New to this

Hi everyone,

I am very new to this, I am in second year university studying finance and got interested in algorithmic trading. 

I have no coding experience and fully understand that many here are seasoned professionals. Therefore, I would like to know if anyone can provide me  with any hints and tips on starting building my first algorithm on this platform and if there is anything I should know before I start.

I am open to any advice :)

Hi Vitaliy,

Welcome to QuantConnect!

I recommend you to first learn some python. QuantConnect has its own tutorial for using python for finance, but there are also countless other resources for learning python, like learnpython and codecademy.

Once you feel like you have a fair grasp on the basics of python, move onto the boot camps. Start off with the Buy and Hold Equities boot camp and then make your way through them. The boot camps will teach you how to use QC's algorithmic trading engine LEAN. They walk you through step-by-step building various strategies, like pairs trading and EMA crossovers.

I wish you luck on your journey. If you have any questions along the way, feel free to ask on the forums.

Best
Rahul
