Kraken advantages with Cryptowatch and Python API

 

I did not know this when I signed up. They have a Python API for their killer CryptoWatch pweb platform. They have some big benefits over Binance:

  1. Allow stop loss and take profit
  2. Cryptowatch platform is owned by Kraken
  3. Cryptowatch has a Python  API
  4. Trade in fiat currency once you move to the intermediate level

This is an unofficial Python wrapper for the Cryptowatch public Data API. Cryptowatch is a cryptocurrency charting and trading platform owned by Kraken.

A sad note here. None of the cryptowatch for Python on GitHub are useful. They also appear to be abandonded. with no live trading capabilities.

I even looked for Kraken repos on Github but resulted in nothing useful.

3rd party software selected for stock charting in Office Excel with advantages of VBA QuantLib Matlab

Hi there

I have investigated various options to help in my trading infrastructure but there is nothing easier than Microsoft Excel. Here is what I mean:

3rd party software selected for stock charting in Office Excel with advantages of VBA

3rd party software selected for stock charting in Office Excel with advantages of VBA



You heard that right. I have decided to commit to a piece of software which is based on Excel worksheets with VBA. It can make life easier but execution is slower. That is ok since these are strictly used for monitoring purposes which has no part of the core trading execution. I already showcased that last week. As a result, you can expect to see some exciting developments  with screeners, decent visual charting, high level market views using Excel. It should be pretty fast to develop as well. Remember I also demoed how to integrate Matlab with Excel as well. Watch this:

Or how about with QuantLib using QuantLibXL with C++

These are the advantages still of IB-Matlab for Interactive Brokers over Matlab 2013b

This is from Yair Altman who develops the Undocumented Matlab IB Connector. Here are some advantages still over Matlab 2013b:

A couple more differences I forgot to mention:

* Trading Toolbox’s implementation only works with R2013b; IB-Matlab works with Matlab releases as old as 7.1 (R14 SP3)
* IB-Matlab has a track record of 3 years, hundreds of clients and (from what some of my clients chose to tell me) $100M being traded daily. It’s been a very long time since anyone reported a bug – it’s rock solid.

What are the advantages of these Matlab future courses? A general FAQ for interest sakes

What are the advantages of these Matlab future courses? A general FAQ for interest sakes

I just got this set of questions from someone on my newsletter list:

 I am from Egypt (I live in Italy now). I am working as researcher at University of Genoa in Italy. I am looking to take some courses that relate with signal processing field, Image Processing, and computer vision and many other courses (around 7 to 8 courses) at Mathworks in UK or USA. I need to know from you “what are the benefits that I will have if I take these courses in mathworks replace on watching these vedios online from Mathworks website or Youtube website (I need more details around this question, please). In addition, I would like to know if I take around 7 or 8 courses at Mathworks, Do I obtain on any discount in the prices of these courses?? Is Mathworks will help me in obtaining job if I take these courses in it? Is Mathworks will help me in finding accommodation in UK or USA during the period of these courses?

I am really very interested to take these courses at Mathworks so I would like you to give some the details around my questions above, please.

Thank you very much

Have Great and Fantastic Day

 

So let’s break it all down:

I need to know from you “what are the benefits that I will have if I take these courses in mathworks replace on watching these vedios online from Mathworks website or Youtube website (I need more details around this question, please).

 

I will have two streams of courses for Matlab. The first is to attack all possible uses for Matlab for trading and research purposes. I am using Matlab 2013a so I look at all toolboxes and even base M language opportunities with existing examples provided by Mathworks. This is current in Matlab 2013a as well. It also saves you a tonne of time in research and development. The other stream is working with highly advanced Simulink/Stateflow. As far as I know, I will be the only person online providing this info online so you be the judge of that.

 

..around this question, please). In addition, I would like to know if I take around 7 or 8 courses at Mathworks, Do I obtain on any discount in the prices of these courses?? Is Mathworks will help me in obtaining job if I take these courses in it? Is Mathworks will help me in finding accommodation in UK or USA during the period of these courses?

 

I recently learned Mathworks never give discounts on their products so don’t expect it. As for my memberships and courses, I will have  a price increase in the near future so your discount is NOW for the current pricing. As for jobs, that is unrealistic. I mean if you are getting Ds in school, is that Mathworks’ fault? You need to apply yourself to be great at Matlab, brand yourself and you MAY get a job or even placement. The way the economy looks right now for jobs, all I can say is good luck with that.Hope this helps somewhat.

The BIG advantages of Deltix over rolling your own HFT trading platform open source vs commercial components

The BIG advantages of Deltix over rolling your own HFT trading platform open source vs commercial components

You like this? Join my FREE newsletter

I got email from a Member questioning:

Deltix capabilities,

Is it good for long term use?

Is this the best platform?

etc

 

First off, I was offered a cut any customer I forward to Deltix but I quickly refused it to stay independent. In a nutshell, I am neutral from all that but I am pumped on this platform! As for pricing, yes it is expensive but if you watch this:

 

 

You will quickly realize the pricing of Deltix will shield from:

1. No need to have in house developers to maintain your connectivity to brokers and feeds. If there are any changes to any of these adapters or FIX engines, the Deltix platform will you shield from these costs. This also greatly reduces your risk of any coding errors when you implement your live trading strategies for those firms that are handling millions in capital each day. So how much does each qualified developer going to cost your per month? I have ranges anywhere from $6-$12k per month!

2. Also, you no longer need to pay expensive monthly FIX engine services to manage your connectivity to your brokers. These services range from %3K (for questionable) all the way to up to $10K with full blown high quality FIX adapter management. Again, Deltix is shielding you from those expenses and risks.

3. If someone chooses to ‘roll’ their own trading solution, they run the risk of not getting proper support or training on their live trading environments. Any modifications to their platform becomes high risk if something goes off the rails. Think Knight Capital where one fat finger cost them over $450M in a few hours. Also, they almost went under. Are you that kind of risk taker?

4. As hinted in ths above video, you will find the management of ticks and historical bars are handled quite nicely in the software high speed database called Tickbase. To get the same kind of performance, you would need to something like kdb+ which is very expensive. If you want a full on universal license, that will run you $1 million. It is much more expensive than Deltix fees. As for any high speed open source NOSQL (i.e. MongoDB) in memory databases, I am not sure if my 6-8 digit customers external investors would be comfortable with that if something goes off the rails. Again, who do you call for support? The management of all this is something for a small shop like mine would never want to take on.

5. Also in the video, you will find the ease of point and click to manage all your data feeds. The cost of this productivity is something that needs to be considered as well.

6. Lastly, if anyone question these kind of costs for the above benefits clearly needs to examine the internal operations on the risk that comes with the savings if anyone choose to roll their own and integrate various commercial solutions.

 

In terms of customers abandoning this, it sounds like they are a growing with those that carefully handpick the vision of what Deltix brings. I cannot speak on how Deltix will take on any clients who would question the platforms capabilities.

From my perspective, I have spent quite a few years looking for anything that can do a decent job. Deltix is definitely it from my point of view. In terms of credibility, the have won various awards at the Technical Analyst Awards for two years in a row. It says something on what the industry. My various members are very excited on the potential of this platform as well as they see the many benefits.
