Trading Strategies using Python

This course examines different approaches to building trading strategies across all asset classes. Using Python you will learn how to interact with market data to perform data analysis and find trading signals. We will look at advanced strategies to maximize trade performance and examine the statistics around testing and evaluating trade performance.

The first day of the programme begins with an overview of trading strategies and outlines various approaches used to look for trading opportunities. Through workshops we will implement data analytics using Python standard libraries including Pandas and Scipy.

On day two we investigate how to generate trading signals and analyze some of the dangers of overfitting the data. A workshop will focus on how to implement these trading signals in practice using real data. The afternoon examines methods for evaluating the performance of the trading strategies alongside methods of execution. We finish by exploring more advanced trading strategies and Machine Learning techniques in trading.
