About Algorithmic Trading
Algorithmic trading is the process where ideas are turned into mathematical models and then coded into computer programs for systematic trading. It is a science where investment, trading, mathematics and computers sciences meet. The computer algorithms are designed based on the historical performance of the strategy back-tested against historical data. The Algorithmic Trading Course consists of three modules to equip course participants with relevant skills and algorithmic trading.
