Chat with Traders popular topics of day trading and lucrative forex career

I find it strange how these are more popular videos on Chat With Traders despite the the awesome automation/systematic based episodes.

Also, I would like to thank Geofff from San Francisco who helped out as well. He addressed a lot of interesting facts about fixed income and bond trading with automated trading. Things I never knew!

What is the best time for future FREE online meetings for quant trading strategy and HFT development topics?

Hi there

I sent this to my QLN Premium Membership yesterday but I want to hear your thoughts.
I have  discovered some incredibly innovative set of C++ libraries which makes the platform truly exciting. There is a name for this thing but nothing is public yet. You can follow my progress by subscribing to the QuantLabs channel at www.Youtube.com/quantlabs
As a result, I want to step up the use of GotoMeeting. This correspondence is being sent to everyone globally but below is an important link which helps me get a decent of schedule future online meetings.
I am wanting to bring together many of you are based in various parts of the world but there are so many time zones but it is always a problem. What I am needing to understand are the best time zones to work with? Or is it better just to split it up into an Asia versus North America/Europe set  of groups? Let me know. Or do weekends work better for people?
Big thanks for your valued input,
Bryan

Any online Meetup presenters who got a new topic for online webinar?

Any online Meetup presenters who got a new topic for online webinar?
Hey to all potential Presenters
For those wanting to do a presentation on quant, R, Matlab related, please get in touch. I know there is a bunch of people but it looks like I need to wait for potential local politicians to give me access to host events in Toronto’s Metro Hall downtown. This could take a while or may not even happen at all. In the meantime, I would like to continue with presentations online with Goto Meeting. Got an idea? Let me know so we can schedule something for Aug or Sep.
Thanks

“Statistical and Machine-Learning Data Mining” – Is the topic a mixed metaphor?

“Statistical and Machine-Learning Data Mining” – Is the topic a mixed metaphor?

 

==

Welcome to the Department of Redundancy Department… sort of.
One could argue that statistical learning, machine learning, and data mining are three ways of looking at the same thing. It is true that machine learning technically includes logic programming AI, but when most people talk about the three subjects, they’re usually talking about the same thing.
As a metaphor…? Since technically machines cannot truly learn the way humans do, by not only changing “software” (thoughts) but “hardware” (neural connections), it may of may not be a metaphor, depending on what you are considering…

 

==

I would like to start with a few personal experiences. I began research during the early 00’s and attended a conference related to Statistics. The debate between Cox and Breiman was told to me, but the exact details is something which I was not familiar. Then I remember a vintage statistician, I mean immature, declared that topics like Data Mining and Machine Learning should not be allowed to grow and that “Statistics” must dominate everything. At that moment, as a beginner, I wondered the necessity of “Domination”.Next, I recently attended a conference in which an eminent statistician from India initiated the beginning of the conference and, as expected, launched an attack on the Machine Learning community declaring how they violate the principles of randomization, etc. Using “Statistical Learning” concepts such as dimensional convergence, etc, he convinced the audience that “Statistics”, and not “Machine Learning”, is the way forward. The consequence of such rhetoric is that beginners get intimidated by eminent and never bother to learn what “Machine Learning” is all about. As a response to the rhetoric, I had prepared a presentation slide urging the audience to have a sane look at other disciplines and read the books of Hastie, Tibshirani, and Friedman (2008) and then arrive at appropriate conclusion. I was not aware of the book “Statistical and Machine-Learning Data Mining: Techniques for Better Predictive Modeling and Analysis of Big Data” by Prof. Ratner (who has started this discussion). Of course, I was not allowed to present the slides. In that very same conference there was a presentation on some work related to “Data Mining”. Though the slides were beautiful and covered almost every terminology used in the subject, the problem there was the absolute lack of any “Mathematical detailing”. I mean that the concepts were presented in a “Black Box” form and not as a scientific tool. In this subcontinent, on most occasions, all data mining methods are presented as “Software Utilities” and not as scientific tools.A coincidence is that like Prof. Ratner, I am also a lot impressed by the late Tukey’s 1962 article “The Future of Data Analysis” and the EDA work. Will join the discussion later. Thanks.

New C++ topic added for Dec 12 Meetup, future Meetups for 2012, and new ideas needed!!

New C++ topic added for Dec 12 Meetup, future Meetups for 2012, and new ideas needed!!

This Meetup takes place in North York (Toronto) Canada

Hey all:

I have added as a comment to the Meetup coming up on MONDAY Dec 12. This is a reminder about it.

http://www.meetup.com/quant-finance/events/42092262/

I will be adding a conversation on building a basic Visual C++ trading application. I am currently doing this now  so I will discuss the different components of my primitive system. I will also reveal a decent Forex British trading broker who appear to fit my requirements for minimum deposit and API trading capabilities. They are also partially backed by Goldman Sachs so they are definitely legit!!  Ensure to make notes on this Meetup as I will not be repeating this Meetup or posting any documents on this.

As for a venue at the North York library, we are responsible to for setting everything up ourselves. This includes basic chair and table set up and tear down. If you can, please help out by showing up around 6:15 to help out. Thanks in advance for those that help out. Would there be any volunteers who want to handle camera recording of this as well? I provide all the hardware for this.

*** I also need to know if you are attending ASAP to ensure seating.

I have been granted future Meetups at the Ryerson Business building so expect more Meetups downtown with better facilities. I do intend to do two Meetups a month in North York and downtown. I will also be focusing the group more on algorithms/analytics for 2012. If you got an idea for presentation, hit me up via email or post on the Meetup Discussion board.

Thanks Bryan
