From time to time,I get questions about my potential training and coarse series is I am currently doing. As you know, I like to make videos to condense everything into a visual that seems to be easier for people to consume. For the set of questions I get, I even typed up my answers as well.
As I make even more videos, you will notice that I’ve been focusing a lot on this Phase 2 of my Futures and Options trading algorithms. You can see a subset on my YouTube channel but I’m not promoting them on my blog. The reason is that these are exclusive for my Quant Elite members to learn from. The simple examples are very effective and lay down the foundation to understand how to listen to the markets for forecasting.
I’m still questioning on the performance complexities of machine learning and quantitative analysis at this point. Even if I’m wrong, the course material that I’m presenting will still be very very useful in understanding the foundations of how the market flows on a daily basis. It’s just too bad some miss out on the opportunities to learn these critical elements to help optimize their trading performance.
Thanks for reading
P.S. As you know, I blog a lot. So why miss out on all of it? Join my FREE Daily Digest to receive everything I do. I keep all info private as well.
I am 24 hours away from introducing my first LIVE lesson on helping those who want to build out their
own independent algo/automated trading business. This idea has been spawned by Dr. Ernie Chan's
I have purposely strayed away from offering any cloud solutions so that you can own and control your own
intellectual trading ideas that only you will see. You also get to own source code as well with
no limitations whatsoever. As part of my first LIVE lesson, I will be highlighting why I choose
Python which is probably the most popular open source programming language used for both
quant analysis as well as medium frequency trading.
So you really need to ask yourself why you don't want to miss out on all this. I have purposely kept things
very simple for all tech newbies who struggle with programming. I have leading retail trading educators
acknowledging that their businesses are going by the way of the dodo as well. Automated trading is here
to stay which is taking over the future of all human trading. Do not get sucked into limiting or highly
expensive black box technology where you will end up spending thousands when you can save yourself
on this course series. Don't believe me? Go through the thousands of articles on my blog
or hear the stories of those who have chosen the wrong paths of "automated trading."
The most important part of all these LIVE lessons is to take full advantage of my compressed time to
go over in detail your queries about these type of trading systems. I highly doubt I'll be ever doing
this again as I'll be moving into more advanced topics in a few months. Unfortunately, I will not be
able to address these topics ever again in the near future.
What about credibility or third party verification?
Lastly, at the end of my article you will see that I use a third-party service to showcase that my
community is one of the most successful in the world for trading. No one else uses this type of
service to validate their claims.
A powerful motivational video we all need to be that renegade indie trader you always wanted to be so you can tell your boss to shove it
I found this sort of, what is the word, hmmmm…..insptirational, motivating, blah blah. I thought it was some cheap ass cheaply made self motivational blah blah kind of video. Nope. It was not, very high quality and makes you need to believe in what you do every day by your lonesome self. To all of you in the same boat, I truly hope that each and everyone of you make it to what ever you believe will be in in short order.
Thanks to that Facebook/Linkedin visitor to resetting it all back. Kind of like being a renegade quant and HFT trading wannabbe. Let’s hope we all get there.
Developing and marketing Quant apps for Apple’s new IPod Touch, iPhone, and iTunes is not easy for us indie guys!
I just got a note from Twanda who has got his quant application into Apple’s iTunes. Here is what was said:
My day count app is now on the iTunes store. I hope it has all the date features a quant would want, and I hope you will like.
Meanwhile work continues on the real product.
Thanks for publicizing my work.
He also needs to fix his spelling on the third word as he would upset a few women. Don’t worry, I thankfully noticed that one.
Anyhow, you can search around on this site for what application it is. I was not given an app name.
You might also want to check out the CFA iPhone app. Could be close for quants.
As Apple released their new iPad Touch and .TV products, I am very interested in finally getting into this world. I find the iPod Touch very appealing as I am not a fan of coughing up $700 for an iPod or iPhone. I don’t like cell phone three year contracts either.
Back to this iPhone app marketing. I came across another fine article at QuantNet.com where some Master of Financial Engineer decided to go into being an iPhone app start up. I don’t find it encouraging with comments like:
Developing an app isn’t just about having a cool idea and programming it. If you intend for it to be a source of income, you need to deal with all of the other business aspects that go with it— legal, business, project management, personnel management, marketing, etc. It is true that there are many hats to wear, and if you are the type of person who can juggle hats, you just might succeed.
That’s a big help to an entrepreneur because starting a business is very stressful. And if I cannot raise or earn money from the business, I will have to find a job at some point.
Other app developers’ say that the number one thing that increased downloads was being featured by Apple in the app store.
And blah blah blah more quotes found here:
I personally don’t find that encouraging unless you are building a brand and extend it through mobile apps like iPhone or Android.
Here is a conversation on reddit.com which pretty well inspired me tostart thinking about blending my knowledge of technology and financial investment. This was pretty inspiring where an indie software engineer launched his own business. He claims he is claiming over $800,000 a year with his system he build. His only current limitation is his ability scale up on capital. You should read as it is very inspiring for developers wanting to make money.
I used to work as a software engineer and started developing and trading automated strategies in my spare time in 2006. I went full time in 2007 and have been profitable every quarter since. AMAA
Edit: I’ve gotten a few personal requests for mentoring. I’m not really in the business of teaching, but if you have some kind of prowess whether it be computer science, math, stats, I can teach you a few things, if you teach me a few things.
