Oanda vs LMAX forex broker battle with weekly meetup for Quant Elite members

Oanda vs LMAX forex broker battle with weekly meetup for Quant Elite members
From a Quant Elite member
1 About forex brokers,  lmax seems to have a better business model than oanda.
so, have your looked lmax before, (e.g. type of progamin languages I need to learn first for lmax?)

–> LMAX is better with wider selecton of currencies but you need 10K of your base country. Oanda is nothing so that it who I go with just for this small amount to fund an account. The priority is to find successful algos with minimal loss through Oanda hopefully.

2  Usually when will you have online meetup or online training?  I’m not very clear.

–> We do it every Monday at 8 PM EDT. Just check for the latest GotoMeeting login ids at quantlabs.net/academy

Where F# fits in a Microsoft R Driven world?

I have some breaking news so read towards the end of the bottom of this email.

 

Where FSharp fits in a Microsoft R Driven world?

I got this story about how F# from Microsoft is being retooled. As we know about the recent Revolutionary Analytics take over, it gets quite interesting in how Microsoft will handle both languages R and F#. Honestly I would’ve thought that they would have eventually neglected F# as they have done with other projects including Silverlight.

Apple iPad 4 new feature with Matlab Mobile

 

As I like to do my occasional Apple Mac rumors intake, I came across this new feature will be very cool with the new upcoming iPad. With this new feature, it will make remote development on an iPad using Matlab mobile very very cool.

 

Go here for more details

 

Let’s get to the biggest news I can report in a while. I just created a 30 minute video for you that will highlight the capabilities of Matlab Simulink with a common algorithm including call put parity for options trading. Not only that, I showcase how to generate automatically C or C++ programming source code from it. This is the most revolutionary way of taking your trading idea and converting it automatically to a high-speed programming language. This is not only useful for high-frequency trading, but very powerful for simulating in. Not only that, I have included all the files with source code generated as you can see in the video. Even if you don’t have Matlab, I think you’ll find the C or C++ source code to be very useful.

Go here for my my Intro to Simulink trading model with C code

As usual, I make this final source package available to all my Quant Elite members.

Thanks for reading

Which C++ would you use for your number crunching high speed app?

Honestly, this gets confusing. Which compiler? Which library/API? Which parallel approach? Which Linux distribution? To .NET or .NOT? Hmmm….let’s talk

Is Pypy being used or is it another dead Python project? Or should I just focus on C or C++ for high speed trading ka HFT development?

I love reading stuff like this line:

Psyco is unmaintained and dead. Please look at PyPy for the state-of-the-art in JIT compilers for Python.

Register for The Four Components of Market Structure by a Forex Trader

Thanks to one omy local Meetup members

I am doing a FREE webinar: “The Four Components of Market Structure” at 7:30 PM EASTERN (-5 GMT) on WEDNESDAY October 29, 2014

Most people don’t succeed at their trading because they fail to master their own thinking–they usually have very sophisticated market knowledge and a lot of experience.  

 

But the fact is–markets aren’t structured like you think they are in the first place….making your thinking and market knowledge even MORE critical to master. The first step is to learn what the markets are made of; learn what the “DNA” is all about….

 

So please come on Wednesday–I have a FREE gift for you just for attending–so check it out and see if what I have can really help you shorten your learning curve.

Who wins this battle? Python or F# for rapid ease of use for a newbie software engineer with videos

Who wins this battle? Python or F# for rapid ease of use for a newbie software engineer with videos

Why does Micrsoft technologies always surpass. Int this case it was F#. Remember I don;t know with either Python or F# but these videos should explain it

Problem:

Here is why I gave up on Python aka dogs breakfeast of a so called programming language
here are all the open browser sessions I left open which was discussed in this video . Sorry to be mean but I had to records this as is

Quick resolution:

Instant DotNet F Sharp surface plot with Visual Studio and DirectX faster than Python
Seriously, why bother with Python after this rapid get and up running demo of this surface plot. I don’t even know F# as it took less then 20 minutes to run!
See more
Why oh why do I this to myself after 6 hours of wasted punishment? I am also starting to think maybe DirectX maybe easier to work with than OpenGL/Qt. Who knows but another battle may await?

Thanks Bryan

More open source charting packages with DotNet FSharp. Work with quantmod through R Provider?

More open source charting packages with DotNet FSharp. Work with quantmod through R Provider?

My same community member just notified me of this Charting package for F#. Thanks to him!!

Also…… http://fsharp.github.io/FSharp.Charting/

It would be extra cool if you could use R’s quantmod package through this new R Provide within F#. That would rule as that appears to be one of the most sophisticated open source charting packages I have seen. Wonder if that is possible. http://www.quantmod.com/examples/intro/

I think it’s Dundas which Microsoft bought some time back.
