Found a forum post on Quantopian with an aggregate of recent strategies which I found interesting; specifically, the strategies (PEAD) focusing on time periods around earnings news since it is now earnings season.
Many of the strategies are based on academic papers, which are also worth a read for additional background on the topic. Again, kudos to Quantopian and all the great work they are doing to promote algorithmic trading!
I recently started researching algorithmic trading and got interested in the Quantopian platform, which includes a full development research, learning and development environment.
I have been using the platform for market research with the following tools:
1. Lectures & Tutorials – Lessons are presented with iPython notebooks
2. Extensive Data API’s – Utilized for backtesting
3. Development Environment – Develop and test algorithms
It is an impressive platform, and one that I highly recommend!
Please check back for more updates as I post more news on my progress.
For anyone looking to get up and running on Node.js, I recommend the Heroku tutorial which provides a quick guide on deployment and a good template for future use.
Granted, it does take some basic programming knowledge to get all the steps but otherwise, the tutorial is easy to complete. I especially enjoy the minimalist template with intuitive defaults and great styling out of the box.
Great job, Heroku and please keep up the good work!
