Taking questions Now for Building a Baby Automated Trading system Event Tonight

I am taking questions for this event tonight at 7PM EDT. I got a bunch already. I cannot received them within a few hours of this time, I may not be able to answer your question!

Where to ask?

Email them or comment by asking them here on my Facebook Quantlabsnet page

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 TONIGHT!

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY FOR THIS OFFER!

Bryan

Over the next day or so, I will be applying an SSL certificate to the site QuantLabs.net. This means it will be secured and can be trusted for purchases. This has been a long time coming so read below to see the details and impact. You get the benefit of building altos and automated trading!

 

As a result of this installation, I will be hold a temporary sale for my new membership level of the Quant Elite 2 month trial. I will be doubling the offer from 2 to 4 months at the same price of $497

 

After this sale ends, it will go back to publicly and permanently display $750 for 2 months. So do the math:

 

Over the next few days, you will be paying $497/4 months which is $124.25 per month for the same access.

 

After this offer, it goes back to $750/2 months which is $375 per month.

 

NOTE that this offer will never be this low ever again.

 

You get the exact same access of:

Actual results of back test history from automated trading strategy

Actual results of back test history from automated trading strategy

 

This is how to get actual results. I tried a test yesterday to see the reach of ‘live webinars’ I plan to do. This is where I can use the Zoom.us service to synchronize with my Facebook Group or Page or the Youtube channel. It seems the Facebook group was best but Youtube has longest lasting result. I have various versions but remember the longest and original version is found in my Facebook group. See the link below.

2 video versions found on Youtube including the podcast version. I still think the Facebook group is the best one.

Here is that link to the Facebook Group video version.

https://www.facebook.com/quantlabsnet/

The Detailed Reveal of the Videos

In order to try to make sense of these, I wanted to demonstrate how you are able to use your broker platform (in my case Dukascopy JForex) to generate historical market date which goes all the way back to Jan 2005. It depends on which instrument you choose and when it was added by Dukascopy.

I also divided up various instruments into either Forex or CFD since this broker is out of Switzerland. The CFD category was then split into ‘commodity’ or equity which focuses on stock market indices or ETF. This totals over 92 instruments I can watch as hinted in the videos.

With all this data, I plan to use this Daily data to break up into 3 month segments determined at the start of each season. E.g. Dec 21, Mar 21, etc. I can then use this data to run my new Python scripting analysis to forecast which instruments should give strongest return. Because of real market historical data, I can easily compare the actual results versus the forecast. Pretty genius huh?

 

I heard this back testing technique has been very popular. If the forecasts prove to be a winner with the comparison of actual results, we have a winner. Winner makes things way more expensive (hint hint) so we are on the verge of the truth. Show time results will be revealed as well soon!

Thanks for reading and watching

Real factors for Wealth creation with automated trading

Real factors for Wealth creation with automated trading

A newsletter subscriber response from my original email and video:

A comment on your video:

 

You highlight the 2008 loss below – the GFC correction, these happen usually every 7- 10 years. They don’t happen overnight, they build over period of time and can b e avoided. The canary in the coal mine  and a good indicator is the  yield curve. When you have a yield curve that is flat or inverted, it mean that we may be due for a correction. That is not the case for the US – see http://stockcharts.com/freecharts/yieldcurve.php  This still has a way to go i.e.  “risk on”

On the other hand, commodity economies such as Australia and  Canada are sensitive to demand for resources. Australia is highly exposed to China, so if China “sneezes”, Australia “catches a cold”. The yield curve for China is of concern. See below:

 

Other factors to be aware of are related to Geopolitics. The three arms of warfare are cyber, economic and kinetic. The last (kinetic) is the most potent, the stock market soars and in the past fortunes were made. Pay attention to the grand chessboard.  (https://www.stratfor.com/analysis/us-naval-update-map-april-6-2017 )

 

That’s enough from me,

Your Retirement Your Stock Picks Your Automated Trading

I find retiring could be a problem for people as they get closer to it. When you look at the charts that I do, you will notice a ugly downward trend in so many ways. I am not sure if there if will be a stable future for all of us as government will waste away the taxes you pay to save themselves. Here are all my charts I document from Instagram

Set up your C++ IDE environment using Ubuntu Linux for automated trading

How to set up your C++ IDE environment using Ubuntu Linux for automated trading

Here are my latest updates that as I get more serious on this Futures algo trading done in C++. Some of these will replace some of my current Python ones I have submitted to be part of this strategy. As you can imagine, everything is going to be great around here once we get underway for serious trading strategy development.

The history of this choice from any other programming language for high speed automated trading. This will start out at a low frequency but hopefully be an easier transition to higher frequency….

Not only that, I have done some source code walkthroughs on my initial library for futures trading. I will even add more for my eventual options strategy.  This is all part of my Phase 2 for Algo Trading course where you can get details here.
I even start teaching this Tues Jul 12 at 8 PM EDT

Remember that the combination of Python and C++ are the standard used by high end HFT shops!

 

Setting what could be my preferred Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Ubuntu Linux. This IDE is CodeLite which is open source and free!

To install Codelite onto Ubuntu, follow these instructions:

Here is how you could typically build out a trading library for algos based on the asset class your are interested. I am starting out with Futures but eventually add options and FX in separate ones.

Walkthrough of first trading algo in Cpp for future library use

 

As for the complicated integration of Graphical User Interface and database:

  1. I plan to use wxWidgets as explained in my various 60+ C++ videos in my ‘Wonderful World of C++ for trading ” playlist from Youtube channel at youtube.com/quantlabs
  2. I also plan to integrate MongoDB as well as the preferred NOSQL database choice. You can see some demos in this playlist but understand my ultimate choice is for Redis but I am running into technical challenges with integrating the hiredis C client library into a Codelite C++ project.

 

Note that the above points are nowhere final as I still need to build out a stable IDE environment to integrate all of the above. I would just focus on the getting your C++ libraries together for algos for now.   This is my intention until I get all the basic algos working for FX, options, future, and the artibtrage for equities implemented. Lots of work ahead I know.

Permanent Arbitrage Pair Trading Source Code Demo Removal


As you were the first to be notified of July 12 being my last day of the equity pair training/arbitrage strategy, I have notified all my other social media outlets. I’m not sure of how much of an impact this will have on people, but I’m trying to get those that are sitting on the fence to take action now.

See my removal notice with countdown here

 

Here are those usual details:

 

CRITICAL! I am putting a hard set date together of July 12 for removing all source code demos and references to my Phase 1 equity trading/arbitrage. I am currently teaching this up until July 5. For Tuesday night, I will be hosting my technical analysis step. As said, this is a one-time deal only and will be only available to my current and new Quant Elite members.

Is Julia efficient for automated trading ?

Is Julia efficient for automated trading ?

I agree with this statement from a newsletter subscriber:

I don’t really know if we should give up on Julia or not…
Personally, I don’t … Julia is very efficient when using for loops (compared to raw Python).
Here is my last project:
It’s a Julia TA-Lib http://ta-lib.org/ wrapper.
That was a very interesting experience to see how simple it’s to wrap a C library like TA-Lib using Julia!
Caution… this is a work in progress… so it may still be quite buggy!
Next step… what about an event oriented backtester in Julia?

 

All came from this email I sent:

Should we give up on Julia programming now

Another hyped programming language that went nowhere
