Building an automated trading system from scratch

Post by janith on Thu Apr 05, 2018 3:01 pm

I'm sorry if this seems like a question that I can easily find the answer to somewhere around this forum.

My goal is to try and build an automated trading system from scratch (where I can essentially press a button to start the program and it will trade throughout the market hours before I close it). I'd prefer being able to use Python for this, but I honestly not sure where I have to start from.

I see a lot of posts and books about Algo trading strategies but I want to actually build a system that trades it.

Are there any specific resources (online courses, books, websites) you guys would recommend for figuring this out?

Also, what are the specific parts I need? I know I need something to gather data, parse the data, run the strategy on the data, and send orders. Is that it?

really appreciate any assistance/ wisdom you can pass on.

p.s-dear admin, i'm not sure if this question should be posted on this thread or any other. please move or direct me to the correct forum thread. Thanx

Welcome to the forum Janith.

1) Are you looking at building a system to trade at CSE?


2) If so, there are bottleneck you have to overcome.

a) At CSE, without an online account through a broker you are not allowed to trade. Anycase you need a CSE/Broker Account ID to trade.

b) The CSE realtime available share price/trading data was presented though a document ( it used to be xls not sure now) . You need to find such is on CSE and take a look what you can do with it.

Hi slstock,
Thank you for the reply.

yes i'm currently looking at CSE.
then definitely i would have to look in to a way of getting real-time data since the project i'm planning is more in to HFT.

Hi කිත්සිරි,

Not exactly to reinvent the wheel, but to evolve it a bit Smile
Well simply to put, I'm trying to test my own algorithm.
I'm not sure if i would be able to use my algorithm with any of the current trading applications available locally.

Also i'm planning to integrate a bot to continuously run the algorithm.

Janith, bots are using in binary options and forex tradings. Can you modify a above bot to use in cse? Anyhow we have to give the share name manually to bot to do trading . Otherwise, the system may get very complex.
What are the criterias you are going to give to bot??

Hi CK,

I'm currently monitoring some reference models which I can absorb in to my project. And yes I believe I can get the bot to work on CSE.

As for the share name and other details, I expect there should be an easier way to import financial data to my coding than a manual entry.

Welcome to the forum Janith.

My two cents below,

I used to trade in the forex market earlier. There are so many automated trading system in the forex market. but i have not seen or heard anyone using that in CSE. i am only in CSE for last two+ years.

And i doubt the online trading platforms in Srilanka is capable of accommodating AUTOMATED TRADING SYSTEM. This is not to de motivate you. May be they don't have it so far, because no one needed it so far. Since you are in a mission to invent it, it would be beneficial for all of us in the forum.

Good luck.

Dear janith, if you try to build a automated trading system, what's the use of past data? Combine some tech indicators and volume trade, and execute buy sell according to that. This is only trading not investing.. isn't it?
(I think for long term investments, shouldn't use a trading system. Should be hand picked)

@nihal123,
Thank you very much.
The data set is very useful. I may have to clean it a bit. But you have definitely saved a lot of time for me.

@CK,
Past data is to test my algorithm. It is not necessarily just buy and sell. My algo will be designed to control the risk as well. Having an algo just to buy and sell would not be useful as I may end up loosing money with commissions for each trade. So i'll have to design it such a way that the algo has been fed with accurate possibilities of profits and losses so that it can avoid unwanted deals.

Very Good Janith Baba,

This is exactly the right way all world famous multi billionaire investors started.

You can follow the following steps and become the Universe's best automated trader in CSE.

+ Summarize your trading algorithm in to 8 steps
+ Get hold of a broker account with DirectFN trading client
+ Use its conditional trading module and APIs to build an automating script
+ Execute the newly built script
+ Wait and see what happens
+ Notice some error executions done by the script
+ Correct the script algorithm
+ Execute it
+ Notice now the program works right
+ Notice that auto trades didn't bring the intended proftis
+ Do some adjustments in the script and execute
++ Wow! the program brings its first profit trades
+ Enjoy your success
+ Have a party and plan what would you do with all the profits going to be generated by your program
+ Plan your dreams of how to spend all unlimited money going to pour in
+ Put more money and plan for bigger automated trading
+But; Notice that something has gone wrong
+ Notice that intended profits are not coming anymore, because something has gone wrong with the market
+ Yes something is wrong with the market
+ Market is not behaving rationally
+ Notice your frustration
++Then, Start your next threat on seeking help again from gurus in this forum

See ya later buddy!!

Still I can't understand why you are using past data for trading..First identify what's trading and investing..
Brokerage is very primary thing and you can easily take it in to your system mate.
If you don't need to take unnecessary or necessary risk, beter go for long term investments (But you should ready to lock your money atleast 5 years)
Anyhow for me long term investments are the most riskier ones as how we know what happen to the company after 5 or 10 years..

Hi CK,

I also agree with you on the longer holdups. But my calculations are based on specific market trends and i'm trying to test my algo using past data before I implement it for live trading.

Once I do some backtesting with past data, I can at least check how my algorithm is holding up with the market and also i'll be able to tweak any performance and risk issues.

Janith,

1) Didn't want to say this before but we did a project like this maybe 10 year ago.  We used AI training of software using past data to predict short term  trades at CSE.  

2) Anyway as there are lot of feedback on the thread and  you seems to be knowing what you want to do, I will eagerly await more details of your approach and success ( I mean the technical side how you did it).

3) Just a tip . I mentioned this before .  I see 2 other people also mentioned it in different ways but you may have not picked  up the fact

At CSE, there are no public accesible  APIs  ( to my knowledge) just so anyone can access the ATS ( trading  server)  for obvious reasons.  

So maybe need to  find a Trading software ( though a broker) with a good API if you
want to excute real time trades . ( But don't do it at the start as it going to cost you)
Direct FN is a good start as it has some APIs.

I am not sure , Python can be used to access it though.


4) Best to call CSE also to find out latest developments.
   The CSE  trading server was updated year or 2 ago.
   How transactions done were changed from long ago.
   

Anycase, do update this thread with your progress.
I would personally like to specially know both the approach and specially the techincal details  of how you did it.

Good luck

ps : You might find Ying Yang comment a bit sarcastic ( as you have not met him before),
but I can tell you  there are certain truths in it.
 
 I will wait for you own discovery , success/failure  and reporting of such Smile

Hi slstock,

Hahaha
yes I saw that sarcasm coming at me a mile away Laughing lol!
and I also agree with some (or most) of them pointers he has highlighted. To be honest, i've kept it as a checklist to tick one by one off Wink

As for your feedback, thank you for giving me a highlight of your experiences.

I've already got a trading platform (an open source platform; but still adjusting it to suite my requirements though) and my next obstacle would be to find a broker who I can integrate. Since i've also done my research, it seems that currently CSE does not support direct individual access.

I think the only 2 available (or at least most prominent) players to provide online trading in Sri Lanka are Direct FN and ATrad.
So I think I'll have to check the feasibility of integrating their API. I'm currently working with python and C#. So I hope that integration should not make extra workload for me since Python and C# are like 2 of the most preferred languages when it comes to Algo trading or Investment/trading.

I will anyway keep you guys posted on the progress of this project. I know that I will definitely run in to some problems in coming days and better to have some 'know how' people around to get some help.

Thanx

Btw there is person named Dileepa, who tried some CSE related software as such.
 I hope he shows up and comments as he can give you some tips.

I also like to hear his view on LLUB situation now as bonus discussion.
He was interested in LLUB and did good discussion on it.
( When LLUB was in the Rs 300 before split)

Very interesting comment.  


I make this statement to add balance to this opinion ...


1) Anycase if this was the case for everyone , there will be no

a) Captains, Dammika pereras and Harry J

b) No unit trusts , and CINV and GUAR    

c) or most importantly there will be no top 10 long term holders for  any company
Even  companies like COMB, HNB, SAMP, JKH which lasted for decades !
There are some  companies which has lasted for 100 years to date.

d) then during certain periods at CSE there will be all sellers and Zero  buyers


2) Even if one goes longer term, it does not mean, one buys for 5 years and forget about it.  One needs to monitor the company results atleast 6-12 months


So any interested in  longer term investing as opposed to shorter term trading,
no need to have undue fear ,
that is if one does his/her homework and future work on the company.

Buffett's biggest stock win


Warren Buffett's biggest stock investment win of all time is an excellent example of what he looks for in a "forever stock." Buffett bought shares of Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) for Berkshire Hathaway in 1988, and just under 30 years later, the stock is up by approximately 1,350% from Buffett's cost basis. And that doesn't even include the dividends Berkshire has received over the past three decades. At the current dividend rate, Coca-Cola pays Berkshire $592 million per year.
