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

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?

Process of learning about Forex trading

Process of learning about Forex trading

Here was an email set of questions from one my Meetup groups:

Hi Brian

Hope all is well. I am in the process of learning about Forex trading.

I’m looking for a group where I can learn and bounce ideas off of; a group think-tank.

Just want to confirm a couple of things.

1) Are you in any way affiliated with any MLM (multi-Level Marketer?

2) Are you a Broker trying to Sell?

3) Is this a good place to join and start from “ground 0”?

Your feedback would be much appreciated.

Best Regards,

Help me with the market trading indicators without defending HFT potential tech I use or discovery process

Hi there

So a few days, I posted a video on:
There have been some criticism on how I am approaching things, maybe you want to add a comment at the above link or below in the Youtube.
My honest opinion is:
“First let me say the last 3-5 has been a journey on how to apply my tech knowledge to the markets. I am an outsider of this field, as well a quant newbie or quant wannabe. Most of this is about me documenting this which has lead me down many rabbit holes ranging from open source, Linux, R, etc. I got my technology tools picked out now. It seems that people want to watch which I appreciate and will always engage on the comments in a respectful without the usual troll approach. I am currently working on various models but believe me, we know this is the holy grail of profit growing trees. As I mentioned in a past video, I will be rejigging how I will be approaching these demos in 2014. There will obviously be a pay wall to keep out the tire kickers and haters of potential success. Overall, I have been open to those to prove that schmucks like me can hopefully be successful without the need of some expensive Ivy League PHD. “
Instead of defending, I am more interested into those who want to help out with this.  It will help complete this live trading model I am trying to complete. If you can help me out, that will be more beneficial for all as opposed to me needing to defend my position on this ‘so called journey’:
Most popular indicators or alerts to enter and exit the markets for your profitable trade? Moving average, STD DEV, Bollinger Band – See more at: http://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/12/most-popular-indicators-or-alerts-to-enter-and-exit-the-markets-for-your-profitable-trade-moving-average-std-dev-bollinger-band/#sthash.KbqrL3s7.dpuf
This will help out in finishing off my entire live trading model with portfolio weight management during trading.
Please email your thoughts or just post at
Don’t forget, this next workshop tonite will be about appealing to those who like charting from automated trading systems:
Visualization options in your automated trading system
Mon Dec 16 at 7PM EST
We got one more webinar on Thursday on:
Workshop details on databases like MYSQL or SQL Server for automated trading systems
Thur Dec 19 at 7PM EST
This will be the last of it as I will be entering a phase of repackaging of these lessons into a new course ware product worth thousands. 
Again, if you want to save money now is the time!  Sign up here
Hope this is useful to someone out there
Thanks Bryan
