One of the key issues highlighted by Brian is TradingView’s use of PineScript, a scripting language that can pose a barrier to people unfamiliar with coding. However, he points out that accessing and learning from the over 100,000 scripts available via this platform can be an invaluable resource for those willing to delve into it. He discloses that these scripts may be reverse-engineered and applied to a live trading system using higher-level languages like C++, Java or Python, feeding into his broader mission of providing an automated trading solution not currently offered by TradingView.

Brian then delves into the world of automated trading, elaborating on why TradingView does not directly support this method of trading due to challenges associated with regional regulations. By contrast, he offers a solution that uses TradingView data alongside a Python listener to generate signals, allowing for automated trading via brokers or crypto exchanges not supported by TradingView.

However, Brian is keen to highlight that this system does not fit the mold of true HFT, which would necessitate access to an exchange and hardware and software infrastructure that can cost thousands of dollars and only becomes economically viable for serious traders with sizeable trading accounts due to the high margin requirements. Subsequently, he indicates that the focus of his YouTube channel, QuantLabs, will center on topics such as trading strategies, programming techniques, and integration with Python, TradingView, C++ or Java.

Brian also outlines his current campaign to diversify his reach across various platforms, such as Substack and his new Python Django-based website, driven by his focus on achieving maximum returns through social media platforms and generating more email opt-ins. Lastly, he addresses potential concerns associated with YouTube and their censorship rules by signaling his intention to explore alternative platforms while continuing to use YouTube for specific aspects of his outreach.
