interactive brokers eliminate $10k requirement

 

Free gift from interactive brokers as they eliminate $10k requirement but here are some workarounds on the limit

You may need to use another data providers like IQFeed. I have mentioned numerous times you can find on this site or my Youtube channel.

Someone else responded to my posting of:

Will retail trading platforms like Tradestation Metatrader and Ninja Trader actually make you lose money?

They said:

My conclusion, control your destiny by owning your own technology and infrastructure. 

But as I a trader I need to have a broker, so there are things I can’t control, am I right ?

—> Eliminate brokers if possible

I try to control everything, but how can I know how exchanges work in the inside ? I can’t see Euronext’s server to understand what they send to feed providers. How can I do that ?

–> To get direct market acccess, you need a large trading account of probably $1M trading account. If not, they may not or even the brokers who have direct access will not pick up your phone call

 

I am frustrated because I have the feeling I can’t find the truth about what’s happening to the market.

–> Markets are totally random. Real profitable PRO traders in smart money prey on beginning traders of dumb money. They trade like sheep so they get slaughtered.  These people go to some stock market club or read some technical analysis magazine offering nothing unusual where thousands of others are doing the same thing. They use the same retail trading software and use the same strategies. Other beginners think they can use historical data to forecast with. All successful pro traders who profit in the millions + don’t believe in past data. They only use it to test a trading theory. They also use quant methods to forecast. In short, you may need to use that rocket science to trend the market. That is all.

Don’t worry about your English. My typing is much worst! My community helps each other or at least I deliver as I find stuff. I am mostly technical but you need to apply the math to be profitable honestly. You will honestly most find people who sell education really do not deliver any personal communucation or just yell at you for not watching videos (think Tim Sykes). We don’t work that way.
P.S. I have tonnes of videos online (youtube.com/quantlabs) or hundreds of private content on my memberships. You decide. Cool?

Presentation material:

Manuscript of Intended Presentation:

 

 

The Use of     a<-a[-(i)]   can lead to NA’s

 

Argument is that a<-a[-is.na(a)] would then suffice to clean this up, but what are the costs if, say, a is a resultant vector from a sorting algorithm which recursively shortens the vector?

 

The reality is that removing individual elements by referring to their index can be difficult on data integrity after the remaining indices are then restructured.  Perhaps this is dependent on the cluster or R environment you are loading from.      The reality is that NA’s are a commonly recurring problem in R.

 

Since there are many precompiled functions in R, it seems logical to make use of them.  What isn’t so obvious is the usage of them for non-vector arguments.   For example,  typically rm() is a function which can be used to clean up a directory prior to inputting or after outputting a file from a program.   However, rm() can also be used for the same purposes as a<-a[-(i)], and therefore bypassing the need to subsequently call a<-a[-is.na()] afterwards,  and the risk for loss of data integrity.

 

 

More along the lines of data integrity is the loss of precision in arithmetic operations as you get close to your assigned machine precision.  What then happens is dependent on, again, your own system and which version of R you are utilizing.  Apparently 3.0.0  seems to be set up now with the idea of allowing data to just drop digits as precision is maxed out.     To quote the current developers blog:

The following function is due for release:

 

digitloss=c(“allow”, “warn”, “forbid” )

 

 

C developers can deal with this by implementing their own arithmetic procedures, keeping in mind the underlying algorithm of each.   e.g.   Division can be viewed as the inverse operation of multiplication, which in turn can be viewed as a “convolution” of two floating point integers.

 

So what does this mean..  ?     Maybe for the purposes of speeding up your system and avoiding the abovementioned data loss, converting your division problem to a multiplication by the inverse of your divisor, and then in order to convert your base 10 number to decimal formatting-  either calling strtoll()  or incorporating your own division algorithm.

 

At this point you would be ready to perform the “convolution” portion of  your multiplication formula.   Warning:   convolve() in R (as in C’s numerical recipes) incorporates  the Fourier transform, adding a full      N*logN     to your computational complexity.   So it may be best to code up your own if you think time is of importance.

 

 

 

 

 

Examples of code  demonstrating the above topics can be available upon request.  Thanks for your attendance.
