Math algos and machine learning keys to your success in trading

Math algos and machine learning real keys to your success in trading

Many people need to understand what makes you really successful in trading to get that juicy lifestyle we all crave. Instead of following so-called “gurus”, it is quite foolish to follow these “lottery minded candlestick chart followers.” Over 90% of them get killed all the time. I had somebody query about this so I responded by my usual way in a video.

 

Check it out here and please send me some feedback

 

As said over the coming weeks I will be hosting a new LIVE series in the building out of my new Python automated/algo trading system. I will be very excited to take live questions and answers during these sessions. These are only going to be available for my Quant Elite members. I’ll try not to put a limit on the number of people for this but I do expect small crowds for optimal experience for all involved. The important take away is I will probably only be doing this one time but I’ll let you know as I gear it up in the coming weeks. After my survey, I’m nailing down convenient times for all people who are employed and are busy on weekends. Thanks to those who responded.

 

In the meantime, please consider joining my annual membership which cost no more than your cellular phone bill on a monthly basis.

 

Check it out here

 

I have lots to offer.

 

Thanks and hopefully I will see you on the other side

More long term trading success vs failure?

More long term trading success vs failure?

So I sent this out yesterday:

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2015/05/hedge-fund-is-your-1-path-to-a-billion/

I got a response via someone in my newsletter:

Bryan, this is very moving statement. I’m confident that the community you created will support you in  many future successes and few failures.

I think we will have more failures at the beginning which hopeful long term success after our initial testing. This is usual but this is the real reason why i will start betting instead of trading. We call it baby steps instead of going big in the outset to potentially blow out your account early. Let’s hope I am right for the long term successes.

Hedging seems to be a critical part of success for either futures or options trading

Hedging seems to be a critical part of success for either futures or options trading. Do traders REALLY understand this for the profit or loss?

As I am learning this current course, I am leaning towards a more fundamental view of the market versus a technical approach. It seems to be successful as a futures trader, you may need to understand the fundamental difference between cash positions and future positions while hedging. You long for both positions which will determine your success by the direction of your basis between the two pricing points. Do people consider this at all? It seems basis direction is critical on how your futures or options pricing plays out. It also depends if you’re longing or shorting the market with whatever futures contract you choose. I’ve hinted in a previous post that transaction or storage costs are never factored which will eat into your profit potential but no one seems to consider this.

No one either is consider their net outcome on a weight or unit basis of their trade. It is also driven by the number of contracts you take for what the exchange will allow on the commodity you choose. Do people actually ever calculate this? Perplexed where were people seem to focus on more complicated mathematical models that you really need to. Even on a futures FX contract the spotmarket plays a critical role. It is not a simple fact of watching charts and hoping for the best. Also for FX future contracts, do people ever consider the amount charged on a 1% price change versus what the contract offers in total cost?

People may not really understand what a risk adverse hedger is especially from an optimal hedging point of view? Have they ever taken some form pricing Theory pertaining to portfolio risk? Do people understand what a positive indifference curve is for a risk averse investor? Do they actually forecast multiple portfolios to figure out the risk aversion cash position versus future positions? Do know they even know what an optimal hedge is as there seems to be some mathematical magic happening here to calculate the sort of things but no wonder retail or day traders could get slaughtered without this knowledge. There is a lot of stats going on here.

Do people really understand what diversification really means? I mean where you can substitute the futures market as a way to calculate your true risk against future cash positions in your trading.

More importantly when you say risk reward based upon the amount you risk considering based on the amount you are willing to hedge. Did you know that you could calculate this optimal hedging not just algebraically but graphically as well with the frontier curve laid on top of that indifference curve. I’m not sure if people know about this stuff. You can also calculate your expected rate of return against your risk.

Pretty powerful info that could be neglecting calculating your future positions during your trading.

Goldman Sachs SecDB saved them in 2008? Is graph search algo like NEWSQL VoltDB enough to use mimic their trading success?

Goldman Sachs SecDB saved them in 2008? Is graph search algo like NEWSQL VoltDB enough to use mimic their trading success?
Refer to further research

The big takeway out of this is there is a potential graph search algo which seems to be to be TRUE secret sauce of the whole thing.
Also, VoltDB could be a close cousin which could be used as a part of good risk management database. Let me know what you think.

Graph search is most likely part of SecDB:

The 3 rules of success with an algorithmic trading platform

Hi there,

Which algorithmic trading platform do you want to use?

Do you use Ninja Trader? Metatrader? Tradestation? Or some other retail investment and trading brokerage trading platform?

If so, that’s bad news. Did you know …

* Most of these platforms don’t really give you an advantage over anyone else?

* Your broker is nothing more than a glorified maket maker?

* Your broker probably sends out orders to trade against your order?

* Your trading broker probably wants you to be unprofitable because they’re taking the other side of your trades?

That’s why you’re probably not doing as well as you’d hoped in the markets. Most traders lose money over time. So why are you using what most traders use?

So I’ll lay it out as clearly as I can: any of these trading platforms and trading brokers are nothing but a racket to make you think that you’re profiting but most likely they’re holding you back from your real true profits. You really are trading against the wind.

In order to really profit

1. You need to be unique with your approach and strategies

2. Your trading algos need to run through an alternative trading platform (preferably an open transparent non-blackbox trading platform)

3. You have to ensure your models are proprietary and secret

That’s what gives you your edge. And Quantlabs.net is the only site that can give it to you.
We don’t sell any trading platforms. We have no vested interest in any stock brokerage. We only provide a community of private members who are very good at what they do — most actually work in the banking industry!

It’s our own secret society. You can share information and soak up lessons like a sponge, and yet no one else knows exactly how you’re trading.

French Hedge Funds Say AIFMD Is A Success, But Regulator Warns Financial Stability Board’s Involvement In Regulations

French Hedge Funds Say AIFMD Is A Success, But Regulator Warns Financial Stability Board’s Involvement In Regulations

Paris, French hedge funds and the securities regulator AMF believe the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) will – more than UCITS – boost investor confidence in hedge funds and pave the way for potentially significant asset growth. But further steps are required to fully gain back the trust from institutions.

Participants at Opalesque’s third France Roundtable, held in April 2012 in Paris and sponsored by Lyxor Asset Management and Eurex, believe the AIFMD will have a major impact on the hedge fund industry in Europe. Some of the largest funds of funds, like Amundi Alternative Investments, have already shifted their model from offshore to a 100% onshore, European regulated framework. This includes a re-domiciliation of most wrappers (i.e. the funds of hedge funds themselves) as well as their underlying fund structures to onshore jurisdictions. Amundi says the firm is already now fully ready for the arrival of the AIFMD, and explains that this shift was mainly motivated by concerns from their French institutional clients.

The Opalesque Roundtable Series highlights fundamental developments within the global hedge fund industry, a full archive with over 70 Roundtable scripts can be accessed here: http://www.opalesque.com/Archive-Roundtable.html.

Patrice Bergé-Vincent, head of the Asset Management Regulation Division at French securities regulator AMF, pointed out that over the next years the industry will come to a clearer distinction between UCITS and AIFM. UCITS products will be more directed to retail investors and AIFs will be reserved for the most sophisticated investors. However, he warned that the increased focus and activities of the Financial Stability Board (FSB) around market regulations may soon turn into a new regulatory paradigm that could be a “new concern for the asset management industry going forward.”
