Cortical and Subcortical Computing for Trading Meetup

Cortical and Subcortical Computing for Trading Meetup
8 – 9pm.

Discussion on how to use artificial intelligence in trading.

Dr. Paul Cottrell is a researcher in chaos theory and has interests in modeling financial markets. Some have considered him a polymath of sorts. Born in Detroit, Michigan he has extensive professional experience in engineering and design. He currently is a proprietary trader specializing in currency and energy markets. He also dedicates his time at a large non-profit in New York City.
In addition to modeling financial markets, his research interests are in developmental economics, behavioral finance, complexity science, energy industry, risk management, and artificial intelligence. He holds a Ph.D. specializing in finance from Walden University. He has also earned a M.B.A and B.Sc. from Wayne State University. He lives in New York, NY.

Download Quantum financial computing research paper

Survey for automated trading is it Java C on Linux or DotNET on Windows

I have made a very important survey to figure out what people are using in terms of software engineering with automated trading. I have fumbled with Linux using both C and Java programming language but everything does come down to your broker choice. In my case of Interactive Brokers, I was forced to use Windows with .Net and C-sharp for easier Interactive Brokers API management. I have made a video to further explain this so please watch it here.

Quantum financial computing research paper

 

This seems to be a first. It seems that there is a research paper on a financial application in the world of quantum computing. As predicted, this is where the next generation of high-speed trading will go.

Demo of self contained automated trading system

I have referred to this as the  KAREN SUPER STRATEGY

 

As you know I’ve put out a complete end to end video demo in algorithmic-based automated trading system. One YouTube comments said this:

 

“One Word: as a beginner… UNBELIEVEABLE!!!! Waow, thats a huge system… I hope i will learn all you know in future  Big Thank you, that you share this with us, and that you try to hold it easy! THANKS A LOT!”

 

Please see the video I am describing here

 

This is one of my biggest milestones yet as this includes full management of all positions that you open with an Interactive Brokers TWS session.

 

In fact you can download all the source code here

 

This is part of my Quant Elite membership

Thanks Bryan

 

PS.

 

I am doing a one time only question and answer. On this demonstration on Tuesday, October 13.

I personally think, if you take your trading idea research seriously, Matlab should be seriously consider for productivity and community.

I just introduced a FREE automated trading video series for those who may be interested in this topic.  Check it out here.

Pro and cons on of Paul Wilmot views of math and computing in the world of quant finance

Pro and cons on of Paul Wilmot views of math and computing in the world of quant finance

I am confused on the messaging of these videos. Paul Wilmot pretty well launched the world ofquant from my point of view. His books are like bibles.Lots of math and the like. He then launches his CQF which has become a huge money machine with C++ topics.

When you watch these videos? He says computers have no place in finanace? WTF? You just put out a huge series of books which need computing power to get the job done. I understand his point that people need to understand the logic of the math. I get that which is crucial but the computing thing I am confused about.
Maybe its my bad spelling, non PHD, or just plain ignorance. But seriously? WTF?

P.S. I would love to use the logo of CQF but I don’t need any more lawyers letters thank you. Fitch and their ilk can stick it.

P.P.S. Man this guy contradicts himself but gladly takes your money off his site. In other words, he bites the hand that feeds him. It kind of reminds me where Carlos Escobar (world’s largest cocaine dealer in history) whines about that there is a drug problem and it needs to stop! I hope he is joking what is said in this video below!

 

Update:

[12:36:11 PM] Bryan Downing: from dominic connor on this posting

ttps://www.quantnet.com/threads/paul-wilmott-most-quants-are-stupid.4117/
[12:36:13 PM] Bryan Downing:  The idea was meant as a joke, even now to most ‘real’ people the idea that you can make a good living buying and selling standard deviations is really not obvious. Many of us here will go to even less intuitive areas of finance.

Don’t be fooled by those expensive servers for HPC HFT computing from Oracle Sparc or Cray Youtube video shows its the programming

Don’t be fooled by those expensive servers for high performance HFT computing from Oracle Sparc, Cray, etc. This Youtube video show its the programming

I just sent this to someone:
It seems you are wanting to spend money on some high end servers. My experience with CUDA is it can only be used for backtesting, not real time analysis trading. Also, these expensive servers are just that, expensive. The performance techniques  all done in your programming:

You will only get this performance in C++ or .NET, Java is quite limited to achieve this.
I use Matlab Simulink to generate code either into C, C++, or FPGA ready if need be. You don’t need to blow your budget on expensive hardware like you listed.
I am learning this from one of the best quants in London UK. I talk with him for many hours per week. He does not hold back on what he knows.
Hope this helps
