hype from fiction of popular Bitcoin and crypto currency exchanges

I have put together a 20 minute video explaining how I plan to move ahead with this crypto currency trading confusion. It seems the withdrawal out of certain exchanges can get sort of hairy. Watch my video here for your thoughts:
See the links of video here http://quantlabs.net/blog/2017/12/separating-the-hype-from-fiction-of-popular-bitcoin-and-crypto-currency-exchanges/
Here are some recent comments from the video so far:

 

Hey Bryan, thanks for the vid! I started trading with crypto a couple weeks ago and finding some “AH-HA” moments that has costed me some coins in the process. No biggie… I agree, I read some opinions online regarding Bitfinex that had me stay away from it. Regarding IOTA, I been getting conflicting reviews that, again, has me on the sidelines with this coin and just watching it for now. What are your thoughts on Cardano (ADA)? Let me know what your take on this coin. As always, your input on things is always appreciated. Cheers!

 

…You are right that Bitcoin withdrawals can sometimes take a few hours (usually around 30 mins), but let’s put that into perspective….

Is this a valid trick of the trade for doing AI in trading?

Is this a valid trick of the trade for doing artificial intelligence in trading?

The trick, then, is to take a more thoughtful approach to deploying AI. Technical prowess obviously matters; Sentient employs a couple of dozen AI experts and constantly researches new methods. But business models matter enormously, too.

Apparently hedge funds have a limit on how they apply artificial intelligence. What are they?

The classification system that gauges the relative merits of these strategies is itself run by machine learning. But humans do the actual trading, following the algorithm’s instructions.

Thanks Bryan

Chat with a trader: Python Quants

If you want to start or continue working with Python as a group. I would recommend start looking into this group who set the standard somewhat for Python algo traders. There are others who seem to set the stand but they are not doing well in terms of trading performance. This same standard group keep cutting back on their features. If you want to something more standardized, check this group out.

As said, I have just raised the price for all my courses which will be featured in a completely different way. More news will be coming on that in a few days with new marketing videos to showcase this product.

 

Thanks for reading,

Bullish signs define new capitalism of NEW capital flow

Here are the latest bullish reporting signs of how things have progressed through the year and well into next:

 

ETFs now a new way to measure capital flow vs futures/options which is losing significance to new competition

https://amp.ft.com/content/83b26c8c-d42c-11e7-a303-9060cb1e5f44

CME and CBOE is now legitimizing Bitcoin as a new asset class. They only use the exchanges but use them  as the underlying but the capital for these future contracts on flow around these products. It will link them but not dollar wise. It is another reason to no go full gusto on the directive products since they are not backed by real $ only momentum of what is listed in the crypto exchanges.
