Now a fuc*in news

 

Why would you use Python in Excel, when you can use just Python  😀 The mind boggles sometimes.

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

 

Thanks for reading

Experienced algo trader view on Microsoft Windows detriment

Experienced algo trader view on Microsot Windows detriment

Another member’s view of using Microsoft and Windows 10 product:

Brian,

 

I am surprised that it has taken you so long. At the end of 2015, after assessing risks of using Microsoft’s products, (ransomware threats, attack surface, upadate issues, vulnerabilities, support passed out for Microsoft’s own not so old products etc …) I decided to wind down my IT service company. I must admit that Windows 10 was the final straw, some of the anniversary update issues became a nightmare for my customers.  For me and supporting Microsoft’s server and other products were becoming a “can of worms” as their business model refocuses to software as a service (Re Windows 10 enterprise – subscription 365).  Even their SQL server department are rumoured to prefer to deploy SQL server on linux and had resisted deployment on Windows server 2016. The cloud makes it easy for customers to choose any competitor to Azure and Microsoft are scrambling to lock in their customer base.

(see http://www.forbes.com/sites/quora/2016/12/07/why-is-microsoft-showing-so-much-interest-in-linux/#1e8060f74e5f )

 

To run a trading system on windows 10, you are subject to updates that are not controlled, other win 10 close to you can leach the updates from your box, and there is constant telemetry being sent to Microsoft etc– all of which chew up your band width – not the ideal when you want to trade, this contributes to slippage – money taken out of your pocket. There are other issues as well see: https://senk9.wordpress.com/checklists/windows-10-privacy-checklist/

 

I now spend most of my time developing systems for trading (using machine, deep leaning) on Ubuntu. (Those that still like the windows feel may opt for Linux mint)

 

Over the last few months I have ported some of the software to linux (Ubuntu) and manage these with wine, and Play on Linux to manage the versions of wine required for various MS based software (via virtual disk drives) and on the odd occasions that I may require a Microsoft operating system , I spin up a VM using virtual box on linux.

 

For VMs, to be deployed to servers, you have Docker (or LXC – not as flexible) so it is easy to deploy your trading VM to any collocation service (closer to an exchange to handle latency issues and resilience).

 

The nice thing about Linux is that the development platforms (python, CUDA etc..) just work!

 

So consider Windows 10 – well and truly dumped or knobbled in virtualbox on linux!

 

BTW further to my previous email, you may be interested in the podcast Cryptocurrencies and Machine Learning with Bert Mouler http://bettersystemtrader.com/064-cryptocurrenciess-machine-learning-with-bert-mouler/

 

Wish you all the best with your new service.

There you go…also I cannot recommend more than this Burt gom the Chat with Traders episode for Machine Learning. It was the best one for machine learning benefits
