Why muddle to learn the Interactive Bokers API with Python

 

YES! Why muddle with this API stuff? Some may need structure in order to save time! You can waste loads of time trying to set this up! I explain a typical scenario in this 4 minute video of newbies struggling with this stuff.

The scenario is

Hey Bryan I have the api downloaded and am trying to get basic order execution going – I was wondering if you have any basic code that connects to interactive brokers (do you connect to TWS or through gateway?) and places basic orders.  When I look at this stuff it is all greek to me but I am trying to muddle through it.

I mentioned about this course you can learn quite quickly with

Your game plan to Python3 Custom Algo Trading LIVE intake

 

I like these questions especially from those of different backgrounds. It just shows it not just finance or well off individuals who do this stuff. I am hoping folks are really questioning how to secure their future. This algo trading with Python 3 is definitely one way. This upcoming recession is going to get very ugly. We have not even addressed the future of in how robotos/automation will affect your career.

Here are the questions

Very awesome stuff, I have to admit im little overwhelmed with all the info but am making a bit of sense of it. I am super interested in the python 3 course, ive looked over ccxt and am still not a big coder, I drive construction semi trucks. 

Although I did see a past webinar you did in august for converting mt4 to python and am wondering if you have saved video or any info you could point me to about that.

Im coming up with a game plan to afford the py3 course, how long will this be available?

Thanks again

I am also referring to the this Python 3 course with live intake for the first week of Jan 2019. I discuss how this course will be structured. Now is the time to join to start your learning before the live intake starts!

Python open source algo trading trading vs Tradestation

Here are some questions from South Korea about the next Python algo trading course intake starting in Jan 2019. This a solution to compare to Tradestation

Python Algo Trading Infrastructure with Crypto Currency

I live in south korea, did research with tradestation for 2 years.

My country only have tradestation…

I really interest in your course…

But question is..

1) What is good point than tradestion ?

– Processing speed

– **Security

( Is it possible that the tradestion guy or some tradesation related server see my code if they interested ? )

– No blackbox

– Operation stability

– anymore good reason ?

Regards,

Whoa crypto is back after digging deep with huge moves on Binance

 

I am thinking of dumping Oanda due to my analysis last nite. See the previous post for that reason. After digging deep back into crypto with Binance, I was seeing some funny business in the charts. I must say I am quite intrigued since I thought this exchange was always above aboard. I could be wrong no different than anyone else.

Any ways, this video should show the potential of crypto with the newer pairs. DO note that there are 410+ plus but I am sure there are some crap ones with low volume. Some will be useless since they are manipulated potentially. You be the judge after watching this with future videos I will do.

 

See below for this Mondays’ webinar details

I will be digging deep with my Analytics service which you can join here

Sheesh… this ia time a waster as well as not a proper use of your capital deployment. You should always focus on where max opportunities will be. Remember this log is from the data form Oanda with both CFD and Forex. Now we have to look toward crypto on Binance for that. As a result, I shall do that as explained in this Facebook live stream.

P.S. I you want to trade the real deal instead of CFD, trade options/futures on Interactive Brokers. AS we know, that is big boy games where you better know how to pony up some cash.

Facebook Live: Why I should give up on Oanda forex and CFD trading

This video was on Facebook It is also in relation with this posting

Is forex worth it compared to lower risk better performance in crypto currency?

Sheesh… this ia time a waster as well as not a proper use of your capital deployment. You should always focus on where max opportunities will be.

Is forex worth it compared to lower risk better performance in crypto currency?

Man, forex could be a waste of time. I look at the usual fast movers that involve ZAR (South Africa) or TRY (Turkish Lira), the RSI spikes but you will see the various timeframe which quickly move against you. Also, the rate of change is very small as in < 0.5%. Is it worth the risk with these unpredictable or volatile behavior? For instance, if you want to get an up move of 1.5 (vs 0.5), you would need to add 3x leverage. With this in mind, it shows that the risk is very very high with low probability. As compared to crypto with gets you easily 1% up moves with no leverage, it makes more sense to get better performance with much lower risk. Even compared to commission fee of retail forex brokers, crypto currency exchanges are so marginal that it makes it more worth it to focus on crypto.  I may do this soon as forex is becoming a lost cause with all the reasons I am stating here.

Remember I am using Binance as the crypto exchange and Oanda with forex.

Believe in yourself with this algo trading course for Python signals triggered

I have never made a hard hitting video on what we are about to face on the economic. Today, we have an opportunity to take advantage of something with massive rewards.It is only you who is limiting your future. I cannot say it any other way unless you watch this video I jut made. The aim is about this: signals triggered

Here are the questions I cover in this 24 minute video with more personal opinion

You can always take advantage of what I am offering but I explain in this video why I highly doubt I will ever offer this again. Here are the details:

Some questions from 2 people:

Hello Brian,

I am interested in the Python3 Infrastructure course.  I went to the site and looked over the curriculum.  

Questions:

– At the end of the course will our system actually submit trades for us based on the data analytics and trading signals?  

– At the end of this course will we be able to have data/analytics for forex and cryptos, other assets or commodities?

– Are you using the platform going long and short (automated)?

——

So from what I’ve gathered, I need a bot that triggers buys/ sells based on multiple indicator alerts using Terminal / Redis / Database / Binance/GDAX API, etc.

here’s what I currently have:

TradingView / Autoview ($80/m total):

– limited to single indicator buy/sell triggers

– to combine indicators you have to code in Pine Script, or buy custom alert strategies

– needs a private server running TradingView/AutoView

– signals triggered from their servers (TradingView/Autoview)

– Autoview syntax doesn’t fire when the computers date/time is latent by 1000ms (yuck)

Binance Maker (free):

– Windows version is buggy

– can’t offset, can’t do anything cool

– it’s not a bot

– to make it a bot, you are manually coding numbers and %’s by hand and even then it can fail

– Needs a private server

– directly connected to Binance API

TrailingCrypto (free):

– it’s not a bot

– great features but incredibly complicated to use

– triggers on email alerts, but I’m still relying on other servers (not directly connected)

– signals triggered from their servers

You think this class is what I need to get my hands in the clay and launch bots in terminal? If so, I’m an immediate yes.

Some crypto currency pair exist and Gold proves to be safe haven today

Here we go again. Another blood bath in the markets today. We need to decide where to trade and how to find predictability in the markets.

Crypto

Always random moves but both BNB ETH and BNB BTC has done very well again. Eg. >15% with others doing well as well. But what are the ones to trade? I just wish we could short these pairs because that is what was the only ones to profit opportunity today.

Forex

The usual culprits always show for potential ranging with TRY or ZAR for max pontial. Which cross will work this time? Will NZD oR AUD rise as their markets open up?

CFD

Gold was the only predictable with a >2%. That is a gimme. Also, there were so many shorting opportunities here but I only long for now. Shorting opportunity existed especially with the bad OPEC news today.

My Analytics service seems to be improving

New minute real time chart with BNB BTC moving big

It seems this pair of the Binance Coin against Bitcoin has been moving a lot lately. I even showed the new real time minute chart. That was flat to. At the moment, this is a close to realtime but really minute.

As for forex, there were the usual suspect but the Swiss Franc was the base quote for New Zealand, Australian, and Singapore. What is going on here outside of the timing ?

I am unsure about the CFD but gold was up there with Hong Kong 33 (HK 33)

More analytics still to come
