Next generation crypto alt coin outperform long term vs bitcoin and major market assets

Next generation crypto alt coin outperorm long term vs bitcoin and major market assets

For today, new generation crypto all coins are doing pretty decent still. Not as great compared to last month but still outperforming. I am starting to think Bitcoin should no longer be the speaking voice of all crypto currencies.

The VIX is still to high to show no clarity in the markets. What does the mean? It might show the market sentiment may see a drop which will be most likely news or macro event new driven down.

Congrats! Open Source language MAJOR #FAIL with hell of install of working with Python and R. UGH!

Congrats! Open Source language MAJOR  #FAIL with hell of install of configuring with Python and R. UGH! Hello Microsoft DotNET?

Despite my sort of further experiments in both languages. I have failed. What horrid mess both are, As for the false hope of Python  with Anaconda, it showed some promise but when you see messages like:

If MySQLdb’s now distributed in a way that requires setuptools, your choices are either to download the latter (e.g. from here) or refactor MySQLdb’s setup.py to bypass setuptools (maybe just importing setup and Extension from plain distutils instead might work, but you may also need to edit some of the setup_*.py files in the same directory).

Depending on how your site’s Python installation is configured, installing extensions for your own individual use without requiring sysadm rights may be hard, but it’s never truly impossible if you have shell access. You’ll need to tweak your Python’s sys.path to start with a directory of your own that’s your personal equivalent of the system-wide site pacages directory, e.g. by setting PYTHONPATH persistently in your own environment, and then manually place in said personal directory what normal installs would normally place in site-packages (and/or subdirectories thereof).

 

or:

I resolved this issue on centos5.4 by running the following command to install setuptools

 

Or:

this was sort of tricky for me too, I did the following

 

or

I am experiencing the same problem right now.

I still don’t know how to install MySQLdb module or Quandl. I will give RStudio credit, it has an excellent package manager where you don’t need to do this wonky crap on the command line. I gave up.

But it seems so easy on Linux. Well, I am Windows so I crawl back to all .NET and Excel and Matlab.

I tried but seriously, I think I would rather bang my head against the wall in peace. I don’t have time to waste on stuff like this. It looked promising but tossed it after than I patience could handle. It was not a good start or shall I say? Reset.

Quant opinion: Why it could be hard to resell major stock exchange tick data from the likes of NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, LSE, etc?

Quant opinion: Why it could be hard to resell major stock exchange tick data from the likes of NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, LSE, etc?

This was a question someone asked about reselling stock exchange tick data from large providers:

hi: If you ever construct a quote or trades database ( the data that nyse sells ) for U.S equities, let me
know because what’s currently out there to buy is REALLY EXPENSIVE. tickdata sells 1 year
for I think 12 or 14K.  thanks.

My response:

I am sure a lot of the tick databases from large stock exchanges will not allow
people like me to resell. I am sure it is part of their end user agreements
 no different than Yahoo Finance. I would love to sell those but as said, it could be really hard.
Thanks for responding.
Bryan

Making Java changes with Eclipse to create awesome indicators and alerts from all MAJOR stock exchanges. Full automation here I come!!

I need to hack Java using Eclipse. After using Visual Studio 2010 for a while, I wonder if Eclipse is as robust as Visual Studio. It is. Java is decent. But now I got to go through a huge amount of Java source code to make some hacks on custom indicators from global stock exchanges. This thing will blow your mind as many alerts will be coming into our new Member ship services. This thing is going to smoke!

My highlights on why quant HFT computer trading caused the last major stock market crash

My highlights on why HFT computer trading caused the last major stock market crash
These are quotes from:
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/high-speed-trading-led-to-flash-crash-survey-2010-08-10?reflink=MW_news_stmp&goback=.gde_2107793_member_26888252ember_26888252

Here we go:
More than 80% of advisers said use of computer systems and high-frequency trading contributed to the May 6 volatility, according to a poll of 380 U.S. retail advisers published Monday.
But more than 80% of advisers said their accounts were minimally impacted and did not see ETF or stock-trade reversals, according to iShares’ survey. In fact, 54% said ETFs were still the top investment product to use in volatile market, followed by bonds and mutual funds

The Securities and Exchange Commission on June 10 approved new circuit-breaker rules to prevent another crash, which halts trading of certain stocks if prices move 10% or more within a 5-minute period

Still, 75% of financial advisers said an event similar to what happened on May 6 is inevitable, and 36% said they expect market volatility to increase

Comments included:
Thing is, … these HFT were supposed to replace floor traders as market makers. In fact HFT gets paid to provide liquidity in the form of rebate from the exchange, which is in addition to profiteering from bid-ask spread. It is no wonder that some of these guys haven’t lost money in several years. So, if HFT is to truly become the market makers, SEC needs to put in a rule that says they can’t shut down their machine and go home if the market condition turns against them.
Time to stop this fractional price trading these computer programs use to cheat investors. That would stop some of their non-sense volume trading as they just can’t trade massive volumes spread over a fraction of a penny.

I have often thought that the real “Skynet” (the computer system that brings down the world) would be a Banking/Finance system gone rogue rather than a Military defense system. looks like we may be well on our way to “May 6, 2010 was the day that CashNet became aware”
