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.

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.

Quandl Book Review: Financial Analytics with R

Quandl Book Review: Financial Analytics with R

This is what they just sent me today

There’s a new source in town for those in the finance world who want to learn R and it’s a good, old-fashioned book called Financial Analytics with R: Building a Laptop Laboratory for Data Science. This book artfully contextualizes an education on R with relevant examples from recent financial events. To that end, we’d argue that this book will get you up to speed on R faster than the documentation on CRAN (sorry, CRAN!) because it is more focused for the financial analyst. We’re adding it to our bookshelf here at Quandl. Are you?

“I hope you have had a nice Holiday weekend. I was one of those members on the fence about Elite membership until I happily took the plunge in October and never looked back.

Bloomberg Quant Nov 2015 Seminar review

 

Bloomberg Quant Nov 2015 Seminar review

From NYC Contact on his review:

 

Bloomberg Quant Seminar Nov 2015 Review: 1) Tradable estimates for Historical Volatility (HV) use a variance type calculation plus dynamic hedging strategy Vol Est = (Xt – X0)^2 + Dynamic Trading Tradable Vol = (High-Low)^2 [ ((High + Low)/2-Fixed Price level)/High-Low] Stopping times in computing the HV should match the Hedging (Dynamic Trading) stopping times. 2) Use Bagging to reduce Decision Tree variance within a Random Forest 3) Discussion with Peter Carr/Nassim Taleb You can hedge on price or time or delta delta is the best but is generally not quoted, instead it is calculated. Examples of quoted delta: ATM Straddle Delta or Risk Reversal Delta ( buy a call + sell a put) 4) Discussion with Macros Lopez De Prado Even if you have a huge sample space (10 years of historical tick data) with a small trading window (1 minute) plus a fixed number of parameters (20) in your machine learning algorithm. You still need to track the total number of experiments/strategies performed although you will be able to perform many more experiments before you end up overfitting the data. P/L dissection should include the first 4 moments. i.e. Directional P/L, Volatility P/L, Jump P/L, Fat Tail P/L

Successful algo trading book review in Python from Quantstart

Success algo trading book review in

Python from Quantstart

I believe I have formulated some decent opinions on the trilogy
of prototyping programming languages for trading idea research.
After reading the excellent book called “Successful Algo Trading”
in Python from Quantstart.com. I made a 20 minute video explaining
my thoughts of this book with a way to implement into my training
workflow done in Matlab. Bonus: many people don’t know but Matlab
can call Python scripts. Booyah!
