How to use crontab in Linux and Mac os with Python

 

I am also using this as a glorified scheduler for my current Python scripting. I run 2 crypto currency strategies among others. This technique can run on Linux and Mac OS

Note that crontab is not on Windows which needs to be Linux or Mac OS compliant operating systems

I have included the zip of Python source files displayed in my video

https://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/managing-cron-jobs-using-python–cms-28231

crontab <– download this Zip of Python source code

Notes:

Reduce console in your Python script eg. with print

Dump all output into text files as hinted in this tutorial but ensure you have monitoring to watch your drive space. Dumping into text files will eat up a lot of drive space. This is another form of logging I have pushed over the last few months. You may also want to look into sexy GUI apps to help in text searching in text or log files. This is the same of the game.

I have also created a course on how to debug with logging while developing an automated trading strategy.

I am pushing more Lnux stuff, less Apple Mac OS and Microsoft Windows ’cause we want to make you smarter, more efficient, and save money and time!

Bob Pardo makes a fascinating research observation and offers an opportunity

 

Hello Fellow Traders,

We are currently developing trading models for various trading programs with our new product Ranger. By the way, we use the same version of Ranger that we license to our clients.

Our development process starts with the most simple strategy variant and then proceeds through various layers of complexity.

At its most basic, Ranger can be configured as a basic range breakout strategy. Consider the following results. We tested this range breakout variant through our proprietary walk-forward analysis (WFA) matrix on NASDAQ futures from 1-1-2007 through 12-31-2017. The performance for the Walk-Forward Analyses produced the following results – the total for all WFAs was a loss of $385,410 with an average WFA loss of $35,037. Not terribly inspiring to say the least.

However, having confidence in our trading technology and research methods we “slogged on.”

Next step. Consider, then, the same strategy and variable range with the application of one of
our proprietary filters. That same WFA matrix produced a profit of $629,850 and an average gain of $57,259.

What a difference a filter can make! That particular filter is our proprietary Trend Indicator. This indicator can tell us, among other things, when a market is quiet. The results above are the difference between an unfiltered range breakout and a range breakout from a quiet state.

Ranger is an EasyLanguage program which runs in TradeStation. Locked it is $2,500 and unlocked $5,000. Trend Indicator is one of three proprietary indicators which are included with the unprotected version.

If you would like to put Ranger to work for your own trading email me at rangerql@pardocapital.com for further information. The included Tutorial will have you up and producing trading strategies immediately. Ranger also includes six finished and tradable stock index strategies which can get you started. They are actually quite good and more than just “starters!”

Wishing you a prosperous and fulfilling 2019!


Warm Regards,

Bob Pardo

Why I closed Telegram trading groups? New chat service

Why I closed Telegram trading groups? New chat service

I closed and deleted the Telegram groups I ran. W\hy? I found any group to be too chatty of low quality/unproductive noise, spam, and other junk. It was not focusing on algo trading. It went nowhere as some other Telegram crypto currency groups were lousy. Administering bad actors and content was becoming a big time suck. I hve a new chat service! Also, I do not like giving out my phone number to register with a 3rd party messenger service like Telegram, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, etc. Privacy is becoming important to me.

Also, I find the new chat I have built on is a dedicated virtual private server which is not tracked, anonymous, and secure (according to the software developer). You no longer need to register using this two factor authentication which most other messenger services require. As a result, you can login via a virtual private network service as well if you choose.

Mobile editions were important

Most mobile apps require you to enter into your device phone to use it. It sucks you need to do this but the current chat has Google Android mobile app support. When you register as a customer, you will get all the links to get you started. As for mobile support for Apple IOS (e.g. iPhone or iPad), the developer said iTunes rejected his app due to some template of the chat software. No big deal but if you want to be dedicated to this, you could always get a cheap Android tablet device for about $70 US.

How do you get on?

Simple… you become a customer of mine. Buy something via the online store to get on it for your LIFE. You can go here to choose which product or service you would be interested in:

Quality of community

This a big factor in which keeps the group productive. I am hoping it will contain contributors to bring up the quality I seek. Also, when you have the lurkers/tire kickers/quiet kind of folks, the chat group will not be same as opposed to contributors or that ‘work it’. It helps motivate folks and we all learn as a community. Hope you understand the vision of this for the future. Do understand this new chat service has the ability to split up into separate rooms, one on one private chats, etc.

Also, any customers can find the latest info via this chat service as well. I ain’t communicating as publicly as much as I used to. 2019 is a year where I hope to go premium as this highly successful crypto trading algo is working great.

Thanks for your understanding,

P.S. Remember to get something via the online store to join this chart service for LIFE!

Ubuntu Linux desktop tour with 2 running crypto currency strategies movie

Ubuntu Linux desktop tour with 2 running crypto currency strategies movie

Here are notes types up

Hi there This is a SILENT video of this new Ubuntu desktop environment I have set up 10 days for 2 working strategies with respect to crypto currency

First is the winning strategy

Everything is developed in Python

First strategy resides in 2 terminal sessions within Terminator

The third terminal session to get current profit and loss of the current running session

Now the second strategy, this one resides in another terminal application called LilyTerm

See that I can have tabbed sessions in one windows of the terminal app. Same with Terminator but I use a different app to distinguish the different running sessions

Get it?

Both strategies also run with redis NOSQL

Both strategies connect into the same Redis-Server but different tables distinguish the strategies

Thee older (not newer successful strategy) tables all end in Old

This is the best way I came up with 2 have strategies work within the same system. There will be lots of other modifications but this is the basic set up I got right now.

As for the Redis client, I am still using Redis Desktop manager but it is true open source on Linux (this is running Ubuntu 18.04 which is the current version)

I also have the stand email client like Thunderbird with Firefox the browser. Nothing fancy but it works

Also, I use Filezilla a lot for FTP

Pretty simple description of how this whole thing works together. I could get a mic and audio setup but this is just the basic. As a result, no audio is on the sytsem so I just type like this which means it is silent. Sorry about the typos here but like you care.

That is all byue

Latest with Crypto Currency Bitcoin results with algo trading bot

I had one of the best days in a while with this new winning strategy. It was up 21% in twenty four hours. As for today 1 PM Eastern Standard Time, it is up another 6.4 overnight. I consider this a decent winner where is usually about 89% winning ratio. Many would question but I don’t blame them. On the other hand, I don’t care about those skeptics which become the classic online troll we know about. I just ignore them. Anyhow, I made two online Facebook Live videos over 12 hours recording the process. On top of that, I witnessed 2 percent jump in the first video.

Check it out here

Watch the last video for upcoming announcement if you take serious your trading and auomtated trading seriously

ADA LTC NEO DNT are the big movers for today in crypto currency

Here are the big movers if you include volume and reduced volatility. I would remove the crypto currency pairs where they are tracked on a whipsaw list This is kept for about 3-6 hours to prevent positions that could go negative. This is important to understand to filter out for a higher probability of profitable trade.

2 strategies working to together

This is helpful but the newer strategy is combined with consistent winning ratio of at leas 75% but usually hovers around high 80’s to low 90s. That is very ideal with 30-60 positions opened per 24 hours. It depends on the activity of the crypto currency asset class at that time.

Al positions will be combined into one eventual equity curve, I showed how to build that in an earlier post.
