Backtesting Day

  • Nov 16, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The last backtesting day was pretty fun. Will try to do the same thing again next Saturday 11/16. As before, a few others and I will be meeting this Saturday to backtest ideas for daily strategies on a trading platform I built (http://www.wanderingoutlostly.com/techtrader/).

It would primarily be for those who want to actually sit down and program stuff with us.  Please remember to bring your own laptops.

If you want to observe though, that is fine; just be warned there won't be much explanation of what's going on if you're not already familiar with programming.

Please call[masked] to be let in.

    I just posted a tech-tip about backtesting SPY with LibSVM and Postgres 9.2:

    William, do you know about TradeLink, http://code.google.com/p/tradelink/? This is an open source platform, written in C#, with a large community...

      Thank you for the reply and the links!

      I added more screenshots to the program's webpage. That should make it more clear what the strengths are.

    I have lots of experience in finance, big data and programming, but I don't have a laptop right now. Would it still be useful for me to attend? That Tech Trader looks interesting. What language is it written in?

      You're welcome to attend. We'll mainly be programming ideas. It's in C#

    If anyone can provide me a source of real time data from a server's
    i.p. address and port let me know. I have limited training in Big Data.

      Don't know of any free servers like that (data tends to be valuable), but the common brokers like TDAmeritrade or ETrade tend to not care if you just sign up and use their API without actually trading.
