How to get started to do algo forex trading as a NON programmer

This was someone from my live Meetup group looking for tips:

I started looking at DukasCopy, I downloaded this 48 page User Guide. I see there is bunch of tutorials on youtube.

Note that Dukascopy does not take US residents as customers

How can a beginner get started with quant trading?

How can a beginner get started with quantitative trading?

Pretty good tips on this query found on Quora

How can a beginner with little mathematical/no prior trading experience break into quantitative analysis and algo trading?

Is it possible to teach yourself quant-level math/programming skills? How so? Which books should I read? I mainly want to do this on my own. Is that possible?

How to get started in quant finance, HFT, automated algo trading

How to get started in quant finance, HFT, automated algorithmic trading

Here is a set of tips that makes this posting really popular. It explains how to get a quantitative job or a career. Do realize it is quite old but things may have radically changed. As I hinted yesterday, I wonder if it is more competitive now to get a job. I never thought to be ever saying that to be honest.

 

If you’ve never seen it here’s some older tips

 

Why Python? Introductory Programming Resources and Environment Module 2

In my second module of my upcoming “independent trading business Algo course”, there is a safe reason why I chose Python as the language. I will definitely be covering a lot of this coming March 22 at 8 PM Eastern standard time.

 

Why Python? Introductory Programming Resources and Environment Module 2
Unit 1
Why Python for my algos and automated trading
Unit 2

Is this the magical line to get you started with Python SciPy on Ubuntu Linux?

Is this the magical line to get you started with Python SciPy on Ubuntu Linux?

See the video below to see it working:
*** This path has now been abandoned at my end. I have no futher confidence to continue with this. Enjoy Linux and Python lovers as I choose no longer to part of the party.

 

MORE UPDATES: So I replaced the VirtualBox junk with a real virtual environment called VMWare Workstatopm. What a difference so I am back to the positive. SEE

BELOW!

They may not like us any Windows as my previous attempts kind of went nowhere but Linux maybe the key. Who knew. DOn’t forget your VirtualBox for host Linux on your host.

I shall report back here if this works as instructed here:

http://www.scipy.org/install.html

sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy python-matplotlib ipython ipython-notebook python-pandas python-sympy python-nose



Because of my continued successes here, I decided to install Sypder with:  https://pythonhosted.org/spyder/installation.html
  • Requirements: sudo apt-get install python-qt4 python-sphinx
  • Installing: sudo pip install spyder
  • Updating: sudo pip install -U spyder

Finally run Anaconda with: http://askubuntu.com/questions/505919/installing-anaconda-python-on-ubuntu

wget http://09c8d0b2229f813c1b93-c95ac804525aac4b6dba79b00b39d1d3.r79.cf1.rackcdn.com/Anaconda-2.0.1-Linux-x86_64.sh

And after download is finished do:

bash Anaconda-2.0.1-Linux-x86_64.sh

 

Update: http://docs.continuum.io/anaconda/

conda update conda
conda update anaconda

You can verify your Python modules packages by doing:  http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3952513/python-get-available-modules

r outside of the interpreter with the pydoc tool: pydoc modules

ALl the steps above included pip for install of packages but no matplotlib or pandas. Let’s see…

This seems to work ok http://pandas.pydata.org/pandas-docs/stable/install.html

conda install pandas

Somehow I got all the major packages installed including pandas, numpy, and matplotlib. Does this mean I am ready to go in Python?

Once again here are all the links that come here:

How to get started in quant development and HFT?

How to get started in quant development and HFT?

Hello, I am a fresh graduate from the engineering field and have discovered that I have a huge interest in the algorithmic trading field. I guess I just wanted to ask some advice from people in the industry on what my next stepts should be. My interest mainly lays with software development. I have experience using C and Matlab.

Also if anyone happens to know of any entry level or internship positions, please let me know. That would be awesome 🙂

Thanks!

==

 

May I have try this and to see if it is really like what you say.

 

==

nice..just what I was looking for..don´t think any guide would have given me such great tips on how to start walkin this road…Thx

 

==

• I can suggest the book “The Evaluation and Optimization of Trading Strategies”. It’s a very good starting point.

 

==

Guys, how do you download the source of tradelink, do you have to download each file individually? coz i dont see any link to get all the source in one click.
Or any body has any script to do it?

 

==

In my opinion you should do very little step,and decide what you really want.
All great people before me give great advice.
If you want built automatic strategy you should start by a platform that cut the lag time to learn how built trading system. You should start to use a simple but robust platform and easy to code, I suggest to you multichart.
If you want to be a software development you can start to follow two different way of thinking.
1)Opensource platform
2)Proprietary platform
When you fell what is better for focus only to one goal.

 

=

don’t read book about trading. They are totally unusefull! If you follow the same way of all the others… you’ll get the same results.
Use your virgin brain and you culture to observe and study what’s happen on the market exactly like a researcher. Make your hipotesys and test them.
If one day you’ll be tired of trading… you could write and sell a book about trading 🙂

look into the programs these guys have. http://www.xyber9trends.com/x9t/4371.html they are some of the best that are out there.

 

==

just start coding and designing systems.. after 10,000 hours you will be ready.

Some interesting books to get you started,
1. The Trade Lifecycle (http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Trade-Lifecycle-Trading-Process/dp/0470685913/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1336688190&sr=8-1)

1. The Black Box (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Inside-Black-Box-Quantitative-Trading/dp/0470432063/ref=sr_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1336688295&sr=1-4)

1. Inside High Frequency Trading (http://www.amazon.co.uk/All-About-High-Frequency-Trading-Series/dp/0071743448/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1336688449&sr=1-1)

Also as Jay says, start coding. Write a couple of html scrapers to get stock prices from Google, BBC, Bloomberg or Reuters and test your algorithms on those. Good luck.

 

==

I’d suggest to you check NinjaTrader software, is in C++, it’s free (The non-live version) and its learning curve is pretty fast.

 

==

 
I highly recommend the following book:
http://www.amazon.com/Way-Turtle-Methods-Ordinary-Legendary/dp/007148664X

See if you can implement the strategy to trade the commodity futures and make it profitable. You will thoroughly enjoy the experience and learn a lot along the way.

If you are comfortable with C, you might consider MQL4 and perhaps MQL5 provided by MetaTrader 4 and 5 platforms respectively.

 

==

Having said that, I would MetaTrader more of an educational / prototyping tool (great charting capabilities and a fairly expressive language). You would have to be VERY thorough in selecting the MetaTrader broker(s) though if you ever get to that stage.

 

==

I wholeheartedly agree with thrcomment, you can use MQ4-5 as a learning tool, but do not use this in production.
Furthermore I recommend only to trade in instruments that are either protected by MIFID or the american equal (cannot remember this act) but you should be guaranteed the NBBO. National best bid/offer.
Basically this means do not trade FX and CFD´s in the beginning of your “career”
