Rich Dad, Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki Is Bullish on Bitcoin, gold and silver flat

Rich Dad, Poor Dad Robert Kiyosaki Is Bullish on Bitcoin, Says USD Is a Scam

Now I have seen everything. What he argues totally makes and fully legitimizes the crypto currency pace. What a genius! I never saw thought. He also says gold and silver are not traditionally working as a typical safe haven, He says

“The US Dollar is a scam…I think the dollar is toast because gold and silver and cybercurrency are going to take it out…The US Dollar is gone…In the year 2000 there was one currency, the US Dollar. It was called the reserve currency of the world…and then came bitcoin or cybercurrency.”

“In my new book…

Of course he has a new book!

God’s money, which is gold and silver, government’s money which is fiat currency, which is done by government decree which is the dollar…

This is sort of true but he is right in this terminology but I have show this with my funding Binance

Then there’s the people’s money, which is cybercurrency on the blockchain technology. Gold is a hedge and I am expecting a collapse on the system

Yes gold was flat but have you seen?

Here are your options sunshine

You will always be profitable in crypto currency right now no matter what you hear

Today I announced this profitable story on my social media:

Surprise I even made a video!

You will not like my next video: nothing is profitable today in crypto. just ensure you read it properly: LTCBNB

Nothinig is profitable today in crypto. just but I got many pairs that are moving at least >5% with XZCBNB uo >20%

With these kind of videos, I might as well start increasing my prices before I start marketing

Why this justifies price increases for my services!

Performance Attribution – getting under the hood with s&p dow jones indices links

 

This is from the latest guest blog I posted yesterday. Here some highlights where you can read this entire article including s&p dow jones indices here:

Understanding where returns really come from and what they mean

Attribution analysis involves comparing a portfolio’s performance against a set benchmark and unpacking the excess return to examine the impact of various investment decisions. We list below our selection of the best reports on the subject.

In our first two papers, we focus specifically on risk-adjusted returns, recognising that Modern Portfolio Theory assumes that higher risk should be compensated by higher returns. Register today for free and immediate access to the papers below – and 20,000 others!

SPIVA® Through a Risk-Adjusted Lens (S&P Dow Jones Indices, July 2018)

Modern portfolio theory purports that greater risks should be compensated with higher returns. S&P Dow Jones Indices examines actively managed funds and evaluates their risk-adjusted performance.

How Sharp is the Sharpe-Ratio? Risk-Adjusted Return Measures (StatPro, 2016)

This StatPro paper compares the Sharpe Ratio with a number of competing and complementary rations for assessing risk-adjusted returns.

Performance Attribution through a Factor Lens (Invesco Risk & Reward, July 2018)

Turn to p42 of Invesco’s quarterly Risk & Reward magazine for a six-page discussion of how standard attribution analysis techniques can be adjusted to develop a factor attribution which reconciles realistically with the investment process.

Total Portfolio Performance Attribution Methodology (Morningstar, 2015)

Morningstar reviews methods for analysing and attributing portfolio performance, decomposing returns into decisions that stem from the plan sponsor versus those that stem from the investment manager.

20% intraday XLC BNB crypto currency asset class move is craziest yet

This strategy and report seems to be work quite nicely against the crypto currency asset class space. Last week, I reported a 12% intraday move but today was the highest. It was for XLC BNB with 20+% move within intraday. That is big! As I say, most portfolio managers would be happy with 1% move all the time. It seems that these trading ideas seem to work constantly over the last few weeks. It does not matter even if the crypto currency asset class space gets crushed for the day. I can always find some profitable move among the 300+ crypto currency pairs. Crazy thing about this crypto currency asset class.

The 25 + minute video reveals all the data!

NOTE: This 20% move is meant to be XZC (z coin) not Z Cash!

As a i mentioned in the 25+ minute video, Binance Coin (BNB) is currently the strongest crypto coin out there. It has been confirmed to be the case for all of 2018. In fact, it is now in the top 20  crypto coins by volume according to Coin Market Cap. It is also used as one of the stable or base coins Binance uses in their pairs which move the most. Tether is the other among Bitcoin and Ethereum. I have also proven somewhat you could add the hot coin to trade against these big daddy coins as well. It seems to double down or even triple down your trading opportunity if you stick with Binance. Always remember they are one of the largest exchanges globally volume over the last few months as well.

 

Here is the video.

Note that if things continue with my reporting and analyzing on a positive note, I will have enough confidence to say: let’s starting live trading now.

If things continue, I see now reason to keep my Quant Analytics service at the current price as well. I just even raised my ELITE service by 50% as of today as well. If it works,, people pay since it becomes more valuable.

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.

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.

Gold, CNY, Devaluation And Crash: what is the safe haven ?

It seems many humans think they get their calls right. In this article, it seems he feels both gold will go up while China yuan will decline. What will be the future safe haven?

https://www.silverdoctors.com/gold/gold-news/gold-cny-devaluation-and-crash-david-brady/

I find this is true but gold has been flat for many years. It is just used as a safe haven asset when the stock indices suddenly drop. The panic has not yet set in, but do not be surprised if crypto currencies like Bitcoin will be looked upon. In the last panic last year it was Bitcoin that easily received the hot capital as being safe haven trade. Even Japanese yen and indices were not as high which is perceived another recent safe haven.

New Facebook Pages videos

Over the last few days, the crypto currency asset class market has been literally crushed. According to CoinMarketCap, no more than 5 were profitable in the top 100 coins. It seems I have built a little script that still finds some fantastic intraday opportunity of 8% and 12%. Even professional portfolio managers would love to have 1% daily. I seem to be getting at least 8%. For these videos, just go over to my QuantLabsNet Facebook page. Look for 2 recent videos entitled:

Another tough day in this #cryptocurrency asset class. Please not #coinmarketcap is now paid which may limit my strategy I showed yesterday.

And

Very tough #cryptocurrency day but found 12% intraday move on #coinmarketcap
I found this using this exchange with only 2 of 100 profitable crypto currency pair. I show I accomplish thanks to automa…

I have not even mentioned the potential crazy initial coin offerings with lucrative opportunities. I just posted a chart on my Instagram on how ICOs are still red hot. I do think this will be the case until the regulators step in. As a result, these operators will just focus on regions with exchanges with no constraints. I always compare the performance of the crazy returns of penny stocks when you watch educators like Tim Sykes. Of course, this involves lots of testing for potential slippage and manipulated execution.

New Youtube videos

I have added new intro guided tour videos for both memberships of Quant ELITE and Quant Analytics. These will highlight the different features of reports and other analysis tools available in both memberships. Just go over to my Youtube.com/quantlabs channel. Look for two videos:

Quant ELITE membership guided tour

Quant Analytics guided tour

You will also see some tutorial videos for my Quant Analytics which will includes forward looking videos on:

How to understand Euro Zone stats for ESI

How to use FED and other US government forward looking economic data

These are based on fundamental data that affects all asset classes like options, equity, and currency.

More videos will be posted today.

Importance of volatility of volatility

 

See the article and importance of volatility of volatility below

First, a message from our sponsor:

I am keeping the Python Infrastructure course pretty affordable for the next few days. I am continuing to let you know that this course will potentially double in coming days! If things work out as described below, you will find this material will become pretty valuable. If you click the link, you can find ALL the details in this course. I will also be adding the latest learnings of crypto and Forex (for Oanda for USA residents) to get you running to have your own ‘crude algo trading system.’ One popular request is a simple video to showcase a very very primitive but simple system capturing data, set up a simple strategy, and do the automated trading. Again, just click the link below to get further details or if you want to proceed learning more.

The importance of volatility of volatility

Thanks for my Facebook Group called “Quant HFT high frequency trading with Matlab C++ Java R Python C# Excel’ reveals some popular topics that people like. Here is one such article about volatility and volatility of volatility. Read it here:

http://www.sr-sv.com/the-importance-of-volatility-of-volatility/

It is predicted that volatility will kick into high gear in the near term. Volatility in forex is where you make money. With potential trade wars kicking in, some will benefit from this especially if they have a robust, automated strategy to handle it.

I am not sure if volatility will affect crypto. When you look at the sudden 7% rise of Bitcoin 2 days while it drops off yesterday, these are some classic examples of vol. Some even say that the volatility in other asset classes may drive others into crypto currency since it could be seen as a safe haven. Go figure huh? Just remember this new strategy I have worked makes me somewhat prepared.

Intriguing Failing of Convolutional Neural Networks: Which asset class?

Intriguing Failing of Convolutional Neural Networks: Which asset class?

As explained in this Uber engineering article, it seems that this Convolutional Neural Networks has failed them. Some folks have come to asking about this. If you saw yesterdays email, it seems that Long Short Term Memory was more effective. I am not machine learning expert but I am asking for anyone’s experience here. Let me know how you find these two methodologies can be used for which algorithmic trading asset class. Here is the article

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.

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