Quantopian on Github: Open-Source Tools

In addition to the powerful platform that Quantopian provides, they have open-sourced some of their tools on Github which means they are able to be cloned for personal use and experimentation.

Their approach to algorithmic trading is very refreshing given the Wall St culture to keep all intellectual property (IP) secret – and rightfully so due to the competitive nature of the markets.

That said, Quantopian is approaching the markets as a crowd-sourced hedge fund and leverages the IP of many to construct profitable algorithmic strategies.

As a result, they are following the culture of many Silicon Valley to open-source their most common tools and social coding to improve upon them.
