Quants need to use Finance specific type models such as Black-Scholes with algo require streaming

(Last Updated On: September 1, 2018)

Lots of ‘quants’ rely on the old reliable Black Scholes model for options pricing and forecasting. This question came about compairing it to a form of machine learning. Is it possible that machine learning will exceed or already has? It seems time only will tell in a few months as I will start researching in the cold hibernating months. Gee we got through this some how.

Here is a Quora question posted on my site:

I also made another 38 mnute. Here is what I posted yesterday:

Demo of live crypto currency positions profit and loss algo trading

 

I just did a 38 minute on digging into how certain positions can be profitable or losing money, I go so deep here as I need to track a way to close out the positions for profit and loss measurement. The logs I generated are very good to see the life cycle of the position. You see see if position goes profitable and see how fast it can go negative. This is the advantage of using these type of logs. In fact, I may do a day webinar for my Elite members for this.

This Tuesday, I have this arrangement:

Webinar event: Build a baby automated trading system with algos require streaming

 

This is a very typical conversation I have with online strangers who want to control their own future. This will help those automated trading with altos require streaming.

A Twitter followed opened up with this conversation which created the idea to do this webinar topic.

I am thinking it may be better to pay someone to do the programming? I just don’t have the time. Do all algos require streaming from IQFEED or a third party service. I am looking at kairos have you heard of the program and any thoughts/ recommendations?

Ok I am very motivated . Sounds like python is the way to go. I have tried IBridgePy but didn’t get Far….My system is very simple .

Understanding your own coding is most predictable. I have many folks who lost thousands dues to bad programmers. This is what I have experienced among folks like yourself.

Thanks. How long would you say it will take someone like myself to get a system up  and running and what services do you offer to get me to where I need to be?

It depends on your motivational level. It could take a couple of months with Python. If you try with a lower level like C++ or Java, it would be probably years but most people give up on it.

Here are some topics for the event

Understanding your own coding is most predictable. I have many folks who lost thousands dues to bad programmers. This is what I have experienced among folks like yourself.

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
