One of the unique and awesome features of Quantopian has been their lecture series which focuses on teaching specific topics on quantitative finance for building algorithms on their platform.
The lectures are updated on a regular basis and developed in collaboration with top-tier universities so the curriculum is on par with classes being taught in academia.
I am working through the lectures and been enjoying them so please keep up the great work, Quantopian!
I have been following the Chat with Traders podcast for ideas and particularly enjoyed their series with Quantopian.
The series gets into the details on alpha factors, portfolio optimization and machine learning which are all core concepts in algorithmic trading.
Kudos to Aaron for this interview and Chat with Traders, please keep up the great work!
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!
Re-installed WP site, so please check back for updates soon!
