For Quant Trader Open Source Research Backtesting Environments in Python with pandas
Once again, my NYC contact blows my mind with some amazing links. Thanks to him. This is another great source. For me Python is a complex topic as it is just another language to work with. Do I really need to do it? I don’t but it is seems to be pretty popular for quant research. It seems it is actually beating R but does that matter. Anyhow, Microsoft has made great strides to make Python compatible with .NET through IronPython. Don’t ask me about it as I don’t know the limits.
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
