Regarding Matlab… in 2017

(Last Updated On: April 12, 2017)

A very valid question from a member:

 

Hi Bryan.

there just aren’t enough hours in the day with my job to watch every video… wow!

My head is going to explode…. trouble focusing on Python training…  look over there… cows!

anyway…

question about Matlab…

I want to get it, but what add-ons do you think I need based on possble IB API strategies?

Keep in mind, that each add-on is $50 or so..

With all the add-ons you could think of, would it be more than $500,say?

Thanks for the kind words but it is a lot so I have spent over the last months stripping out stuff you may not need. The Python should be the easiest and quickest path to your goals. You COULD get Matlab but I am not needing it at this point since Python covers a lot of it. As you know, Python is free. As for the costs of Matlab, it sounds right but your best bet is to go to their site/sales staff to confirm. Also, it is still highly limited on how you can extend your Matlab scripts to do anything with other systems. This is when it gets into the thousands of Matlab costs.

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!

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 youtube.com/quantlabs
