in reply to Using Perl for writing Trading Systems

I searched for modules in CPAN, but couldn't find what I was looking for.
I use WWW::Mechanize and LWP modules to get free data (Yahoo finance) and subscription data for specific equities based on pre-determined criteria and load them into a database( using DBI) and run various SQLs to test different strategies.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Have you found these strategies profitable? I don't want to know the actual strategy, that is your gospel and for you only, but I just wonder: have you found statistically significant patterns?

    Once I complete my MA (bout 1 1/2 years) I am going to work for a proprietary trading firm, so this is more than just an intellectual interest....

      There are plenty of mathematics modules on CPAN...

      found this bundle of modules...

      Can't really comment on them right now... once I have my exams and essays out the way - roll along, January 19th!- I will spend a week sifting through the stuff (no doubt, I will inform the monastery of anything of interest)

      Anyway, thanks for your help dudes. This is a subject I will return to soon.

      peace out
      For the limited period (past 2 months), I was able to validate a pattern for a specific group of stocks. However, Iam not ready to place my hard earned cash yet :) I will apply the pattern for the next month or so on paper and then slowly start using it.
        Sounds like a good idea. I'm not sure that time-frame can be considered statistically reliable. Then again, markets change: it also all depends on the time-frame between the buy and the sell. I assume you are daytrading or intra-daytrading. Anyway, I guess this isn't the place for non-Perl trading talk, so good luck in your trading!
