Build a Professional Trading System using Amibroker by JB Marwood
How many traders have you seen who make consistent income from stock markets every month? Well, most of you wouldn’t have seen any. But still, trading in financial markets is one of the most lucrative business over the years. The reason is simple, once you learn how to do it no one can stop you from becoming the next stock market millionaire. But unfortunately, people spend a lot of time and money and reach nowhere. And finally, they QUIT!
Let’s accept the fact that in order to get an edge in this extremely competitive environment, you need to do something different. Having a firm grasp of technical analysis or chart reading is not enough, this age of super computers has introduced algorithms, machine learning and artificial intelligence in the financial markets. With the help of technology, even amateurs can make an absolute killing on the stock market.
In this course, you will learn how to build a professional algorithmic trading system using Amibroker. The course is designed in a Do it Yourself (DIY) fashion where you can follow step by step instructions and create your own profitable system.
For those who don’t know about algorithmic trading, the idea behind it is quite simple. An advanced computer program (known as an algorithm) monitors stock prices and signals trading opportunities based on the rules defined. Previously, buying and selling stocks required you to either constantly monitor stock prices and keep an eye out for new stocks, or hire someone to do it for you. Algorithmic trading allows you to take all the hassle out of buying and selling stocks, you can just sit back and let the computer program do 90% of the work for you. It’s that simple.
Amibroker software is a market leader when it comes to designing and creating trading systems. Its robust set of features and extremely powerful backtesting engine can help you do wonders. Although this course is designed specifically for Amibroker users, yet you can apply the same concepts in any other software too.
