R is a very powerful machine learning and data science scripting language.
R has got over 7000 statistical, machine learning and data science packages.
R is ideally suited to do machine learning on a financial time series data set and make predictions.
I have developed a course on Algorithmic Trading with R. You can take a look.
Today algorithms are trading against algorithms.
Do you remember the British Pound Flash Crash that took place last year?
In less than a minute GBPUSD fell more than 1000 pips wiping out many trading accounts.
Do you know the cause? The flash crash was caused by a rogue algorithm.
Days of manual trading are coming to an end.
If you want you want you can easily learn R and then use it in your trading.
MT4 and MT5 platforms lack any machine learning and artificial intelligence libraries.
It is daunting task to develop machine learning and artificial intelligence for MT4 and MT5.
The solution lies in using R and Python. Both are equally good.
I believe R is better. Python is trying to replace R but it will still take some time.
In this course on Algorithmic Trading with R, I show you how you are going to use the APIs provided by different brokers and use R.
I have made everything easy. We go step by step and even if you have never coded before you will face no problem.
