Where did the least-square come from?

Math is key sometimes to math. Guess what? I find the simpler, the better. If you know your difference between an simple moving average or a weighted average, you should be ok. You don’t need the complicated math as far as I can see. The complicated quant can be important for processes like machine learning, it can take you much longer to find the result.

Use market data different from your broker or mt4 or tradingview

I got this question via Facebook Messenger:

Hi Bryan, I have read https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A07CBHXq75A I was wondering, are there any codes on github where one could execute an indicator from MT4 or Tradingview via Java, or instead of executing orders, receiving buy sell signals via sms from an MT4 or tradingview indicator, via java, on an sms? How would you construct such indicator?

My answer is in the video but in a nutshell: always use the market data of where you trade or submit orders.

Everything described is in this future.

Also, in this video I addressed the changing situation of brokers due to their Python API support. One example is how Dukascopy seems to become irrelevant since more people want machine learning in their trading. It seems they seek Python for this. You can find all these answers towards the end of the video.


I teach this in my Python course


Thanks Bryan

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 youtube.com/quantlabs
