Episode 296: Automated Trading From the Perspective of a Software Engineer

Welcome to The Traders Podcast. Episode 296 is for those who are interested in automated trading. Your host Rob Booker talks with Ryan, a Traders Podcast listener who works as a software engineer in California. Ryan has been writing his own robots for currency trading, and he has a very refreshing perspective for anyone who wants to start off on the right foot. Ryan talks about the frustrations of back-testing and especially forward-testing. He says he needed to start with the problem, so Ryan and Rob discuss how he went about identifying and understanding said problem. These are just a few topics of the many discussed in Episode 296. We enjoyed having Ryan on the show, and we think you’ll enjoy him, too. Thanks for listening.

Scott says there are two questions he wants us to think about regarding our retirement: 1.) How can I retire as fast as possible? 2.) Since I like my job, how much can I save? Yes, Scott also addresses the question: What if I don’t want to retire? So, you’re going to hear Scott run the numbers and explain “the vision” to Jason. Don’t miss this one!
