Questions on running an indie trading algo business

More questions on running an indie trading algo business

From time to time,I get questions about my potential training and coarse series is I am currently doing. As you know, I like to make videos to condense everything into a visual that seems to be easier for people to consume. For the set of questions I get, I even typed up my answers as well.

 

You can check out both my video and answers here

 

As I make even more videos, you will notice that I’ve been focusing a lot on this Phase 2 of my Futures and Options trading algorithms. You can see a subset on my YouTube channel but I’m not promoting them on my blog. The reason is that these are exclusive for my Quant Elite members to learn from. The simple examples are very effective and lay down the foundation to understand how to listen to the markets for forecasting.

I’m still questioning on the performance complexities of machine learning and quantitative analysis at this point. Even if I’m wrong, the course material that I’m presenting will still be very very useful in understanding the foundations of how the market flows on a daily basis. It’s just too bad some miss out on the opportunities to learn these critical elements to help optimize their trading performance.

 

Thanks for reading

Let’s talk about backtesting. I plan to have my own automated backtesting enginee implement soon as I work with a Matlab project I know of. I also talk to many 7-8 digit fund players who feel we should not even backtest or at most, put minimum amount of effort into it. I would like to talk to participants on:1. How to do it? How much time is inves…

Is an options or futures trader struggling because of misled mechanics or fundamentals? Here are some questions you can answer to help me on

Is an options or futures trader struggling because of misled mechanics or fundamentals? Here are some questions you can answer to help me on

After digging into this learning on future and options.a couple questions came up:

1. It seems these ‘educated’ futures or options traders don’t believe pricing is driven by intertemporal pricing theory. It is basic supply and demand with inventory costs factored in for deliverable storage of commodities (like oil) or financial including T-Bonds. Check out:

http://www.wcas.northwestern.edu/csio/Papers/2011/CSIO-WP-0113.pdf

 

One did not know what this is? He was educated by Options Pit which sounds like a crock. The other does not factor this into their trading strategy which I would expect impact your future pricing on contracts you buy.

2. I don’t think they even know what a speculator or hedger truly is or let alone who they are when they participate in these markets. Do they fail because they just don’t understand these basic mechanics and fundamentals on how the real futures/options markets are driven?

3. Do you calculate your risk premium when you take on calls as a speculator?

4. Are futures basically an underlying for options trading? Some seem to argue this.

Maybe this is why they fail as a futures or options traders? Who knows, help me out here huh?

Thanks

Technical questions for Infragistics about their Equity Trading App as a front end potential for Apple IOS Ipad Iphone or Microsoft Surface

Technical questions for Infragistics about their Equity Trading App as a front end potential for Apple IOS Ipad Iphone or Microsoft Surface

A technical question. I am interested in this Equity Trading Demo application you have. As I don’t yet have the source code, can this application ‘easily’ be deployed onto an Apple IOS device like Ipad or Iphone? If not, how about the Microsoft Surface ? Also, is there an embedded database as the source of data? If so, which database and what does the schema look like?

I await the answer which I will post for you all
