Would be great to have a look at the webinar for this. I'm struggling to find a working link... Has anyone else managed to find it?

Does anyone have a working link to the webinar? The one Aly provided in 2009 is no longer working.

I recently came across your webinar on Algorithmic Trading in 2009 and it is a great one. However for the " simple market making system based on a paper by Sanmay Das" part, I am wondering which paper you are refering to and it seems that this system is not about market making but a directional bet system. Finally, would you please provide more resource on the code "callnnpiter" such as relevant papers? I really appreciate it and thank you in advance!

I tried the 'callnnpiter' with parfor ...loop and for ... loop, and got quite different results. I then checked the nnpiter.m. and found it rely on the order of the loop (So parfor cannot be used). Is this a bug?

i'm playin around with the nnpiter function .. can anybody explain why the results vary from run to run (number of trades) and why i get completly different results if i change the parfor loop into a for loop?

In strategyAnalysis.m , what does its parameters (t,p,pos,th,data(:,4)) stand for? Its giving me errors for undefined parameters?
Is there any other way to run this code as the above variables does nt seem to be present in the variable window.
Can these parameters be externally set n how do we set them ?

Now I see... it does not use transaction costs: we sholud use:

pnl = ([0;x(2:end).*sig2(1:end-1)]);

instead of:

pnl = ([0;x(2:end).*sig2(1:end-1)-abs(diff(sig2))*0.000028]);

Wasn't it?

Thanks a lot

Dear Aly,

Thanks for this great work. Though, my fault, running callnnpiter with GBPdata1sShort, results are different as in the webinar. The PnL graph shows different (cummulative losses instead of continuous profits). Does someone know why?
