Hedge Fund Trading System

Learn the trading strategy that trend-following hedge funds are using to profit from the financial markets.

Created by Hedge Fund Trading System - Full-Time Trader


Students: 27381, Price: Free

In this free Forex trading system, you will discover how I trade for a living. It is not only me who is using this (or similar) trading systems. There are at least a few dozen of trend-following hedge funds that use the same approach to make money on the financial markets. I am sharing my knowledge with all new/experienced traders eager to learn a consistently winning trading strategy that has been working for me for the past 5 years. I would love to make this system accessible to as many traders as possible and that is why I wanted to make it free. I have tried to keep it as concise as possible, so not wasting your time with unnecessary details. In the end- time is money!

The goal of this course apart from showing you a trading system that has been working for me for a long time is to try to protect you from the dangers of the financial markets. I have been day-trading (unsuccessfully) for some time before discovering that longer-term trading is actually the only way to profit from the markets. I know a lot of you are extremely eager to make money quick, but this is not the point of this course. I would like to show you a system that works in the long-term. More and more people are trying to make quick money in the financial markets nowadays, but less and less are making money in the short term. As some of you already know- trading is a zero-sum game. In other words, for every winner there is a loser. That's what I will try to help you with- how to be on the winning side in the long-term.

I am sorry if my english is not perfect, but it is not my native language. I still believe that for trading there are no barriers and traders should follow their dreams. I will do my best to help you reach your goals (financial), but there is one thing I cannot do for you- I cannot teach you how to be disciplined! That is something that you need to discover yourself in order to be a successful trader...

OK. Back to the system- it is a simple trend-following discretionary trading system. I have included 10 videos and a trading manual. Please make sure that you read the trading manual before watching the videos. In this way, you would be prepared what to expect and would better grasp the trading system.

The biggest prize for me would be if I can help new/experienced traders become even more successful!

Last but not least- I would like to thank especially to 3 TRADERS that helped me become a successful trader and follow my dreams- Colibri Trader, Paul (a.k.a. The Flipper) and Brett!

For the sake of the course:

I am using the website Tradingview to show the charts. I do not want to be associated with any brokers, so that is why I am using a free trading website open to anyone. I am not here to make money by referring traders to brokers, although I would like to warn you to be careful when choosing one. There are a lot of bad seed out there. Lastly, I have done the trading manual easily downloadable here, so you can just get it with one click of a mouse.

When you are taking this course, it is not necessary to have prior experience in trading since I go over the basics in the beginning. But for a complete FOREX newbie, it might still be a bit tough to get all of the pieces of information in one go. I anyways try to be as simple to follow as possible. In the end, my trading system is straightforward and effective if one is using it correctly.

Created by Ashvin Roharia - Software Engineer at Silicon Labs


Students: 1022, Price: Free

In this course, you will learn more about the field of embedded machine learning. In recent years, technological advances in embedded systems have enabled microcontrollers to run complicated machine learning models. Embedded devices for machine learning applications can fulfill many tasks in the industry. One typical example: sensor devices that detect acoustic or optical anomalies and discrepancies and, in this way, support quality assurance in production or system condition monitoring. In addition to cameras for monitoring visual parameters and microphones for recording soundwaves, these devices also use sensors for, for instance, vibration, contact, voltage, current, speed, pressure, and temperature.

Even though there is plenty of educational content on embedded systems and machine learning individually, educational content on embedded ML has yet to catch up. This course attempts to fill that void by providing fundamentals of embedded systems, machine learning, and Tiny ML. This course will conclude with an interactive project where the learner will get to create their own specialized embedded ML project. This project will be based on acoustic event detection using a microcontroller or your own mobile device. By the end of the course, you will be able to pick your own classifications and audio and train and deploy a machine learning model yourself. This is a great way to introduce yourself to and gain valuable experience in the field of embedded machine learning.

Valuable links and resources

Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is an Internet Standard protocol for collecting and organizing information about managed devices on IP networks and for modifying that information to change device behavior. Devices that typically support SNMP include cable modems, routers, switches, servers, workstations, printers, and more.

SNMP is widely used in network management for network monitoring. SNMP exposes management data in the form of variables on the managed systems organized in a management information base (MIB) which describe the system status and configuration. These variables can then be remotely queried (and, in some circumstances, manipulated) by managing applications.

Three significant versions of SNMP have been developed and deployed. SNMPv1 is the original version of the protocol. More recent versions, SNMPv2c and SNMPv3, feature improvements in performance, flexibility and security.

Managed Devices:

A managed device or the network element is a part of the network that requires some form of monitoring and management e.g. routers, switches, servers, workstations, printers, UPSs, etc...

SNMP Agent:

The agent is a program that is packaged within the network element. Enabling the agent allows it to collect the management information database from the device locally and makes it available to the SNMP manager, when it is queried for. These agents could be standard (e.g. Net-SNMP) or specific to a vendor (e.g. HP insight agent)

SNMP agent’s key functions

  • Collects management information about its local environment

  • Stores and retrieves management information as defined in the MIB.

  • Signals an event to the manager.

  • Acts as a proxy for some non–SNMP manageable network node.

Introduction to PIC18F Microcontroller

Basic Concepts of PIC18F Microcontroller

Created by Dr. Prathiba Reddy - Asst. Prof. at G H Raisoni Institute of Engg. & Technology


Students: 597, Price: Free

Microprocessors are used extensively in the design of any computing facility. It contains units to carry out arithmetic and logic calculations, fast storage in terms of registers and associated control logic to get instructions from memory and execute them. A number of devices can be interfaced with them to develop a complete system application. On the other hand, microcontrollers are single chip computers, integrating processor, memory and other peripheral modules into a single System-on-Chip (SoC). Apart from input-output ports, the peripherals often include timers, data converters, communication modules, and so on. The single chip solution makes the footprint of the computational element small in the overall system package, eliminating the necessity of additional chips on board. However, there exists a large range of such products. While the simpler microcontrollers are cheap, their capabilities (in terms of program size and analog and digital peripherals) are also limited. Such processors may be suitable for small applications. Microcontrollers like 8051, PIC belong to this category.

In this course Introduction to PIC18F Microcontroller, history of PIC18, features, architecture, Memory Organization, Registers are discussed briefly and Basic concepts of assembly language programming i.e., Assembler directives, Data formats, Addressing modes, Instruction set with simple examples are discussed
