PYPTUG Monthly Meeting: Automate Trading


Come join PYPTUG at out next monthly meeting (April 24th 2018) to learn more about the Python programming language, modules and tools. Python is the perfect language to learn if you've never programmed before, and at the other end, it is also the tool that no expert would do without.

Meeting will start at 6:00pm.
We will open on an Intro to PYPTUG and on how to get started with Python, PYPTUG activities and members projects, then on to News from the community.

This will be followed by the main talk.

Main Talk:
Using Python to Push Stock Selection information to you and automate trading

Ken Hogue
I have been using Python for several years specifically for stock research, backtesting strategies and trading automation. Recently I have started using python notebooks for documenting research.

The talk will cover three main topics.
The first is the use of python to push information to you for consistent evaluation. Customized stock charting and stock screening displayed on charts.

The second area is the use of Python for lights out automated Forex trading.

The third area is the use of python notebooks for machine learning and trading research.

Lightning talks!

We will have some time for extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration. If you'd like to do one, some suggestions of talks were provided here, if you are looking for inspiration. Or talk about a project you are working on.
