Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

It all depends on your time frame too.

I am reminded by the Berklee DB book i have on my shelf from trying to build a tick database that was doomed from the start.

For me, the power of daily data is a tradeoff between the granularity of higher frequency data vs the power of the full breadth of global instruments, exchange rates, everything at your fingertips with someone else doing all the storage and updating for free.

My analysis is largely pulling in data from quandl, yahoo or google and then scribbling my ideas down in an ipython notebook. Someday I can see myself having a giant pytable or pytables of pandas dataframes but the time spent on keeping things updated gives me pause right now.

So much data, so little time

I personally use R or Python and the way you store your data is really up to you and whats most efficient in your work flow. Personally I am a sql fan myself.
