I create automated, industrial-grade algorithmic trading systems for my own use and share my journey with other traders who are interested. I call my automated systems 'Trading Minions'. It's easy to 'trade like a machine' when a machine is doing the trading. When I'm not thinking about trading systems, I make real machines, like steam engines. I also play a little ukulele. Well, all ukuleles are little, aren't they?

    Thanks Mike.
    Yes some nice little surprises this week – slowly restoring balance.
    Hope you are getting some R&R – and that the family allow you some escapes to play with your AI πŸ™‚
    Could get interesting again this week.
    BTW are you hoping to be “locked out” of Oz for a few weeks πŸ™‚

      Hi Peter, we’re over here with some friends so I’m not getting much research time at all. I’ve managed to inch away at some of the AI though. Our friends return home tomorrow so things should accelerate. I have discovered that a ‘good’ holiday for me involves a balance of brain time ie time learning and researching.
      Anyway, plenty of loo paper here so maybe that’s good enough reason to extend our stay πŸ˜‰

        The markets are certainly giving your AI plenty of material “learn” about in terms of how emotional it can get πŸ™‚
        Bugger about the recent larger loss – as it was starting to rebuild its balance nicely there for a while. Getting close to my “Switch Off” point in terms of drawdown.
        Enjoy the rest / relax / research time.
        And see if you can sneak through Customs some loo paper back from Bali πŸ™‚

          Howdy,

          The challenging thing for AI learning and ’emotional’ markets is that they are not consistent enough to provide good training data :/
          Hopefully the late-week recovery helped a little.

          I’m thinking of bringing some loo paper back to sell on the brown market….

          Mike
