My background is in engineering but I have a passion for finance and coding. I use engineering principles to apply rigorous criteria to all my algorithms in order to minimize bias. I have been working on trading algorithms for 4 years now, live trading for the past 2 years. My goal is not to get rich quick, it's to beat the S&P500 on a risk adjusted basis using sound investment strategies that I can use in my own retirement accounts (Long only, no leverage) keeping drawdowns below 25% even though bear markets.
