SUMMARY: This project aims to construct and test an algorithmic trading model and document the end-to-end steps using a template.
INTRODUCTION: This script aims to replicate the Basic Trend Following example found in chapter five of the book Learn Algorithmic Trading by Sebastien Donadio and Sourav Ghosh. The script seeks to validate the Python environment and package requirements for running these code examples successfully. The eventual goal is to integrate various example code segments from the book into an end-to-end algorithmic trading system.
Dataset ML Model: Time series analysis with numerical attributes
Dataset Used: Sharadar US Equities and Fund Prices from Quandl/Nasdaq Data Link
