useful web scraping sources for amazing cryptocurrency volume spikes

Latest chat on private server was about secret useful web scraping sources for amazing cryptocurrency volume spikes
Over the last few days, there was a series of detailed ‘research’ between myself and a dedicated user which took place on the private chat server. This is where folks can converse in privacy and anonymously without worrying about tracking by third parties like social media or search engines. It is important for my customers can do this. When you get something through the store, you will get LIFE time access to this chat server. This is the replacement to my older disbanded Telegram group I operated last year.
Many topics were covered including other crypto exchanges other than Binance, useful web scraping data sources, trading volume signals, fast moving screeners that can be tracked on an hourly or even minute basis. and other useful topics. Sorry to say but this stuff will disappear off  this chat server since it only retains 100 messages. As a result, I encourage all users to check in very frequently to get the latest tips. You can of course add to the conversation if you want once you become a customer via our store product.

Next webinar will be kept private

It has been scheduled for Monday April 15 at 11 AM Eastern Daylight Time which is same as New York City.  This will be delivered on Zoom.us but not streamed on social media like Facebook nor Youtube. I will post this as an event on my Facebook Quantlabsnet page as usual. Do realize this will be archived in my ELITE section for anyone who wants this access. Do realize that this video be kept online for a few days as usual!

Is this the best book for machine learning for TensorFlow and Python Scikit-Learn

A book sent over by student which covers all the basic machine learning frameworks including TensorFlow and Scikit-Learn in Python. This might be something I will use as a one stop shop for learning this stuff.

This should be useful to build out more intelligent algo / systematic trading systems for any asset class out there.

FAQs for smart python algo trading with crypto and forex

I got a question on Python algo trading  from someone in Belgium. Here is the commentary:

 

I am very much into forextrading and also very much into programming (I work in IT), but I never combined the two. Just like you, I use MotiveWave to trade (but just like you, I am a far bigger fan of *nux systems and terminals)

I program in Python quite often, but I never used it to trade Forex (never touched crypto either, because it is so volatile, and no rules seem to apply to it. Your bot seems profitable though, so I wonder how you got that far)

I stumbled upon your blog a while ago and your algo / system looks really promising !!

So I was looking into buying one of your Python courses, to help me on my way. I watched most of your free videos and read all of your .pdf’s. A ton of interesting stuff there !

 

I noticed you added a banner on your blog recently that your course now includes the source code for your crypto trading bot. Which course is this ? The python 3 one ? And are we talking raw code of .py scripts then ? So will I be able to see what filters you use and what requirements need to be fulfilled before a trade gets opened or closed ? Please do not think that I am lazy, and do not want to put in the work, because making a serious effort never scared me. It’s just nice to know how big the ‘push in the right direction’ that you talk about will be 🙂

 

On a different note: I am trading with FXCM and AM now, but I do not believe they are good brokers to trade algos with. You use Oanda and IQfeed for Forex and what for crypto ?

 

Thanks for taking the time to answer these n00b-questions !

Hope this helps anyone out the from these videos

 

After watching this video, this person said:

Thank you very much for your elaborate answer. I have watched the “FAQ-video” and will gladly admit that you did a great job -as always- and that you answered all my questions in a clear way.
I will sleep a night on it, but I believe you will count an extra head in your chatroom from this weekend onwards 🙂
Please keep up the great work you are doing in educating the community and showing us the ins and outs of algotrading !!

Vultr for OpenBSD hosting in Asia

Has anyone ever tried this service of Vultr. It is quite cheap it seems. I want to relocate my Python scripts remotely on a secure open source BSD operating system like OpenBSD. Also, they have a data farm in Singapore where Oanda servers are located. Not only that,, it looks like Binance are hosted in Tokyo which Vultr has as well. This might work well for both crypto and forex strategies.

What do you think?

Thanks

Low spread saves the day for algo forex trading positions

I talk about lessons learned in the live webinar last. It seems to help immensely with a 77% win ratio of 9 positions over the last 12 hours.

Major global Market market opening hours generate these positions

Some pairs are taken due to credit worthiness of certain currencies

You need volume and momentum to trigger the positions

Tight spread cost window of opportunity does exist based on high momentum opportunity

Woot Woot.

Get all the cruclal skills learning this stuff

Is the cryptocurrency trading bot back to normal profits

Is everything back to normal for this crypto currency trading bot. It maybe but it always changes but it is nice to add forex potential as a benefit.

Note that the Python3 Infrastructure course will go back to its previous price of $250 USD.
