Why traders and finance professionals need to learn Python
Python’s growing popularity is evident in the vast number of libraries that support pretty much anything you will need as a trader:
reading, writing, cleansing, massaging, slicing/dicing data
◽ maths, stats and time series
◽ financial analysis: trading and quantitative finance, market data analysis, stock/derivative markets analysis, Bloomberg data access, execution engines, back testing, risk analysis, etc
◽ machine learning pipeline (e.g. predicting market prices)
◽ plotting and beautiful/interactive visualisations
◽ SQL support
◽ send emails
◽ web scraping (e.g. getting market prices online)
◽ task automation / scheduling
◽ Excel integration (if you really like Excel so much)
and other reasons for Python/Jupytr over Excel:
data manipulation — It is the data scientist’s
toolbox after all!
✔️Advanced visualisation capabilities — No more boring charts!
✔️ Better user experience
✔️ Big dataset processing — No more crashing!
✔️ Performance management — Making advantage of multiprocessing
✔️ Test Driven Development — Think quality!
✔️ Open source accessibility — “There is a lib for it!”
✔️ Error traceability
✔️ Easier automation
✔️ Self-documenting — Don’t underestimate the value of this!
