What Is Algorithmic trading?

Algorithmic trading is a method of executing orders using automated pre-programmed trading instructions accounting for variables such as time, price, and volume.

It involves making trading decisions based on pre-set rules that are programmed into a computer. Python is often used for algorithmic trading due to its ability to handle complex calculations and its flexibility. Algorithmic trading strategies can be used to find potential trades and optimise the timing of trades.

Developing algorithmic trading strategies is called backtesting.
