Conversations: Recommendations to Someone Starting out at CloudQuant

The CloudQuant team discusses their helpful thoughts for beginners on CloudQuant. We want to boost everyone starting out on our platform in their algo development and backtesting.

When we say that our free backtesting tools are "institutional grade" we really mean it. Every algo we run in our trading and investment strategies is proven in the same backtesting engine as the crowd uses. We rely on the scorecards, the reports, and the simulated trades to ensure that our trading is successful.

We generate our reports, monitor our systems, and do all sorts of tasks in Python. Python has overtaken the spreadsheet in CloudQuant.
