Thoughts on Debugging from algos from a popular forex trading platform

I am also currently deep in the weeds trying to debug a transformed algorithm routine from a very popular forex trading platform. I want this to run in Python which is for my 100% vision of using one programming language for my entire infrastructure. Another one is planned next week. Both are similar to the Head and Shoulders but more specific for Flag/Pennants and Wedges. Both indicators will be very useful to help filter out bad potential trades but more will be revealed as it gets closer to completion.

More notes on my thoughts of debugging these indicators. I find this the best way to understand trading algorithms that you may use for systematic or automation. If you want to learn, get a decent debugger but I am quite surprised I have recently started using this Microsoft Visual Code for debugging. This can be the most challenging part of the whole process in automating your trades.

More from this link:

Visual Studio Code advantages

Both IDEs (Integrated Development Environments) are free but PyCharm has bugs with no simple help. Just go with the Microsoft Visual Code Studio just for the Intellisense or debugging capabilities. I still prefer my Sublime and running the Python interpreter for quicker development.

Both IDEs will run on all operating systems including Linux, Windows, and Mac OS

This was sent out last Friday:

I am doing yet another demo of my new automated head and shoulders indicator. I competed this a few days ago which really pinpoint market entry and exits for cryptocurrency trading opportunities. After my last Python script I highlighted for download, this one works with Bitcoin crypto market data, I have leveraged that power for this new indicator. Do realize that this can be used for any asset class and timeframe. I will demonstrate this on Wed May 23 at 7PM Eastern Standard Time.

 

Automated Head and Shoulders Indicator Details to follow

Note that I will be live streaming on my Youtube channels at youtube.com/quantlabs

I also plan to keep this video playback for my members only for 24 hours after the live stream is complete. As usual, I don’t need the world to know about this.

More details on this automated indicator here.

More corrections on this indicators which was revealed from the video:

As the more experienced folks in my private Telegram group, someone hinted to develop the inverted automated head and shoulders for market reversals. This is even for a longing strategy like the one I plan to implement. Do note my further corrections in the link above.

Did I also mention about the detailed Java based components I need to use to work with Dukascopy API and JForex for both forex and CFD instruments? That is another big step for weeks coming own the line.

There you go, quite bit on the go.

Best Performing Forex Pair Should Hugely Increase Your Expected Return And Sharpe Ratio

Proper metrics under proper conditions

The first little bit talks about the combination. I have tested this on multiple time frames but usually find these 2 best performing currency pairs historically will give you highest expected rate of return and expected Sharpe as well.

Note that there is a gap of blackness in video so just wait to see the detailed analysis.

Do realize that this technique can be applied to any asset class universally.

Here was an interesting conversation of Youtube 

Hey Brian, Dofl here. I’m trying to get real-time stock data that would contain pre-market data/historical data. Basically I want to use my own personal scans, etc. Would you be able to recommend any data sources that I can use and parse with java? I know this is off topic of the video, but I really have been l looking for a while. TD Ameritrade seemed promising but unfortunately they aren’t active/don’t allow posting on their API forums, and as a result doesn’t work for me. The existing sources I’ve found on google seem to never have before/after market hours. I know that all the big companies/charting softwares have to get their data somewhere, would you happen to know? Thank you for your time!

good question. It depends on the type of broker where small ones use wholesale brokers. TD Ameritrade would be big enough to have their own network of clients. Most data may also come from  their own prime broker like Citi or Goldman if they provide liquidity.

I see, very interesting. The problem is, I’m trying to get the data so that I can parse it myself. Now, TD-Ameritrade offers an API, but I couldn’t get it to work. I’m not going to burden you and ask you to do a video on it, but I truly think that for us free-stock traders, who want not only to swing-trade, but to day-trade with an edge in the markets, we need that data. I’m really annoyed, because I know I can make the programs I need with my java skills, I just don’t have the data-sources, nor the 1000’s of dollars to throw away just yet lol

It sounds like you need direct market access which means you would need a large account e.g. 500K maybe. This would give you access to the exchanges but you would the to join the line first.

Thanks for reading
