Hedging and technical analyst society talk events

2 BIG EVENTS COMING UP!!

Hedging demos in C++

Monday, November 2, 2015

8:00 PM

Let me do some Hedging examples I have been working on. These are done in C++ on Linux. We can even talk about some the equations I am using. These are for futures trading to assess risk including hedging ratio, # number of contracts to use, and basis risk. Depending on my progress over the coming days, I may be able to include hedging uses for options trading as well.

This will be a Google Hangout on Youtube

Format for next trading club with ideas and tech talk

Format for next trading club with ideas and tech talk

I’m doing another ‘traders club’ this Tuesday so I figured we possibly got a decent format:

  1. 5-10 questions regarding recent non technical trading trends and ideas (these can be illuminating)
  2. Last part focusing on maybe latest development and Q&A on what I do. There seems to be a huge interest here so this is something I could address weekly.

Let me know what you think.

I am also hoping to get my live charting working as it will now import LIVE Yahoo data but it is more complicated than originally thought. I hope to do some demos with this but realize this could be my future trading system.

Straight up Facebook talk with a 16 year old about the false path to riches quant and HFT successes

Straight up Facebook talk with a 16 year old about the false path to riches quant and HFT successes

This happened within my Facebook group. I guess I am trying to educate the young ones there is no easy path to riches with this stuff. Don’t get caught up in this  trader millionaire education stuff. My question to myself is: When will they learn?

•  Bryan Downing seriosouly, this article article makes it sounds so easy. it ain’t he could be the next Einstein for all we know, just focus on learning day by day instead of a timeline, i see dozens give up after a while when they realize how hard it is, or they cannot retain their earnings cause they don’t know how to manage money over the long run.

Bryan Downing good you need to innovate, focus on learning the right technologies and math/financial methologies, it aint easy but you get there if you are motivated enough. that is a guarantee as long as you live in a capital system where you get to earn your own cash flow. it ain’t easy but it can happen

Here is the IAQF Trading Historical Backtesting Talk Summary for a quant model and strategy

Here is the IAQF Trading Historical Backtesting Talk Summary for a quant model and strategy

 

– Hold-Out Data Testing is insufficient

– 100% Overfitting is where your model will model only the sample space instead of the thing you are trying to model.

– Overfitting is a % of bias in your test data and should be computed as a probability.

– Probability of Backtest Overfitting (PBO) is used to determine how much capital to allocate to each strategy

– Maximum PBO that should be  allowed for trading is .20

according to Marcos.

– Overfitting is unlikely with very simple strategies or with complex strategies that use a lot of of data (i.e tick data for HFT) but few variables.

-Neural Nets with 20 or more variables are highly susceptible to overfitting.

– Non-linear estimators like polynomials are more susceptible to noise than linear estimators like OLS

– Symmetric combinations of out of sample test data should

be used for testing (i.e multiple hold-outs)

– Transformations can be used to remove the bias in non-normal distributions and in linear estimators (OLS)

-Neural Nets/Machine Learning can be used to find the optimal transformation needed to remove the bias from the sample space (This is known as Deep Learning)
