Docker with NOSQL MongoDB useful for trading

I find technology can be to fast-moving sometimes. When the world was introduced to Docker, I could not find any use cases for it in the world of trading. The last few days, I was reading about how Goldman Sachs started using it in their environment so I reviewed a number of tutorial videos which were posted here.


Some of these videos included ‘spinning’ up virtual environments which could include MongoDB instances. I was wondering if you could do the same with Redis. If you have any experience with this technology, please reach out to me as I’d like to learn more and how you use these tools in your trading environment.

Viber? Couchbase NOSQL still limited

Another NOSQL option that I know of is CouchBase. After watching this video presentation about Viber, I wondered if it could be any better than Redis.


Here are some opinions I have on CouchBase.


Video playback LIVE Q&A on Best Workflow to your HFT Potential

Lastly, I just posted my one hour live Q&A presentation video playback on what I call “the best workflow to HFT”. I hope I covered all the topics including my live demos using this methodology to generate quick trading ideas into highly efficient source code like C/C++.

I plan to implement approximately 60 algorithms from my trading from UC Davis futures/options course I have worked on over the last few weeks. You can get immediate access to this within my Quant Elite membership.
