The Trading Bot in action
Have an entry level of Python
Have a minimal knowledge about trading strategies and financial markets
This course will guide you through the steps that will enable you to have a trading bot operating automatically. With Python, a commission free broker and your laptop you will have a trading bot performing real time orders into the stock market. Learn you way towards an automated trading bot that will be able to place orders following your own strategy, implemented by you, under your control and understanding.
This course includes a trading bot already programmed in Python3.
The course aims to explain how does the code work and how can you implement your strategy
All the code is explained so you can learn how it works (or simply run it!)
The trading bot is included, you will learn how to use and modify it – plug and play!
With a very basic level of Python you will be able to understand all the code
The trading strategy is explained and its theory introduced, without it being a finance course
This course goes straight to the point, without spending a lot of time on tools that you may not need
We will not be coding every line, as done in other courses, but we go straight to the point
This course works with Alpaca, which currently works with CFDs (stocks). It is not aimed to work with crypto currency or other platforms. You will finish the course with your bot running, as you can see at the introduction video.
