Live chart Matplotlib with GUI libraries Tkinter PyQt

A couple of things.  I would revist after 1.5 years

See below for my opinion on these Python GUI libraries

Potential commercial options with Plotly

Live MatplotLib

Setdex puts out the best videos for this

More general GUI


Decent charting Python tool with ptQt (read Youtube video comments)


PyQt4 vs 5 sounds still pretty complicated since my experience. Also licensing is too restricted.


Most open GUI library with fewest license restrictions

Great example of Tkinter with algo trading in mind

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!

About caustic

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
