R source code for Oil CL Spread Percentage Change Chart

This generous contribution came from the NYC Conatact so thanks him big time! Chart is at end

 

R packages I use: utils, stats, methods, graphics, grDevices, datasets

R code for the new chart

CL1 = read.csv(‘http://www.quandl.com/api/v1/datasets/CHRIS/CME_CL1.csv?&auth_token=EFqKm1HWP2FJZNzJywN9&trim_start=1983-03-31&trim_end=2014-04-03&sort_order=desc’, colClasses=c(‘Date’=’Date’))

CL2 = read.csv(‘http://www.quandl.com/api/v1/datasets/CHRIS/CME_CL2.csv?&auth_token=EFqKm1HWP2FJZNzJywN9&trim_start=1983-03-30&trim_end=2014-04-03&sort_order=desc’, colClasses=c(‘Date’=’Date’))
CL_Spread <- CL1[“Date”]

CL_Spread[“Settle”] = CL1[“Settle”] – CL2[“Settle”]

N <- nrow(CL_Spread)
for (i in 1:N)
CL_Spread[i, “PrecentChange”] = round(((CL_Spread[i,”Settle”] – CL_Spread[i+1,”Settle”])/CL_Spread[i+1,”Settle”])*100,digits=2)

rdate <- as.Date(CL_Spread$Date,”%yy-%m-%d”)
fix(rdate)
plot(CL_Spread$PrecentChange~rdate, type=”l”,col=”blue”,axes=F)
box()
axis(1,rdate,format(rdate,”%m-%y”))

What is your favorite trading platform? What would you change or add to your current trading platform?

What is your favorite trading platform? What would you change or add to your current trading platform? I could not find a platform which had all the tools that I wanted. For example portfiolo level optimization. The ability to program advance trade management and money management concepts like dynamic rebalancing, I also needed walk forward testing. In addition I also do alot with equity curve feedback in my trading systems. I needed a tool I could use to develop the trading systems which I was planing on management money with so I hired a few programmers to help me and wrote my own. It’s a very expensive process so I also sell it to offset the costs. I started in 2002 and did not have my first release until 2005 and we just released a new version in January.

Is it good bye Java? Apache Foundation may give up on Oracle’s new ‘proprietary’ changes in Java 7?

Is it good bye Java? Apache Foundation may give up on Oracle’s new ‘proprietary’ changes in Java 7?
This is getting interesting as I am already putting more emphasis on .NET languages like C# or open C++. Anyhow, here are some quotes from an influential posting:

The non-profit ASF intends to fight back by using its seat in the Java Community Process (JCP) Executive Committee to vote against the approval of Java 7, the next major version of the programming language. The ASF is calling for other concerned Java stakeholders to cast a similar nay vote to protest Oracle’s breach of protocol. If the majority sides with the ASF, it would serve as a vote of no confidence in the JCP and Oracle’s stewardship of the Java language.
The conflict over Harmony predates Oracle’s acquisition of Sun. Oracle has continued to support Sun’s position on the matter following the acquisition despite having previously spoken in favor of Apache’s position in the past. The heart of the issue is the licensing terms under which the Java Technology Compatibility Kit (TCK) is distributed. The TCK—which is needed to demonstrate a Java implementation’s conformance with the language standard—is encumbered by field-of-use restrictions that are fundamentally hostile to open source Java implementors.
The TCK licensing restrictions violate the terms of a JCP governance policy, which specifies that all compatibility tests would be made available under terms that are conducive to third-party, open source Java implementations. It is believed that Oracle’s disregard for this policy constitutes a potentially actionable breach of contract. The ASF is threatening to abandon the JCP if Oracle doesn’t resolve the issue by supplying the TCK under suitable terms. If the ASF were to walk away from the JCP under such conditions, it would end the pretense that Java is an open language.
“Oracle is violating their contractual obligation as set forth under the rules of the JCP by only offering a TCK license that imposes additional terms and conditions that are not compatible with open source or Free software licenses,” the ASF declared in a statement. “The ASF will terminate its relationship with the JCP if our rights as implementers of Java specifications are not upheld by the JCP Executive Committee to the limits of the EC’s ability. The lack of active, strong and clear enforcement of those rights implies that the JSPA agreements are worthless, confirming that JCP specifications are nothing more than proprietary documentation.”

At the end, it lists that there are already forked versions of Open Office and MYSQL in the works. The MYSQL version is called MariaDB.
