Open Source Meets Quant Trading
Modern technologies are making it possible for anyone to build, test and deploy their own quant trading strategy. Essential resources for developing trading algorithms are available online for free, including coding platforms, historical data sets and back-testing tools. At the same time, institutional investors are exploring new ways to crowd-source their investment strategies by tapping into a growing number of independent quant traders around the world. This panel will feature several of these emerging quant trading platforms and discuss the opportunities they create for both new traders and seasoned veterans.
