DIY algo trading vs pro retail platforms

Here are some answers below of someone who wanted a software platform to be developed for their new algo trading needs. I explore other potentially better options including robust retail trading platforms like MotiveWave 

Free books https://quantlabs.net/

or learn algo trading https://quantlabs.net/dvd

I would suggest IQFeed where you host it in a message queue/NOSQL database like Redis

C++ is too much overkill 

From my perspective, have you looked at MotiveWave? It might offer some more advantages that you might not have thought have, You can integrate IqFeed and IB.

MotiveWave also offers huge advantages with options and futures unlike other platforms I have seen. 

You can see my thoughts on it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRBVku_rvEg&list=PLzrMTuGTDsMvR0LeSpq03xjTX_rSaDx

You can definitely use Redis as the datastore with Python scripts to work with MotiveWave. 

Overall, I am just introducing other options that might be helpful over the long term if you go into options or futures.

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,

Insider pro lessons learned video for Crypto algo trading on Sep 17

I cannot type what I talk about here but there are quite a number of gems I have never publicized before. This is an important 30+ minute video. I especially highlight you do not need to trade 24/7. If you set a certain target of daily percent moves against your overall portfolio, you can easily reduce risk by overtrading. This takes place in both up and down markets for the crypto currency asset class.

There are lessons in this 30 minute video

Please watch this video with all the others I have highlighted on Youtube channel at youtube.com/quantlabs.

WEBINAR Debugging your log for algo trading patterns with crypto currency asset class

I have reversed yesterdays topics. This event on Tuesday is becoming more crucial in my recent success in the down market of the crypto currency asset class

I have an important event for my Quant Elite members on Tues regarding debugging you trading strategy with logs, I thought I would make a last offer for those interested in this event. I don’t think I will even record as it is meant for ANNUAL FULL ELITE members. If you are interested in knowing further about this, get in touch with me right away to be included on the details of this. It takes place this Tues Sep 11 6pm Eastern Standard time 

I just posted this yesterday.

I have put together a 20 minute video describing the wild losses of yesterday my system picked up. It was apparently one of the worst days for the crypto currency asset class in about a year. As a result, I made some huge improvements which looks like I may have resolved. I even offer some debugging tips to help out here. As a result of this, you may want to check out this video here.

As said, if you are interested in this event for Tuesday, get in touch right away to make your arrangements to be part of this. This is a topic that not many talk about but as a programmer, this point of view gives you a unique perspective in trading for big profit!

Thanks Bryan

Demo of live crypto currency positions profit and loss algo trading

 

I just did a 38 minute on digging into how certain positions can be profitable or losing money, I go so deep here I need to track a way to close out the positions for profit and loss measurement. The logs I generated are very good to see the life cycle of the position. You see see if position goes profitable and see how fast it can go negative. This is the advantage of using these type of logs. In fact, I may do a day webinar for my Elite members for this.

Here is the video

Machine Learning framework for Algo trading on Energy markets

I went through an article which focuses on a framework for an algo trading system based on machine learning. This also focuses on the energy market. You may find this article overwhelming but it does cover all the steps involved for a compete machine learning system. I already found some applications which will be helpful for my ranking of crypto currency pairs for each trading session. Note below my webinar for Tues on ‘How I funded bitcoin and automated trades’

Note I am experimenting using both Facebook and Instagram for video delivery. I must I am happier than with the results I am seeing.

Overview of backtrader with Python 3 for a complete algo trading system

There are numerous part of this video but I try to explain how to install backtrader which I got running on Python.This can also be used in conjunction to build a out a complete algo trading system.  This project clearly is growing quickly to replace Quantopian and maybe Quantstart. It is 100% in Python with some great example Quick Start guides to get you up and running. I am sure the community is up to par by now.

Oanda? Really so here is why ?

Also, I explain how I may go back to Oanda( ugh and yuck) as a quick and easy gateway for forex or CFD trading. This  project will ease the intro to a forex algo trading system with 100% Python without the complex extra process of including Java with the JForex platform from Dukascopy. Also, it seems American residents really only have Oanda as the only remaining choice to use Python. It sucks I know but this includes the huge market interest for using the 100% Python option for an algo trading system. Just remember Dukascopy does not allow USA customers so I can only use Oanda for now. My opinions of Oanda has not changed. I just wish there was a better option to implement.

Also, the Python backtrader project support Oanda and my eventual migration to Interactive Brokers for eventual options/futures. Always remember this asset class is used by institutions and is recession proof as well.

Spoiler alert

To save you time, I also tried to install a GUI project built for backtrader called Omega UI.

https://github.com/OmegaTrading/OmegaUI

Most of the video focuses on this attempt but this project clearly needs a tutorial or document to get it running. This portion was a chunk of time wasted so don’t bother.

Note: I plan to only use backtrader for the broker connection only as explained above. I don’t plan to change the strategies I have been working over the last number of months

I will be adding the productive learning to my course as explained below

Algo trading with crypto currency trading Texas style

Algo trading with Crypto currency trading Texas style

Originally, this online Meetup was scheduled for last week where the audience was based in Texas. That never happened so I stuck with the name. Here was the description which focuses on crypto currency trading

I thought I would do my first LIVE stream on Youtube. I am hoping to build a Python infrastructure using the instruction of Python book from QuantStart. Let’s see what happens

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2018/06/algo-trading-with-crypto-currency-texas-style-video-playback/

This video was about 1 hour. I also talked about my latest discovered of crypto currency trading from last week.

New Combined parameters to use for optimal real time crypto currency trading

Lots of parameters I am using to combine proper crypto currency trading decisions for optimal profit return. I am showcasing the combination of this for highest returns when position are entered. This is important to watch to understand you cannot depend on one or two indicators. You may wonder why folks are losing money left and right. There are so many false positives out there for bad positions to go bad. Do understand these parameters can be used universally for all major asset classes. This includes crypto currency with Binance Exchange for my needs. Also, I am using Python to create these but I am starting to hit limitations with it.

More to read here if interested

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2018/06/new-combined-parameters-use-optimal-real-time-crypto-currency-pairs/

It was recommended to drop the trend/linear regression to reduce the number of parameters. Also, there is a discussion of using machine learning linear regression to be added to these parameters. It sounds like it might dilute the accuracy of the results. As for me, t might be wise to play around with these new techniques in the near future as a form to experiment with. Also, I will keep everything simple as is listed above. I also want to move forward to actually fund a Binance exchange account to see what happens.

As a reminder:

Lastly, I just changed my pricing on the online store:

 

Python 3 trading course with components for algo trado trading infrastructure: $247

 

2 Month Trial for Quant Elite with an extra 3 weeks: $500

 

Annual Quant Elite: $4800 ← yes I jacked this up over $3400 with the future stuff coming!

(Hmm….maybe you should have jumped the deals I was putting out there over the last few weeks)
