Backtesting and execution are such key parts of algorithmic trading so choosing the wrong platform can have a huge impact on our trading.
There are loads of trading platforms available and a lot of considerations which need to be made when choosing one that suits our needs, so in this episode we’ll be discussing backtesting and execution platforms with Nitesh Khandelwal, department head at QuantInsti who also co-founded iRageCapital and iRage Global Advisory Services.
After our chat on algorithmic trading platforms we’ll also cover statistical arbitrage, high frequency trading and some interesting audience questions, so listen out for those.
I’m sure we all want to create trading strategies that perform better and last for longer but there are a number of issues we need to look out for when developing robust trading strategies, some are well-known and some perhaps aren't.
In this episode we’ll be talking with Perry Kaufman about strategy development and more specifically some of the issues that can catch us out when creating trading strategies. Perry raises some interesting points about optimization that may not be well known plus he shares loads of tips to creating more robust strategies.
Perry writes extensively on markets and strategies, having published fourteen books and has just released a new book on building algorithmic trading strategies, which we'll be discussing in this episode.
He has worked and consulted to a number of successful CTA, investment and prop trading groups, creating systematic trading and hedging programs.
This is also his 2nd appearance on the podcast, appearing as a guest way back in Episode 10.
