Algorithmic Trading

Category: Academic Related

The Algorithmic Trading Society was founded in March 2018 with the aim of bringing students together to develop their understanding of the application algorithms in a financially driven context.

In the 18/19 academic year we will introduce a financial machine learning lecture series in Python led by two PhD Computer Scientists. The weekly sessions will also consist of live trading. The first hour will consist of theory being taught and demonstrations of implementing the algorithms. The second hour will consist of live trading and group discussions regarding the market's behaviour. We hope to build a community of Algo traders that can help improve one another.

Whether you’re a novice to trading or a veteran Quant we welcome all to be part of the society.
