From a couple of Premium Members comment and queries from the awesome webinar presented by Stuart of the MATHWORKS on the latest capabilities of MATLAB 2013.

Hi Bryan,


What a great webinar yesterday !

An example for the vaste majority of presentations.

I have to look at the replay for the last part because then Stuart was in 6th gear.


A couple of remarks:


1. This matlab software package is BIG.

I don’t think that any person can master it completely and also dive deep in applications.

Different parts we have to address:

– Statistical analysis of past data for definition and testing of strategies and algorithmes.

– Modelling of algo’s and strategies in Simulink

– Designing and realisation of automatic trading systems with datafeeds, colocation servers, etc.


2. This package is also for brokers.

With this package (with Matlab server) the broker can make a complete system with many traders connected.


3. So we have to organize things.

Hopefully there are a number of people who are willing to form a team and work together.


Please comment and put it on the website if you wish.




NOT for everybody:



This is getting bigger and bigger. More than you can do by yourself.

I think we are nearing the moment when a team has to be formed with members with complementing expertise who commit themselves to realize the goals (to be agreed). This goes beyond the membership of This is the next step, this is business.


You need a team and you need to realize a first demo automated trading system.

And then this can be presented to potential investors resulting in agreements, business plan, setting up and rolling out the systems and services.


Perhaps I go too fast, but I like the overall picture and see where we are going to.


In my opinion: If you do not take the next step, you can continue with the membership and the website and present everybody promising developments and products. If this is what you want, no problem, do continue. Everybody makes his own choices.


I think I have made my point. I am willing to participate in the next level.


OK, tell me what you think of this. Perhaps another Skype ?



I haven’t looked at this yet, but it may have relevance to your (“our”) project.

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. 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. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
