Now what was mentioned above in full detail (remember all of this software came out in the last year)
 
1. Yes this backtesting framework written in Python (called backtester) is fully 100% open source for now. I have no idea what the future holds for this software since I did not create it. I just like the features which I will rank as good as Tradelink from a few years. As you know, I don’t want to officially announce I am using this but I will say the intention is there. I will be intending to put VERY EXCLUSIVE ‘bonus video’ presentations on this in the near future. Here was my first video that I posted that reached number #1 on some Reddit Python algo trading groups over the last few days.
 
https://quantlabs.net/blog/2017/08/best-back-testing-framework-for-algo-trading-in-python/
 
2 When I say, I am fundamentally changing how I look at this software called backtrader. It enables you to connect into Oanda, Interactive Brokers, and some new Virtual Charts software which looks really good. Again, I cannot promise this is the panacea of charting software, but the cost to access CME and CBOT for futures data is quite afforable. There is also a Mac version which can run via Java. Booya! I did a video review of this
 
https://quantlabs.net/blog/2017/08/review-of-back-trader-engine-with-open-source-python/
 
As you can see, if I can connect the backtester with JForex from Dukascopy as shown on my YouTube channel, you can consider me golden for this.
 
Just remember this is my last critical step before I get into live trading with Dukascopy.
 
As a result, yes more ‘bonus videos’ will be created for this. Again, they will be very very exclusive to my members in my Quant Analytics service.
 
JOIN HERE
 
Remember the first bonus video goes up in a few days on the above topic. More bonus videos will be coming later in the week.
 
In fact, if you think these may get pulled down after a short time to give me TRUE edge I would want those to download who take advantage of what should be implemented. You know I am wanting to move ahead with full trading analysis with what I have presented in the last few months.
 
Thanks for reading for this long message if you got here

Review of Modern Trader mag but why like my daily Bloomberg consumption

Review of Modern Trader but why I stick with daily Bloomberg consumption

I explain why I stick with Bloomberg pro daily consumption vs ‘hold me back, I don’t want to maximize my trading opportunity’ retail trading thinking with ‘I will be a billionaire in no time’ technical trading indicators.

Check this 12 minute video here

NOTE: I WILL BE CLOSING THE PERMANENTLY ACCESS TO MY QUANT ELITE AT THE END OF THE MONTH TUE FEB 28!!

URGENT! LAST CALL! Quant ELITE membership link will be publicly removed!

Once all of this new payment Gateway stuff is all hooked up to my new Analytics web section, I will be in a position to start charging premium rates for all the new courses and Analytics. As said before, each course is running as a standalone product which is being charged $497+ EACH! And yes, there is a huge demand for this from a premium paying target market as well. So…this means I will be in a position to remove the QUANT ELITE MEMBERSHIP LINK permanently in coming days. This will be done quietly which will remain open only for my current ELITE members.

Now this means if you want to pay $1600 in total for all these courses, you can wait until next week.

If you want to save that, join the last remaining PUBLIC access days of this ELITE membership!

I would join NOW before it is too late.

Here are the courses I speak of with full detail listed here. Remember that these will be billed at $497 minimum each as of next week!

Thanks Bryan

Important review of C++ Concurrency in Action Book review for potential HFT

 

Crucial review of C++ Concurrency in Action Book review for potential HFT

I did a lengthy review on the various options of C++ concurrency libraries you can use. Out of all the libraries I played with, I think the Standard C++ Threading library  is your BEST option as it is not considered a dependency. When you factor Intel Threading Building Blocks, I found it somewhat disappointing to use with their Flow Graph tool which is supposed to make your coding much easier. It only generated C++ code that could not be compiled. Good luck in trying to decipher it as well.

With this decent book, I got a better handle on the Standard C++ Threading library which gave me proper foundation in how to build out a high speed algorithm trading system. There are so many items to consider which this book covers. As a result, I made a 30+ minute video describing what is entailed in understand the importance of multi-threading in a C++ environment.

Check out my 30+ minute video here

 

How to build source for C++ Concurrency in Action

One big weakness I found with this book is that the coding samples were not complete. I was fortunate enough to find a GitHub repository which showed how to use the coding samples in this book.

Watch my video tutorial here

I would also like to mention I am thinking of doing a variety of ‘make up classes’ to make up for the missed tutorials in my Future/Options strategy. This includes critical topics of:
Optimal Hedging
Options on futures    
Options examples continue
Additional Options concepts with comparison to Futures    
Option pricing more examples    
Call put parity
Options trades

Coding samples will be offered in a combination of Python and C++.

I will need to do this on a Saturday only so I am trying to find out if those want it on Jan 14 or Jan 21. This will need to start early 9AM EDT.  Let me know what works for you.

This will be available to all my Quant ELITE members.

Not a member, join now!

Thanks Bryan

P.S. If you are interested in this mini workshop, I would strongly recommend to jump on this AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to properly prepare for these topics if you are unfamiliar with them.

Review of sloppy Oanda Forex Broker experience so far

Review of sloppy Oanda Forex Broker experience so far

9 days ago, our operation applied for a basic FX account with Oanda. After a second day of partial document failure, a second batch was sent out last Thursday. We waited a week and nothing! After a follow up call at 10 PM EDT, it seem we need to wait for approval for next day. As it stands, our confidence at this point shot. If we did not follow manually, our application would still be in limbo. In my mind, I would expect this from some SH*TT* overseas brokers but not Oanda. Here we are with this experience so far. I have no idea why but the confidence is not that high.

Also, we tried to tinker around further with their Python Oandapy package but still failed. Apparently, it takes 1-2 days supportresponse  for their questionable API. It seems this broker really needs to get their S*IT together before we can recommend with them confidence during this API and application experience. I wonder what the execution of orders must be really like.

It looks I may move ahead with a try with these jokers.  I would use LMAX Pro which includes Java API support with a much wider selection of currencies including Polish, Ruble, Israel, South Africa, and Turkish. LMAX do want 10K base currency but this would easily be my choice in coming months .

The Million Dollar Journey Interactive Brokers review

 

Million Dollar Journey Interactive Brokers review


Over the last week or so, I introduced my most intensive workshop yet which will focus on the API from Interactive Brokers. If you’re into programmatic/automated/algorithmic-based trading, this is the exact broker where you want to be with. In fact, all the other brokers who try to offer similar technology fail because of lackluster documentation or highly limited functionality. With Interactive Brokers, you can test all you want with their infrastructure without needing to become a client of theirs. No other broker offers this. Just last week, I had a competitor broker wanting to sponsor my Meetup groups but it seems I scared them off with this workshop offering. I think they just realized that they cannot compete with Interactive Brokers.

I have pretty well all the material together but just need help on from you. I am keeping my survey up with the times being currently offered for you:

Go here to let me know which time works for you

Now if you’re like me you may wonder if Interactive Brokers is the right automated broker for you. I found this interesting website that focuses on someone’s journey on being a millionaire via some strategy they developed for Interactive Brokers.

 

Anyways you can go here for their neutral review.

Last Monday, I did my first live broadcast on Facebook Live. The topics for this IB workshop with exact detailed video demos that were covered for this boot camp. This broadcast was over an hour with me talking in detail of each topic.

Go here to watch this broadcast video playback

Once again if interested, go here to select the time you’d be interested in for this workshop

Thanks for reading

Bryan

 

Just remember this:

 

Once in a while I like to drop hints. So here is one:

 

This Interactive Brokers workshop will become a very expensive standalone product which will be recorded with two live sessions.

All Quant Elite paying members will be able to attend this LIVE Interactive Brokers workshop
