Coding Deep Learning for Beginners while using Oanda data

It is rare for me to get excited about resources to learn machine learning where math is not your top skill. All forex and CFD  instruments using Oanda data is listed below. This series seems to include an assumption you know nothing about the math behind these concepts. You may want to check out this article if you are ever interested in learning about deep learning.

All forex and CFD  instruments using Oanda data

 

I have included the list in a text file.

Remember I struggle using between Interactive Brokers Oanda for forex. I could use Interactive Brokers to execute order using Oanda data which is out of synch. The other idea I am think is using Oanda data and executing the trades. Just remember my views of Oanda are not positive as they have market making. I want to get that Oanda account to $2000 so I can move over to Interactive Brokers for their data access. I just want to show you build everything from nothing.

Hardest part of trading is optimal mark entry. I am tweakting my automated watchlist so I made video on this.

I am not going to showcase videos like this anymore but I want to stress the difficulty of find these optimal market indicators.

Sample test different technical indicators for optimal forex market entries

Sample test different technical indicators for optimal forex market entries

There seems to be no spread or volume different when testing popular pairs vs volatile

Posted to my Telegram private group:

Here are my tests so far for a late friday EDT. for dukascopy, the 2 most volatile pairs (e.g. ZARJPY and USDZAR) vs more popular pairs like EURUSD and USDJPY have the similar spread cost and volume is very similar across the board. This is all within Dukascopy. I will have a video posted later today on it. I think I may need to retest on a Weds afternoon to see if there is a differennce but I wanted to test this thoery on random trading day with no news shocks.

Let me test this Oanda Python forex trading package

I like what Interactive Brokers have their currencies but the supported listed is really limited compared to Oanda. Why limit your choice? There are some wild swings I want my trading to be part of like Turkish Lira, Egpyt, etc.

Let me try out this package to see what comes out of this

Options Future Equation class library with Test Client

I resume my ‘Phase 2’ of my Algo Trading Course Series I started in March. After completing the “Infrastructure Building Blocks” and “Equity Arbitrage/Pair Trading”, it is time to focus on learning both futures and options trading. Get more details here:
https://quantlabs.net/blog/python-algo-course-series-for-your-indie-automated-trading-business/

This new Phase that will be taught is a 24-week section which covers many fundamental aspects of these asset classes. We will focus on examples as we mirror my favorite UC Davis course that focuses on fundamental analysis. I also provide both C++ and Python coding samples throughout this course. The main idea of these presentations is to learn further on these topics outside of the course material. Our topic for this day is:
Options Future Equation class library with Test Client A couple of notes: I will not be teaching content live anymore after this as I move into an analytics service in a few months.

You also need to be a Quant Elite member to attend this. Signup here:
