You need better indicators to be used with this

Is this an unpredictable indicator? This seems to be useful the odd time so I will keep it. Realize that other indicators can be used to show more reliability.  I show a few examples of the recent data from the data sets.

Demo of automated head and shoulders with XRB BTC hourly crypto currency data from Binance

This is a powerful indicator or trading patterns which is generated automatically. As explained in the data, I can only get this working with hourly data since it needs about 1000 data points. I can confirm it seems to download hourly data from both Bitmex and Binance using ccxt Python package. Always remember this is the potential market entry point once the closing price rises above the green dot. This pattern also needs to be verified against other patterns and indicators that I have among my arsenal.

Note that this is a very crude chart for mechanical demo purposes with no proper timing displayed on the horizontal axis. It seems to work ok.

I have no interest right now in inverted head and shoulders sinceI only have an interest in longing for now.

Correction from the video means that the green dot should represent the expected price move:

You can see that once the price goes below the neckline it makes a move that is at least the size of the distance between the head and the neckline.

Flag pennants webinar tomorrow and LIVE forex data with Dr Ernie Chan!

In the last few emails I have describe the next generation of trading patterns I am working on. These include flags, pennants, and wedges. As the original source code was from a very popular forex retail trading platform, I have managed to transcode the first set over to Python. There’s still a lot of the debugging to get it working which includes sourcing out the data while implementing the charts. Obviously, this is the hardest part of this project. I do believe these patterns will help gauge pricing direction when your chosen instrument decides to go into a random walk situation. This of course, makes trading very difficult to profit off of.

 

As a result, I’ve decided to do a live webinar/Meetup event around this topic. I want to have an open ended discussion with whomever shows up to get a better handle on the benefits of these patterns. I’ll do my best to introduce you to these topics no different then with my harmonic patterns presentation. These have harmonic patterns have been great for timing entries and valuing an instrument price.

 

As I really don’t want the world to know about this, I will not be making a public replay on this but will only make it publicly available during the live stream. This takes place tomorrow night on Monday at 7 PM Eastern standard time. This will also be live streamed on YouTube at my Quantlabs channel which is Youtube.com/quantlabs

 

The webinar login details are below.

 

Do note know that I will be keeping a very tight timeline on the replay which will only be available for my Quant Elite members which you could always get through my shopping cart at these links below:

3 Month Option found here http://quantlabs.net/academy/shopping-cart/

or Annual http://quantlabs.net/academy/shopping-cart/

 

 

This is with no difference of my harmonic pattern replay, I will only keep this available for all my members for about 24 hours after the live stream is finished. As you know, I really don’t need the world to know about these “trading secrets” that the professionals use. Once this replay vanishes, I will not making this available ever again.

 

As said, here are the webinar details below:

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.

xlq 6.1 for Microsoft Excel market data with Yahoo Finance

xlq 6.1 for Microsoft Excel market data with Yahoo Finance

This Excel add in is one of the only reasons why I would hang on to Windows

xlq 6.1 is available for download from http://www.qmatix.com/XLQ_Download.htm

 

What’s new:

 

Coinmarketcap

 

New formula =xlqPriceInBitcoin(), which can be used with CoinMarketCap to also return their prices in bitcoin. xlqPrice continues to return their US Dollar value.

A crash that could occur requesting data from CoinMarketCap has been eliminated.

Duplicate symbols are now handled by appending a number to those lower on the list

 

Yahoo

 

Yahoo day data handling has been modified to better handle bad data. Although some requests for cryptocurrencies can end up corrupting all data returned. Xlq will now detect this and if possible make corrections, and if it cannot will document the problem in the status view. The problem does not occur if no cryptocurrencies are requested.

 

It also includes extra checks and cleaning of yahoo data for European and Asian historic data where their downloaded date references are incorrect, apparently converting the returned date to a different time zone. For example Australian day data being referenced as Sunday to Thursday, and monthly as the month before (US symbols return a date of the 1st of the month, Europe and Asia will return the same data referenced as the last day of the prior month). Xlq will now look for the different problems in the data and correct the dates.

 

Compatibility change: Yahoo’s old download service returned the Forward Earnings per Share, which was returned via =xlqEarningsPerShare, they also return EPS estimates which they no longer do.

Their new service now returns “eps trailing 12 month” and “eps forward”. To maintain compatibility with the old service “eps forward” was originally returned. For this version “eps trailing 12 month” will now be returned via =xlqEarningsPerShare, and “eps forward” will be returned via =xlqEPSEstCurrentYear.

 

Other

 

New formulae xlqhAveVolume (+ week and month) has been added, calculated based on the preference settings. To avoid the need to specifically calculate one using the available xlqxh versions.

 

New preference setting for DMI/ADX allowing you to choose the calculation method (weighted (default) or EMA) for the xlqxh calculated versions. A separate preference setting remains for the xlqh versions.

 

Added the possibility for xlq to display a popup message concerning information on some recent event. The message will be displayed up to 5 times, unless dismissed and the functionality  may be disabled under general preference settings by changing “Enable Information Alerts” to no. As emails are only sent for new major releases and not minor builds, this method can now be used to notify of such updates and possibly other events such as a source outage, a breaking change etc. Messages will be kept to a minimum.

 

This version also includes numerous internal updates as well as updated  supporting libraries.

 

Note, many historic google requests rely more on the exchange being provided, e.g. if msft does not return data, use msft:Nasdaq etc. Examples in xlqDemo have been updated accordingly.

 

Installation

 

Note: If your license has expired, you will need to renew it in order for this new version to function. Before downloading and installing you can verify your license by right clicking on the Q in the task bar (while xlq is running) and choosing “About”. If the “Good for updates through” date is earlier than the release date, you should renew your license from this page:http://www.qmatix.com/XLQ_Purchase.htm. If your license has expired and you would like to purchase a new license to work with the latest release, please contact me for a discount.

 

This version requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable, i.e. version 14.12.25810 (same as xlq 6.0), which if not yet installed will automatically be downloaded and installed. In such a case the installation process will require an internet connection and a reboot.

If the runtime libraries are not already on your computer, you could alternatively install them from the links on the site.

 

If you visit the site and do not see the new download, your web browser would be showing cached pages. Click refresh in your web browser (pressing ctrl at the same time if needed) and your web browser will show the latest contents.

 

Please email me (leov@qmatix.com)  or reply to this email if:

  • You would like to receive notifications when beta versions of xlq are available.
  • There is anything you would like improved in xlq, or any feature you would like to see.
  • You no longer wish to be notified of new releases.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
