I've been building automated trading systems in my free time for a couple of years now. Yes, I know - free time? Quantitative trading? What? --- Seems like a good point to reference this amazing quote I found on this quant trader guy's Github repo:
"First, ask youself if the allure of skimming a few pennies off the top of a corrupt system that will overtake your life, blacken your soul, and bankrupt you in the process is the best use of your talents. No? Good choice; back to Hacker News. Yes? Get a second opinion from your mother. I’ll wait."
Despite that, it's been a fun way to get better at Python and the data science stack. Some of my bots run on Robinhood, and Robinhood has no good way to get any insight on past performance or generate files for further analysis. So, I built a Python script to do it!
