>>560279 I assume that is the number you've tried so far and not how many you're running at once. What kind of stuff are you trading? I'm doing forex for now, but I could reuse most of my arch for other things easily.
I'm using GA to make a randomized basic tree of available indicators with range-bound node values, e.g., a node might represent some "x / y > z", but the optimal value for z is unknown, so I can set a range of 5.0 - 10.0 for it to avoid wild/wasteful values). I'm using it to find optimizations around ideas I've come up with.
I've built a full exchange simulator (slippage and everything) from scratch in Go which can backtest N algorithms concurrently across real historical data from my broker. Fun project so far.
>>560017 Any kind of technology startup. If you can't code, start now. Grow it with easy credit from banks, then sell the sinking ship for tens or hundreds of millions to some giant like Facebook or Yahoo.
>>560279 Halfway through Pardo's book so far. I've already implemented 90% of the stuff he talks about successful trading systems having, so I guess that means I'm on the right track. Just need to dump account equity data and write a little R script to plot dat dere curve.
>>560994 If you don't know how to trade, decide what you wanna trade (stocks, forex, commodities, futures, etc.), open a demo account at any broker, and READ READ READ. Read until your eyes burn. Fool around with the demo account. Test things. Learn how trading works.
If you don't know how to program, then go learn how to program. Stick with something high level like Python or Ruby and learn the concepts. If you later need performance, you can then learn C/C++/Java/Rust/whatever. All the same concepts still apply, you just have to write more code to do the same thing and it's much more error-prone. Focus on productivity initially, not performance. Something which works but is slow is better than something which is fast but doesn't work.
When you know enough of finance and programming, then start writing programs which hook into various trader APIs and implement your trading strategies that you would otherwise run manually. Get large amounts of data from somewhere (your broker, paid sources, etc.) and backtest your strats. Follow all the suggestions in the "Evaluation and Optimization of Trading Strategies" book mentioned above. The PDF is literally the second result on Google for that phrase.
>>560017 Start a business with a product or service that is needed/wanted and other business either don't offer it at all, or offer an inferior version (your product better be a fuck-ton better if you plan to compete with huge companies). The rest is up to you.
>>561091 when u are making tons of cash, someone else is losing it... perhaps you dont care who because u dont see them... but they exist... better do something fun that makes you proud instead... go out and enjoy a modest life with your friends and do not bother to seat day after day as a zombie behind the screen, its more likely u will not suceed and get more frustrated. The faggots giving wise advises on how to become rich do not see sun ligth very often, there are trapped in a golden cave they created fron the money ilusion. get a life, go fuck women around (or other sexes if u wish) but do something real ashole, ive said
sales. prob real estate now. work work work work. live off off nothing, basically only use what u absolutely have to spend.
work your fuckin ass off, network your fuckin ass off. you could do it in one year. just don't expect to have any friends, and fun, and gf while doing it. you'll prob drink every night too to numb the pain.
>>561261 >I'm 17. >Is it too late for me to bother with learning how to program and how to invest? age doesn't matter. to start programming, go to any website that teaches programming (there are tons, some are basic, some really deep) no idea about investing, but I can tell you: learn math, and learn it well.
>>561271 shit, I was going to reply to this. I've been daydreaming. what if we had a society in which robots (defined as: dumb machines that have been programmed to do a few tasks) did everything for us (or, at the very least, we could control them in the way we play RTS games), and we could dedicate our time simply to improve ourselves, or, hell, do whatever we wanted to do?
see these and imagine such a world: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26xpMCXP9bw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SObzNdyRTBs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cXXFcSJFaU4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gam5X2x1nAA
do you think someone would become interested in building this world?
We already have half a generation of disenfranchised "urban youths" who have nothing to do and can only engage in violence and criminal bullshit because they have no purpose. We have a generation of people on anti-depressants because once again, humanity is losing its purpose as we continue to advance.
>>560032 There is an Electrical Engineer that invented many products that you would recognize along with many industrial solutions. He has a fairly large team of engineers and programmers that have been working on this for over a decade, he has spent millions of dollars, but still cannot compete with the billion dollar algorithms that are already in use by the bigger players that were developed to exploit flaws in other algorithms and are constantly getting updated to exploit newer flaws.
If you guys succeed my hat is off to you, because many have tried and failed.
