Boston Algorithmic Trading is for anyone interested in creating and using algorithms in the financial markets. We arrange monthly talks from practicing quants, algorithmic traders, trading technology experts, and academics. Our focus is practical, rather than theoretical. We enjoy talking about how to automate the purchase and sale of securities using statistics, machine learning, data mining, and algorithms.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
