Crypto trading vs forex webinar playback

Which trading asset class has more profit potential?

 

Crypto currency vs forex webinar playback

Idea of questions came from:

First link

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1875390.20

Here were the questions to the participants:

1. Do you believe the volatility in crypto can make you more money ? Do you lose more if trading manually?

2. Does your major forex broker allow trading with crypto? Any small coins others than BTC, ETH, LTC etc? Do you see similar behavior in forex brokers as you would with large crypto brokers?

3. Outside of technical indicators, do you use any quant techniques? For example?

4. For crypto, which technical analysis indicators can work well in a predictable manner ?

5. If you can to choose which asset class, would it be only crypto or forex? Why?

6. Do you believe you need tens of thousands of dollars to be an effective forex trader? Do you also you can start crypto with literally nothing?

7. As a crypto trader, do you find it very difficult to trade dues to the unpredictability of it? Is there any predictability within forex? If so, what time frame an under what conditions?

8. Do you think the pricing behavior of forex and crypto are the pretty well the same outside of the unpredictable volatile nature of crypto?

9. Do you believe in this statement: main difference iin Forex, we could make big profit from it, but in crypto it made for little profit.

Or this statement: Money is so fast in Forex, so fast to bankcrupt too if you made a wrong position. Crypto is safer, money can multiply too if you spot a coin before it pumps. So my vote is for crypto.

How about hthis statement: Forex isn’t easy, yes, but the level of insider trading in crypto might just make up for that difficulty.

Death of Apple started while crypto currency event tonite

Death of Apple started while crypto currency event tonite

Apple is now rotten to the core. I posted my opinion from a personal experience with their support advisors, social media messaging and retail network. I made a video of this experience just now.

 

As a result, I feel I am not as confident with Apple service for premium product. As a result, I made a silent three video which revealed a new strategy to deploy these trading system on highly secure operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD.

Don’t forget about tonite’s webinar event:

Excel add ins from CoinMarketCap to Redis

Excel add ins from CoinMarketCap to Redis

If I do this XLQ (for Coin Market Cap data), I should be able to push the data into Redis using this Excel add in

https://www.cdata.com/kb/tech/redis-excel-trans.rst

In beta for now

https://www.cdata.com/drivers/redis/excel/

Will I be stuck on Windows? It seems CCXT does support CoinMarketCap but it MAY NOT give the data for % change as in XLQ

CoinMarketCap

CoinMarketCapvia xlqPlus you can work with data for cryptocurrencies from Coin Market Cap (currently over 1300).

Includes formulae for their Rank, MarketCap, Available Supply, and 1 hour, 24 hour and 7 day percent change.

Data is updated every 5 minutes. http://www.qmatix.com

Looking at this CoinMarketCap directly, it seems easiest just to work their end point as described here:

https://coinmarketcap.com/api/

You will not be able to get references from the exchanges so the next question is how to get a quick reference in which exchanges supports which coin.

You could use this example to list out all the coins (symbols) to react to:

In other words, they’ve built up a sizeable long position over the past months and their breakeven is closer to $16-17k so this is a desperate attempt to pump and dump. Watch out for the con people and do not get suckered in. Miners are already churning faster than demand and it’ll all normalise on the bitcoin front this year. No more insane gains.
This is cool, then the fair value of 1 BTC will become > USD 400,000 HODL !

My Joke Cryptocurrency Hit $2 Billion and Something Is Very Wrong
1. hope he kept some doge for himself.
2. how fiat works and how the human economy works is even more cryptic, illogical and parasitic (than commensal). (given none of the other animals depend on this method of viability).

banks borrow with less rate and lend at higer rates! if this can work, then why not doge?

reality is, money is a human fairytale. anything is possible. even a Doge

Jamie Dimon says he regrets calling bitcoin a fraud and believes in the technology behind it
https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/01/09/jamie-dimon-says-he-regrets-calling-bitcoin-a-fraud.html

its not his fault / this man has been in news more because of bitcoin than any of his company’s achievements

cryptocurrency investors who did not do their research, did not know that j p moran was heavily invested in the ethereum alliance and they failed to question why the ceo of j p morgan (just another private bank) became the official bitcoin doomsayer…

64 bit version Dukascopy Forex tips with Bitcoin crypto addition

64 bit version Dukascopy Forex tips with Bitcoin crypto addition

This is correspondence from some very knowledgable in Dukascopy JForex on tips for Memory, Installation, and surprise Bitcoin trading


1) JForex heap space
it says min. RAM 1GB here: https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/trading_login/
But it is too little most of the time.

Do you use 64 bit Java ?
Have you increased the heap size?
Probably you have, but just in case here come my instructions on this topic

—> I have done this which helps


2) Allow more memory usage of JForex
Don’t use the installed JForex, use Launch JForex 3 (No-installation) instead!
To increase the memory you have to edit the JForex start file, which you get from this website if you click on “JFOREX DEMO START”: http://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/trading_login/marketplace_demo_login/
You can use the right mouse botton to save the file to a destination where you can find it. From there you should be able to edit it.

Here is everything in detail:
a) First of all please check your operating system. It has to be a 64 bit operating system.
b) Then check your Java version. It has to be a 64 bit version. If not, deinstall your current Java and install the 64 bit version. You can find it here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html
download the latest JRE 7, 64 bit version: Windows x64 . Take Java 7 as it is better tested with JForex. But it should run with Java 8 as well.
c) Instead of running JForex from dukascopy.com, you have to download the jForex.jnlp file on the hard drive and edit it as mentioned above.
d) Open the jForex.jnlp file and search for the following line :
<java version=”1.6+” initial-heap-size=”32m” max-heap-size=”512m”/>
e) Edit it and set the max-heap-size to 1512m or more. This gives JForex 1.5 GB of max. memory or more.
f) Then run JForex from the modified jnlp file on your hard drive by a double click. Log in.
g) Be aware: when Dukascopy makes JForex updates, you might have to download the new jnlp file again and redo the previous described steps.

 

-> Have not tried but prefer to run the downloadable self running without the JNLP option


You might then see that JForex uses way more memory than 700 MB, e.g. while back testing, you will see this usage in the task manager.
You can also watch your current JForex memory consumption in JForex by activating the box “Show Java memory heap”, you can find this in Menu Tools->Preferences->Advanced.

3) Running serveral JForex
Have you ever tried to open several JForex on the same account.
This shares CPU cores and should increase speed.
Maybe you should open 10 instruments per JForex. Subscribe only to instruments, which are used in the opened JForex.
—> that would be useful but a wonky programming trick. Would it not just be better to have more RAM on a server while watching more instruments? e.g. in my case 40 to 60+

—> Not bad so congrats on that. I am getting more comfortable but i may do topic of it next Monday


6) BTC/USD on Dukascopy
Have you also detect Bitcoin mentioned here:
https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/jforex/forum/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=56002
https://www.dukascopy.com/client/javadoc3/com/dukascopy/api/Instrument.html#BTCUSD
Seems they get ready for Bitcoin and Ethereum.

—> This is HUGE so thanks for these notes

Which Bitcoin crypto currency bot project? Gekko vs Tribeca vs Blackbird

Which Bitcoin crypto currency bot project? Gekko vs ccxt vs Tribeca vs Blackbird

BryanWelcome to 2018! Let’s kick ass this year!

Which Bitcoin crypto currency bot project? Gekko vs ccxt vs Tribeca vs Blackbird

This is so confusing but I lay it on the line with this query

We met sometime in the distant past, and we’re LinkedIn. Anyways, I was learning about crypto trading bots on YouTube and came across your videos. I was excited to see you’ve been checking out ccxt and gekko. I’m looking to experiment with arbitrage using automated software. I need to learn a lot… about a lot. First, I want to pick a tool and start looking at data. Where are you at with these and which would you recommend. I don’t know either JavaScript or Python so with would be fun to pick up.

BTW have you checked out Blackbird and Tribeca?
