I keep getting these articles and questions about starting a high-frequency trading firm. As you can imagine, it is not that easy.
The main takeaways from this article are:
- the different strategies available
- prime broker and back office options
- finding your clearinghouse
- it is not about your algorithm alone
If you read this whole article, you think your algo is the easiest part. Ugh… What we do to make money. You should even read the article comments.
I have highlighted the frameworks that I want to use for a high-speed trading system that I want to build but it seems much more daunting than it used to be. Also, I really don’t think you can get away with starting at $20,000 in your trading account.
As I’ve already hinted, looks like I’m setting a hard date sometime in July as my first day to talk like a trader. Ha ha. All the content is already ready to go for learning futures and options trading (Phase 2) which is part of my “Algo training course in Python to set up your automated trading business.”.
I’m actually thinking of bringing in some very high caliber traders to advance programmers to make these LIVE lessons more dynamic. It gets kind of stale listening to me talk about technology so I want to get other people’s points of views as well. More to come as I can try work out commitments from others which are part of my network. These will obviously happen every Tuesday night at 8 PM Eastern Standard time since I started in February.
Thanks for reading
