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.

-- Big Mike

HUH???

NJAMC - First let me point out that I wash my kids mouth out with soap when they use four letter words around me...

That being said, I don't have a clue what you asked me.

I wanted to predict the future (crystal ball and all). I saw some work on Artificial Intelligence and started to learn more about it. Then I ran into this website with free source code (Encog) and I took a whack at it. It's C# programming so I taught myself how to do that (fit really well with the NinjaTrader indicators). Now I am trying to piece the puzzle together.

What attracted me to this program was the two books Heaton wrote that had stock market prediction chapters. This seemed like a good start. Although his program works, he is no trader so that part didn't work. He used to have a forum up but has taken that down (along with all of the work I poured into it...sigh....) and is just working on his own stuff.

Thinking things through

I've slept now and had time to think/refocus. So if I look at the program in C#, the system develops a Training Table like this:

Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).


The pattern moves the data up with each iteration. What does that mean? What is going on? How was it formed? How does it work? How do I understand exactly what this is doing?

Time to go back to the begining and walk myself through the process. I don't have to reinvent the wheel here, but I do have understand how the wheel works in order to use the tool most effectively. In addition, I have to understand what I am doing in order to build this into an indicator that actually works and isn't just snake oil.

I press on...

Time to get smarter


After looking at @NJAMC's thread, I decided to take the Machine Learning course from Coursera. NOT FUN! Python is written for half crazy people (I might qualify). The class will take me into the fall. What I am getting is a good look deeper into what I had in encog world....maybe. I have to do something or I am insane (doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results). I am not getting any younger either!
