Algorithmic Trading Course
Algorithmic trading is the way of the future. It is the process of utilising computers, programmed to follow a defined set of instructions for placing trades, with the goal of generating profits at a speed and frequency which we humans are simply incapable of matching. The defined set of rules are based on timing, price, quantity, and/or any mathematical model. Apart from the obvious profit potential, algo-trading makes markets more liquid and eliminates the outside, unseen forces of emotion and human error.
We have designed this course to equip you with the knowledge and tools necessary to take your trading career to the next level. This course is not for the faint of heart, as its rigorous yet rewarding curriculum is meant to challenge you to unlock potential you didn’t even know you had.
Join our certified Head of Quantitative Trading, Alberto Pallotta, on this exciting journey into the future, as he introduces you to the world of Algorithmic Trading.
Developing algorithmic trading strategies is different to traditional trading methods. The focus is on developing trading systems which follow a logical sequence of rules, removing the discretionary aspect of trading entirely. It circumvents traditional issues arising from human trading psychology, which is one of the biggest factors for why traders fail.
Though Systematic trading has been around for decades, the ability to process information and react much quicker than a human can, as well as the ability for a system to follow a defined set of instructions for placing trades, means that systematic trading is widely regarded as the wave of the future.
Currently, algorithmic trading is more frequently used by big institutions and professional traders, but the rise in machine-learning and Artificial Intelligence has supercharged its capabilities and has only increased its popularity immensely – a trend, we believe, is only likely to continue to increase as the marriage of systematic trading and Artificial Intelligence and machine-learning becomes more mainstream.
At London Trading Institute, we give you the rare and unique opportunity to learn directly from a certified quant, Alberto Pallotta, who has the knowledge, passion, experience and a verified track record within this sphere. He has developed over one hundred algorithmic trading strategies which he deploys daily to trade large, live funds.
