Math skills vs stage of life: Excel spreadsheet to python

Is this true? I think so if you ain’t programming. I have never seen anything as popular as thing. Must ring true if you end in a spreadsheet like Microsoft Excel or even in python.

Most traders and analysts use spreadsheets such as Excel. It makes we wonder how useful they would be if they decided to go to Python.

Go to Python?

This may go somewhere. They even teach kids Python skills. Why are you not learning? This is especially true with your algorithmic/automated trading. We are wrapping up our live component  of this course this week.

Python Algo Trading Infrastructure with Crypto Currency

As you know the pricing of this course will be going in up in about 1 week. I will keep discounts in place if you want to transact in crypto currency like Bitcoin.  Ask away how we set that up!!

Thanks Bryan

Python programming skills lead demand for jobs

Python programming skills lead demand for jobs

Software programming skills in demand for jobs

Dice.com which is the biggest technical recruiting website in America has posted the hottest technical skills to have for jobs. Personally I was quite happy to see that Python is “hot”  as well other ones I would’ve expected to be in the same classification. Unfortunately this was not the case.

 

I have posted a brief video to explain this

Demo of pair trading watchlist in Python

 

I would like to add that I have demonstrated the “nerve center” of this new trading system through a automated watchlist for any pairs that could be entered or exited in the markets. I go over the use of no SQL Mongo DB as well. Unfortunately I have to forward all my Quant Elite members to a 45 minute detailed coding walk-through with Python source code.

 

Check out this quick demo of my watchlist for automated trading

 

As said all of this is available for my Quant Elite members.

 

Go here for immediate access and details

 

I have also hinted that this will be part of my I will be starting this NEW course series in a few weeks. Plus you don’t want to miss that with the live interactive question-and-answer sessions. So be on the lookout for the upcoming announcements via this email newsletter.

 

Thanks for reading

Software programming skills in demand for jobs

This is the ultimate real time gauge for your IT skills. This is from a large IT recruitment site. I was sort of surprised what is not ‘hot’ but Python remains that way.

R is not so much nor Java or C++..

HFT skills for Citadel Technology

HFT skills for Citadel Technology

I can confirm that even Citadel is using both C++ and Python combo as another leading Chicago HFT operator. I also find itinteresting they are looking for NOSQL experience so maybe they are migrating to it from their core data handling.

 

This is tough to find Citadel jobs unlike Jump.

This is very similar to what I posted with Jump Trading as well
