Dr Ernie Chan’s new machine learning book

Dr Ernie Chan’s new machine learning book

This will be a definite read I need to know for my intro to this popular topic

As I was poking on Dr. Ernie Chan’s website,I found this:

Ernie’s third and latest book Machine Trading: Deploying Computer Algorithms To Conquer the Markets covers a variety of advanced quantitative trading and investment techniques from state space models to machine learning, applicable to a variety of instruments from ETF’s to options. Readers will find most of the materials quite accessible to anyone who has some experience in a quantitative field.

This book can be treated as a continuation of my first two books, with coverage on topics that I have not discussed
before, but it can also be read independently. Software codes for all the described strategies can be found on epchan.com/book3.

Advance praise for Machine Trading:

“It is easy to make simple ideas complex. It is far more difficult to make complex ideas seem simple. In this book, Ernie has done exactly that. I cannot think of any trader who would not benefit from reading Machine Trading”   – Euan Sinclair, partner at Talton Capital Management and author of “Volatility Trading”.

Available for pre-order now at Amazon.com.

Updated: Comment for this book on Bitcoin

Another surprise was a chapter on bitcoin which had possible trading strategies on the crypto-currency. One of the advantages of bitcoin for analysis is that the order book is open and each trade specifies whether it was a buy or sell.

If you have not seen this video posted on futures.io, you may want to visit Dr. Ernie Chan’s view on which programming platform is best for researching models. In this video, he covers all three major platforms including Python, Matlab and R. You may want to watch this to see what one the good doctor recommends.

Quant Elite Analytics PRO

In yesterday’s email I did make a statement about how Matlab can be very different in your automated trading. An actual fact I do believe it will give you trading edge over the other languages. Because of my new upcoming service focusing on trading analytics instead of trading platforms, I can now put all my attention into generating very unique data sets and charts that no one else does.
You can get more info on this new service here
As stated, some of my video coding demonstrations will be permanently removed in the next few months. I have not put together a hard set date yet depending upon my progress on my current software development of my system but that will come in due time. As a result, I highly recommend you to check out my Quant Elite membership.

According to Ernie Chan, Quora is a cool place for HFT and quant trading

This came from the Man who says there are some real deal ex investment bankers on this.  This seems decent as compared to those annoying admin nazis found on Stackover flow.
