Initial Deutsche Bank FX strategy open source experimental project with source code on Source Forge

UPDATE: Please find these files on GitHub not SourceForget so files links listed below


This is what I typed on the README file so please be gentle when giving feedback. This is an entire learning process:

This history:

I have spent many years looking at various technical trading platforms and trading components as in charting, etc. Now is the time to actually code a real world trading strategy so I intend to use this as a roll model to generate these trading ideas. I am hoping these trading ideas will involve quant analysis.

To start:

Use the PDF from http://stats.lse.ac.uk/kalogeropoulos/LD_1103.pdf#sthash.zOxvHOUY.dpuf as a reference. No comments or further support will be provided once my workflow goal is complete. See below for these workflow details.

Rationale of this project:

There will be more wrong than right in this project as it is strictly for learning to reverse engineer a real world research paper from the banking industry. This is not to include items like charting or trading execution. I am not interested in the performance of this strategy either. As a result, I keep critics, haters, and trolls at bay. This is just to keep this process transparent no different than using an open source software project model. I just hope people will contribute to make this project/process better and even correct. If you fork this, please let me know so I can further learn from your work.

Why Mupad and Matlab for myself?

I find these tools make me more productive and get ideas coded faster as compared to open source language alternatives. This is not to be a technical flame war but this is just a personal preference. I can also extend Matlab scripts faster into other languages (i.e. Java, ..NET, Excel, C, C++, HDL) fastest via Simulink and Matlab Builder tools. Do searches for my research on these tools at https://quantlabs.net/blog/ or https://www.youtube.com/user/quantlabs

I am also using this project as a test to my trading idea research workflow of:


As a result, I am trying to ‘rapidly’ generate an algorithm with Mupad, generate custom M scripts, and implement into a systematic model with Simulink and Stateflow tools. Once complete, further code can be generated to C++, C, or even HDL (for potential FPGA deployment e.g. Verilog)

Where do go from here ?

Once I can deploy a trading model/strategy into C++ or C, I can generate Dynamic Linked Libraries (DLLs) or libraries into my various trading components I have at http://quantlabs.net/academy/ via my courses and memberships.

The files

The initial file package version includes my experimental Mupad Notebooks with generated Matlab M functions. These are definitely incomplete but will be updated as I correct them. There are 5 subfolders based on the Theories explained in the reference PDF from Deutsche Bank. I have also included note files for each folder.

I hope this helps everyone and including myself,

Thanks Bryan

I have not submitted any files to SourceForget but I did submit to GitHub (surprise how much easier it is with their new GUI tool): https://github.com/quantlabs/db-fx-strategy

SourceForge project at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/db-fx-strategy/

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!
