China futures marketing trading vs US markets

A query came in about China vs the US markets like CME. How would you respond? 

Hi Bryan, we could know enough information before we judge a market. You are right the CME /US marketing is well regulated for a long time. Now, China futures marketing trading volume is the biggest one in this planet. Also, the regulation is well now. In stock market, maybe some price control still occur, but in future market, I think it’s a fair trading place and there are many opportunities. Later you could know more about this.

For me, I wanna to know more international trading strategies, I had traded in CME of the gold/oil, but it sounds more difficult than China future market. Thanks.

My response:

I cannot really comment on the Chinese market since I don’t know. I am intending to grow an account on Interactive Brokers. Whatever they give me a access to I am willing trade if there is enough liquidity for decent fills. That is all I can say at this point.

FAQ: Algo trading in C++ or Java vs Python

Question I know you recommend testing in Python and recoding in C++/Java. But what if your trading strategy can afford some delay, like a pair trade on the 1 minute chart. I typically trade like this can last 20 minutes to a several hours. Is it ok every to use Python as your main language for execution?

Thanks Bryan

Emicros your answer for tiny risk on FX and USA market index

It seems you can trade emicros for as little as $200 on Optimus for day trading. It seems you need $630 for full margin. I assume this is for holding overnight.

https://community.optimusfutures.com/t/micro-e-mini-futures-everything-you-need-to-know/2799

You can get an entire list of micros from here (just search for micro)

https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/products/

Want to learn more about this, get some free books

According to Interactive Brokers, here are the types of EMicros

S&P, Russell 2000,  Nasdaq 100, and Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Currency pairs:

·  EUR / USD: M6E

·  AUD / USD: M6A

·  CAD / USD: MCD

·  GBP / USD: M6B

·  JPY / USD: MJY

·  CHF / USD: MSF

·  INR / USD: MIR

https://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/index.php?f=43700

The fees are really low from 0.32-.0.47 USD per trade with round trip by doubling. This is even lower than crypto minimum trading I am testing with my bot.

Also, according to Optimus you will avoid the sketchy forex bucket shops:

  1. And finally, smaller contract sizes can allow you to trade a contract in a regulated exchange where price is market-driven and transparent, and where counterparty risk may be tremendously reduced. In short, you can avoid trading with an over-the-counter “bucket shop,” such as the case with CFDs.

This will include your typical forex broker who is not regulated with questionable pairs

There appears to be even gold emicro

Do well? Then you can move up to regular futures contacts or even options

JPMorgan Arms Coders With Trading Licenses as Quants Advance

There you go! This sums it up nicely as the largest bank in the world usually sets standards on quant and automation. Fewer human based trading will be the future.

Here are the articles highlights:

“It’s moving at warp speed and re-inventing what the trading floor looks like.”

“We are hiring coders for equity sales who can tap into the reams of data we have to provide ideas,”

Sippel said his unit has also started developing machine learning-based tools for the trading floor giving the example of “RoboTrader,” a new tool to automate pricing and hedging of vanilla equity options.

“Looking forward,” he says, “we will have much more automation.”

Here is one crucial test I am doing todoay to test which exact Binance stable coin market to trade in:

  1. To retain proit daily and more constitently
  2. Which market condition to maximize profit when conditions allow
  3. Measure win loss ratio in other Binance market to reduce losses
  4. So on and so on

Of course, the full testing results will posted for my Exclusive ELITE membership folks. These type of tests will help them save time and potential losses if they test these on their own. Did I also mention many of them have little time since they have full time jobs? So again, these type of tests help optimize their time and results.

I can tell you from my testing the ETH market is running a consistent win loss ration of over 70% since this was discovered last Thursday!

These are the type of tests I do to blow up any portfoloi no matter what the dinosaur trading assets are doing. So get all this type of unique test over the next three years on the cheap!

Join this ELITE membership right now before the DEADLINE comes to reduces the term from 3 to 2 years. I am hoping

What is wrong with 77% win ratio bot but still loses money?

So this algo #trading bot does well but loses money. There are many more risk management techniques I know to help retain your profit. Instead of letting a big loser trade wipe out your overall PnL, you need to apply these techniques I reveal in this video.

Working on new trading algo ideas

These are 2 new algos I got from people like you. I implemented them testing the viability within Motive Wave. As you see in this video, I can easily implement these ideas using this Motive Wave trading platform. It is worth while to test instead of potentially wasting time trying to implement with Python. Just understand that this Motive Wave platform seems to have the indicators these ideas require. I may implement those and eventually the signals for the Analytics service. These ideas seem to work best with Forex which Motive Wave supports. This includes FXCM or Oanda. some free books
