Happy user to my Quant HFT Manifesto, journey of easy algo reseasrch to DotNET trading platform deployment

This was a response of my Manifesto after the weekend. Responses like this really drive me to keep pouring it on.

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2014/05/here-is-my-manifesto-to-those-learning-how-to-profit-using-quant-and-hft-like-trading-platform/

Thanks to people like this through my newsletter:

this is a guy from Germany.
During the last weeks when I was researching about technologies for my own custom trading platform, I noticed your youtube channel.

I start watching you videos from beginning and had a lot of fun to see you fighting with all the issues.
It was like a time journey cause some, or better say most, experiences I had by my self too ūüėČ

About 4 years ago I came in contact with trading and became infected by the idea of automated trading.
I’m a research engineer in a big automotive company and my day job is about modeling and simulation of
Physical and chemical processes.
So it was clear to me to see a overlapping in methods cause very deep analyzing of time series was my bread and butter at this time.
So I tried Metatader but soon I came to the point that this isn’t sufficient and the only profitable can be the broker. So I started a similar journey and tried many tools and platforms until coming to the point the only way is to develop by my self and having full control…
But which prog. language, Windows or Linux and all the basic questions.
And so on and so on…

Just want to say keep up the good work and stay persistent and enthusiastic!
It would be realy cool to see a update of your trading platform progress in your youtube channel!!!

 

–> wow! What can I say! A lot of of the above pretty well is in line with what I do. Do remember I like easy solutions not complicated processes you need to babysit. Also, I am right now focused on Windows with .NET (C#)as a front end. On the algo backend, I do believe I have a really good workflow for transition to either C++/C (for DLLs) or even ultra low latency HFT via HFT.

As for trading platform components, that is for my paying members as that is propietary. Yo! Daddy gotta pays the bills you know.

–> It is growing as more people are piling into contribute. It makes it better. I am looking at a new workflow to make the process even better

NEW Workflow Qaunt Algo from Research Paper to Simulink to C C++ or FPGA HDL for ultra lowest latency HFT


This is a very slow process as it takes long to learn the raw math for whatever algorithms I go with . I will post my throughts on the blog Youtube channel as I proceed

–> Understood, if you read my newer workflow analysis, this could help people build DLLs or C static libraries (for Linux) so that could help there as we roll out this process

Hi Bryan,
about the forum:
I googled “quantlabs.net forum” and got this link: ¬† ¬†http://quantlabs.net/academy/forum/
But I can’t open a account or give any input.
If the is the ‘non public’ part it not well hidden ūüėČ
–> I see what you are saying, you need to register to create an account for the forum. Do that here:
You also should take into account that there is something like “http://archive.org/web/”
Now it not relevant cause they dont store videos – but you don’t know for the future…
I realy like your workflow! Thx for the videos!
–> no problems
By my self, I have around 9 years Matlab and Simulink experience and its always impressive to see what’s possible.
–> It makes life easier due to the visual representation of Simulink model development
Also there is a new product called Simscape, I know from the very begining. (but not sure if it important for trading were I need unidirectional signal flow)
–> I have not fully played with this yet
But your workflow is for trading strategy development only.
–> this is correct
That means your trading platform is finished?
–> we have components which is part of my Quant Elite membership (http://quantlabs.net/academy/be-an-elite-quant/) This can be considered components for a trading system ranging from real time data capture to execution through Interactive Brokers (http://quantlabs.net/academy/buy-our-custom-trading-platform-course-with-source-code/). This includes hours of ¬†video walkthroughs and actual source code as well.
Or you decided to lease a pkatform?
–> this a way to expensive option most people cannot afford (i.e.e $6k-9$k per month)

Starting Interactive Brokers TWS and IQFeed before my custom trading platform

> Bryan,

>

> Quick question.

> For your trading demo, the actual connection into Interactive Broker

> TWS is the DLLimport code in your form1.cs file?

> I know I have to load the IB trade station first.

> Thank for the help.

ALl the IQFeed and TWS software components need be loaded before my code can work. To automate this, you could easily start up these components through a Windows service.

90 min Video limitations reveals limitation of your retail trading platform

The replay of some killer strategy talk is now posted:

General Intro Q and A 90 minute video replay on Automated Trading Systems for better community РSee more at: https://quantlabs.net/blog/2014/01/general-intro-q-and-a-90-minute-video-replay-on-automated-trading-systems-for-better-community/#sthash.8dzY2Xh7.dpuf
As usual, people ask about the limitation of retail trading platforms (i.e. Tradestation, Metatrader, Ninja, etc) but this video contains a very real world description from a  trader/researcher with his limitations of Think or Swim.
Next Pow Wow webinar is scheduled this Weds:

The next one is tentatively schedule for Feb 5.
Now onto some exciting technical development, I got the source code from that last book (C# in Financial Applications) which should have a HUGE impact on my trading strategy development starting this week:
Excel and DotNet source code examples acquired for C# in Financial Applications book РSee more at: https://quantlabs.net/blog/2014/01/excel-and-dotnet-source-code-examples-acquired-for-c-in-financial-applications-book/#sthash.iIuCR0Ln.dpuf
From this you will you see all the components I have in my custom trading platform course with source code examples. This weekend will be the last chance as I will beincreasing the course price by $200 on Monday. It is set at the lowest price you will ever see from me as I am moving everything up the food chain.
Also, be on the lookout for my ‘Elite’ membership which is targeting professional traders which will include¬†ALL of courses from my QuantLabs.net. I hope this has a massive impact on those who take their trading seriously.
Have good weekend Bryan
P.S. Let me know what you think of how we move forward

As my database section shows, there are numerous options. You could even use Access but I do think you would something more robust like SQL Server. As for the software you speak, you should go with SQL Servers Management Studio (SMSS) to do this. I believe the new SQL Server 2014 will be a huge step for platforms to acquire real time data. MYSQL may be adequate but I choose SQL Server.
Hope this helps
Bryan

> So I assume SMSS is additional to Visual Studio.

Sorry. I should have SMSS is part of SQL Server so you download the Express edition for free.

Does this article hint DOTNet C Sharp could be as fast as C++ with STL for quant and HFT trading platform development?

Hi there

I was surprised when I say this:

Does this article hint that DOTNet C Sharp could be as fast as C++ with STL for quant and HFT trading platform development? – See more at: https://quantlabs.net/blog/2013/12/does-this-article-hint-that-dotnet-c-sharp-could-be-as-fast-as-c-with-stl-for-quant-and-hft-trading-platform-development/#sthash.WBmhwGda.dpuf

Depending on your libraries, C++ could slow down your development time if you have bloated libraries. C# could make it easier.

Did you you know my current workshop on showing you how to develop an automated trading system in C#? It even comes with source code. Get the entire schedule here.

I have dozens of coding samples in C#, C++, R, Matlab, and even more! Learn how to trade with programming in my QuantLabs.net Premium Membership

Of course this will not last forever as I am removing all PUBLIC ACCESS after Jan 6 forever,

See  some extra info listed here!

Thanks Bryan
