More benefits of easy data manipulation with ChartDirector in Python

More benefits of easy data manipulation with ChartDirector in Python

As I did send out an audio version of the benefit of using Chart Director with Python. I added this as a new source code walkthrough for my new Python 3 Infrastructure Course. I released this last week but you can get that here.

This is now out!!! Here you can sign up for it here. 

Details here of the course

I now show the various time frames you can use to roll back easily to generate new charts. This is much easier than open source Python packages like Seaborn and Matplotlib. Check this out.

Minor heiken ashi Limitation of ChartDirector for Python

Minor heiken ashi Limitation of ChartDirector for Python

This was sent over the last few days regarding this Minor heiken ashi indicator:

(thanks to the person who sent this)

Here is the limitation

Thank you for your note. I am already a ChartDirector user. As a veteran Python programmer, I have noted a few irritating features in ChartDirector including the lack of a useful tool for Heiken Ashi candles. As a result, I have built my own SVG (scalable vector graphics) charting program for my personal use. I have sent my rather pedestrian Heiken Ashi code to ChartDirector for possible inclusion in the future. 
Additionally, ChartDirector’s geometry allows for slightly different spaces between candles but I have hopefully improved on that – see my screen grabs – particularly the bottom one (zoomed in).
None of this is very important to your algorithmic trading, but I thought I would mention my thoughts. I am a rather visual and intuitive pattern trader and good graphics are important to me.

ChartDirector finance demos in Qt C++

Chart Director finance demo in Qt C++ on my Mac OSX

Hunting for good software libraries can be really challenging. You can win some and you can lose some. I was fortunate enough to find this ChartDirector which is an affordable commercial charting package which fits my needs for C++. Although Python does have some shortcomings, this potential stack may meet my needs for rapid application development in C++. Yes, here we go again with Qt. Ugh but it may end well.

 

Check out my quick video on this combination

 

Finance chart C++ demo of Chart Director with Qt

See my previous demo of the C++ set of open-source frameworks which led me to this ChartDirector

 

Check that out here

 

So where do we go from here? Well, if Qt behaves itself and stays stable unlike previous versions, I may stick with this path. It also means I can rapidly start developing my components of all my strategies I want to get underway. As said, I hope it works out, so let’s hear a woo hoo!

 

I sometimes really hate architecting software like this but these are the challenges that we all face. I’m really hoping we have a winner finally. If it is, I can start putting on some private demos of this new trading system I’m working on.

 

This will be part of my Quant Elite membership but you can get all the pricing here:

 

f you are interested in joining, here are all the pricing options:

As I said before, we may be on a path of glory for automated trading.

 

Thanks for reading Bryan

Is ChartDirector a cheap C or C++ Qt charting library decent for 100 USD

Is ChartDirector a cheap C Qt charting library decent for 100 USD

NOTE: Read my comments below as the summary

Infragistics and DevExpress is way to expensive for what I want plus this is C++ and cross platform

Can anyone recommend high speed charting for quant finance in Python to handle 1 million plus data points?

 

Do you know any other QT or C++ libraries I should know about ?? Please comment thanx

It is apparent that there are no solid front end real time charting front end for Java/C++/Qt/Linux so we can only deal with .Net WPF ones. The ones I like  are DevExpress, Infragistics Equity Trading Demo app, and SciChats.
