Algorithmic trading has taken the world by storm. Not only in financial markets, are we seeing widespread use of algorithms across different industries and in our day-to-day lives. The power of algorithms is that even simple algorithms or “rule-based” decision making have shown to perform well v/s the majority of manual portfolio managers, traders or investors who have to constantly deal with various challenges such as handling their emotions well and decision making under uncertainty. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the next big leap in technology revolution, and algorithms are the stepping stone to understand how AI works.
The Objective of this program is to lay the foundation blocks of algorithmic trading and to introduce participants to the fascinating world of “System Trading”. The participants will study some of the styles of Ed Seykota, Richard Dennis (of “Turtle Traders” fame), Linda Raschke, Ray Dalio who have successfully made above average market returns for more than 20+ years, using systems and rules, and made billions for themselves and their clients. The Program will cover aspects right from strategy ideation, design, development, testing and making the system live. It will touch upon aspects of technical analysis, fundamental analysis and derivative analysis which will go as inputs while making systems. This program will be covering analysing systems and test them for their robustness and their probability of success, and how to continuously upgrade and refine the systems. We will be showcasing live examples using Excel spreadsheet to make it hands-on and interactive.
