What’s better than Matlab … and free?

Subject: What’s better than Matlab … and free?

Hi there,

Did you know there are some great R packages (same as Matlab toolboxes) for model, algo, and strategy development?

Right now I’m revealing R source code samples that mimic my Algo Course metrics and models. Consider this Phase 2 of the course. And Phase 2 is even better than Phase 1:

* R is open source — it’s a zero dollar investment for you as opposed to thousand$ with Matlab

* My R development and tools appear to be working even better than inside the Matlab environment. I can even develop remotely on my iPad!

So what happens now? I’m building a new quant infrastructure which will populate a large Redis (NOSQL database) cluster for further market data analysis. More details on my Youtube channel here:


Update: As I work on my models, it appears I’ll be implementing a paper trading mode phase very shortly. I’m already hooked up with my favorite LMAX and IQFeed for data.

P.S. Check out my new R blog at quantlabs.net/r-blog for more of my progress in R.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
