I am opening this thread to discuss the use of Octave for data analysis. I have recently started taking a Machine Learning class where this tool is used to prototype and analysis data. Here is a good description of the tool. The best part is it is open source and free vs other packages.
"GNU Octave is a high-level interpreted language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides capabilities for the numerical solution of linear and nonlinear problems, and for performing other numerical experiments. It also provides extensive graphics capabilities for data visualization and manipulation. Octave is normally used through its interactive command line interface, but it can also be used to write non-interactive programs. The Octave language is quite similar to Matlab so that most programs are easily portable. "
Thanks for moving this one. Didn't know there was a Platform/Indicator for Matlab. I guess that kinda implies to me it is a trading platform and I don't really think of these tools as a trading platform.
Well, they are tools traders use and they are their own Platform, so close enough.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?
