We were interested in data analytics and helping others through our knowledge of finance.
What it does
AlgoTrainer is an educational tool for budding algorithmic traders and finance enthusiasts. Through AlgoTrainer, users are able to design and test algorithms to buy and sell stocks based on simulations from past historical data (pulled from Nasdaq's API). After running the simulations on the data, AlgoTrainer provides the user the option of viewing their results through different forms of graphical representations. The user is able to view how their algorithm responds to different market conditions as well as the changes to their portfolio overtime.
