A 32 bit version of the popular Instance based Machine Learning program,
particularly for use with TradeStation 8 and other 32 bit programs. The
INSTANCE.DLL is used to add Pattern Matching facilities to Tradestation. The
type of pattern matching supplied in this DLL is called Instance Based Learning
(IBL), or nearest neighbour learning. IBL is a type of machine learning paradigm
that fits somewhere between neural networks and linear regression. This system
is based on IB1, a "classic" machine learning program.
Further features of DLL are:
- Enhance Tradestation programs by adding pattern
matching capabilities. Match your past best trades with new data to gain added
confidence to make the trade. Avoid situations like previous bad trades.
Automate this pattern matching to find known patterns with known results.
- Data Base The DLL uses a data base of previously stored cases to
match new example with. A "closeness" or resemblance score is returned with a
match. You can add as many or as few "important" examples to the data base as
you like. With each case is stored a number or a past decision. The number may
reflect a future price or some other value to be predicted. The decision may
hold an action like buying or selling.
- No Tedious Training Required. The Instance Based Learning
techniques uses a simple distance metric to find "close" cases. It is the
particular selection of stored cases that gives it power - not a training
algorithm as with other techniques like neural networks.
- Instance Based Learning has a proven history and been used
successfully in many domains to do pattern matching, prediction and
classification. A list of publications is provided to help you use the DLL
- Use with Historical and Real time systems. Do pattern matching with
both Historical and Real time systems without changing the code.
- Fast and Unlimited. The system uses a hashing scheme to store data
and so lookup is fast. All memory is dynamically allocated and virtually
unlimited, the only limits are what windows can supply.
- Interfacing. The DLL can be used with any Windows application, not
just Tradestation. A Visual Basic and C interface is provided so you can build
custom applications linked to Tradestation. With the interface you can do
complex calculations or add interfaces to your Tradestation systems.
- Use with Hashnums32 DLL and Qlsnums32 DLL. This DLL can be used
with Hashnums.dll and QlsNums.dll to provide an even more sophisticated Easy
Language programming environment.
- Debugging Tool AAA Visual Basic program is provided with an easy to
use windows interface to the DLL. The program can be used to discover what the
DLL can do without having to write any code. The program can also be used as a
real time debugging tool.
