2.1 “Did you know?”

  • AR, MA, ARMA, ARIMA processes and their multivariate counterparts can be reduced to, or approximated as, a VAR(1) process [Comment]
  • Hidden Markov models are the hidden-factor generalization of Markov chains and mixture models  [Comment]

Top 3 programming items for edge in high frequency trading

Top 3 computer science items for edge in high frequency trading

Somebody ask me the top three items that would give them edge if they were ever to do high-frequency trading. My answers were fairly straightforward but I do think innovation is a key as well. Why trade dumb money or “sheeple”?

 

See what my answers were here

 

Quant developer need to know multi threading

Actually I lied or no I didn’t. Inside you need to understand multithreading in multicore programming at the C++ lower level in your fancy no frills Linux target system. Why do you think HFT shops pay literally hundreds of thousands of dollars to their developers? Why do you think algorithms need to operate faster than the blink of an eye?

 

Go here to understand the rationale behind this.

 

Hopefully my last two emails will open your eyes on how to do automated trading. I have only been talking about technology as usual but the trading ideas is where it’s at. As I’ve mentioned about innovation, imagine the trading ideas I will unleashed forr this new upcoming AK-47 version 2 trading system?

 

As usual, only my Quant Elite members will be able to partake in it.

As usual thanks for reading

Your online pal,

Bryan

HFT architecture considerations with Fastflow in C++

HFT architecture considerations with Fastflow in C++


I just made a video on the considerations for a new open source architecture of a high-speed system for Interactive Brokers. The highlights to take away from this video include:

Possibly similar performances of an FPGA or GPU board thanks to this software accelerator feature

How Goldman Sachs uses an internal risk management database called secDB.

Check out this detailed video here

Hardware considerations for server with C++ Fastflow architecture

A few months ago I posted a potential server that could be great to use this new architecture on a bare-bones Linux system. I have listed what I think are the important features for any server that you would need for a high-speed trading system. 

Check out that list here.

Meetup: Message queue demos with NOSQL Redis C++ Java and Interactive Brokers
