Introducing CFD analysis with automation from Oanda broker

This is a big deal to showcase a new asset class  in the Analytics service (see below to join if interested). This just adds value to this service. It also gives you true edge where capital is going into virtually unknown areas as the markets turn against you. I am pretty amazed with this.

Anyhow, if you don’t know what CFDs are but they pretty well the poor man’s way to get into commodities, futures/options, fixed income, and stock indices. Yo can find a definition here

Do realize that this CFD market data is from Oanda. I still dislike them but I have 2 reasons why I stick with them:

  1. They are the only USA accessible forex broker who support Python. I get half of my user who are based out of the USA so I cannot ignore them.
  2. I do believe Oanda is more popular than a broker like Interactive Brokers according to Alexa.com
  3. You need to be careful of Oanda due to the market making division but I am not worried since my system does not depends on stop losses.

Answers for DIY trading with automation algo and Python programming technology

Answers for DIY trading with automation algo and Python programming technology

From a recent group head I presented to a few years ago:

Hi Bryan,

You probably won’t remember me, but we met briefly when you did a presentation for the xx.  I believe the Chapter Head, xx, invited you to speak with our group

Myself and a few others from a systems development meetup are on the path to wanting to automate some trading strategies.  I’m/we’re looking at 2 options –

1) do it yourself / DIY

2) pay someone to fully implement system ideas

On point # 1), I was looking at python and an Ibridgepy for Interactive Brokers as a possible solution.  Just wondering if you could provide some advice on software / languages and setups to use for automating stock (and possibly option) trading.  Ideally it would be nice to choose from a universe of tickers and rank the signals generated by relative strength or some other ranking to give priority to certain stocks to trade over others.  I’m personally more interested in swing trading and trend following versus high frequency or intraday stuff (xxx that I’ve copied on this email is more interested in intraday).  An guidance or direction on platforms/software/technology to focus on, would be much appreciated.

On point # 2), what type of budget pricing should I expect for someone qualified to implement a fairly simple system from soup to nuts (based on rules any way), and, can you recommend some people I could talk to that specialize in this?

I noticed your site offers a premium subscription… does your subscription have archives and ongoing content for the DIYer?  What is your subscription cost/and options?

Thank you.

Where are you located, and, would you be interested in coming out to speak at a local trading meeting Meetings average anywhere from 10-25 people, on average, depending on the level of interest from members.

Regards,

Goldman Sachs adopts automation: Masters of universe threatened

Goldman Sachs embraces automation: Masters of universe threatened

A few days ago, I posted an article from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on how Goldman Sachs is now going fully digital with their automated trading. For those that don’t know, their CEO claimed that the bank is now a technology company while no longer being an investment bank. The old ways of Trading are dying very quickly, if you are not able to keep up with fast-paced technology you most likely will wither away like other conservative banks who are quickly adjusting to the new reality.

Here’s that article

In case you missed yesterday:

Yes this Quant Analytics is coming so much sooner than you know. Once running, all bundled courses will be removed permanently from the ELITE . As explained in the video above, these courses have been evaluated by our marketing expert who feels they may be worth thousands each alone. Who knows? But there is already an intro to a Day Trading Guru charging well over $50k/year for his services. What should that tell you? There is a market willing to pay for these premium services. Guess what this new Analytics service will target? I posted this message on my Facebook earlier:

If you think people cannot charge $50k as a mediocre ‘day trading guru’, you live in another world. When you compare what I am about to unleash, I should be able to charge 4-5x that to 7-9 digit folks who run trading firms. These are the same people who want to automate their successful trading operations. Take heed while you can to take advantage of my offerings NOW! Each one will be spun out where my marketing genius claims I should be charging thousands for each one. That day is coming very soon. Take it or leave it, I will be going premium as I hinted a while back.http://quantlabs.net/mkt/quant-elite/


IT IS NOW OR NEVER!

In summary, if you have the technical skills, you may want to take advantage of what this service has to offer.

 

Either way, if you are a newbie a programming, you may still want to check this out here

What is the latest status of learning Python R for algo trading

Somebody who has been on my newsletter list has come back to ask about this new transition from going from Quant Elite membership to my new Analytics service.

I made a video response here

I said in the video that I’m building out the new analytic service as we speak. I am hoping to move ahead with the new analytics service much sooner than later.

Here is what I mean

As said, my Quant Elite will be closing and I’m already seeing much content being stripped away as I move everybody into the new analytics service.

Thanks Bryan

Automation replaces you human trader as Wall St lose jobs

Automation replaces you human trader as Wall St lose jobs

Here is an article that proves what I said for years:

Dear mid-level Wall Street worker, your computer is coming to get you.

To read the entire article, go to http://bloom.bg/1VHjLeo

If you are human trader, you will be obsolete sooner than you know. Pink sheets have been flying at the financial institutions for year to get rid of dead weight being replaced my automation. Boo hoo. Cry me F*C*ING river you poor whiny victim.

Next up: If you are learning from some ‘trading guru’, all their strategies and what they teach are junk. Automation will destroy what they teach. If you are not using multiple strategies in scale, you will be financially ruined before you get started. So don’t try! If you argue it, you will be ruined or at best you will see your performance suffer in the long run. It is a different era and you better join the automation movement.

is OCaml fit for algo trading with automation?

is OCaml fit for algo trading with automation?

After getting some emails about algo traders using OCaml for number crunching in their high speed trading operations. I thought I would put together some links below for my own research. In my own words, I feel I will stick to my C++ plans as that is pretty well standard. It also plays nice with Python so I will stay committed to it for now
