Sharing proprietary algo trading strategy

Check out my blog for details : tradingwhisperer.wordpress.com

The content below u can find in my blog.

Welcome to my quant trading journey

This blog site is all about documenting my journey in researching quantitative and systematic trading strategies. Most of the blogs i will post will be related to crude oil futures contract (CL) since it is the market i have been trading both manually and systematically for the last 2 years.

I have gone from complete rookie to following other people chat/trading rooms all to find out that life is so unpredictable. More unpredictable that we as human being would want to admit. I started trading expecting to make loads of money fast and quick, only to realize that good and sustainable success does not happen overnight. See, trading made me understand things i was not looking forward to, but i am happy i embarked on this journey. What made me switch from manual and amateur trader to systematic quantitative trading is realizing that trading is just a number’s game, that’ all. It is all about the amount of risk you are willing to accept for some reward and the odds that your particular strategy has. This is where, back-testing or paper trading is extremely important. You can’t and should not risk real money on some “feeling” type of strategy or one or two winning trades displayed on the web. You need to have the information regarding past performance of the strategy. I will not be introducing performance parameters of a trading strategy here, but i will be mentioning and explaining them as i post some results from strategies that i research.

In conclusion, trading is fun and interesting, however quantitative trading is even better. Follow me on this journey and who knows maybe you and i will become billionaires sooner than you think.

I see the content is about the same as on your website.
I suggest you continue posting the content on Futures.io as a journal.

If you are selling anything, be sure to notify the admin of Futures.io to prevent issues.

FWIW

quantitative trading


You said that are doing quantitative trading.
I have a question for you:
What are you using, Relative Value strategies or Directional strategies? Obviously the other methods like HFT, Managed Volatility are not on your range.

Hard to believe based on your experience that you are at the level to teach other people about quantitative trading to make millions.

Hi tturner86, I am not a vendor. I just want to share my journey and publish the algotrading strategies that I research in my free time.

How i lost 5000$ in 5 min in my early foolish trading days


I remember back in late 2015 and early 2016, I had discovered a CFD (contract for difference) platform. CFD trading offers high leverage going even up to 200 to 1, which means when you make a good trade, you can end up with significant gain. On the other hand though, a single loss can wipe out your acccount. People used to say: “One never becomes rich after one trade, but can definitely slide into poverty and ruin after a single trade. I experienced it when as a foolish amateur trader, a single trade had cost me big money in less than 5 min.

2 days before, I was looking at the chart in my phone (Any serious trader won’t be trading on his phone) and saw an opportunity to trade on crude oil for a possible gain of about 150 USD. However I mistakenly added one more 0 to my order and ended buy 10 times more than the amount I originally planned to trade. Since it is leveraged, the trade went through and I surprisingly made 1500 USD. Guess what, I was so on the moon, imagining how I could make 1500 – 2000 USD a day and “baaam” I am rich just like that. But things aren’t so simple, and some of you reading this post can maybe relate. I did not even consider the risk of losses, and that I could blow my account with the risk involved.

The next day, I woke up in the morning, ready to go to work. I decided to check the market and maybe get an easy wining trade. I saw a trade opportunity was being played (I had no journal, notes or learning from mistakes kind of thing) and did not jump in as i was running to get the train. Furthermore, I closed the app and went to work. I was anticipating price to move in my direction so I had FOMO (fear of missing out). 4 hours later I get to check my and realize that the trade was in play. I was like: “Wow they waited for me, what a kind market, thinking about me and my plan of making money”. I immediately jumped in (I had no stop loss). 10 Seconds after i jumped in, the market dropped and went against my direction. I can tell you at that moment, i felt my Heart dropped in my stomach. I went from hope of making 1500 to -750 USD inmediately. I started sweating and praying in my heart. That prayer part still makes me laugh till today. In about 2 min, it went from -750 to -3000 USD. I was sitting there frozen, not knowing what to do. To cut things short, after 4 min 50 seconds, the trade position got closed automatically due to margin call. The picture below is what i saw in my head.

5000 note bleed
5000 USD note bleeding
I checked my balance, behold I only had 375 usd left. I had lost 5000 USD, real money. At that point i started imagining the holiday destinations i could have gone to, how many months i could paid my rent, the iphone i was looking forward to get, and many other things. I was so devasted, it felt like it was not real. I checked my account statement more than 20 times after the loss to check the money was indeed gone.

To be continued in part 2 where i will explain how i survived it and will whether i made it back or not.
