Intro to C++ Programming – For beginners to help machine learning

 

This programming language is the fastest out there which is used widely in the banking and algo trading fields. It is also quite popular in speeding up machine learning techniques.

Java is not the way for algo trading and machine learning

if you are into Java and machine learning, you might want to hear what Saraj Raval who does a popular Youtube channel, he says that Java is an old language which he dislikes. He also compares it to when you learn first programming languages in your computer science class. I sort of agree considering where we are in the industry.

As an example, you could look the Alexa.com stats for Dkkascopy which has dropped from 30k to 45k roughly over the last year. Why the drop? I believe it is because the only API available for DUkascopy is Java with JForex. They may want to add Python at some point.

Speaking of Dukascopy and Python, you could check out Oanda’s ranking which is at 3.9k roughly since they added Python a few years ago. Also, they are much more popular than Interactive Brokers (12.2 ranking on Alexa) which has an added wonky Python support but still have C++ support as well.

C++ is the future vs Java for sure when it comes to machine learning and algo trading.

Coding Deep Learning for Beginners while using Oanda data

It is rare for me to get excited about resources to learn machine learning where math is not your top skill. All forex and CFD  instruments using Oanda data is listed below. This series seems to include an assumption you know nothing about the math behind these concepts. You may want to check out this article if you are ever interested in learning about deep learning.

All forex and CFD  instruments using Oanda data

 

I have included the list in a text file.

Remember I struggle using between Interactive Brokers Oanda for forex. I could use Interactive Brokers to execute order using Oanda data which is out of synch. The other idea I am think is using Oanda data and executing the trades. Just remember my views of Oanda are not positive as they have market making. I want to get that Oanda account to $2000 so I can move over to Interactive Brokers for their data access. I just want to show you build everything from nothing.

Hardest part of trading is optimal market entries

Hardest part of trading is optimal mark entry. I am tweakting my automated watchlist so I made video on this. This videos shown in the video below is part of Python Infrastructure Building Block course explained below. It is part of my Quant Elite membership which is also below. I am not going to showcase videos like this anymore but I want to stress the difficulty of find these optimal market indicators.

C++ for beginners Cheat Sheet learning

 

Here is a cheat sheet for newbies who want to start C++ learning. This is very rudimentary but I am sure there are better ones out there.

Where this goes

If you look at this older language, it will help if you plan to implement with Google Tensor Flow for machine learning or artificial learning. I also find some institutions will use this to start experimenting with crypto currency asset classes including Bitcoin.

For Joomla beginners, ensure you have PHP 5.2x for potentially bad extensions

For Joomla beginners, ensure you have PHP 5.2x for potentially bad extensions

I have had some what I thought were bad exceptions doing strange things to my Joomla site. One symptom was the site would disappear and everything would go blank. This could be you do not have the latest PHP. Most extensions seem to require PHP 5.2 so ensure you have it. You can get that by checking in Joomla’s admin back end by choosing Help->System Info. I just wish Joomla Extension developers would highlight this requirement better and bolder. Many Joomla beginners would never think of this.
