In a phone interview with The Register, Robinson added the financial industry to the list. “Finance is one of the highest rates of visits to pandas,” he said.

Converting tick data to OHLC with Python pandas

Converting tick data to OHLC data using Python pandas

As I am moving from long-term position holds to short term, I was lucky enough to see this article shoot by on my Facebook feed. In order to convert market data ticks to actual open high low close bars is a very useful trick to know about. This one is done in Python but could be very useful for those that want to trade at a high-speed level.

I have talked about removing my “Python Infrastructure Building Block” course from my Quant Elite membership.  Over the next few days, that will become a reality. This is no difference then the removal of my Interactive Brokers API workshop course last week. I hate being a Scrooge like this but it’s to prepare for the next level of my business for next year. I’m sure you get that if you continue reading over the next few weeks on my plans. I’m actually pretty excited about it after six years of so-called “research “.

Thanks Bryan

Coolest candlestick charting with Python QtPyGraph Pandas and Metatrader forex trading platform

This is a good stuff from a Youtube commenter known at FemtoTrader

https://github.com/femtotrader/rabbit4mt4

I could definitely use something like for my higher speed trading but right now this current system is very passive with needing only weekly or monthly frequency. Many thanks to this person’s generosity of providing code!

If you really want to get fancy with Metatrader, you could link it with ZeroMQ instead of RabbitMQ.

Why not Python/Pandas like AQR capital management does? Why not Cassandra NOSQL database like BlueMountain Capital does?

Why not Python or Pandas like AQR capital management does?  Why not Cassandra NOSQL database like BlueMountain Capital does?

Questions about yesterday from a newsletter subscriber:

Why not Python/Pandas like AQR does? See quote by Roni Israelov here: http://pandas.pydata.org/

Or Cassandra like BlueMountain Capital does?
These firms spend millions trying to solve the same problems as you do. There is probably value in the approaches they recommend.
This was from earlier today on:

First. Blue Mountatin also focuses on F#:
http://techblog.bluemountaincapital.com/2012/08/01/announcing-the-f-r-type-provider/
As for Cassandra, this is a toss up betweeen MongoDB and Reddit. The powers to be easily swing towards MongoDB but still prefer a home grown in memory database solution.
As for Pandas Python and Pypy, I want to use it but will be around in 5 years? Will my scripts stil;l be compatible? Pypy does not give me any confidence but this does not mean a quick death to Python. Believe me, its popular and it has my attention. The question is: How do I deploy it with all these other options?

Video shows how this hedge fund uses FSharp but also developed a bridge to R and Python Pandas equivelant package

Video shows how this hedge fund uses FSharp but also developed a bridge to R and Python Pandas equivelant package

We know about all the above but a few things to take away from this video:

The RProvider package is exciting and easy to use supposedly to bridge R into your F# and Visual Studio environment

The Deedle looks decent for those who want to move into something like Python Pandas but I probably would never use it
