Why cannot use C++ to write AI cryptocurrency trading programs

I will need to say C++ is quite an interesting language. So is C. A great machine learning framework like Google Tensor Flow, It seems is written in C++ with a front end built around Python. Just check out some of the latest machine learning tutorial books including ones I am reading. I will soon to a review on the one I am reading which is great for foundation. This also addresses cryptocurrency  asset class.

Check out some of the successful positions I have had in the last day:

Latest Private Video How to save Your Binance Cryptocurrency Account

I also just a recorded 1:15 hour video. This covers the topics of lesson learned with early bot development which can lead to massive money loss. I also cover ways to protect your Binance account in early testing.

Another question came up where I went to great detail on implementing a position manaher to enhance profit. I cover the various parameters you can tweak to reduce risk and maximize profit opportunities.

This will be posted into my ELITE membership late today

Battling AI algorithm tested on a quantum computer for first time

Battling AI algorithm tested on a quantum computer for first time

Someone even stated that Renaissance Technologies has been testing this for 2 years. What do you think? Here is the article. Is this reading for algo or high frequency trading?

Crypto Currency Real Time Trading Signals Risk Taking

I got this email from someone:

Is it a Paid trial? or will you be sending test signals first and then charging subscription fees?

The thing is I am interested in the service but depending on the price as the dollar prices have been fluctuating a lot lately in my country. The price of $ went 30% up and that is why I only spend money on software and services which I am certain will be a good investment.

I made a video response here

 

 

Signals are still working quite nicely. Over 22 hrous, 22 positions had a 82% win ration and trading return of 2.029%. Not bad for this strategy. All the big crypto coins are still negative with the exception of Litecoin.

Just remember I will be releasing these trading sigals in coming days. If interested, get the details here

Google releases open source reinforcement learning framework for training AI models

This article explains why Google is leading the way in machine learning, deep learning, and eventual artificial intelligence. Here is a summary:

Inspired by one of the main components in reward-motivated behavior in the brain and reflecting the strong historical connection between neuroscience and reinforcement learning research, this platform aims to enable the kind of speculative research that can drive radical discoveries,” Pablo Samuel Castro and Marc G. Bellemare, researchers on the Google Brain Team, wrote in a blog post. “This release also includes a set of colabs that clarify how to use our framework.”

It is the word ‘easy’ that attracts me to this framework to dig into in terms of machine learning. Also, this repository is written in Python which is an extra nice bonus as well.

Just a reminder of the latest events:

Adjusting Your Trading Algo Paremeters via Logs

For next Saturday Sept 8, I will be running an private event for my Elite members on the topic of:

This is becoming an important phase that I feel should be taught for any trading researcher in terms to tweek the performing of your trading ideas.

I am still yet to determine the time.

Webinar event: Build a baby automated trading system with algos require streaming

 

This is a very typical conversation I have with online strangers who want to control their own future. This will help those automated trading with altos require streaming.

A Twitter followed opened up with this conversation which created the idea to do this webinar topic.

I am thinking it may be better to pay someone to do the programming? I just don’t have the time. Do all algos require streaming from IQFEED or a third party service. I am looking at kairos have you heard of the program and any thoughts/ recommendations?

Ok I am very motivated . Sounds like python is the way to go. I have tried IBridgePy but didn’t get Far….My system is very simple .

Understanding your own coding is most predictable. I have many folks who lost thousands dues to bad programmers. This is what I have experienced among folks like yourself.

Thanks. How long would you say it will take someone like myself to get a system up  and running and what services do you offer to get me to where I need to be?

It depends on your motivational level. It could take a couple of months with Python. If you try with a lower level like C++ or Java, it would be probably years but most people give up on it.

Here are some topics for the event

Understanding your own coding is most predictable. I have many folks who lost thousands dues to bad programmers. This is what I have experienced among folks like yourself.

  1. Here is what I will cover to build your ‘baby algo trading system’:
  2. 1. It depends on your asset class and broker of choice.
  3. 2. Sample way to download data with 3rd party solutions ranging from Excel to Java ion source source scanners.
  4. 3. How to use a Python package to do quick analysis using a popular technical analysis library
  5. 4. Analysis the results to assess trading order decisions
  6. 5. Which brokers with packages to execute orders

This will take place:

Note that this takes place on Tues Sep 4 dues to Labour Day!

Google says machine learning AI reduce data center energy consumption by 30%

 

\Another claim of fame. This is good for mankind but there are the other nefarious. I just talked to a content editor of a large book publisher who told me most banking/hedge fund managers are not real believers in machine learning stuff for the company. They will however put together small teams to research to appease their clients who expect them to explore these topics. This is the result of a hyped industry. Also, remember these same managers are the ones who are ultimately signing the paychecks of these researchers.

Anyhow, this is the general concept until some team comes up with an entire approach to machine learning working for the automated space. As you know many of us can be wrong. I made some videos on this below.

 

Don’t forget this Monday Aug 27, I will be doing my webinar on this topic. I just been asked to ass Easy Language for Tradestation as well.

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.

Quant Analytics

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.

Neural network AI is simple. So Stop pretending you are a genius

Neural network AI is simple. So Stop pretending you are a genius

This was a wildly popular topic in my Facebook group.

Here are some quotes that may be relevant for you:

xNeural networks are dumb black box systems. If you torture them enough you can get great fit of test data, but you won’t get great results from randomly sourced tests. AI is really good at spurious correlations….

xqPeople want to ascribe magic powers to AI, but for the most part AI can’t do anything a human can’t. There are some exceptions, but only for transparent AI. Neural Networks aren’t transparent, and even in the transparent systems a human would be able to replicate the final result…

AI can be built to do great things. Neural networks have limitations.

Here is that popular article 

More questions from my previous post

Would appreciate your guidance

I wanted to reach out to you to ask you for some advice & guidance. I am not a programmer, but I am trying to create a solution that will allow me to work with live tick data (Forex mainly) (to create live dashboards, currency strength, momentum etc) and historical data to conduct further analysis.

I was thinking to feed this data into a database (I saw in your video that you are doing something similar). I wanted to get your advice as to the method of getting live tick data (something that does not cost a fortune would be ideal 🙂 ) ..

I spoke to a freelancer who said that Jfoex api is only a java library and it would not allow me to work with live tick data.

I’ve also had a look at a few tools to connect to dukascopy to export historical tick data, its just the ‘live tick-data’ part that I am unsure about.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

My answer was:

If you just want market data use IQFeed forex option for $30/month. Do understand as part of their terms of service, you cannot redistribute this outside of your own use. If you need it for trading, always use the broker’s data to keep in synch. Also, you will need a live Dukascopy account for the live tick data but again only for your purposes. Hope this helps

Is this a valid trick of the trade for doing AI in trading?

Is this a valid trick of the trade for doing artificial intelligence in trading?

The trick, then, is to take a more thoughtful approach to deploying AI. Technical prowess obviously matters; Sentient employs a couple of dozen AI experts and constantly researches new methods. But business models matter enormously, too.

Apparently hedge funds have a limit on how they apply artificial intelligence. What are they?

The classification system that gauges the relative merits of these strategies is itself run by machine learning. But humans do the actual trading, following the algorithm’s instructions.
