Q. How much does this course cost?
A. Course fee is $395 or €300
Q. Is this course content heavy? (i.e. assignments' deadlines, coding, reading materials, etc)
A. There are no deadlines, you can do the course on your own pace. Four weeks should be enough to complete first three parts of the course based on 16 hr/week study. The last part is more complex and will require different amounts of time depending on your programming experience. There will be video and/or reading material with example code. Take your time to understand the code and use the concepts for your own tasks.
Q. Will you be going through some trading strategies?
A. Yes, several typical trading strategies will be used as examples. We will take a look at a moving averages (momentum), mean reversion and pairs trading.
Q. Will the presented strategies be profitable in real trading?
A. Most probably not. Many will not be even profitable in backtest. The goal of the course is to learn how to develop your own strategies.
Q. Will there be some form of (after course) support?
A. Of course. You will be able to ask questions via e-mail.
Q. How long will I get support?
A. Payment for the premium content gives you 6 month of support after starting the course.
Q. I will probably have a lot of questions. How much support can will I get?
A. I reserve 2 hours per student for support. Most require less, some require more. I am prepared to go up to 4 hours where needed.
Q. Could you write an example for my trading strategy or something not included in the course material?
A. In some cases, yes, if there is sufficient support time left.
Q.I have coded this strategy and it runs without errors. Still I'm unsure that all calculations are correct. Could you verify my code for correctness?
A. Unfortunately this is a very difficult task, involving understanding and repeating all calculations step-by-step, which is essentially the same as rewriting the code from scratch. This is beyond the scope of course related support.
Q. Can I download and keep the course materials? (i.e. notes, video lectures, codes, etc.)
A. Yes you can keep everything. You will also have lifetime access to the course material on the site. A kind request to keep the premium content for your own use.
Q. Is there anything you can suggest that I do in order to maximize the learning benefits?
A. I believe that learning by doing is the most effective way. Decide on what your own applications are going to be (building a database, backtesting an idea, getting data from the web etc.) and reserve enough time for experimenting.
