  2. Portara - Dual DST Differences for Funds and CTA's

    Depending on the location of your trading operation(s) Dual-DST differences are a primary headache to intraday data creation for many funds. CQG Datafactory and Portara raw databases are all timestamped in Chicago time REGARDLESS of the exchange in which the data derived from.

  3. Portara - Where is the best place to Roll A Futures Contract

    I am often asked where the best place is to roll a futures contract even from seasoned traders. There are many variants but in the end it boils down to a date and an underlying reason why. If you don't know the nuances of the various sectors and markets that have developed over the years and why for instance you need to choose long periods in the metals before expiry date compared to only a day or so in the indexes then you face problems. This presentation demonstrates a few very simple methods of how to determine an optimal place;…

  5. Portara - Robustness Testing & Strategy Optimisation Using Data

    Traders often try to use their backtester — personal code or software application — to create ways in which to test system models for robustness. However, perhaps there is a much easier solution? Perhaps manipulating the data itself, rather than the code, is a far easier way in which to draw result comparisons. In this simple video you will see the creation of alternative data sets based on:

    1. Increasing and decreasing the volatility across a commodity or portfolio of commodities
    2. Cropping intraday bars from the beginning and end of your daily session
    3. Randomising the opens and closes…

  6. Portara - Discussion on SOB (Start of Bar) versus EOB (End of Bar) intraday txt CSV backtest data

    Some backtesters require data in SOB (Start of Bar) format where others require an EOB (End of Bar) approach. This video contrasts the difference between the two sets of valid timestamp models — for the data importer interfaces that backtesters contain — and researchers inevitable come across. With Portara, you can make backtesting choices for any style of backtester you currently work with — even customized self-designs. Make sure you UNDERSTAND fully the data you are working with.

    The worst case scenario is to purchase data from an unknown supplier only to find 'surprises' later when you reach the data…
