Speaking of Python and Pandas, did you did know that I had a course on?

Python 3 Infrastructure Blocks with Crypto

As Bitcoin ruled the financial news cycle in recent times, many have had a peak interest in crypto currency along with systematic trading. There are many advanced trading research techniques including machine learning, AI, or quant. This course was created for the ‘newbie’ who has a basic understanding in popular programming languages but easy to learn such as Python. A focus of technical analysis was chosen since it is popular among retail traders. It is also seems to offer more predictable results as opposed to harder to learn concepts such as quant or machine learning. In essence, a simpler with more effective techniques were purposely chosen to get someone with basic programming knowledge (eg. Python) to get ramped up faster!

Taking questions Now for Building a Baby Automated Trading system Event Tonight

Taking questions Now for Building a Baby Automated Trading system Event Tonight

I am taking questions for this event tonight at 7PM EDT. I got a bunch already. I cannot received them within a few hours of this time, I may not be able to answer your question!

Where to ask?

Email them or comment by asking them here on my Facebook Quantlabsnet page

https://www.facebook.com/quantlabsnet/

 

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.

  1. Here is what I will cover to build your ‘baby algo trading system’:
  2. 1. It depends on your asset class and broker of choice.
  3. 2. Sample way to download data with 3rd party solutions ranging from Excel to Java ion source source scanners.
  4. 3. How to use a Python package to do quick analysis using a popular technical analysis library
  5. 4. Analysis the results to assess trading order decisions
  6. 5. Which brokers with packages to execute orders

This will take place:

Note that this takes place TONIGHT!

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.

First glimpse of fully automated trading system in crypto currency

First glimpse of fully automated trading system in crypto currency

Here it is. Everything seems to be working end to end on this system. I can capture some incredible moves of 5% in less than 15 minutes.

Some further discussion found on my private Telegram group:

… let me build the thing so i can focus on metrics. sharpe ratios are useless as they are only used in industry. what matters is your winning ration of all open positions…

what matters is what goes into your pocket. my hope is to get 66% winning ratio so i can leverage and scale position sizing from there…

i can easily open this up to well over $10M if i wanted but i am not willing to take on that kind of down side potential

HT:
Apparently running afund is a full time job You raise money and don’t get to trade anymore.

That’s why partners are needed who have a great network….

that is correct with lawyers breathing down your back

f**k it

Overview of backtrader with Python 3 for a complete algo trading system

There are numerous part of this video but I try to explain how to install backtrader which I got running on Python.This can also be used in conjunction to build a out a complete algo trading system.  This project clearly is growing quickly to replace Quantopian and maybe Quantstart. It is 100% in Python with some great example Quick Start guides to get you up and running. I am sure the community is up to par by now.

Oanda? Really so here is why ?

Also, I explain how I may go back to Oanda( ugh and yuck) as a quick and easy gateway for forex or CFD trading. This  project will ease the intro to a forex algo trading system with 100% Python without the complex extra process of including Java with the JForex platform from Dukascopy. Also, it seems American residents really only have Oanda as the only remaining choice to use Python. It sucks I know but this includes the huge market interest for using the 100% Python option for an algo trading system. Just remember Dukascopy does not allow USA customers so I can only use Oanda for now. My opinions of Oanda has not changed. I just wish there was a better option to implement.

Also, the Python backtrader project support Oanda and my eventual migration to Interactive Brokers for eventual options/futures. Always remember this asset class is used by institutions and is recession proof as well.

Spoiler alert

To save you time, I also tried to install a GUI project built for backtrader called Omega UI.

https://github.com/OmegaTrading/OmegaUI

Most of the video focuses on this attempt but this project clearly needs a tutorial or document to get it running. This portion was a chunk of time wasted so don’t bother.

Note: I plan to only use backtrader for the broker connection only as explained above. I don’t plan to change the strategies I have been working over the last number of months

I will be adding the productive learning to my course as explained below

How to use moving averages for potential market reversal in algo trading

 

I just recorded another video on moving averages. This includes the periods of 20 simple moving average, 50 simple moving average, and the longer/slower 200 exponential moving average. This is important to display my video showcases that moving averages that have a healthy divergence mean it has trends which you can trade. With my recent crypto currency in the video, you can clearly see the pair averages tighten up which makes it very difficult to trade automatically.  With these averages and my recent trend (watch  the video here), I am hoping to find this a workable trading condition.

Chart details

In the chart example of the video, you will find new indicators which includes momentum and Relative Strength Indicator (RSI).  I find momentum combined with the trends will tell an interesting story when they work. Don’t forget I can also use what level are generated by Fibonacci Retracement.  I also have a way generate the numbers for momentum using a newly discovered Python package. This can be seen here

https://github.com/bukosabino/ta

I hope this helps as I start working on the Adam and Eve pattern to confirm market reversals. This also involves when a candlestick moves more 50% the next day after an opposing huge candlestick. The name of this line is Marubozu

14 Buy Signals For CryptoCurrency Bear Market On Jun 12

Yesterday there were no longs generated after the meltdown of Bitcoin from Friday. it seem that crypto currency was a dead asset class.  It got me worried since I had no content for webinar I did earlier. tonight. As a result, I had to rework how I approached using this new script I developed a few weeks ago.

Here are the script changes

1.  I reduced the look back period from 1000 to 200 days which makes it more than 6 months.

2. I added some new columns after running a linear regression. 4 new columns were added to ranking spreadsheet which include slope, r-value, p-value, and standard error.

3. A new sorting criteria which is in the order of slope, volume and volatility. Note that I will not report any crypto currency less than a volume of 45 million. This is the latest captured bar of volume with closing price added as well.

There is stlll lots of filtering to do which will makes this more precise as I choose which crypto currency pairs into enter the market via Binance exchange.

See my video here

More to come

I am starting to move out of the analysis to tie up the more important aspects of this ‘entire crypto trading system.’ I am focusing back on my own older Python 2 scripts that do:

1. Kelly Criterion to keep the account protected by throttling the daily amount available based on trading performance.

2. Portfolio Optimizer which will allocate capital to deploy each trading day based on historical market data of the particular crypto asset of interest.

3. Watchlist uses various simple metrics to precisely measure entry into the market. This includes Beta performance on a benchmark like Bitcoin/USA Dollar.

4. Positions Manager is used to measure the exit once a position is entered. I plan to use Average True Range to help here as using like a virtual trailing stop.

More videos will focus on the Python scripts above. They will also need to be translated from Python 2 to version 3.

All of these will lead to new files and charts for my Quant Analytics service.

 

Thanks Bryan
