Algorithmic Trading & Quantitative Finance (Live project)
I’m Sayantam Datta. I'm a Data Scientist at a FinTech company.
In this live project, you will work with me to execute algo trading strategies using Python. To build the hypothesis, you will do quant research to explore price movement relationship between different instruments on the basis of certain metrics.
To guide you in the project, I will also teach basics of quant finance, python and machine learning through live classes along with assignments of quant research. I will personally help you understand the fundamentals, complete the project and prepare for quant interviews.
