Hi Bryan, appreciate you getting back to me, thanks.
I wondered if you still use the simulink/stateflow system to
generate models and trade from and what interface/broker you use?
and do you use generated c++ code with broker API?
Also, you referred to
using this simulink workflow to generate HDL and use FPGA- I have a couple of
free simple sample models from the internet in simulink and can generate the
HDL code the way you show in you video, but how can I use this with my home PC
and FPGA with a NIC and data provider/broker who cater for FPGA setup.
I mainly trade futures, not a programmer or anything like that. Thanks Brian! really appreciate any advice you have.
I like this Youtube video comment from above
Yes, there was a time I would think I wanted to code everything in C++. Now, I do still use the language but there are a large amount of libraries that I relay on to get my projects going quickly. I am finally seeing the value of python in getting things done quickly. Optimization is a touchy topic. If your algo works with little change over time, then you may want to optimize, but adjusting your algo may be a monthly thing and optimizing may be premature or unnecessary.

I decided to refer to the Matlab Technical Analysis toolbox for which might be considered some of the really reliable indicators. As revealed in the video, it was shown how the one I was relying on (regression) was just too choppy which threw off my strategy closing on exit. As this video shows, I try a variety of indicators to see which ones ‘visually’ made sense with no latency on the pricing direction. In other words, could the indicator keep up with fast moving price changes at low time frames? The video shows what I found.
As a result, I may scrap this strategy to try another approach starting next week. Yes, nearly 2 months were wasted but I have definitely found my techniques to properly assess a trading strategy potential under development. This means no time was ever wasted at all as I gathered some precious skills that I am sure any unprofitable retail traders will argue.
As always, you kind my two courses listed below that helped me get to this point using Dukascopy Jforex.
P.S. More technical indicators will be used testing with results to come soon!
there just aren’t enough hours in the day with my job to watch every video… wow!
My head is going to explode…. trouble focusing on Python training… look over there… cows!
question about Matlab…
I want to get it, but what add-ons do you think I need based on possble IB API strategies?
Keep in mind, that each add-on is $50 or so..
With all the add-ons you could think of, would it be more than $500,say?
Thanks for the kind words but it is a lot so I have spent over the last months stripping out stuff you may not need. The Python should be the easiest and quickest path to your goals. You COULD get Matlab but I am not needing it at this point since Python covers a lot of it. As you know, Python is free. As for the costs of Matlab, it sounds right but your best bet is to go to their site/sales staff to confirm. Also, it is still highly limited on how you can extend your Matlab scripts to do anything with other systems. This is when it gets into the thousands of Matlab costs.NOTE I now post myTRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
I thought you might be interested in this, MathWorks has a discounted product bundle for finance. The links to it are…
It’s $4250 for 12 toolboxes for a year. I’ve never seen them offer a discount like this before. Hope it lasts.
Should we get excited? I love MATLAB but I already repel the annual $100 for Microsoft Office. I think you will know I stick to my open source languages like Python or R. I thought I would let you know about this MATLAB deal anyhow.
Also, today QuantLabs.net enters into a new era. I no longer will grant access those to my Quant ELITE as it will be winding down for all my current members.
I will be focusing 100% of my energy onto the new up and coming Quant ANALYTICS service
I am very excited about this but realize here are my outstanding items before I go crazy with it:
1. Some backend marketing stuff
2. Develop a mobile set of custom front of apps to be deployed onto Apple IOS developed in Swift. These will be for my use only which means don’t expect them to get released. I may do some videos on them but nothing will be released.
Once these two steps are completed, you can expect a BIG FOCUS on setting up my Dukascopy Forex strategy setup with live trading.

One word: AWESOME!!! Thanks to one to my newsletter subscribers for sending this. If you ever want to know this debate, Matlab is your pick. If you want to do open source and free, I would recommend to Python. Even New York City financial firms are using Python, but they do not use R as much as originally thought.
Yes this Quant Analytics is coming so much sooner than you know. Once running, all bundled courses will be removed permanently from the ELITE . As explained in the video above, these courses have been evaluated by our marketing expert who feels they may be worth thousands each alone. Who knows? But there is already an intro to a Day Trading Guru charging well over $50k/year for his services. What should that tell you? There is a market willing to pay for these premium services. Guess what this new Analytics service will target? I posted this message on my Facebook earlier:
If you think people cannot charge $50k as a mediocre ‘day trading guru’, you live in another world. When you compare what I am about to unleash, I should be able to charge 4-5x that to 7-9 digit folks who run trading firms. These are the same people who want to automate their successful trading operations. Take heed while you can to take advantage of my offerings NOW!Each one will be spun out where my marketing genius claims I should be charging thousands for each one. That day is coming very soon. Take it or leave it, I will be going premium as I hinted a while back.http://quantlabs.net/mkt/quant-elite/
IT IS NOW OR NEVER!
In summary, if you have the technical skills, you may want to take advantage of what this service has to offer.

In this video below, I offer my opinion on new features that may be useful for algorithm for systematic traders with the new MATLAB 2016 B. As you know, I have worked with all the major prototyping research languages out there including Python and R. Again in this video I offered my comparison of where I would use each one having its own unique advantages.

Just so everybody knows, I am going through a major product and service reset over the next few weeks. I will be able to determine what products and services will continue well into next year. Some will most likely be dropped in coming months including all my Microsoft Windows and .Net related programming items which is part of my Quant Elite Membership.
So if you’re interested in any of that, I would strongly recommend you to check it all out by joining or asking questions. All these programming demos are definitely on a timeline as of today.
If you have not seen this video posted on futures.io, you may want to visit Dr. Ernie Chan’s view on which programming platform is best for researching models. In this video, he covers all three major platforms including Python, Matlab and R. You may want to watch this to see what one the good doctor recommends.
In yesterday’s email I did make a statement about how Matlab can be very different in your automated trading. An actual fact I do believe it will give you trading edge over the other languages. Because of my new upcoming service focusing on trading analytics instead of trading platforms, I can now put all my attention into generating very unique data sets and charts that no one else does. You can get more info on this new service here
As stated, some of my video coding demonstrations will be permanently removed in the next few months. I have not put together a hard set date yet depending upon my progress on my current software development of my system but that will come in due time. As a result, I highly recommend you to check out my Quant Elite membership. You could always join here NOTE I now post myTRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER.
