How many times have you created a strategy that performed well during backtesting, however failed to make money in the real markets? An essential course to create robust machine learning strategies which can be executed on trading platforms. This course teaches the data cleaning aspects on financial datasets and with real-world examples.

SKILLS COVERED

Data Engineering 

  • Financial data cleaning
  • Exploratory data analysis
  • Data types nuances
  • Survivorship & Look ahead Bias
Feature Engineering 

  • Triple barrier method
  • Dollar and volume bars
  • Stationarity
  • Fractional differentiation
Python 

  • Itertools
  • Numpy
  • Pandas
  • Matplotlib
  • Pickle

PREREQUISITES
You should be familiar with basic machine learning principles such as train and test datasets. There are no prerequisites as such and anyone who is familiar with financial markets data can enroll in the course.

AFTER THIS COURSE YOU’LL BE ABLE TO
Preprocess price data to resolve outliers, duplicate values, multiple stock classes, survivorship bias, and look-ahead bias issues.
Work with sentiment data to identify structural break and aggregate categorical features.
Examine fundamental data and resolve multiple data merging issues.
Create features and target variables for machine learning models.
Explain various challenges associated with the financial data

SYLLABUS

In this introductory section, you will learn the importance of data engineering and feature engineering which can be used either in your personal trading or in an institutional setting. Preprocessing of the financial dataset is essential to make it suitable for analysis. Extracting features from the datasets to feed into the machine learning algorithms, and setting the target variable for a particular ML problem increases the predictive power of your algorithm.

I really liked the course especially the Interactive Exercises. This has helped me get used to the syntax for different functions in Python. I enjoyed experimenting with the scripts in the Jupyter notebook that is integrated with the course. I also used the downloadable codes to get a hands-on experience of coding but I found the integrated notebook easier to use and experiment with the codes. The course is very well curated, nothing feels out of place, in fact, I have started to practically apply the learnings from this course in my day to day task as I deal with Data daily in my job

I really liked the content of the course provided on Quantra, especially in the Machine Learning (ML) related courses. The video units make it very easy to understand complex concepts of ML. They also provide you with downloadable codes at the end of the courses which can be used by you to experiment and learn on your own. This is not very common in the online teaching industry.

Quantra always has good content that is easy to understand! The best part about the course is that it is a mix of theory and practice, which is a great way to learn and grasp concepts, as opposed to reading books or articles.
