What it does
Uses a moving averages to try and get returns certain stocks.
How we built it
We attempted to use BeakerNotebook for its polyglot facilities using a blend of Python and Java.
Challenges we ran into
Outputting our analytics data from python into Java caused problems. Hence, we decided to scrap Java (for the time being as our test data set is relatively small) and convert our algorithms into python code.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting expected results from python analytics.
What we learned
Understood the uses of APIs Understood the fundamentals of algorithmic trading
What's next for AlgoLabs
Improving our strategy to actually give positive returns Test again with more data Try and work in real-time
