopian.com (which uses a Python-based coding language). Strong knowledge of statistics and permutations is required for this translation; there are concepts in the VBA algorithm that cannot be effectively coded in Python without knowing how to account for the various permutations.

Basic knowledge of how trading algorithms function is required.
