Do a code walkthrough on your operating system? Microsoft will have a Linux version

Do a code walkthrough on your operating system? Microsoft will have a Linux version

It looks like Microsoft is trying to create a small Linux for some cloud solution on Azure. Do you really still trust this software maker? They seem to embed all kinds of backdoors into their latest Windows 10. Ugh. There are all kind of security breaches if you looked on Youtube.

Hackers want to know you

If you are trying to trade live money on an account, I can assure you that hackers would love to know about you. As a result, I have always recommended better operating systems like a BSD (free UNIX) or Linux. I made a video about a week on this topic.

You can visit here to get more info on this topic.

http://quantlabs.net/blog/2018/04/intro-secure-os-openbsd-sexiest-manjaro-deepin-linux/

It will demonstrate Open BSD which is one of the most secure operating systems out there. The second most popular Linux distribution called Manjaro with a sexy graphical user interface like DeepIn is pretty to use. The distribution package manager looks very easy to use.

Lastly, I am quite surprised on how well my old legacy R course was quite popular. In case you missed it, here are the details:

I just posted this old legacy R course if you are interested. This include R code walkthrough. I have many posted on this language here

To be quite honest, I am quite surprised on how popular this seems to be among my site visitors.

This is the your chance to learn about behind the scenes of these trading patterns I presented on Monday night. I have made this replay video now private which means it is only available to my Quant Elite Members. This is a very limited and exclusive offering to access it! I even revealed the source of how the Python code was created to generate them, This will never be seen again after this Friday! It is way too valuable that I don’t need the world to know how these work.

 

This posting will be removed this Friday night Eastern Standard Time (same as NYC)!

 

I Want To Learn Trading Patterns Now

Get your access to this via my 3 month Quant Elite Membership if interested!

 

Please find the upcoming new items I will be adding the next few months for this membership:

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.

Is Microsoft and Congress secretly making it illegal to hold crypto currency like Bitcoin soon 

Is Microsoft and Congress secretly making it illegal to hold crypto currency like Bitcoin soon

This came in from a newsletter email subscriber:

 

FYI -(join the dots) Further to your assertion “This article hints at how they have a secretive cloud Service for government agencies” is the mechanism for the US Congress plans to regulate crypto currencies.

 

Congress submits bill making it illegal to hold cash, Bitcoin, or other assets outside of a bank without informing them in writing’ – https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/senate-bill/1241/text#toc-idea0e9489fc8f46379f95bb56c8bbbda5

Microsoft Opens Door to Government Secretive Blockchain Use

Here is yet another reason to not support Microsoft anymore. This article hints at how they have a secretive cloud Service for government agencies. While I am not here to bash Microsoft any further, I still avoid any of their software like the plague.

 

Here is that article I speak of

 

As I slightly hinted in an email and posting, I’ll be going through an exhaustive testing phase to validate my theories of volatility in currency trading. I’m hoping to reveal some positive relationships and patterns that may be helpful to my supportive Quant Analytics members. In fact I may do an unconventional Live meet up webinar for them next week sometime. It will be very last minute to focus on these theories and results. Be aware of this coming up. Once again I’ll only be available for my Quant Analytics members only.

 

Yesterday I revealed some of my daily analysis for my Quant Analytics Lite service here’s the latest headline from today.

NZ dollar hit after party agreement and China develerages to expand GDP
