About Workshop

Our Python for Algo-Trading 2-day Workshop is addressed to all who wish to learn Python and its application in finance with a particular emphasis on algo-trading. We will discuss all steps required to build an effective trading model (for stocks and FX pair trading), technical analysis, model backtesting, risk analysis, trade execution issues, potential problems, the importance of slippage, model profitability, and model adjustments. We will demonstrate an easy connectivity from home/office to major European and US Stock Exchanged.

A basic programming experience in Python is not required. We will be using Python 3.5 + pandas + NumPy and all codes will be available for download after the Workshop.
