    Ideas from The Second Leg Down book.

    Hi Marcas, I am reading the book now, having caught the tail end of the live video. I will also go back and watch the video in it's entirety when I get a chance. It was actually Ron in another group I am a member of who reminded me of the meeting. I wish I could have participated. So far...

    python gui programming

    Some really great comments and am enjoying reading this thread. Hopefully I will be able to eventually contribute as much as others have in the future. I like the sound of the speed and robustness of TDA-API. I also came across a Python wrapper for TDA-API this weekend. Is that what you all...

    python gui programming

    That makes sense. DDE & API are just the method to connect to get the data into the dashboard and the API way may be more complicated. However, if we initially get the data into the dashboard using DDE, there is nothing to prevent those who want to use API to do so, right? It's just a data...

    python gui programming

    What are CD Channels? Is everything set up so we can continue the discussion in Slack? Maybe we should set some goals. It sounds like using an API is the best route, so that would be the first thing to establish with a data source. I have access to IB/TWS & TOS data. What does everyone else...

    python gui programming

    Marcas, is using Python via an API for accessing the data faster than setting up a DDE connection with Excel? If you didn't use Excel as the dashboard, what would / could be used instead? Also, to your point, right now the lines don't need to look pretty in my opinion; and we aren't trying to...

    python gui programming

    By the way, I read an interesting book called "Algorithmic Trading with Interactive Brokers ... Python & C++". It had some interesting ideas about setting up code for options.

    python gui programming

    Sorry for kicking the hornets nest, but I really am enjoying this enthusiasm. From what I have read, there are also ways to utilize excel with python as well (using Py instead of VBA I think?). Not to force the issue with Python (although I think it's a very powerful language), but maybe this...

    python gui programming

    Thank you both for your replies. I am not trying to reinvent the wheel and my only reason for choosing Excel is because I know it and it would offer a dashboard so to speak for viewing the components of my trades. However, I have spent a little time learning Python as well, but I didn't think...

    python gui programming

    Hi Marcas, I saw your discussion on the trading group video about TOS P&L and am interested in the tool you were using. also, do you have any experience linking data from TOS to excel dynamically? I know how to copy & paste, but I’m looking for more of an API kind of link that I can use for...

    My experience

    Yes I do like that feature ... is there any way to apply potential changes like IV increase/decrease to model the impact on the PnL?

    My experience

    I have been using the trial of ONE and I find it interesting, providing a little bit different view than what TOS shows. I am still not sure it gives that much more than TOS to justify the price, but maybe I am not looking at the features for what it's intended for. I am using the beta 2.0.59...

    Overbought/Oversold for currencies

    Hi Andrew & Marcas, Thank you for your comments I guess I didn't make myself understood (which is not unusual). I was not thinking about constructing an overbought/oversold indicator, but rather wondering about its usefulness for currencies as opposed to an instrument like stocks. I...

    python gui programming

    I haven't seen any ... but I imagine there might be there. I believe there are application interface building tools that you can reference in the python code, sort of like HTML elements when building a web page.

    Overbought/Oversold for currencies

    I was wondering if anyone has considered this thought process (which is probably a bit warped and overly philosophical). Especially since many indicators seem to miss measuring overbought and oversold. My thought is this. Stocks, for example, have a value that can be calculated and therefore...
