Voice-assisted trading

Recommended Posts

Although I don't use voice assistants, here are my thoughts:

  1. How accurate is your voice assistant? For example if you say, "Sell 1 share of Apple," and it replies, "Sure, I can help you sell apples," that could be a problem.
  2. How fast is your hardware that supports your voice assistant? For example if you have a Bluetooth wireless earpiece connected to a device that, in turn, connects wirelessly to your broker-dealer's trade server, you have 2 layers of connectivity that are vulnerable to interference and likely slower than a straight high speed hardwired connection.
  3. I suspect that a one-click trading button, an assigned hot key, or an auto-trading algorithm running on a hardwired desktop are tough to beat.

Hi @JohnnyRy,

These are super interesting points you raise. Do you think it would improve trading efficiency of placing/executing a trade if a voice-assisted trading assistant was used in such a way?

Alternatively, do you think it would help with your chart set up on mobile devices?

I'm really curious to know the opinion of others on this topic... 

Thank you

I believe it depends upon a given trader's strategy and preexisting method of placing orders. For example, simultaneously manually trading a basket of instruments could be daunting... especially if those instruments were in different markets and/or different trading platforms. It would certainly be easier to simply bark out, "Buy 1 standard lot of spot EURUSD at market price and sell 5 contracts of EURUSD futures at market price!" Having said that, I would want a voice assistant to operate at least with the speed of ChatGPT.

On the other hand, an auto-trading algorithm (bot) can send an order before a trader can say, "bot." Truth be told, this is how I actually trade. Also, manually trading a single instrument in a single market and in a single platform by way of one click or hot key is likely tough to beat. Everything has its costs and benefits, of course. In 2012, a professional quant (or quants) 440 million USD due to an algo error: https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-19214294. Professional hot key traders have fallen asleep at the wheel and lost tens of millions as well. I haven't heard of any voice assistant errors... yet.

I've actually completely avoided trading on mobile devices. What I do use a mobile device for, and why I don't trade with it is posted at:

I don't believe that implementing voice assisted trading will solve the wireless connection integrity issues posted in that thread.

I hope some more traders will reply to this thread if they have a real solution.

Hi Community, 

Are there any traders that use voice-assisted trading tools for their trading? How have you find the quality of the commands/tools itself? 

I'm interested to hear your experiences. 

Thank you for your help! 

I think this is possible from technology perspective.

but I'm concern on its reliability. so i will skip it in live trading.

    • How Merlin Is Addressing Bitcoin Scalability With A Unique Layer 2 Approach If you've been around the crypto world for a while, you're likely familiar with the limitations of Bitcoin's Layer 1 and its scalability issues. Over time, we've seen various innovative proposals like Wormhole's unique approach to address these limitations. In this context, Merlin Chain caught my attention. It's a project that aims to tackle Bitcoin's scalability challenges by offering a Layer 2 solution built on the ZK-Rollups model. This translates to faster and cheaper transactions while maintaining security through a decentralized oracle network with anti-fraud measures. Developed by the well-established Bitmap Tech team, Merlin Chain boasts a market cap exceeding $500 million. Their key objective has always been to empower existing Bitcoin assets by enabling them to interact seamlessly on the Layer 2 network. I believe backing from 20+ prominent VC firms like OKX Ventures and ViaBTC suggests confidence in Merlin Chain's future. MERL was launched as the first token on Bitget's pre-market trade platform and had a commendable price action. Is Merlin Chain's Layer 2 solution a long-term solution to this issue? Let's hear your candid opinions in the comments section below! Cheers! #Bitcoin #btc #halving #transactions #merlin #merl #bitget #web3 #wormhole
    • As the crypto sector undergoes transformation, Asia emerges as a formidable player alongside the established giants of the US and Europe. With significant investments and a growing user base, the region's potential for dominance is unmistakable. Leading this movement is Dubai, pioneering crypto adoption with its favorable regulations, attracting crypto exchanges focused on the region. A standout in this field is Bitget, Asia's largest web3 wallet provider, boasting a user base of over 19 million. Through regular events, Bitget cultivates community engagement, recognizing and rewarding the trust and loyalty of its users. One such event, the ongoing "Bitget Super Savings," offers over $20,000 worth of hot tokens across various categories, providing users with an opportunity to enrich their crypto portfolios. For those in South Asia, Bitget extends an invitation to participate in this ongoing event. Seize the chance to earn free hot tokens before the event concludes on April 26th. Good luck!
    • It is ideal that crypto currency exchanges as the admisnistrators of users’ funds should account to them from time to time through transparency reports that can be drafted atleast at the end of every quarter.  Platforms like Bitget have dropped theirs and their growth is pretty impressive. Both spot and derivative volume have grown exponentially. This is a testament to the fact that the team has been doing the good work. In Q1 of 2024, the CEX’s spot trading volume increased by a whopping 113% peaking about $160 billion and the futures trading volume was at about $1.4 trillion signalling a 146% increase.  In march, the platform witnessed the most remarkable growth thus far in the derivative market making it the 3rd largest derivative trading platform for the first time since december 2022.  The user base has also trumped up from the previous 20 million to 25 million users globally.  This demonstrates pure positive social sentiment and traction. In a similar vein, through the course of the previous quarter, the platform added about 186 new tokens, this has placed its number of tokens at 750+ tokens available and 820+ spot tokens.  Most of the listings were relatively very early and some investors made fortunes off it. The launchpool has also witnessed impressive growth, a total of 7 launchpools were done and this led to an increased demand for its native token $BGB. $Bgb has been on steroids since the last quarter, breaking ATHs and establishing new ones. Bitget applauds consistency and security, its Proof of reserve has also grown to about $612 million since March. With this type of security framework users confidence will be instilled to further use Bitget. Here's some proof of the above; https://twitter.com/TokenInsight/status/1767010819282526267
