Question from someone named Justin:
Hey Brian, if you get some time to respond to this email, it would be greatly appreciated.
I just have a couple questions about automated trading that i am a little confused about and i really just can not find much information online about it as well.
Say you just want to be able to create your own trading interfaces ie, charts, stock scanners, and so. Instead of using the broker that you are trading through,
What type of hardware would you need to invest in, maybe co-locating servers, getting vps or dedicated servers, running servers out of your home? Or
So is this absolutely necessary? Do you have to have a broker to trade through, or is there any way that you can trade on your own platform directly with the markets?
3. Broker 2?
And if going through a broker is the only way, what is the difference between a broker that a prop firm uses or a hedge fund or HFT firm uses that a wealthy individual wanting to trade automated as a business. I get that you could use IB, or Lightspeed, or some other type of known broker to trade, but what are the big boys doing, with who, and how?
Also, I will be spinning off all my courses for my Quant Elite members in the next few days. I promised to hold off for a month when I first announced it so we’re now at the point. If you want to reap the benefits of these courses, join my Quant Elite membership right now!
The three individual courses will be priced at $497 each after this process takes place.
I’m also putting the membership into its last days of existence before I start rolling all current members into the new Quant Analytics service.
