JP Morgan CEO ‘I’m Not Going to Talk About Bitcoin Anymore’

It looks like Jamie Dimon is eating his words again. After the J.P. Morgan CEO decided to trash talk Bitcoin, it dipped last week but now it has come back. It is basically the old man economics versus the new economy as it starts to rise among us.

Last night I created two videos that helped set standards for measuring volatility in a very frequent basis across all currency pairs that I have access to via IQFeed. I fully explain this in a video which you can access here.

 

In fact, I even made more detailed results in a secret video that you can access here. 

 

I also included a sample data files for download. I’m hoping to use this on a very frequent basis as part of my reporting for my Quant Analytics membership.

World govts fear Bitcoin because they can’t tax it – John McAfee

John McAfee is one of the reasons why I feel crypto currency definitely has a future to invest into for algo trading. There is an article found on RT.com with the following statements:

 

“Our income taxes are the greatest source of revenue, but if everybody’s using Bitcoin, the government doesn’t know what your income is. They can’t tax it, and if you choose to say I didn’t have anything, they cannot prove otherwise,” McAfee

I’m currently tweaking/debugging my latest volatility indicator for Forex Trading. I have found a variety of bugs as well as tweaking it for more intraday trading purposes. It also helps optimize which currency pair I want to trade and upcoming period. As a result, I’m giving a warning to anyone who might be interested in joining my quant analytic video for my code walk-through. I will only make this available for a 24 hr once ready. I will only be able to make it available at that point since it will become part of my secret sauce strategies for my near term live trading. As a result I will be keeping this very exclusive who help compensate my existence to do this. I won’t be able to extend this neither since I only like to showcase these videos to my most engaging audience out there. So be aware of when this becomes available. I am hoping to make this available in the next few days but you know how software development goes.

Deep Learning Promise to Bring Algo Trading For the Rest of Us

Deep Learning Promise to Bring Algo Trading For the Rest of Us

 

This was from someonne in my Facebook group:

From the same source you may like to look at:

 

Ep. 26: Deep Learning Promises to Bring Algorithmic Investing Smarts to the Rest of Us

 

When it comes to groundbreaking innovations in trading, there seems to be at work a distinct cycle of 10 years.

Trend following, statistical arbitrage, high frequency trading – they have all gone through the same cycle.

https://www.qplum.co/documents/may-2017-market-commentary

My view is that there is no simplified way of doing AI/deep learning/machine learning for algo trading. Also, the second link mentions how HFT is going out of date to be replaced by deep learning. How is that possible since deep learning must have a combo of different neural nets and industry contributions. The financial industry is more secretive and then open to share their research. The second link is definitely worth reading.

Here are some updates from someone on my Telegram group:

To answer your question about ICOs; you can make loads of money, but you have to be very careful, spends tens of hours researching each opportunity and preferably get into the pre-sale so that you’re not at the mercy of investors who purchased at a discount compared to yourself, and who invariably dump their tokens on the exchange as soon as they’re distributed. Occasionally you get opportunities like ZRX and KNC that are literally free money, but they are few and far between (increasingly so). ZRX, for example, was roughly a 700% return overnight!

To summarise, I only invest in the insanely popular ICOs with ridiculous demand (like the two I just mentioned), or in extremely undervalued ICOs (this can happen for a number of reasons such as not hitting the hard cap), and I usually only participate if I manage to get into the pre-sale. Other than that, I wait for the ICO to complete and then monitor the price once it hits the exchanges. It often tanks and you can grab yourself a bargain, as long as you’re willing to use some of the smaller exchanges and/or EtherDelta.

Bitcoin In A Bubble? Check The NVT Ratio

Is Bitcoin In A Bubble? Check The NVT Ratio

Could this be a useful ration to check for valuation

https://www.forbes.com/sites/wwoo/2017/09/29/is-bitcoin-in-a-bubble-check-the-nvt-ratio/#d994f376a23f

A comment on my Telegram chart group about this:

…he only problem I can see with the NVT ratio is that daily transaction value becomes a worse proxy for earnings as Bitcoin becomes less of a payment network (and more of a value storing mechanism). Having said that, it seems to do a pretty good job. Let me put it this way; I wouldn’t liquidate my BTC holdings on account of a high NVT ratio, but I might take it into consideration as part of a wider analysis.

So I suppose it depends on how you view Bitcoin as to whether or not the NVT ratio is useful; whether you foresee Bitcoin to be the currency of the future, or more like digital gold.

Anyone ever use any of these exchanges listed here:

India? Really?

Top 2 seem to be: Kraken Bitstamp and Coinbase

 

Any other thoughts? Let me know

 

Here are API projects

Kraken: 

https://github.com/veox/python3-krakenex

Kraken.com exchange API, Python 3 package.

This package is intentionally as lean as possible, and only provides a minimal interface to the Kraken cryptocurrency exchange.

Intended for developers, not traders.

https://www.kraken.com/help/api

Bitstamp

https://github.com/unwitting/bitstampy

 

Coinbase:

Tips from my Telegram chat group:

If you just want to buy BTC with USD, I’d still say GDAX (which is part of Coinbase) is the best. Coinbase is a $1.6 billion company, and trading using limit orders is absolutely free on GDAX. USD deposits are protected under some US scheme, but I’m not sure if that applies to Canadians too. Bitfinex has the highest BTCUSD volume (I think), but I’ve heard of some dodgy stories coming out of Bitfinex. Whatever exchange you use, do not keep cryptocurrency on there for any extended period of time; transfer to a desktop/paper wallet, or even better, a hardware wallet such as Ledger Nano S or Trezor. If you’re using a decentralised exchange (such as EtherDelta) then of course you’re deposits are safe since it is all handled with Ethereum smart contracts.


Bittrex don’t have BTCUSD, only BTCUSDT (which is Tether, a cryptocurrency supposedly pegged to USD). I’ve never used Gemini, but I’d still prefer Coinbase I think, purely because it’s backed by some rather important people.

Most of the APIs are RESTful/HTTP, and as such, are language-agnostic.


it seems go and python wrappers are most popular.

Apparently with Bittrex, you can do market making with C++. It seems you could try a project like

https://github.com/vncoelho/optmarket-bittrex/find/master

 

As for wallet, If John McAfee says Trezor wallet is good, it must be https://trezor.io

How do you transfer your Bitcoins from Coinbase to your Trezor for cold storage? from TREZOR

https://www.quora.com/Can-I-buy-from-Coinbase-and-deposit-into-a-TREZOR-directly

 

More comments via email:

Coinbase only trades several coins. So exchange your fiat currencies for
Bitcoin on Gemini or Coinbase, then transfer the Bitcoin to an exhange like
Bittrex. Poloniex was the best, but they have no customer service and have
had many people leave for Bittrex. Bittrex and Poloniex trade dozens of
coins.

More Facebook comments:

technicals on the bitcoin chart are text book but I tend to think the selling is not over. now is the perfect time to attempt a sell again HOWEVER, who really knows, could sore to old high and then new high too! ;p


 

Gemini.com is much faster to get funds in and out between BITCOIN and cash. Coinbase has security issues and holds your BITCOIN for a week after you purchase it. They do give you the current exchange rate at time of purchase. They also have a high commission.
