Screw China econometric data and Quandl?

Screw China econometric data and Quandl?

After trying to download FREE data from China for PMI and other econometric, it seems I have no real incentive. With both FRED and Eurostats freely available, I see now have no reason to track China. With their government not to be trusted with their latest shenanigans wanted to be a free capitalist economies are now true morons. They will never achieve to be who they want to be. In fact, there is talk of them being booted out of their sought after SDR program. A a result, I am not going to kill myself.

There is also this site from the government:

http://data.stats.gov.cn/english/swf.htm?m=turnto&id=1

Many don’t trust it. I am also not going to automate my system to have to login to get data. As said, FRED and Euro Stats is freely available with log in needed.

To add that Quandl the free data source does not appear to work anymore. I am using Python as instructed at their GitHub repo.

https://github.com/quandl/quandl-python

Using PyCharm, I now get this error:

  error = (“Unknown response ({r}). Please copy and paste the error output, and the file you are running, and email us at connect@quandl.com. We will help you fix your error ASAP.”.format(str(resp.status_code)))
KeyError: u’r’

It seems you need an API key which I always had so I plugged it in. As a result, it does not work as advertised. A bug? Or do I need to now pay?

As I try to download from

https://www.quandl.com/data/SGE/CHNMPMI-China-Manufacturing-PMI

There is that dreaded:

I also sent out questions to Quandl over a month ago. No response. So they are not to be used as a ‘trusted’ source. $185 per month is pretty steep so I ain’t moving forward with it.

In summary, no China no Quandl. Let’s move onto the free source like FRED and Euro Stats as I have demoed before.

How last look can screw your FOREX trading?

 

How last look can screw your FOREX trading?

Boy, the valuable things you learn in trading. Check this out:

You may have heard the term ‘last look’ being mentioned by traders and been confused as to what is meant by this term. Last Look simply refers to the ability that liquidity providers have to reject an order even when the order matches the liquidity provider quoted price. Essentially, the liquidity gets one last chance or look to decide whether they want to take the other side of an order.

The fact that liquidity providers can give traders orders a last look before accepting the order is something that frustrates many traders, as it can often result in a certain amount of slippage. As the order will then be executed at the next best price. If your order is rejected by a number of different liquidity providers you may experience a significant amount of slippage.

One broker that does not do this is LMAX!

The unique LMAX Exchange business model addresses the fundamental changes happening within the FX market, and solves two key industry problems:

  • Lack of transparency of the true cost of OTC traded FX
  • Lack of precise, consistent & reliable FX trade execution

LMAX Exchange delivers conflict free, neutral execution and transparent cost of trade to both, the buy-side and sell-side. LMAX Exchange is not a market-maker, and unlike some ECNs, the open order book is driven by streaming, non ‘last look’ limit orders supplied by top tier banks and institutional liquidity providers.

https://www.lmax.com/exchange

is Interactive Brokers go not no  last look? This is all I could find. Anyone out there know? 

With that said, Global Prime Au, IC Markets, FxOpen Au or UK ECN accts, RubixFx are good for retail trading. Interactive Brokers if you don’t need mt4.

Screw Hollywood Top Earning Actor see The Fabulous Life of Billion Dollar Wall Street Hedge Fund Ballers

HI there

Here are some videos you should watch if you think trading has no potential to the rich & famous:

Why people are Broke? The New American Dream . How traders work like poker players to build lucrative wealth

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/07/why-people-are-broke-the-new-american-dream-how-traders-work-like-poker-players-to-build-lucrative-wealth/

Note there is a part 2 to this video talking about trading. Interesting indeed.

Youtube video The Fabulous Life of Billion Dollar Wall Street Hedge Fund Ballers


https://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/07/youtube-video-the-fabulous-life-of-billion-dollar-wall-street-hedge-fund-ballers/

The takeaway to this video is how one top hedge fund managers can earn more money then an entire top grossing film. SAD for Hollywood. Note this video is old but the potential is definitely still there.

Here is a sample how to get there:
