Algorithmic trading is the idea that we create a program that makes trading decision suggestions for humans to execute. This is achieved by taking advantage of systematic biases and patterns within the market. The system created omits human intervention and thus, removes emotion.

Key learning objectives:

  • Define Algorithmic Trading

  • Discuss the different patterns and systematic biases within the market.

  • Explain the key requirements in developing an algorithmic trading model.
