Installation failure with Quantopian Pyfolio 

(Last Updated On: August 8, 2017)


Massive failure with Quantopian Pyfolio

Over the weekend I tried to install both Zipline and Pyfolio (open source packages from Quantopian) into my Python environments. I have both Python 2.7 and 3.6. After the attempt of implementation, both packages completely failed my out of box tests which is a rare event for me. I am not sure if it was coding or some glitch in the installation process. The lesson to be learned here is that there is in fact better alternatives for the same functionality you would get with a cloud service like Quatopian. The best part is you own and control every single step when it comes to generating your trading to systematically submitting your order to a broker. In a nutshell, I would never let an external company or service ever own those processes including black box technology.

Here is a video of my attempt to use this PyFolio Python package.

We tried another one but why do these keep failing when trying to implement
If you see something that looks wrong, let me know as I would love to learn my missteps.

As you know, I will be putting this video up on my Shopify account for both my Quant Analytic Members or anyone who joins over the next few days. This video will stay up for a very limited time which makes this download opportunity very very limited as I have mentioned in the past.
