Mechanics of ranking currency pairs for forex trading opportunity automatically

Mechanics of ranking currency pairs for forex trading opportunity automatically

Different analytical metrics used

There are a number of way I am building a process to automatically select optimal currency pairs based on:

  1. Statistical view 
  2. Technical analysis using Fibonacci re-tracement, Moving average, trend, and buy/sell signals
  3. Patterns and pivots points

Different charting periods include daily, 4 hour, and 1 hour.

This videos goes into detail how I plan to use these methodologies including money management with portfolio optimization and ways to protect the account. It will be interesting to see how it plays out in the near future.

Each major trading session will analyzed determine optimal expected return.  This is covered in the video as well.

Trading VIX Option Mechanics video

Trading VIX Option Mechanics

So after coming off my options and futures architecture phase, I had loads of questions for Sholom to answer them. He even even made a video for me which you can see here.

Check out this quick video here

I think this explains how he basically trades his VIX options. From what I learned, I am totally different and more fundamental. I also will lay out a solid foundation where to start to from the recent UC Davis course I have harped on about over the last few years. I would highly recommend anyone to learn from it who takes their trading seriously. Automated or not!

Lastly, I finished this phase where all my video content has been posted also among my note taking as well. It could be useful for some people including my Quant Elite numbers:

Unit 21 Black Scholes option pricing with volatility defined
Unit 22 Black Scholes continued with Delta Effect
Unit 23 Hedging options
Unit 24 Option Trading Example vs Future

This is part of my “Indie Algo Trading Business in Python” course series so get the details here.

Last phase is now starting this week!

It is now done. As mentioned yesterday, I am going start to focus on a new set of content for the REAL successful FX trader.

Thanks Bryan

Notes on futures markets history and market mechanics

This is the first video of the future options course

As speculator you try to find intrinsic value on asset using fundamental view. Value of gold based on supply and demand characteristic. Technicians focus on past price behaviour based on past patterns. Options are written on futures contracts. 80% of speculators  lose
Money. Uses candlestick chart to visually see contracts. You can liquidate the position to sell and reverse. Buy low sell high contract. Ypu only put up a margin  deposit pf The total value of the futures contract. EG $2000 on a $28 per barrel of 1000 equaling $28,000. Based on your broker u can
get lots of leverage.
