Insider pro lessons learned video for Crypto algo trading on Sep 17

I cannot type what I talk about here but there are quite a number of gems I have never publicized before. This is an important 30+ minute video. I especially highlight you do not need to trade 24/7. If you set a certain target of daily percent moves against your overall portfolio, you can easily reduce risk by overtrading. This takes place in both up and down markets for the crypto currency asset class.

There are lessons in this 30 minute video

Please watch this video with all the others I have highlighted on Youtube channel at youtube.com/quantlabs.

Lessons learned about CCXT Python package for 3 largest crypto exchanges Bitmex binance OKex

Lessons learned about CCXT Python package for 3 largest crypto exchanges Bitmex Binance OKex

Please be advised

Using CCXT with a recent script I sourced to download generically from various exchanges is powerful. I have thought come across some severe limitations in the process.

  1. Binance appears to be the most reliable since you have the widest selection of timeframes you can use. Also, you can download up to 1000 rows into a comma separated value file as well.
  2. Both Bitmex and OKEx offer some form downloading limit of 500 which really messes up my analytical Python script. When downloading, you can only seem to have a limit of 400 to just under 500. This seems to work only work for lower time frames like 1 or 5 minutes. As the timeframe selection is very limited compared to Binance.

I am unsure of other crypto currency exchanges what limitations offer but I will stick with Binance for now as the only exchange of interest. It seems that the others offer much lower daily volume which means slower fills due to lower liquidity.  Also the other exchanges have weird download exceptions which also means the charting will not work as well.

 

Further note about Bitfinix

I just execute 5 request no different than Binance, Bitfinex starts thinking it is being attacked where it responds:

ccxt.base.errors.DDoSProtection: bitfinex {“error”:”ERR_RATE_LIMIT”}

Pretty pathetic architecture if you ask me.

In summary, it just seems that Binance works out of box for both downloading and charting.

 

Update: Which Bitcoin crypto currency bot project? Gekko vs ccxt vs Tribeca vs Blackbird

Lessons learned with Matlab automated trading webinar for HFT with Simulink and Stateflow

Lessons learned with Matlab automated trading webinar for HFT with Simulink and Stateflow

Stuart Kozola of Mathworks does a new automated trading webinar that blew my socks off as usual. It does take a lot to impress me these days.

Lessons learned:

  1. I have seen many multi million dollar systems but the event code paradigm introduced here verifies how smart any quant or HFT system should be implemented
  2. Data providers and proper ways to implement with proper design patterns will make your system very flexible
  3. Proper use cases for Matlab Production Server in the financial trading world
  4. HFT examples using Simulink and Stateflow. Any reminder of my videos of this?

 

Where  does this leave? Implement it all but study the above examples you can get on Matlab File Central.
