So I made a cheap purchase of a desktop system from Thinkpad. It is tiny with only 4 gb expandable to 8 gb. It will also have Ubuntu for all 3 trading bots I have showcased over the last few months. It will also focus on crypto currency trading live which will spanned over 2 exchanges being Binance and OkEx. I am very leery of OkEx with many hints of this exchange having potentia problem. It comes down to withdrawing fund out of the exchange account. Hints include:
I wil give them a change but not not allow the account to build up to much, The primary reason is to include any crypto pairs that are not covered in the usual top 20 I usually not seen on Binance. This includes Maker. I think there should be minimal risk but I am full aware of this.
As for the new desktop, I will report back via Facebook Live stream to show the new system.
This will be used to post on my Analytics service found here
Here is the the Facebook Live video
NOTE I now post myTRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
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?
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!
Wisest tips for Python 2 vs 3 with Anaconda vs PyCharm
This came in from a wise software developer with much experience in these environments. Confusing for many I know based on an email I sent out below. Also, check out the 1 on 1 tutorial below to see how I tried to help others. BIG THANKS to this person for helping who is among some really amazing generous people in this community!
I sense your frustration with the mixed python environments when trying to get everything to play nicely (from your video) . May I suggest that you try setting up virtual python environments with “vritualenv” (and/or manage multiple environments with “virtualenvwrapper”). Create your virtual environment and install Anaconda for python 2.7 into one of the virtual environments that you have setup and that way you have a isolated sandbox with which you can only use that version of python (the other installs are invisible to this environment unless you choose to make them visible – that is a switch in the virtualenv setup), IDE (Spyder) etc Anaconda only, and pip Mongodb will install in this Anaconda environment- without leaking into your other environments. You can setup another for Anaconda for python 3, another for Pycharm etc….
By the way “pip” does work with Anaconda for packages that are not part of Anaconda, you just have to manage those packages yourself and I have never had any issues.
Here are some resources that may be useful to explore should you wish to go down that path.
