Quant stacking the cool round 2 of the last day….

Boy, I have been a busy boy since last Friday because I made these videos:

—CHARTING WITH FULL BLOOMBERG LIKE QUALITY EQUITY PLATFORM FRONT END —

Infragistics has sexy DotNET WPF and Silverlight front end apps for trading platforms

Wow. All I can say this charting is wow. If you need something slick and what appears to be very fast, this could be it

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2014/11/infragistics-has-sexy-dotnet-wpf-and-silverlight-front-end-apps-for-trading-platforms/

Updated DevExpress look with Stock charting and Windows 8 tile

I still prefer the Infragistics over this for the same money

— MACHINE LEARNING WITH BIG DATA AND PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS —

Is Syncfusion useful for big data or predictive analytics machine learning in trading with Hadoop and HDInsight for Azure Cloud

This has the classic modern buzzy stuff which can be accessed by R or .NET C#. Links from the video

–DATABASE FOR REDUNDANCY AND SPEED —

Why I go with SQL Server over Oracle as a backend database for Windows? Where does MongoDB NOSQL for Linux fit?

I made this video to explain it faster forcing you to read bad typing

It is quant and retail trading newsletter readers like this that make the job better and more innovative, kind of like Robin Hood

It is quant and retail trading newsletter readers like this that make the job better and more innovative, kind of like Robin Hood

I have responded to this person. Honestly, it is people like this that drive me  to be better at what I try to do so thanks to him and others like yourself who read this. You do get negative boneheads at the same time who just gloss over what I do. That is ok since they most likely will spin their wheels at experimenting with automated trading with little results. Honestly, they most likely will waste years of their time. Case in point here: http://www.wilmott.com/messageview.cfm?catid=38&threadid=97177 I need to thank  the Sholomster for sending this this. Anyhoo back to our positive minded supporter.

Hi Good Day Bryan

 

Bryan I am not sucking up to you, but your work is amazing !!! you are like a “Robin Hood” for retail trader…

 Oh thanks. No need to ‘suck up’ as I just like to help.

This is my call!!

 

I read through every newsletters you send, I have bought few open source trading platform  which I could not go no were to install and up and running

 NO worries as I blog about everything I do regardless if it is good or bad. I am just honest where sometime it can get nasty. Everything does not get emailed but you can follow at https://quantlabs.net/blog/sitemap.xml

As for this last email about creating the fundamental  data converted into trading signals , I came across this” Raven pack indictor “ I have not tried it nor


affiliation with them, will this be similar to what you want to do? Get fundamental signal through Matlab and directly trade with  IB-MATLAB ?

  I know of this Ravenpack but these get expensive which is why I like IQFeed since it is the best quality service and the most affordable for us mortals. I have also worked with IB-Matlab but you can trade directly out of Matlab with http://www.mathworks.com/help/trading/ibtws.html using the Matlab Trading Toolbox. In my opinion, this is NOT the best way but my courses offer better ways via http://quantlabs.net/academy/buy-our-custom-trading-platform-course-with-source-code/.  I need to remind everyone this includes source code! 

I am retail trader with limited Programming experience , hence I have done 3day matlab basic training and I am gaining confidence in matlab

 Matlab is the easiest thing to work with. Honestly, I had enough problems with R and Python where I am removing both tools from my recently installed Windows 8.1 environment.

I am keen to become a Elite subscriber soon I hope all the help and support for me to become a successful trader!!

Without the support of these people, I would not advance as far and as fast. I am always grateful to those who support what I do.

 

Thanking for your time….

 

I could not comprehend  so much research work  you do…Robin hood

Again, thanks for the support and readin.

 

Regards

This could handle a nice graphics card for multiple monitors. This company is out of the UK but that should not matter. Maybe there is an equivalent for North American orders?

A complete Q&A from a potential quant member about Detlix, back testing, ticks, strategies, and trading platform

A complete Q&A from a potential quant member about Detlix, back testing, ticks, strategies, and trading platform

A potential member and visitor asked the following:

(Answers followed by my ->)

Writing this email to check some assumptions and ask some questions.

 

Am a rather new trader with math and 15 years of complex software

development.

Looking to become a profitable trader both discretionary and automated.

 

Very interested to use models you talk about on the site.

Looking to put some money to work.

Not afraid of hard work but must be profitable and not do it to satisfy

my software development and self education thirst.

 

–> Sure we want all that but no one can ever guarantee profitability

 

Would you say one can be profitable with the strategies and models your

group uses?

Are there such existing strategies that bring profits now?

 

–> I am about to start this analysis but this will take weeks (or months) but again, no one can ever guarantee profits. As profits prove themselves, it will add value to my membership which will then result higher monthly rates

 

Would you say they are production ready and able to trade real money?

If not then what does it take to take them there?

 

–> everything is production ready but again you will need to optimize the strategy code to your liking and trading goals. What I show is a foundation for now. My private member only webinars will show how to do this

 

Can you please tell me more about your business goals so I can better

gauge how I’d fit and help?

 

–> Like everybody profits but I am going slow and steady to understand each step of the way in great detail

 

More questions below if you care to answer them.

 

Thanks

Nick

 

1. Have you used NinjaTrader? I have some indicators useful for my

discretionary trading and would like to

reverse engineer & port them to a platform with better back testing

support.

Can you do this (reverse engineering) or others in your group?

–> I don’t use other platforms after long time learning, I would recommend working with your chosen broker’s API instead as that will save time in the long run

 

Not very sophisticated: fib lines, ATR based trend indicators, etc.

 

2. Do you use advanced strategy development tools like alphacet and

deltix?

 

–> I have been offered these but I am not interested in anything blackbox

I am looking at Deltix and it is pretty awesome.

Would you care to consider it for the group? (we’d share the costs)

–> I am not sure if this can be done in terms of having 70+ members sharing one license

 

Costs a lot per month due to expensive tick based data feeds but feels

very powerful.

 

3. What kind of strategies and models do you use?

 

– trend following

– counter trend

– breakout

– order-flow based

– tick data based

– volume based

– sentiment based (like ravenpack)

 

–> most will be quant based but the focus will be in order of priority of the results of this

http://quantlabs.net/surveys/2012/06/29/what-financial-forecasting-model-type-do-you-focus-on-within-r-or-other-statistical-tool/

 

If not then you interested in the above?

 

4. What data feed you use?

Tick or not?

 

–> both put prefer tick for live analysis but back testing needs bar

 

5. What backtesting tools, data feed and practices do you use?

–> I will be using parts of an open source HFT platform which has this in an automated way

Hi HJ
We are thinking of all this re-org stuff but it gets kind of messy. It somes worth it to keep it haphazard as well. It kind of makes you got look harder to find what you want. Most stuff is treated as a teaser for people to join. Without members, this site would not exist. Plain and simple.

For quant researchers: RTS Chosen as Key Technology Vendor for Chinese University of Hong Kong Trading Lab

For quant researchers:

RTS Chosen as Key Technology Vendor for Chinese University of Hong Kong Trading Lab

RTS Realtime Systems Group, a leading global trading solutions provider, announced today that the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has selected the firm as the key technology provider for its state-of-the-art new trading laboratory opening tomorrow.
Equipped on the university campus with real-time trading solutions that professional traders employ globally, CUHK students will be able to gain real-world trading experience. Utilizing RTS’ low latency and algorithmic trading solutions, they can employ a variety of sophisticated strategies in a simulated, automated trading environment, including hands-on volatility spreads, complex hedging strategies and quantitative research using real data.

In the initial phase, CUHK final-year undergraduate students taking courses on options and derivatives in the coming academic year will utilize the new trading lab. Subsequently, the new facility is expected to play an increasingly important role in the finance training of the university’s MBA and Master of Science degree students, as well as those in the executive education programs.

Said Professor van Put, Adjunct Professor of the CUHK Business Faculty: “We strongly believe that our trading lab, with real-time data feeds from the major global exchanges, and assistant teachers who are professional traders, will offer our students a great chance to explore the financial markets and its traded products. This new generation of traders, risk managers and compliance officers are needed to fulfill the increasing need for qualified staff in the Chinese and Asian Pacific financial markets. We appreciate the kind support of RTS as a founding sponsor and welcome the opportunity to offer the firm’s best of breed technology in our real-time trading and training efforts.”

Alex Lamb, Executive Board Member of RTS, said: “This is a ground-breaking effort that CUHK has undertaken, and RTS is committed to ensuring its success. We are proud to partner with the university and its team of professors on enriching the trading-related academic program and ensuring that the technology reflects the latest ultra-fast tools the industry has to offer.”

In September, the Singapore Exchange and NanyangTechnologicalUniversity announced the establishment of the Centre for Financial Education in Singapore, with RTS as the key technology partner.
