Here are some topics for the event

Understanding your own coding is most predictable. I have many folks who lost thousands dues to bad programmers. This is what I have experienced among folks like yourself.

  1. Here is what I will cover to build your ‘baby algo trading system’:
  2. 1. It depends on your asset class and broker of choice.
  3. 2. Sample way to download data with 3rd party solutions ranging from Excel to Java ion source source scanners.
  4. 3. How to use a Python package to do quick analysis using a popular technical analysis library

Reminder Event: Build a baby automated trading system with algos require streaming

REMINDER ABOUT TONIGHT!

This is a very typical conversation I have with online strangers who want to control their own future. This will help those automated trading with altos require streaming.

A Twitter followed opened up with this conversation which created the idea to do this webinar topic.

I am thinking it may be better to pay someone to do the programming? I just don’t have the time. Do all algos require streaming from IQFEED or a third party service. I am looking at kairos have you heard of the program and any thoughts/ recommendations?

Ok I am very motivated . Sounds like python is the way to go. I have tried IBridgePy but didn’t get Far….My system is very simple .

Understanding your own coding is most predictable. I have many folks who lost thousands dues to bad programmers. This is what I have experienced among folks like yourself.

Thanks. How long would you say it will take someone like myself to get a system up  and running and what services do you offer to get me to where I need to be?

It depends on your motivational level. It could take a couple of months with Python. If you try with a lower level like C++ or Java, it would be probably years but most people give up on it.

First glimpse of fully automated trading system in crypto currency

First glimpse of fully automated trading system in crypto currency

Here it is. Everything seems to be working end to end on this system. I can capture some incredible moves of 5% in less than 15 minutes.

Some further discussion found on my private Telegram group:

… let me build the thing so i can focus on metrics. sharpe ratios are useless as they are only used in industry. what matters is your winning ration of all open positions…

what matters is what goes into your pocket. my hope is to get 66% winning ratio so i can leverage and scale position sizing from there…

i can easily open this up to well over $10M if i wanted but i am not willing to take on that kind of down side potential

HT:
Apparently running afund is a full time job You raise money and don’t get to trade anymore.

That’s why partners are needed who have a great network….

that is correct with lawyers breathing down your back

f**k it

Can u develop an algo trading system in an hour ?

I explain this in a Facebook QuantLabsnet page.

In short, I plan to add some exclusive content for my Elite members

I will post all the details in an upcoming event on my Quantlabsnet Facebook page

As always, you follow me on that page for live notification alerts.

I also did another topic on why I focus on hosting my own courses vs being with something Udemy. Also, I answered a question on my thoughts on machine learning here.

Overview of backtrader with Python 3 for a complete algo trading system

There are numerous part of this video but I try to explain how to install backtrader which I got running on Python.This can also be used in conjunction to build a out a complete algo trading system.  This project clearly is growing quickly to replace Quantopian and maybe Quantstart. It is 100% in Python with some great example Quick Start guides to get you up and running. I am sure the community is up to par by now.

Oanda? Really so here is why ?

Also, I explain how I may go back to Oanda( ugh and yuck) as a quick and easy gateway for forex or CFD trading. This  project will ease the intro to a forex algo trading system with 100% Python without the complex extra process of including Java with the JForex platform from Dukascopy. Also, it seems American residents really only have Oanda as the only remaining choice to use Python. It sucks I know but this includes the huge market interest for using the 100% Python option for an algo trading system. Just remember Dukascopy does not allow USA customers so I can only use Oanda for now. My opinions of Oanda has not changed. I just wish there was a better option to implement.

Also, the Python backtrader project support Oanda and my eventual migration to Interactive Brokers for eventual options/futures. Always remember this asset class is used by institutions and is recession proof as well.

Spoiler alert

To save you time, I also tried to install a GUI project built for backtrader called Omega UI.

https://github.com/OmegaTrading/OmegaUI

Most of the video focuses on this attempt but this project clearly needs a tutorial or document to get it running. This portion was a chunk of time wasted so don’t bother.

Note: I plan to only use backtrader for the broker connection only as explained above. I don’t plan to change the strategies I have been working over the last number of months

I will be adding the productive learning to my course as explained below

DURATION –

OVERVIEW – As Bitcoin ruled the financial news cycle in recent times, many have had a peak interest in cyrpto currency along with systematic trading. There are many advanced trading research techniques including machine learning, AI, or quant. This course was created for the ‘newbie’ who has a basic understand in popular programming languages but easy to learn such as Python. A focus of technical analysis was chosen since it is popular among retail traders. It is also seems to offer more predictable results as opposed to harder to learn concepts such as quant or machine learning. In essence, a simpler with more effective techniques were purposely chosen to get someone with basic programming knowledge (eg. Python) to get ramped up faster! It is very hopeful any student will become more confident in their capabilities to complete this without the unnecessary complexities that usually hold back their success.

TARGET AUDIENCE – Python programmers (including data scientists etc.) who want to understand algo techniques and apply them into a primitive automated trading system. Pro or Retail traders who have an interest in learning the basics of Python and systematic trading.

KEY FEATURES

  • Technical analysis library package use for strategy idea development

APPROACH –

Videos and sample Python source code scripts are made available at time of presentation. Note that scripts are meant to to be small and simple for easiest consumption. Advanced techniques are stripped out to ensure completion of this course. This can be used as a launching to pad to understand the components of a primitive algo trading system In short, it is devised in a way to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN

  • The major components in any trading system
  • Broker and asset class options
