ASIC was concerned Enfinium failed to have adequate risk management systems, in particular, controls on its Meta Trader 4 (MT4) trading platform and a plug in device known as the ‘Virtual Dealer.’

This powerful piece of forex broker manipulation software allows them to do virtually anything to your trades before, during and after they have been set in motion.

Some of the nasty things this plug-in is capable of doing are:

    Widening spreads in order to trigger stops

    Ignoring, modifying or deleting outstanding (pending) orders

    Configuration for the automated widening of spreads, limits and stock levels prior to news announcements

    On-the-fly reduction of leverage to force liquidation of large positions the broker’s customer may have open

Chat with a trader: Python Quants

If you want to start or continue working with Python as a group. I would recommend start looking into this group who set the standard somewhat for Python algo traders. There are others who seem to set the stand but they are not doing well in terms of trading performance. This same standard group keep cutting back on their features. If you want to something more standardized, check this group out.

Trader Made 295% on Cryptocurrency Derivatives like Bitcoin

Trader Made 295% on Cryptocurrency Derivatives like Bitcoin

As for the Bitcoin game may be up with this lovely line:

ot a week goes by without startups launching new ones to fund everything from dentistry to Las Vegas strip clubs. Even Paris Hilton is tweeting to her 16 million followers about her cryptocurrency investments. If that isn’t a jump-the-shark-moment, what is?

Very interesting article on speculative bitcoin CFDs from eToro which is another questionable broker. Here is a description of the elusive CFD i have mentioned in the past:

Unlike futures contracts, CFDs don’t trade on exchanges and are largely illiquid. Investors can suffer big losses because they have to put up only a percentage of the value of their trades on margin. While the U.S. largely prohibits retail investors from trading CFDs, regulators in Europe are only now beginning to address the peril they pose.

In June, the European Securities and Markets Authority, the European Union watchdog for capital markets, said it was concerned about the suitability of CFDs and was weighing measures to restrict their use. Combining CFDs with cryptocurrencies is reckless, said Rainer Lenz, chairman of Finance Watch, a Brussels-based public-interest organization, who serves on an advisory group at ESMA.

“We have to put a stop to this,” said Lenz. “This is selling a synthetic instrument on top of another synthetic instrument. This is the highest form of speculation. You just can’t do that to retail investors.”

Donate $100,000s per year working as a quant trader

I came across an article I never thought of. Imagine if you could donate hundresds of thousands to millions per year in charity? This is all because high paying quants make between 300K to $10M. There were a bunch of questions to one of these quant researchers who did a Q&A podcast. You should check this out.

 

Some highlighted quotes:

Quant trading pays very well, plateauing at between $300,000 and $10m a year after five to ten years, depending on performance.
