Beginner's Guide to Quantitative Trading

Beginner's Guide to Quantitative Trading | Quantitative Finance | Scoop.it

n this article I'm going to introduce you to some of the basic concepts which accompany an end-to-endquantitative trading system. This post will hopefully serve two audiences. The first will be individuals trying to obtain a job at a fund as a quantitative trader. The second will be individuals who wish to try and set up their own "retail" algorithmic trading business.

Quantitative trading is an extremely sophisticated area of quant finance. It can take a significant amount of time to gain the necessary knowledge to pass an interview or construct your own trading strategies. Not only that but it requires extensive programming expertise, at the very least in a language such as MATLAB, R or Python. However as the trading frequency of the strategy increases, the technological aspects become much more relevant. Thus being familiar with C/C++ will be of paramount importance.

A quantitative trading system consists of four major components:

Strategy Identification - Finding a strategy, exploiting an edge and deciding on trading frequencyStrategy Backtesting - Obtaining data, analysing strategy performance and removing biasesExecution System - Linking to a brokerage, automating the trading and minimising transaction costsRisk Management - Optimal capital allocation, "bet size"/Kelly criterion and trading psychology

We'll begin by taking a look at how to identify a trading strategy.
