vectorbt - blazingly fast backtesting and interactive data analysis for quants

I want to share with you a tool that I was continuously developing during the last couple of months.
https://github.com/polakowo/vectorbt

As a data scientist, when I first started flirting with quant trading, I quickly realized that there is a shortage of Python packages that can actually enable me to iterate over a long list of possible strategies and hyper-parameters quickly. Most open-source backtesting libraries are very evolved in terms of functionality, but simply lack speed. Questions like "Which strategy is better: X or Y?" require fast computation and transformation of data. This not only prolongs your lifecycle of designing strategies, but is dangerous after all: limited number of tests is similar to a tunnel vision - it prevents you from seeing the bigger picture and makes you dive into the market blindly.
After trying tweaking pandas, multiprocessing, and even evaluating my strategies on a cluster with Spark, I finally found myself using Numba - a Python library that can compile slow Python code to be run at native machine code speed. And since there were no packages in the Python ecosystem that could even closely match the speed of my own backtests, I made vectorbt.
vectorbt combines pandas, NumPy and Numba sauce to obtain orders-of-magnitude speedup over other libraries. It builds upon the idea that each instance of a trading strategy can be represented in a vectorized form, so multiple strategy instances can be packed into a single multi-dimensional array. In this form, they can processed in a highly efficient manner and compared easily. It also integrates Plotly and ipywidgets to display complex charts and dashboards akin to Tableau right in the Jupyter notebook. You can find basic examples and explanations in the documentation.

Below is an example of doing in total 67,032 tests on three different timeframes of Bitcoin price history to explore how performance of a MACD strategy depends upon various combinations of fast, slow and signal windows:
import vectorbt as vbt import numpy as np import yfinance as yf from itertools import combinations, product # Fetch daily price of Bitcoin price = yf.Ticker("BTC-USD").history(period="max")['Close'] price = price.vbt.split_into_ranges(n=3) # Define hyper-parameter space # 49 fast x 49 slow x 19 signal fast_windows, slow_windows, signal_windows = vbt.indicators.create_param_combs( (product, (combinations, np.arange(2, 51, 1), 2), np.arange(2, 21, 1))) # Run MACD indicator macd_ind = vbt.MACD.from_params( price, fast_window=fast_windows, slow_window=slow_windows, signal_window=signal_windows, hide_params=['macd_ewm', 'signal_ewm'] ) # Long when MACD is above zero AND signal entries = macd_ind.macd_above(0) & macd_ind.macd_above(macd_ind.signal) # Short when MACD is below zero OR signal exits = macd_ind.macd_below(0) | macd_ind.macd_below(macd_ind.signal) # Build portfolio portfolio = vbt.Portfolio.from_signals( price.vbt.tile(len(fast_windows)), entries, exits, fees=0.001, freq='1D') # Draw all window combinations as a 3D volume fig = portfolio.total_return.vbt.volume( x_level='macd_fast_window', y_level='macd_slow_window', z_level='macd_signal_window', slider_level='range_start', template='plotly_dark', trace_kwargs=dict( colorscale='Viridis', colorbar=dict( title='Total return', tickformat='%' ) ) ) fig.show() 

https://reddit.com/link/hxl6bn/video/180sxqa8mzc51/player
From signal generation to data visualization, the example above needs roughly a minute to run.

vectorbt let's you
The current implementation has limitations though:

If it sounds cool enough, try it out! I would love if you'd give me some feedback and contribute to it at some point, as the codebase has grown very fast. Cheers.

As awareness is increasing for Quant after recent announcements, here is an overview and links to find more info about this fantastic project

As awareness is increasing for Quant after recent announcements, here is an overview and links to find more info about this fantastic project
1/ As awareness is increasing for @quant_network after recent announcements I encourage everyone to see the thread below providing more details around the project. Excellent Team, Tech, Use cases, Tokenomics, Partners has it all.
https://preview.redd.it/usj6bepzvz751.png?width=1345&format=png&auto=webp&s=bf859c622fcf2fdebf9c1be24b369e7a8312119d
2/ Quant’s Overledger Blockchain Operating System not only provides interoperability between all the leading Enterprise and Public Blockchains but also connecting the world’s networks to blockchain with just 3 lines of code.
https://preview.redd.it/1tf32qb1wz751.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=f6d7c437d5b764916fab8fdfefe787ad2afce38f
3/ Unlike other solutions, Overledger solves interoperability at scale without the overhead/bottleneck/single point of failure of adding another blockchain in the middle, nor does it impose restrictions / require blockchains to fork their code to connect.
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/what-is-a-blockchain-operating-system-and-what-are-the-benefits-c561d8275de6
4/ Overledger is not a blockchain itself, but an OS that runs on top of multiple blockchains, providing a platform to build and use multi chain applications and abstracts all of the complexities involved with integrating with all the different blockchains
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/blockchain-operating-system-learning-from-the-past-to-build-a-better-future-92142c823d30
5/ #Interoperability is more than just Blockchain-to-Blockchain. True Interoperability is Any-to-Any.@quant_network are launching a universal connector for Overledger which allows for any API to connect to any Blockchain through Overledger.
https://preview.redd.it/taxpb9p3wz751.png?width=806&format=png&auto=webp&s=8c527753dc62ab00756c8a32fa16134b91df8821
6/ This will mean APIs like IFTTT/ZapiePayment APIs/Banking APIs/IoT APIs etc can now seamlessly interoperate with Blockchains through Overledger. You can integrate pretty much any tech and API into Overledger
https://preview.redd.it/7f35q465wz751.png?width=1199&format=png&auto=webp&s=09dd7480212eb44903a683e81ecb9878ff077fbe
7/ Quant's approach is superior, enabling scalable interoperability, can connect any blockchain / existing network, future proof and without imposing limitations / requiring connected chains to fork their code
See https://twitter.com/CryptoSeq/status/1270237869043572737
and this article https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/quant-networks-overledger-part-two-the-layers-of-overledger-ea23a7148af1
8/ Every Blockchain has their own advantages and disadvantages. Why compromise on one platform when with Multi-chain Applications (MAPPs) you can combine the best features from multiple? Why have the risk and limitations of Vendor Lock in?
9/ Only Overledger enables Treaty Contracts, where you can deploy, query and execute multi-chain smart contracts. Bridge and extend smart contracts across multiple blockchains.
10/ Overledger Network is due to launch in a few days and is a Network of Networks, which allows enterprise and communities stakeholders to access and participate in a growing hyper-connected decentralised ecosystem
https://preview.redd.it/00z37ih7wz751.png?width=679&format=png&auto=webp&s=b073064f717953e6329a07bc61f3d77dd334f643
11/ Enterprises, banks, central banks, trading venues, etc will be able to host their own secure dedicated gateways, enabling secure connectivity to permissioned networks, permissionless networks, ecosystems, consortia and other distributed technologies.
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/the-network-of-networks-scalable-interoperability-to-unleash-the-true-potential-of-blockchain-c54e7d373d2d
12/ Community members will also be able to run an Overledger gateway to further enhance the scalability, decentralisation and optimise network latency, providing enterprises, developers and users choice to use the closest gateway when accessing permissionless blockchains.
13/ The Overledger gateways will create a scalable p2p network that shares the transaction and volume between participants and chooses the closest or largest node to transact with
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/how-the-overledger-network-community-treasury-powers-the-network-of-networks-b716b01d8284
14/ Quant will be open sourcing the connectors so that anyone can connect their favourite blockchain to Overledger Network and benefit from increased adoption from the Enterprises, Developers and users of all the existing connected blockchains / networks.
15/ Partners: Quant have partnered with SIA, the leading financial network provider in Europe and both companies are confident that this development will play an integral part in building the financial infrastructure of the future globally
https://www.sia.eu/en/media-events/news-press-releases/quant-network-and-sia-successfully-tested-blockchain-interoperability
16/ SIA provide a private financial network which is the backbone of the European financial market. SIA and SWIFT are the only 2 providers for the Eurosystem Single Market Infrastructure Gateway, granting access to all RTGS, Securities and Instant Payment transactions for Europe.
17/ Overledger is integrated into SIAChain part of that private financial network (SIAnet) that is the backbone of the european financial market, enabling the 580 banks, central banks, trading venues that are building projects on SIAChain to benefit from scalable Interoperability
18/ Some of the largest blockcain projects in the world are being launched on SIAChain, one of those is the Spunta project.
Spunta is a huge project consisting of the entire italian banking system and looks to further expand into europe
https://www.r3.com/videos/italian-banking-association-and-r3/

Dear Bitcoin.... We need to talk

Oh, Bitcoin...

You were the one. The only one! When you came along, you changed the world. You demarked a new era in history. By the time I met you, you were still a child. You had siblings, for sure (Litecoin, Namecoin, Peercoin), but - for me and most - it was all about you. I joined a tight-knit community - a bunch of computer nerds and liberty zealots with dreams of fixing money (and our fortunes). You had enraptured me! You combined everthing I cared about into one elegant solution. Though you were tiny, your footprint was large.
We felt a tremendous sense of responsibility back then. We needed to prove that something like this could work. That you could be adopted. That you were not a scam. We tested everything. We questioned much. We made it our personal mission to spread the word; to get you running on new platforms and place you into new hands. We felt as if we were so close to a free-market, home-grown solution to the decay brought on by banks and their monetary debauchery. It was very exciting!
And, it worked! You worked! You still work (as well as you were designed). You are still leading the charge for monetary freedom, and you are the reserve currency of the crypto ecosystem. Your open design and (relatively) extensive infrastructure make you easy to adopt, and easy to understand. You are essential for teaching the concept and proving the idea.

But...

You are no longer my idol. You no longer excite my passions. Though you have changed so little, I have changed too much. Your transparency - which has, thus far, been essential to your success - is now your greatest failing. You tell everyone and everything what we do together, everytime we do it! While I will still hodl you in private, I cannot be seen with you in public.
Monero is the one for me now. I know you know her well. She's long been present - always in the background, always improving. She's not nearly as experienced, nor as important, but she also doesn't talk even a fraction as much (no offense).
She has many challenges to overcome. She may yet disappoint me. ...but the spark is there - the community spirit she carries reminds me of you. The dream of individual autonomy - at least in financial affairs - is still alive with her. She is still willing to adapt herself to that goal. Some would even call her fungible to be with.
..........
You are a big part of me, and you always will be. I know you will still be around, still on top, still the center of attention. That's okay. I wish you all the best, all the success in the world. You are amazing in what you do, and you will keep on doing it! It makes me sad to split apart, but... I know we must pursue our own paths, now, towards that vision of a better future that once made us whole.
Love, -👤-

Goldman Sachs Reveals Plans For Releasing a Fiat-Backed Stablecoin

Goldman Sachs Reveals Plans For Releasing a Fiat-Backed Stablecoin

According To The Bank's Head Of Digital Assets, In The Next Decade Transactions Will Be Natively Happening On The Chain
One of the giants in traditional banking, Goldman Sachs, renewed its push to digitalize Wall Street’s future, as the bank is “exploring the commercial viability of creating a fiat digital token,” according to the new Global Head of Digital Assets, Matthew McDermott. The news puts Goldman Sachs among the banks, researching the possibility to issue their own crypto stablecoin, along with JPMorgan, Japanese Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group and the national banks of China, South Korea, and Canada.
McDermott, who was formerly a managing director in charge of Goldman Sach’s internal funding operations, replaces the crypto trader and quant Justin Schmidt, who operated the bank’s digital assets department since 2018.
“In the next five to 10 years, you could see a financial system where all assets and liabilities are native to a blockchain, with all transactions natively happening on the chain,” McDermott stated during an interview.
Most probably Goldman Sachs would utilize a blockchain or a DLT solution, like the Ethereum-based Quorum blockchain, currently developed by JPMorgan. McDermott has another strong advantage in his advocation for a new “financial system where all assets and liabilities are native to a blockchain”. This advantage is named Oli Harris. Harris is a former JPMorgan employee who previously worked on the development of the Quorum platforms. Currently, Harris is a part of McDermott’s digital assets team.
However, Goldman Sachs’ native stablecoin is still “in its early days”, according to McDermott. The bank’s head of digital assets also noted that the path Goldman Sachs would choose may stray away from the blockchain ecosystem.
Apart from the fiat-backed stablecoin, Goldman Sachs had its share of blockchain research prior to the possible asset development. The bank has been considering to offer trading and custodial services for cryptocurrencies since 2018, but CEO David Solomon noted that no clear plan had been created for implementing such concepts. However, in 2019 Goldman Sachs’ CEO announced that the bank is focusing on researching “tokenization" mechanisms of financial assets.
“We are watching the cryptocurrency market as it develops,” Solomon added.
Meanwhile, the banking giants worldwide are actively developing blockchain-based stablecoins. Signature bank became a pioneer, releasing its Signet stablecoin in 2018, while in June 2019 JPMorgan launched the JPM Coin. Goldman Sachs, however, distanced themselves until now, calling the crypto market "a bubble, similar to the dot-com era".
However, the nature of bank stablecoins is aimed at institutional investors and it’s still unclear if some of the stablecoins would be available to the public. Also, the majority of crypto investors keep their skeptical stance on bank-issued stablecoins, as the assets would be centralized, meaning that banks would still have control over transactions. Bitcoin and other crypto assets key distinctive feature is to prevent centralized control over transactions, which may not be the case with bank-issued stablecoins.

Increasing Presence Of High Frequency Trading In Crypto Bitcoin’s 30-day volatility has fallen to 27.6% over the past 30 days, according to data from blockchain analytics firm intoTheBlock. "The cryptocurrency markets continue to stay eerily calm as volatility drops and traders continue to expect a big move," wrote Zack Voell in yesterday's market report for Coindesk. The prolonged period of low volatility price consolidation in bitcoin that we’ve witnessed in recent months is a result of an increasing presence of HFT firms in crypto in recent months as Bitcoin demonstrates increasing maturity as an asset class, according to James Banister, CEO, Market Synergy, a Zug-based infrastructure provider.
“From Jump to DRW, a lot of them [HFT firms] are diving in headfirst because of a lack of opportunities in the traditional high frequency, low latency trading,” said Frank Chaparro, News Director at The Block in a recent episode of The Sccop with Tarun Chitru, founder and CEO of Gau.....

As awareness is increasing for Quant after recent announcements, here is an overview and links to find more info about this fantastic project

As awareness is increasing for Quant after recent announcements, here is an overview and links to find more info about this fantastic project
1/ As awareness is increasing for @quant_network after recent announcements I encourage everyone to see the thread below providing more details around the project. Excellent Team, Tech, Use cases, Tokenomics, Partners has it all.

https://preview.redd.it/gbm8yhtbvz751.png?width=1345&format=png&auto=webp&s=1eb8953930cf676aa3caefa2ea94a9ac1c877723
2/ Quant’s Overledger Blockchain Operating System not only provides interoperability between all the leading Enterprise and Public Blockchains but also connecting the world’s networks to blockchain with just 3 lines of code.

https://preview.redd.it/9kmidjenqz751.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=ebac8c6534ec601394fc995143284b57d6137232
3/ Unlike other solutions, Overledger solves interoperability at scale without the overhead/bottleneck/single point of failure of adding another blockchain in the middle, nor does it impose restrictions / require blockchains to fork their code to connect.
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/what-is-a-blockchain-operating-system-and-what-are-the-benefits-c561d8275de6
4/ Overledger is not a blockchain itself, but an OS that runs on top of multiple blockchains, providing a platform to build and use multi chain applications and abstracts all of the complexities involved with integrating with all the different blockchains
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/blockchain-operating-system-learning-from-the-past-to-build-a-better-future-92142c823d30
5/ #Interoperability is more than just Blockchain-to-Blockchain. True Interoperability is Any-to-Any.@quant_network are launching a universal connector for Overledger which allows for any API to connect to any Blockchain through Overledger.
https://preview.redd.it/0tax2hqsqz751.png?width=806&format=png&auto=webp&s=397bc6416262978bf5e59d67e9d5074032d86e55
6/ This will mean APIs like IFTTT/ZapiePayment APIs/Banking APIs/IoT APIs etc can now seamlessly interoperate with Blockchains through Overledger. You can integrate pretty much any tech and API into Overledger
https://preview.redd.it/gg4lrycuqz751.png?width=1199&format=png&auto=webp&s=23a344e7086c63d1d4b269cae989bb1b2c577a28
7/ Quant's approach is superior, enabling scalable interoperability, can connect any blockchain / existing network, future proof and without imposing limitations / requiring connected chains to fork their code
See https://twitter.com/CryptoSeq/status/1270237869043572737
and this article https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/quant-networks-overledger-part-two-the-layers-of-overledger-ea23a7148af1
8/ Every Blockchain has their own advantages and disadvantages. Why compromise on one platform when with Multi-chain Applications (MAPPs) you can combine the best features from multiple? Why have the risk and limitations of Vendor Lock in?
9/ Only Overledger enables Treaty Contracts, where you can deploy, query and execute multi-chain smart contracts. Bridge and extend smart contracts across multiple blockchains.
10/ Overledger Network is due to launch in a few days and is a Network of Networks, which allows enterprise and communities stakeholders to access and participate in a growing hyper-connected decentralised ecosystem
https://preview.redd.it/u8l4yoh6rz751.png?width=679&format=png&auto=webp&s=a3d7618dd2e86e8bb1944d9da5224b75652e04c4
11/ Enterprises, banks, central banks, trading venues, etc will be able to host their own secure dedicated gateways, enabling secure connectivity to permissioned networks, permissionless networks, ecosystems, consortia and other distributed technologies.
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/the-network-of-networks-scalable-interoperability-to-unleash-the-true-potential-of-blockchain-c54e7d373d2d
12/ Community members will also be able to run an Overledger gateway to further enhance the scalability, decentralisation and optimise network latency, providing enterprises, developers and users choice to use the closest gateway when accessing permissionless blockchains.
13/ The Overledger gateways will create a scalable p2p network that shares the transaction and volume between participants and chooses the closest or largest node to transact with
https://medium.com/@CryptoSeq/how-the-overledger-network-community-treasury-powers-the-network-of-networks-b716b01d8284
14/ Quant will be open sourcing the connectors so that anyone can connect their favourite blockchain to Overledger Network and benefit from increased adoption from the Enterprises, Developers and users of all the existing connected blockchains / networks.
15/ Partners: Quant have partnered with SIA, the leading financial network provider in Europe and both companies are confident that this development will play an integral part in building the financial infrastructure of the future globally

Coinsquare payera 2,2 M$ à la suite d’un règlement avec la CVMO

Il s’agissait d’une première poursuite du régulateur à l’encontre d’une plateforme de négociation cryptée.
Dans un règlement qui vise à donner un coup de fouet au secteur naissant de la cryptomonnaie et à sécuriser son programme de dénonciation, la Commission des valeurs mobilières de l’Ontario (CVMO) a sanctionné la plateforme de négociation de cryptomonnaie Coinsquare Ltd. et plusieurs dirigeants.
Le régulateur a déterminé que la société avait falsifié son volume de transactions, menti à ce sujet et exercé des représailles contre un dénonciateur interne. À la suite d’une audience virtuelle, un comité d’audition de la CVMO a approuvé un règlement avec Coinsquare et ses dirigeants qui comprend plus de 2,2 millions de dollars (M$) de sanctions et de frais, ainsi que des interdictions de pratique.
L’entreprise a admis avoir violé les règles sur les valeurs mobilières en déclarant un volume de transactions gonflé, généré par un algorithme interne qui a produit 840 000 « wash trade », une forme de manipulation du marché dans laquelle un investisseur vend et achète simultanément les mêmes instruments financiers afin de créer une activité artificielle et trompeuse sur le marché. Ces transactions impliquaient 590 000 Bitcoins, représentant 90 % de l’activité de négociation déclarée de la plateforme.
La CVMO a également constaté que l’entreprise avait fait des déclarations trompeuses en déclarant un volume fictif lorsque des clients ont fait part de leurs inquiétudes sur Reddit. Coinsquare a également exercé des représailles contre un dénonciateur interne qui avait fait part de ses inquiétudes sur le volume suspect à la direction générale. L’entreprise a mis fin à l’emploi du dénonciateur.
En réglant l’affaire, l’entreprise a admis s’être livrée à des manipulations de marché en signalant des volumes de transactions gonflés, en trompant les clients sur le volume et en prenant des mesures de rétorsion contre un dénonciateur.
Le PDG Cole Diamond et le fondateur, président et directeur technique Virgile Rostand, ont admis avoir facilité les violations de la loi ontarienne sur les valeurs mobilières par la société, tandis que l’ancien directeur de la conformité, Felix Maze, a admis ne pas avoir rempli son rôle adéquatement.
Dans le cadre du règlement, Cole Diamond et Virgile Rostand ont tous deux accepté de démissionner de la société. Ils ont respectivement payé 1 M$ et 900 000 dollars d’amendes.
Ils ont également accepté de payer 300 000 $ de frais.
Les deux dirigeants sont aussi interdits d’inscription pendant trois ans, et ils sont tous deux interdits de participer à la gestion de Coinsquare pendant trois ans.
En outre, Cole Diamond a reçu une interdiction de pratique à titre de gestionnaire , et Virgile Rostand a accepté pour sa part accepté une interdiction de deux ans de pratique à titre de gestionnaire (bien que l’accord comprenne une exclusion qui leur permettra d’être impliqué, après un an, dans une filiale de Coinsquare qui n’est pas un participant au marché).
Felix Mazer est également interdit de pratique pour un an et a accepté de payer 50 000 dollars pour son rôle.
« Bien que plusieurs employés aient exprimé des inquiétudes quant à la manipulation des volumes de transactions, Coinsquare a non seulement maintenu cette pratique, mais a menti aux investisseurs à ce sujet et a exercé des représailles contre un dénonciateur », a souligné Jeff Kehoe, directeur de l’application de la loi à l’OSC, dans une déclaration.
Dans le cadre du règlement, Coinsquare et sa filiale, Coinsquare Capital Markets Ltd, qui cherchait à s’inscrire auprès de la CVMO et de l’Organisme canadien de réglementation du commerce des valeurs mobilières (OCRCVM), sont tenus de « mettre en œuvre des améliorations substantielles en matière de gouvernance d’entreprise » avant de pouvoir continuer à chercher de nouveau à s’inscrire auprès de la CVMO et de l’OCRCVM.
Ces améliorations comprennent la mise en place de conseils d’administration indépendants, la nomination de nouveaux PDG et responsables de la conformité, la création d’un programme interne de dénonciation et la mise en œuvre de politiques et de procédures pour assurer la conformité.
« Ce processus permettra au personnel de la CVMO et de l’OCRCVM d’évaluer les demandes à la lumière de toutes les informations disponibles et de prendre ensuite une décision finale sur l’octroi ou le refus d’un nouvel enregistrement », a déclaré la CVMO.
Ce règlement est le premier cas de mise en application de la CVMO contre une plate-forme de négociation cryptée, et il fait suite à la récente enquête de la CVMO sur la défaillance de la plate-forme de négociation cryptée QuadrigaCX, qui a conclu que cette société était exploitée comme une chaîne de Ponzi.
« Être un innovateur sur nos marchés de capitaux n’est pas un laissez-passer pour ignorer la loi sur les valeurs mobilières de l’Ontario », a déclaré Jeff Kehoe dans une déclaration à l’issue de l’audition.
« Tous les participants au marché – y compris ceux des nouvelles industries – doivent agir de manière honnête et responsable », a-t-il ajouté.
L’affaire Coinsquare est également la première procédure du régulateur alléguant une violation des mesures anti-représailles adoptées dans le cadre du programme de dénonciation de la CVMO.
Jeff Kehoe a déclaré que cette affaire « est une étape importante, car c’est la première action que nous avons entreprise en cas de représailles contre un dénonciateur depuis que d’importantes protections pour les dénonciateurs salariés ont été ajoutées à la législation sur les valeurs mobilières de l’Ontario en 2016 ».
