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.

R and machine learning tutorials

I'd like to name here some books that I found very useful for beginners:

Brett Lantz, Machine Learning with R Deliver Data Insights with R and Predictive Analytics

The author does explain some R basics, just enough to get you through excersises in the book. However, you'll feel more comfortable after this compact intro to R: Impatient R. And don't forget to install R Studio Desktop, it's more convenient than R's native console.

After seeing all the details in Lantz's book, you might want to get a higher level overview (only 9 pages):
Pedro Domingos - A Few Useful Things to Know about Machine Learning

Should you have plenty of time, udacity has a nice free ML course.

When reading about out-of-sample testing, keep in mind that time series have their own tricks. Be sure to check Prof. Hyndman's free ebook on time series prediction. In short - ten-fold is great, but peeking into future is a no-no. That's why walk forward analysis.
