My name is Rodolfo. For a while now, I have contemplated
the idea of learning how to trade using algorithms.
Nevertheless; I'm new to python, new to finance, new to algorithms.
I'm communicating through this channel seeking advice.
Do I need to go back to school and create an academic path to finally begin trading in Quantopian?
I need to know (as Marc Anthony song goes) I need to know because
I find algorithmic trading fascinating to learn and to earn as well.
I know there is a help for beginners in the site.
Did you guys ever watched that movie I think is (Margin Call) in the conference room the CEO of the fund says,
"Explain it to me as if you were talking to a kid or talking to a golden retriever"
Well, Not necessarily. I understand that my personal commitment and self discipline will play a large part. I guess
I need to hit the python programming classes or find a programming boot camp. aghhrrr! Why did I hear about algorithmic trading, I hope it was not a mistake from my part to want to enter this complicated field.
Ok. But enough with myself pity. Negativity never helped anyone succeed and be happy. So what do you guys think?
Thank you very much!
