Meetup Jan 15: Trading results with systematic process

 

Here are my notes:

I am willing to talk about the psyche of trading when human greed kicks in versus following computer code logic. This is a tough battle to overcome but I think this is an important discussion to understand the psyche of this.

After talking to dozen upon dozens of retail traders who do and rely on technical analysis and indicators have their heads literally poisoned with negative propaganda that negates their trading results. I have fallen for that in so many ways in the last few weeks. Let’s address that if you ever want to transform yourself into having an automated or algorithmic or systematic trading setup.

–→ Do you believe in this theory?

More traps are laid out one must overcome with this notion of over-engineering their strategies with all these complicated indicators hoping that the moon will provide 5 Elliot waves to give them mercy in lucrative riches. Or how about those Fibonacci retracement levels that for some reason never work out.

do you really beleve in Fib or 5 Elliots work like magic on these extact wave X number of patterns? Is the market not so random it is hard to confirm these theories ?

1, Minimize your indicators

2. keep it simple

3. program a way to watch your order log when you put on a positions (entry), analyze your the evolution or life cycle of the position. Looks for peaks and if you can, watch the peak profit level of the actual position. Your broker API may have a simple method like P&L in USD. If not, you percent of move since entry. Note that position will go negative due to spread but if you have positive momentum, it should break out

4. confirm your max and min for break out when shorting or longing

5. always cut your loss once your position goes against you e.g. direction/momentum may come back but cut at approx 10% – always to minimize loss !

6. watch as many assets your hardware → the more the higher the # of opportunity

5. watch at a lower time frame like 1 minute since there are more opportunity but know how to minimize false positives and fake noize (this is the problem)

6. you can allow the profit for monster profit, I have seen if you hold position for many hours 7 or 8+ you will find huge profit but don’t get greedy, your pogramming logic should allow this instead of hard stop loss

7. note that I have scrapped 3 versions and rewevamping for a 4th time to keep the code tight, expect to keep doing that as part of your strategy development

IB

A CCOUPLE OF MONTHS IF Value of DELTA (safe zone) HIT CERTAIN VALUE e.g. iron condor
Fibonacci
Think or Swim
TRON
stop loss at 2 SD

#1 goal in forex trading is not to lose money but profit is 2nd

Meetup Jan 15: Trading results with systematic process

I have a question for you: What are your trading results looking like for 2018? First off, an apology over the horrible jargon typing from the world’s worst typist. This was concocted in a severe hurry but hopefully you will enjoy this twisted jargon that follows:

What are your trading results looking like for 2018? I have scheduled another Meetup online for this Monday (as in 2 days). I wanted to talk about lessons learned about my current strategy for doing automated forex trading. There was lots to learn before I think I am getting not just winning trades but bug results. I am willing to talk about the psyche of trading when human greed kicks in versus following computer code logic. This is a tough battle to overcome but I think this is an important discussion to understand the psyche of this.

After talking to dozen upon dozens of retail traders who do and rely on technical analysis and indicators have their heads literally poisoned with negative propaganda that negates their trading results. I have fallen for that in so many ways in the last few weeks. Let’s address that if you ever want to transform yourself into having an automated or algorithmic or systematic trading setup.

More traps are laid out one must overcome with this notion of over-engineering their strategies with all these complicated indicators hoping that the moon will provide 5 Elliot waves to give them mercy in lucrative riches. Or how about those Fibonacci retracement levels that for some reason never work out. Seriously, if you believe in that, you will be putting these thoughts into the top 3 remorses of your life while you sit on your death bed.

One thing I found, simplicity and math is the key to all your ills. Also, you need to ensure you have a decent reliable broker who is not going to kick you of your profitable runs just before it hits that stop loss. I hear these stories weekly because of the corrupt brokers they choose.

As you can tell, there is lots to discuss this Monday at 7PM EDT so let’s set it up shall we?

Turning software into computer chips – Hastlayer meetup

Login info below
Presenter is Zoltán Lehóczky

Co-founder and managing director of Lombiq, originator of the Hastlayer project. His main expertise is in .NET software development and software architecture design. Core contributor of the ASP.NET Orchard CMS. Guest lecturer at Óbuda University, John von Neumann Faculty of Informatics.

Turning software into computer chips – Hastlayer

Software is flexible, specialized hardware is extremely fast. So why not write software, then turn it into a computer chip? This is what Hastlayer does by transforming .NET software into electronic circuits. The result is faster and uses less power while you simply keep on writing software. You may not be able to tell just by looking at it but behind some function calls now actually embedded hardware is working! (You wonder how? Check out what FPGAs are!) In this demo-packed session we’ll get an overview of what Hastlayer is, why it is useful for developers like you and how to write Hastlayer-compatible software.

Hi there,

Sep 2017 Meetup Social din din

Sep Meetup Social din din

If you are in the Toronto area tomorrow, let me know by the end of today to be part of our monthly social din din. I do to these to get together with locals who are interested in algo trading, forex, and automation. It happens on Monday Sept at 7PM at Jack Astors in North York. Details are listed here by joining either Meetup.com group:

 

https://www.meetup.com/quant-finance/events/243309690/

 

https://www.meetup.com/TOForexTraders/events/243309786/

 

I need to know by the end of end of day for Sunday to make a reservation for final numbers.

 

Here was the latest chit chat on my Telegram group. You should consider joining it by going here.

 

I wondered what exit strategies people use in their trading. I posted this on various Facebook entities I administer. I posted this:

Who uses either stop loss and/or take profit only on their exits only? What other techniques have you used in an automated trading setting?

I got these comments:

I use trailing stops on nearly all trades… I break up my sells and trail stops a little different for each block… I don’t automate trading – I wish I could learn it, but its too much for me to learn by myself…

always have a limit order for exit, it’s the only way you can predict your losses therefore have a strategy, if you don’t cap your losses how can you have a profitable strategy?

 

I am interested to know what you use. I had many dialogues over this but things may have changed since then.

 

I also posted this video lately regarding the API. If you missed the memo, I have found Visual JForex can generate really ugly Java code as part of your strategy. In fact, I would consider it even useless or beginners if they want to advance their own programming skills.

 

Right now, I am focused on the stop losses right now for exit strategies. As a result, I made a video on this as usual. Also, note that I do plan to use regression for entry as hinted in another previously sent video as well. In short, just take a look at my most recent videos found in my Dukascopy playlist on my Youtube.com/quantlabs channel.

I got deep on these different scenarios which means I will use various techniques for my exit strategy needs http://quantlabs.net/blog/2017/09/complte-overview-of-dukascopy-api-order-and-positions-with-stop-loss-and-take-profit/
Remember I got my affordable video course series on these topics if you want to learn what I am applying here with Dukascopy.
