TONIGHT Meeting and tomorrow’s regret

Hi there

TONIGHT is the when I remove all the following. Also, you will find the webinar invitation meeting details for tonight below.

Ok this is urgent. I am only keeping this strategy Python code until TONIGHT. This is only 1 day away. I really don’t want to retype what is in this video. As a result, I would stress to watch all 20 minutes. See this video below. It should blow your mind ! The source code I provide is available until tomorrow where you need to get on the early bird list. Join on this as soon as possible:

If you want to get access to this right away, go here or get the full details:

Here is the Buy button if you really want it:

I will cap this to 10 people over the next few days to weeks. Also note that this is membership is set for a 3 years term. I will reduce to a 2 year term in coming days to weeks away. Seriously…why wait?

Next up. I had someone on Twitter ask about converting strategy code from Metatrader to Python. I never heard back so this gave me a neat idea. Do you have a trade idea you want converted into Python? Let me know right away before someone gets ahead of you. This will make an interesting topic for tomorrow’s webinar event. Again, let me know if you are interested.

Bryan Downing is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Finance Master of Robots Left AQR and Now He’s Coming for Wall Street

“There is tremendous hype and very few people have a track record,” Lopez de Prado said in a phone interview. “It’s not helpful.” Finance quant of the year said

“My ambition has always been to help modernize finance and offer disruptive solutions to investors,” he said. “The best way to do it is with my own set-up.”

The problem is, computer-powered strategies are struggling to live up to the hype,

His diagnosis: Fund managers are routinely throwing data at a robot without forming a theory. If a backtest suggests investors should snap up stocks on a given day of every month and sell them a number of days later, only a joined-up rationale for the trade will work in live markets.

“Without this theory-ML interplay, investors are placing their trust on either toy models or high-tech horoscopes,”

“It’s not natural in finance, right? The history of finance has been that discretionary portfolio managers used to run the place,” he said. “And these firms fitted quants as if they were discretionary PMs.”

YouTuber charged $199 for shoddy machine-learning course

If you have not heard, machine learning/data scientist Youtube enthusiast has been burning people with his $200 course. Apparently a lot of the material was just cut and paste it from other  Github Repositories. Over 1200 people had registered for this which meant they were not happy. Funny thing is that this YouTuber did not originally wanted to refund his students.

https://www.theregister.co.uk/AMP/2019/09/27/youtube_ai_star/

This is the sort of fiasco and scams that go on with online education. At the other end, you have low quality courses that are commoditized through these MOOC sites for profit.

Just as a side note, all my material is my own for my own daily trading problems that I engineer I resolve through Python.

For instance, I will be there promoting my poor learning Python course this week. I intend to increase the price by 20% as it contains a framework to rapidly build trading bots. As you know, I focus on the asset classes of FX and cryptocurrency.

If you are interested in getting this course at the lower price, go here

Note that this sales pages will be changing this coming week.

I will also give you lifetime access to my private/anonymous chat server. I will be offering many different bonus workshops to enhance its course throughout the next few weeks.

Thanks

Tax is killing you webinar Mon Aug 12 at 12PM EDT

Let’s do webinar on taxation. This is important since no one speaks of it. Here is one quote (from Quora) I would think should open your eyes:

A guy who is making 200k after tax, and lives in a low cost country. He saves and invests about 150k a year and can still live a great life in a developing country on 50k. He only spends $500-$600 a month on rent and bills. He probably looks rich compared to most locals but most people probably assume he is just doing OK – just middle-income.



https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-most-common-misconception-about-accumulating-wealth

Also, what the video below about a kid upset on how taxes upsets his game with Monopoly. Life is like that. So why pay tax? I think it is crime against business owners, traders, and researchers who innovate. The country you live in is most likely running out of money so they get desparate with audits, local tax increases, and so on. Let’s talk about it.

Bryan Downing is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Amateur Quants Analyst Suddenly Everywhere in China

Hey Have you seen this questions of what a amateu quant is? One comment of this is quite good found here ?

Amateur Quants are unskilled, unprofessional with no expertise & adequate knowledge. They are rookies. Just like a amateur trader who trades chart patterns, moving averages crosses etc.

This comment among others is found in my Facebook Quant programming group.
