Here is a conversation on reddit.com which pretty well inspired me tostart thinking about blending my knowledge of technology and financial investment. This was pretty inspiring where an indie software engineer launched his own business. He is now clearing

I do use some standard AI procedures, but not for actual trading. I don’t use technicals and I’m not an algorithmic trader in that I’m not in that specific business (algorithmic implies execution).

I’ve used everything from neural nets, SVMs, particle swarm optimization, to artificial immune systems. I have a significant investment in automated news analysis, specifically sentiment interpretation.

Do you code GUI interfaces in Visual Basics to track the market in real time?

Yes. My VB GUI tracks down Cramer’s sheep so I can be in line to take the other side of their trades.

I wish to learn more about this. I want to apply my knowledge of mathematics, statistics and programming. But I do realize I need to train under someone. Since that is not immediately possible what do you recommend as far as subscribing to services like befriendthetrend.com just to get a feel for trading based on their strategies and methods. Will it substitute having a real trainer if I diligently analyse trades and participate in online forums.

Bad, don’t do it. You’d be better off watching the market in real-time for a few weeks. Take good notes and see what behaviors you can identify. Take note of reactions to news, competitors, etc.

Could you expand on the time before you went full-time? What motivated you to even start this? Was it difficult staying tuned with the markets considering you had a 9-5?

A friend of mine, an institutional trader, got me into thinking about it seriously one night after I was bitching to him about how much money my money manager was losing for me.

At first I started out on Asian/European markets so I could trade real-time while I wasn’t at work, and then slowly started automating things which I could monitor while at work. At the point where I was confident that I could provide for myself, I quit and went full time.

What is your opinion on the accusations of market manipulation toward GS (& others) of front running the market? Is there any evidence to support these claims?

I think it should be clear by now that there is manipulation on all fronts. From news, to circle jerk analyst upgrades, to behind closed door bailouts, to front running and flash orders.

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out.
