Retail trading platform as machine learning surges ahead

 

From someone who bought the Python course about machine learning and retail trading platforms

Firstly just to let you know l am enjoying the Python Crypto course, so thank you.

No sweat. Glad you like it

I was wandering whether it is still worth learning to trade using a platform like Ninjatrader or Multicharts using the C# language. I was looking for an established platform which allows you to ‘algo trade’.

I am reading machine learning now. It seems it has and will take over the algo trading world. When you see Google Tensorflow with other tools from Google, I don’t see the retail trading platform keeping up nor implementing any of these popular tools. As a result, machine learning will be light years ahead of any retail proprietary trading platform

 Am i missing something here as you have stopped teaching C# on Ninjatrader for example?

Microsoft has become an evil company of distrust. Also Windows 10 is so badly managed with their forced updates so I switched to Linux.

Will retail trading compete against quant HFT machine learning AI

Will retail trading compete against HFT quant machine learning AI


Interesting question from Long

I have a question about trading,

Can small retail traders really compete with  large institutions in the future?

Will retail trading disappear in the future, because of AI & Machine Learning,Quant, HFT etc.? ( of course, bucket shops will always exist in some form or another for retail traders)

I think everyone can  invest, but trading is too technical for most people. 

Thank you!.

Long

See what I said in my video

It is quant and retail trading newsletter readers like you that make the job better and more innovative

I just responded one of my newsletter subscribers like you:

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. ….

 
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….See more

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.

How to overcome limits of retail trading software to develop trading ideas fast for juicy profit

video

This was a question from one of you, my Newsletter Subcribers, who was part of the EXCLUSIVE LIVE webinars

Hi Bryan, thanks again for the webinar you held last night, it was very interesting. 

I wish I started to learn math for building Algo since the beginning of my journey. I would have saved much time.

During the chat…, I mentioned the need to build an approach. What I meant by approach was a basic sequence of logical steps in order to validate trading ideas.

I found very interesting one of the book published from Emilio Tomasini & Urban Jaeckle titled: “Trading Sytems / A new approach”

Since I started coding with Mt4 I thought that I could replicate the same process, but I was wrong:


– Memory limit for files over 4Gb (I cannot test more than 2-3 years data with tick data)

– Walk Forward Analysis tool missing

– Parameter space optimizer missing

– Monte Carlo Simulator missing

– Portfolio testing missing

 

For poor average John it becomes difficult to deal with all these issues without spending a fortune on proprietary platform. On the top of that you still do not know what you should with that software.

At this point I amwondering if the wiser choice I  can take would be to sign up to a university to study Finance and forget about trading for the coming years. 

I look forward to hearing from you.  See more 

I address all these in my video link here:  See more
