Program details

Algorithmic trading is not well understood by a large segment of the financial community. To many, algorithmic trading, or “algo trading”, simply means “automated trading.” However, the term actually encompasses a wide variety of trading methods, strategies, and time horizons, and practitioners of one variation of algo trading may have little knowledge of another style.

In this webinar, Yatish Borole, a certified quant analyst, will provide a general introduction to algorithmic trading, give some examples of what strategies look like, and discuss some of the operational realities of algo trading.

Topics to be discussed:
  • The traders' death spiral & trading psychology.
  • How to build a powerful trading system.
  • Essential trading statistics - Testing strategy efficiency on live trading system Pnl
  • Evaluate your trading plan from historical data - Sample Python code for backtesting
  • Use an Indian broker API to automate your trading system.
