What top quant grads make on Wall St? Huge 20% upper moves on crypto!

Note the big upper moves I found on my crypto analysis below

Who are the top paying quants? What do top PhD grads start earning at hedge funds, investment banks, or high frequency trading shops? It seems some can be making up $400k all they way up $500k. Check out this article here.

I can also speak of two more additions

As I was doing my usual daily scanning in the crypto currency asset class space, I was blown away to find a 20% up move on a particular pair found on Binance. I have never seen that kind of move before.

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2018/08/20-intraday-xlc-bnb-crypto-currency-asset-class-move-is-craziest-yet/

As this article says, I will be testing these upper moves for a couple of more days. If things continue on a positive basis, I see no reason why I cannot add live trading next week with portfolio optimization. As a result, I will only be posting all my files in the Analytics sections of the site. This includes charts, spreadsheets, Word documents, etc in there.

 

Speaking of Analytics

I have posted a new video to showcase in a slide presentation on the benefits of this membership. You an always join here if interested.

Lastly, if things continue to show upper moves on a consistent basis, expect this price to move up a little bit to justify it’s value. I will also be adding forex and CFDs shortly after using the same strategy I have highlighted over the last few months.

Thanks Bryan

AI experts share what their favorite potential trading algo is

I have received an article that ‘lit up’ my Facebook group. That is nit really tnot rue but relatively speaking, this article does show how these algos with machine learning/artificial intelligence/data science has an impact on the world of quant and algo trading. I would pay attention to the first pick at this article as it shows how influential the first pick is. Also, I find he is a great Youtube video resource if you are new to this space. I am to but I plan to learn more of this stuff later once the cold weather kicks in here in Canada.

I also made a video here.

 

I want to highlight the benefits of my Quant Analytics service. Note that I will not be posting generous tales of of my crypto currency nor forex trading adverntures anymore.

Check out my ‘trailer’ of this service.

Quant Analytics

If you have been an active reader of this list, most of my services are going up. Here is one noted response:

I’m an EMT/student studying python as an amateur programmer with 10 years trading experience.  I love quantlabs courses.

What is the least expensive first few classes you suggest for someone on my budget?

I would typically respond with that there are 2 ‘legacy’ product you will find on my store that are under $250 each. These might be older, but they are still useful to work from for those on a budget.

Just remember I want to be one of the only resources out there who odes live trades, has 3rd party certification of website traffic, and online courses/services for those interested in what I teach. I am also just going into the premium market now as there are lots of free resouces out there for newbies in this space.

Machine Learning framework for Algo trading on Energy markets

I went through an article which focuses on a framework for an algo trading system based on machine learning. This also focuses on the energy market. You may find this article overwhelming but it does cover all the steps involved for a compete machine learning system. I already found some applications which will be helpful for my ranking of crypto currency pairs for each trading session. Note below my webinar for Tues on ‘How I funded bitcoin and automated trades’

Note I am experimenting using both Facebook and Instagram for video delivery. I must I am happier than with the results I am seeing.

Meet well-known algo trading expert Ernest Chan! Backtesting video course

I got this posted on my Facebook group recently:

Meet well-known algorithmic trading expert Ernest Chan at  Quantor!
His Backtesting video course is on the Quantor online educational.

Backtesting: complete online course

I am not sure if this course is unique to his own books or online courses. As for this new algo trading learning platform, it becomes another among many. There prices are fairly low but like many, they teach various techniques to build algo trading platforms and strategies. It seems like a race to the bottom among them including what I do. I do think that educational services will need to step up with real live trading communities. Not only that, they will need to also certify the results which will become an expectation.

As a the highly success marketing mentors tell me, I learn from, many want to see results not tools how to do it. As said, many will need to see certifiable trading results. This will become the next standard which means people will need to buy at high premium prices. This is the direction I plan to go.

Here is what I was working on lately if you missed it:

Let maximise our crypto currency asset class trading positions with portfolio optimization

This 15 (approx) minute video showcases my portfolio optimizer which I have shown before. Do realize this can be applied to any asset class. You can always search on my Youtube channel for ‘portfolio’ as hinted in this video. The idea here is to showcase you could triple your expected return by using the appropriate strategy type with proper optimally weighted positions. This is all shown in the video. I would say this is one of the biggest reasons to automate your strategy and trading. No human can do this if you were to allocate a higher number of positions across multiple asset classes for the day. You could even run this script every few hours if I wanted to allocate positions every X hours. I would have to feel pretty lucky to do that.

Look back matters among other parameters to consider

Do understand your analysis look back also matters depending on your overall asset class performance. As of now, crypto currency has taken a major beating so it might be wise lower the loopback to let’s say 7 days vs 30 as shown in the earlier part of the video.

Note that this can be used on any asset class based on the historical performance of standard open, high, low, and close market data. I use Binance exchange which only allows long only but could also include portfolio strategy methodology of Markovian Long/Short, Markovian market neutral, and Markovian Market Neutral.

Let me know what you think of this.

As usual, this will be part of the Quant Analytics service to enhance your profits so see below if interested

Massive waste of time considering doing startup vs algo trading

I find doing algo trading has longer sustaining benefit with algorithmic or automated  trading as explained below. Startups are temporary for a long shot of profitability.

is founding a startup a massive wast of time considering the vast majority of startups never turn a profit?

Found on Quora

is studying a massive wast of time considering the vast majority of academics don’t earn more like a waitress in a nightclub? 

…. is founding a startup a massive wast of time considering the vast majority of startups never turn a profit?

is studying a massive wast of time considering the vast majority of academics don’t earn more like a waitress in a nightclub?

as a daytrader, I was slightly profitable. I improved as I switched to swing trading, but I learned everything about stock exchanges, money management and markets on the micro timeframe which helps me now building my own algorithm (learning python and R right now).

https://www.quora.com/Is-day-trading-a-massive-waste-of-time-considering-the-vast-majority-of-day-traders-never-turn-a-profit

The top rated answer for this was:

So yes, trading is not a massive waste of time considering my monthly income is 95 percent generated from it. Also, you haven’t heard of me because I’ve started trading for last 2 years. And I’m improving my skills everyday.

I’m generating 40 percent monthly profits on capital invested.

As my Facebook commentor expains, it is the automation that matters via a programming language like Python. If interested, you can always learn the way I do it buy learning from my Infrastructure Build Blocks for Python.

Introducing the my big ass report for algo crypto currency trading: head and shoulders coming soon

I have added some new features into this new mega report. It is really built from the same report I have shown on my Youtube channel over the last few weeks. I plan to include both head and header and inverted head and shoulder charting as well.

Here are some new additions:

  1. I have included new candlestick chart for the last 30, 90, and 180 days
  2. Candlestick detections with bullish and bearish views (for last 30 days) for market reversal
  3. Harmonic patterns with bullish or bearish views
  4. Trend and latest Fibonacci retracement levels (over x lookback) for the period’s minimum and maximum

Everything else is the same but I have decided to include everything into the same report to condense it with all the latest features. I plan to add the head and shoulder with inverted head and shoulder charts.

This will be part of our Analytics service
