So I started my journey in the Quantopian world. I now start to understand how the research framework work, and even manage to make a strategy which managed to enter the contest (but extremely crappy with a score between 0 and 0.05 LOL).
Now that I have understood how to use the tools, I need to understand a bit more of finance (I am a theoretical physicist and basically have no background at all in finance). I looked a bit on the web to find some idea of strategies and useful factors. But I just even dont know where too look, which words I should type on google :-).
So can someone advise me some book which explain basic idea of finance and trading? I look more for lectures/articles/books which explain the context more than the math or the coding part. For example there is so many variable in the morningstar fundamentals, all look like Chinese cryptograms for me...
