No discounts for Quant Elite but Analytics may have introductory pricing

No discounting for Quant Elite but Analytics may have introductory pricing

I got a common set of questions which I keep repeating. This is from one person out of Brazil who asked the following:

Let’s give you some insight, I’m a engineer, used to work with car production, and now unemployed for about 1 year and a half. Most of the past year I spent learning about trading, but the results were not so good.

But it was very surprising to see that the course isn’t been offered anymore and that you will close the ELITE membership. I have some questions, that I would like to ask:

I answered these specifically in my Frequently Asked Questions section

Another great testimonial from a new quant members over the last few days. Seriously Shall I say anymore?


I just posted this in 2013 on Facebook profile:

Trading is my fuK*Cing business…and business is good!

You realize that those of us to took you at your word feel a bit silly.
For those unable or unwilling to ‘budget for your site’ they had almost 60 days to do that.
To give them another week without penalty is just them whining. You are right to extend your deadline… but don’t give them 50% discount… give them only 40%… somehow they should be paying more… just my 2 cents.
….

BTW… know that there are those of us out here that think what you are doing is awesome

Check out this full testimonial here

NOTE: There are 2 days left to get your questions in!

QUESTION DEADLINE IS JAN 19TH!! Email them to me when you join and ready!

I have selected Saturday, January 21 at 9 AM EDT. . This is the same time as New York City.

I would also like to mention I am thinking of doing a variety of ‘make up classes’ to make up for the missed tutorials in my Future/Options strategy. This includes critical topics of:
Optimal Hedging
Options on futures
Options examples continue
Additional Options concepts with comparison to Futures    
Option pricing more examples    
Call put parity
Options trades

Coding samples will be offered in a combination of Python and C++.

This will need to start early 9AM EDT.  Let me know what works for you.

This will be available to all my Quant ELITE members.

Not a member, join now!

Thanks Bryan

P.S. If you are interested in this mini workshop, I would strongly recommend to jump on this AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to properly prepare for these topics if you are unfamiliar with them.
P.P.S. Looks like it will be for Sat Jan 21 at 9PM EDT! Details coming soon.

Discounts? Free stuff? Source code of trading models for HFT potential

Lots of people take full advantage of it. Some are regulars I now know and they also seem to enjoy the services I offer. That makes me feel good about what I do. To be honest, these highly valued people are the ones who allow me to continue my research in:

1. Finding the best and most advanced technologies to trade with various forecasting models

2. Trading algorithms for most optimal profitable trading strategies, models, and algorithms. 

Without my Members, I don’t think I would have come so far. Many of them range from high net worth individuals, investors, capital providers, indie traders . software developers, financial services and banking executives, and the like.

>> Go here if you are interested in joining <<

I have my benefits page here: http://quantlabs.net/mkt/quant-elite/

As a result, I need to thank each and every one of them to make this possible. 

As you can imagine.  I get quite a few number of new members each week who pay full rates . If I was to apply a discount to anyone, it would NOT be fair to those paying at a full rate. As a result, I need to hold steady on this current rate. Here is a fair comment stated by Yair Altman for his Interactive Brokers-Matlab script:

I expect it will be difficult to find a free working application for active trading. Matlab is not free; IB is not free; trading is not free; people make huge investments and profits in algorithmic trading black-boxes – so why should the IB-Matlab trading platform be free???

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/04/note-to-all-those-who-expect-what-i-do-for-free-yair-altman-hit-it-on-the-head-why-you-should-pay-in-trading/

I completely agree with this so hopefully you can appreciate that.

I don’t think I will be increasing rates anything crazy in coming weeks but as the end to end trading platform starts to prove itself, there are few options I am looking at:

1. As most people cannot afford Matlab or other technologies I use, I was thinking of providing complete source code to any models or strategies that can be used in an open source trading platform like Tradelink. Of course, this code could be generated from something like Matlab or Simulink. I could always sell these solutions as a single sale item. 

2. Providing single online courses with some modules to help you get up and running in which future trading models could be beneficial for you. Please check out my current courses here:

Do note that I need to put a severe limit on these products if they prove to be valuable. I don’t need the world to know about it. It also maintains your trading edge as well. 

People have asked for coding samples:
I have my GitHub repositories with many recent sample projects here: https://github.com/quantlabs

Note that if I already have some open source projects on SourceForge.net

My 3 FREE open source projects with Matlab coder to Dot Net C#, C, C++, open source R Hadoop for big data analysis

Let me know what you think of these options.

Thanks Bryan

PS. Feedback does really help give a sense of direction on future product offerings.

So what are these requirements of researcher to get MASSIVE discounts on Matlab and its computational finance toolboxes?

So what are these requirements of researcher to get MASSIVE discounts on Matlab and its computational finance toolboxes?

Someone sent me this:

Well, did some research on their website and found that even for “researcher” (which is not clear how to qualify) each module costs $200.
I want all these modules:

 

Computational Finance

Financial Toolbox

Econometrics Toolbox

Datafeed Toolbox

Database Toolbox

Spreadsheet Link EX (for Microsoft Excel)

Financial Instruments Toolbox

Trading Toolbox

Pasted from <http://www.mathworks.com/products/index.html?s_tid=brdcrb>

 

But the questions, what are the details to qualify as a researcher for these steep discounts?

 

Updated answer:

This is a pretty clear:
researcher at a university

Why you will never see discounts to our quant membership on learning trading technology, algo, strategy, and model development?

Why you will never see discounts to our quant membership on learning trading technology, algo, strategy, and model development?

successful indie traders!! I get comments or queries like this below all time:
Hi,

Can I get access to your site for the first month for $25 (4 kids!)?
I’m pretty new to the quant-level work … think your stuff might be temporarily way over my head. Not sure what value it’s going to bring me or if it will just be complete overload, but I would like to start into it with earnest.
If I can get into it, I think the $75 monthly fee or whatever it was would be very much worth it and I could justify it.
Let me know? Thanks,This is pretty easy to explain. View this video at Youtube to see how our dirt cheap rate for our grand tour of the membership:

First of all, we never put a gun to your head to join. Neither do we do hard sells for people to join. Our membership is growing at a nice pace. Once we get past our model R code walkthroughs, the membership will start learning about our selected and potential open source trading platform in Linux and C++. We will also demo the clustering and parallelization capabilities using open source. Also, we will include a a complete evaluation on what model forecasting techniques will show the most profitable potential. If all these items are still not enough to join for the highly affordable rate, well maybe you should either get out of trading or just walk into a casino. You will never make money in trading if you are not willing to make a little investment. Pretty simple I would think. We are in the midst of getting our public and private membership webinars going as well in order to build a community.  As you can tell, we don’t discount but will be increasing the rates exponentially as we will start focusing on the higher end market that are willing to pay $100 per month for our service. Don’t believe me this exists? Please visit this survey to see the results. http://quantlabs.net/surveys/

So consider the member ship already discounted quite heavily as It moves forward, the rate will be going up. Once you join, you will continue paying that rate forever as long as you remain a member. Plus, our payment administrator platform does not allow us to discount anyhow. We can only offer coupons but there may be a rare promotional offer during our public webinars so you will need to be an active participant to know about those. Find info like that by jolning our Meetup group. http://www.meetup.com/quant-finance/

Hope this helps
