Monero’s leader: “Financial privacy is a basic human right”

Each time I read about this founder of anonymous privacy crypto Monero, I respect him more and more. Here are some quick takes of a recent interview he did:

Riccardo Spagni, the lead maintainer of privacy coin Monero, spoke about why privacy matters to him and why it should matter to everyone 

  • Spagni argues that financial privacy is not desired only by bad actors, but should be desirable to people who value their own personal data
  • Spagni says that the problem with many privacy enhancing systems is optionality, as it turns out that many people don’t opt in to use the privacy layer
  • Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”

Python Algo Trading Infrastructure with Crypto Currency course wrapping up

Last night was the bonus round of questions folks had for me on this LIVE Python course. It seems I covered the entire Python scripting architecture of my winning crypto currency trading bot. I also covered many details of the actual technical indicators being used and why. Do also realize I cover some actual secret sauce. I will say, this makes the course even more valuable on the last time I wrote about it. As a result, I am unsure of the actual value I will charge going in to early next week. That will be the last LIVE class I will do for this course.

You can more details on this course here

Get on this before this price goes up … potentially a lot !

It is currently $250 US.

Thanks Bryan

Working demo of basic C++ and Python socket programming

Working demo of basic Cpp and Python socket programming

I  just made a video to showcase low-level socket programming. After going through various complicated libraries including Kafka with other ones which were written in stranger languages like Scala or Erlang. I really don’t want to go down that path because of complexities versus simple ways. As a result, I looked into lower level simple socket programming for inter-process communications between C++ and Python. The simple results are in the video mentioned below.

Here’s that video to demonstrate this

You will be able to compare the few amount of lines of code to accomplish versus the heavy weighted libraries mentioned above. I even came up with a simple architecture to handle messages that have not been guaranteed for delivery. I’m hopefully thinking everything should work OK. If you got any suggestions to improve, let me know.

This brings me to the next fact of my promotion which will end on Sunday New Year’s Day. Details are below.

Thanks Bryan

P.S. I actually opened up the email thingy to invite you to an introductory promo starting today.

  • I will be switching over from our Quant ELITE service to the newer Quant Analytics in the next few months. Enjoy the last of coding demos and video walkthroughs learning R, math, Matlab, .NET, serious secretive research papers from biggest the banks and hedge funds, building out new open source trading, etc etc. I could go on with this but I it will also permanently disappear in coming months.
  • We are currently doing a futures/options course taking us up to the the first week of February. This will turn into a new separate course in coming months as well.
  • This will be replaced with an entirely different service. It will involve actual live trading analysis for all major asset classes in the this global market. It will cover all forex, pair trading/arbitrage stock trading, and options with futures. Exciting times ahead
  • I have unbundled the Infrastructure Building Blocks and Interactive Brokers API workshop. These are not  yet for sale individually but will be marketed at $497 each. Moving forwards, both will be used as an introduction to those who want to to build out the same high speed system I am constructing now. That is an extra $1000 value as of today. If you take this, I will  give you access to both for 30 days.
  • Not only that, I am doing a 2 for 1 deal for those interested in this new service. As this new service advances, I will be raising the cost on a monthly basis. This time next year, this Analytics service could be about $3k to join on an annual basis. If it works out, I do believe it will be worth a lot more.  I will only be making myself available personally for my members through this service with live private event Mondays nights Eastern Standard time.

As said, if this works out, You can expect it to go up over the next few months after introduction. I will be holding this promotion until Jan 1, 2017.

URGENT! New miletstone for basic HFT like trading software architecture

URGENT! New miletstone for basic HFT like trading software architecture

Today is a new milestone for myself. Hooray for that. Over the last 24 hours I have completed my full circle of a potential road map or blueprint to a simplified high-frequency trading system architecture.

Let me explain:

Overview of Intel TBB Redis NOSQL C++ for potential HFT

 

If you watch this video, you’ll completely understand why I switched over to Intel TBB for best concurrency or multithreading.

 

Watch that here

Quick demo of Intel TBB C++ Flow Graph Designer code generation on Windows

 

For any of those long time viewers of mine over the years, you will remember my original vision of using Matlab’s Simulink for code generation from a visual representation of a trading idea. Well that came to a sudden stop due to the fact that many could not afford the $40 – $50,000 Simulink configuration option needed to complete it. Well I may have a better solution for you using open source Intel TBB. There is this tool which is a graphic designer that will code generate to C++ no different than Simulink. Personally this tool is better but only runs on Windows. Oh shock the horror! Well I had to put on my big boy pants to swallow my pride so I made this video.

 

Check out this video

 

In coming days, I will be releasing the last video to complete the FULL circle with Redis NO SQL. You know, that database that is probably the world’s fastest that has been clocked at doing 1.2 million transactions per second through a cluster. LOL yeah that database which is open source in C.

 

Well guess what? I’ve got TBB and Redis working together. Happy joy joy.

 

So if you were already on my Daily Digest free email service, you would already know about this video. Here is where it gets interesting. I will only drop this mild hint:

ou may want to join my Quant Elite membership right away otherwise you’ll miss out on what I have planned to announce in coming days.

 

This will be a very short-lived window of opportunity and is only available to all my hard-core followers which I always thank.

 

Tehee hee.

 

Bryan

 

P.S. You know this last video I have mentioned, it just got me a sudden job offer at a Dubai hedge fund. It is from one of the leading innovative forex traders on the planet. This all happened within 5 minutes of my video popping up on YouTube! Yes… it is that valuable!! I recommend you stay tuned to your email inbox in coming days. I would also follow my advice I just mentioned above.

Basic HFT system working with real time charting next. Meet real quants online!!

I have accomplished some new milestones so I put this quick video together on the next steps:

Basic HFT system working with real time charting next. Meet real quants online!!

This  video and  link is from 3 years ago! My how things have changed vs where we are now!

Also, I got talking to a recent CQF grad who offered some great resources if you are new to quant or are a student:

This is one of the best resources online I have ever seen for quant studying with C++: A student of the CQF!

I am in the midst of ‘closing off the loop’ where my custom trading platform will have features including:
1.    Real time market tick data capture and analytics with threading
2.    Visualization

As this  designing is coming to a near completion. All in all, I cannot stress you need to join this Membership as you will not find anything else out there as affordable.

Yesterday I got a question from a very seasoned trader out of New York City. He asked if my current “Independent Trading Business Algo course series” would be useful for his operation. I said of course due to the fact that we have a small audience with live participation on building out a basic Algo trading system.

 

Check out his query here

 

As of Tuesday April 26, which is our chosen LIVE teaching day, I will be presenting 4 Python visualization packages that could be used for live trading and analysis. I’ll also include my latest selection of open source Qt C++ application for a fairly sophisticated charting software package.

 

This is my second last live presentation on my Infrastructure Trading Building Blocks phase of this course.
