Algoriz builds a trading algo with no coding required

Algoriz builds your trading algo with no coding required

This is just a lazy way to algo trade. Imagine you have true push button technology that will change your life overnight? Does that exist? Right….for a little while anyhow. You really need to understand the ‘under the hood’ philosophy to trade (so see below). When the market turns, and oh they will, you will be left with a panicked market environment who lose money. Remember those fund days in 2008 when many lost their retirement funds? Glory days indeed but they will be coming back at some point.

Here is that push button technology that will NOT change your life

But I got this as an alternative:

So if you want to learn the foundation and technical skills, you know where to come:

Required Books on Math & Stats for Data Science

Required Books on Stats & Math for Data Science

If you’re like me who is weak in math should pay attention to this. Someone completed an entire list for those that are interested in the study of data science. This appears also to be applicable to the world of quantitative analysis as well.

As I move into more advanced econometrics of what drives global Forex markets, I am also learning to know what will give me trading edge in coming months. What happens when I start automating all of this stuff? What will my trading edge be then?

 

As you know starting this Tuesday I will be revealing my Python coding techniques to my first strategy for arbitrage and pair trading. Due to it being highly sensitive, all of this material will be removed in a few months. When I say it will be removed I mean it will be permanently removed. This will be part of a series of warnings that I’ll be putting out.

 

I start on Tuesday in 2 days. I have been emailing about this since January which is part of my algo trading course series.

Matlab Simulink could be a perfect way to build logic for your HFT kill switch which will be required by federal regulators like SEC

Matlab Simulink could be a perfect way to build logic for your HFT kill switch which will be required by federal regulators like SEC
Does your system have it? What about your future one. This makes me very comfortable knowing I can easily build this into my new future trading models with Matlab and Simulunk.
By the way, this is not an advertisement for Matlab.
Also, those new federal requirements are coming down the pipes so be aware of it ok?

What’s a good range of effort required to implement a feed handler?

What’s a good range of effort required to implement a feed handler?

—-

a lot depends on a technology you are using and exchange you are connecting to.
Have you implemented feed handler before?
Do you want to come up with a generic framework you want to reuse with another exchange or do you want to have very specific implementation?
Is exchange using an interface you are familiar with or you will have to learn the protocol and specifics as you go?
is there a test connection you can play with during your implementation?

—-
If you already have a framework in place for handling UDP price feeds and the new feed is similar to one you have done before, it could be as little as 3 days.

If you are starting from scratch and the price feed is an API that has awkward semantics, it could take a month, not counting the time to get network connectivity.

—–

Hope to find someone that has written them before, but some exchanges will undoubtedly be initial efforts, learning the protocol on the way. I’m not sure how many will offer a sandbox connection. Yes, it should be as reusable as possible, so the subsequent feeds will hopefully be less work.

—–

Is this for the startup in your profile? If so, why write your own feed handlers? You aren’t latency sensitive.

Just take the feeds from a vendor who normalizes everything for you. Feed handlers are a pain to write and a pain to maintain, especially once you have more than a couple.

—–

No, it’s a new startup, though still not latency sensitive. Whose feed handlers are you using?

I write my own feed handlers because I am latency sensitive. But there are lots of vendors selling feed handlers, someone from SR Labs just sent me some info last week, or you could talk to the guys at www.tradingphysics.com

—-

what exchanges do you need?
What data types (trades, book, OI, etc) do you need for your stratgies to work properly?
Are you interested in maintaining your own connections to the exchanges or you’d rather have single pipe that gets you all of the data you need normalized?

—-

Starting from scratch, so only supporting simple trades in the early going, but eventually covering complex events involving multiple exchanges. Cost rules, so single pipe initially, shifting to individual exchange connections when we can manage the overhead.

—-

In addition to companies has mentioned you can check us out as well at https://develop.cqg.com/fixfast/. This may allow you to get going quickly and efficiently while you are working your way up.

—-

I didn’t realize that CQG had the offering that  was mentioned, just glancing at it, it looks like that might be a good solution.

Unless you evolve into caring about latency, you may well find that a single pipe satisfies your needs effectively long-term.

—–

You might take a look at the Open Market Data Initiative – some open source direct exchange feed handlers there –http://openmarketdata.org/. And also commercial offerings of course from likes of SR Labs, SpryWare, Volante. TS-Associates has a handler for Interactive Data’s consolidated feed. Tune into low-latency.com to keep current.

—–

Also check out Object Trading (www.objecttrading.com) – we have developed an exchange connectivity software layer which normalises your connection to the exchange. Thus you write once to our interface (via FIX or our native API) and we’ll translate it to the relevant exchange – there’s also the “other stuff” in there such as pre-trade risk management and real-time drop copy to satisfy your clearer.

Our market coverage is primarily derivatives, where we cover all the Tier 1 and Tier 2 markets.. we’re also growing in equities

Head First series books still the best way to learn C# or Java. Required for quant development

Head First series books still the best way to learn C# or Java. Required for quant development

I have been noticing over the last few months the demand of .NET jobs in quant has been rising. Also, I have done enough analysis on various quants commercial and open source projects, the majority of them are done using .NET languages like C# or Visual C++ with maybe a VB.NET front end. It seems this Microsoft platform is on the rise as compared to Linux technologies and languages.

Anyhow, I am needing to review my rusty C# skills which will help me quickly review these commercial and open source quant code packages. I can say without hesitation, the Head First series is still the best for learning a programming language. All the graphics and sense of humour take away the dryness I find with all those techie heavy books like from Dietel. Boring. Anyhow, Head First does cover all the majors aspects of languages like C# and Java. It might be a bit condescending but who cares right? As long as you are learning in a quick pace as opposed to reading it over a hundred times because you are falling asleep.

I also find the contributors and authors are top notch at what they know. Many are consultants and tech team leads which brings lots of authority at what they bring. Also, I find they are more hip as compared to some stuffy university professor who has not stepped outside of his lab in thirty years.

Anyhow, I wanted to bring this up as it might be important for those needing to learn a new major programming language is they should look into the Head First series. It is also important for them to understand that both C# and Java have similar syntax but either is  a very important programming language to learn if you plan to get into the quant field.
Unfortunately, there is no Head First C++ that I have seen. It seems to be in heavy demand though.
