Algo trading in Columbia?

Here is a nice conversation I had someone from my Meteup group:

At the same time i´m trading, i had been working for a CTA from Colombia, building the prop operation. In summary the project was recruit talented students from universities, and build relationships with the goverment. And it was carried out.


In Medellin, there is a lot of newbies traders, , and some of them are developing in Easy Language.

At the other side we have a huge network of Financial Labs at universities.

Even i build a relationship between one of them and TradeStation ( TradeStation Academic Program.).

but the point is this.

after 5 year trading by myself in a discretionary way, and working with CTA and Universities, finally i understood everything you show in your videos, about

Trading is Technology

Research and Development., and then this year i beginning learning about Python, C#, Data Science, Machine Learning and strong my math skills.

that´s my personal project, and then i knew you community

but at the same time , i want to help local universities with this field, about research and development that is the real job.

not trading, no gurus,

here, we have great universities, with infraestrucuture, and the goverment is backing projects about Science, Technology and Innovation, and I´m sure Algorithmic Trading is a great opportunity to build a new local sector to our economy.

my question is

how can i take advantage of your community to figure out how to carry out a local project to promote this kind of knowledge here.

I have a simple membership for my trading community plus i will have courses

do you have experience with University Projects?.

in summary how build research and development of quant models

i just posted these
