No MYSQL database needed, use Matlab Datafeed connector with FREE Yahoo or IQFeed for market data for SImulink trading model
Now it appears I actually don’t need a database connection like MYSQL. I can just use the Matlab Datafeed Toolbox using IQFeed or Yahoo as a source. You can also use Bloomberg or Reuters as another set of options as well. It just depends what you can afford. Of course, this will get ‘streamed’ in to a Matlab workspace matrix much easier with one less layer like a database. Crap, why did I not just think of this earlier? Also, we can worry about integrating the code generated c++ Simulink model with the IQFeed APi. Let’s just some simple trading models built with Simulnk first shan’t we?
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
