The madness will begun.
Our homes will be in shambles, we’ll be nearly catatonic from gluttony, and our children will be so hopped up on sugary desserts their teeth will be chattering.
That one weird uncle will drink too much and stay just a little past his welcome, and the scale in the bathroom will read, “You’ve got a great personality” when it’s all over.
Of course, I’m talking about THANKSGIVING.
It’s one of the best times of year and one of the craziest and busiest, too!

Needing one on one help ??? Coaching or mentoring for your trading idea?
I am also gauging gauging to see if you need one on one guidance for your trading idea, strategy implementation, or so on. Some called this coaching or mentoring. Let me know right away if interested. I have an offer you may interested in but it will be highly limited since my time is always crunched.
Reach out via social media
Let me know what you think via my social media contact
I must say forecasting on hunch is not smart. As a result, In coming days I will be showcasing the combination of Harmonic/Head & Shoulder/Candle patterns to confirm any analytical theory. Stay tuned for that.
Java is not the way for algo trading and machine learning
if you are into Java and machine learning, you might want to hear what Saraj Raval who does a popular Youtube channel, he says that Java is an old language which he dislikes. He also compares it to when you learn first programming languages in your computer science class. I sort of agree considering where we are in the industry.
As an example, you could look the Alexa.com stats for Dkkascopy which has dropped from 30k to 45k roughly over the last year. Why the drop? I believe it is because the only API available for DUkascopy is Java with JForex. They may want to add Python at some point.
Speaking of Dukascopy and Python, you could check out Oanda’s ranking which is at 3.9k roughly since they added Python a few years ago. Also, they are much more popular than Interactive Brokers (12.2 ranking on Alexa) which has an added wonky Python support but still have C++ support as well.
C++ is the future vs Java for sure when it comes to machine learning and algo trading.
After accomplishing the latest set of charts to generate both a long and short term view on forex pairs, the next challenge is determine what is happening to them when they consolidate. It seem the financial pros use many type of trading patterns to determine potential pricing action. This enables traders to see if any currency pair will have a breakout moment to perfect time a market entry.
There are so many different patterns but I have identified the ones NicTrades uses most often. After reviewing the rationale behind them, it makes sense to test them out. As I am using JForex, it seems this pattern functionality is rather limiting in the platform. It is also not quite as advanced in other platforms including Metatrader 4. I even tried looking for coding samples in Python. Unless I use machine language for chart pattern recognition, the choices are somewhat limited. I am also finding to try machine learning at this point will only further delay the implementation of my automated trading. It will be a nice to do this project later in the near future but I will not be able to do it right now.
Onto Metatrader 4 scripts the forex trading platform
Being on Mac has its advantages but I will tell you it can limit youth certain software. Metatrader is one of them. You can attempt to run a ‘MacOS’ version through a Wine packaged version. The brokers out there do a poor job at this. I tried running the one from FXPro but it did not run. I did get a version running from XM but they seem to be an unreliable broker being based out of Cyprus. They also take European only customers as well. These were the only ones I tried so I will not further waste anymore time going down this path. Also, I still refuse to run anything on Windows as it is just seems to run like a dog. I even tried running Linux via a virtual machine but I still would rather put staples in my head.
Note that I did find 3 MQL4 scripts that prove to have all the trading patterns I would like to try.
This is where you could come in
Then I had this Eureka moment! Why not hire someone to translate these MQL4 scripts into Python 3? It should be a problem to find people through this ;community’ since Metatrader/MT4 /MQL4 is super popular. It also involves simple math judging from the source code. There may be some wonky translation of charting code to something within a Python Matplotlib package. Up for a challenge? If so, get in touch with right away.
