DIY Quant strategies from the Quantopian Community
This talk will cover a practical overview of the breadth and characteristics of quant strategies built, backtested and shared in an open source community on Quantopian. We will cover basics of mean reversion, price momentum, value, sentiment and seasonality strategies as they can be built in python using freely available tools and data. We will also cover a brief progress report on live trading, from backtest to forward test to putting real money on the line, all in a browser-based open-source framework.
