Accelerating the pace of engineering and science

Automated Trading with MATLAB

Stuart Kozola, MathWorks

In this webinar we will present an example workflow for researching, implementing and testing an automated trading strategy. You will learn how MATLAB® and add-on products can be used for data gathering, preparation and visualization, model development, backtesting, calibration, integration with existing systems and ultimately deployment.
We look at each of the parts in this process and see how MATLAB provides a single platform that allows the efficient solution of all parts of this problem.

Specific topics include:

  • Data gathering options, including daily historic, intraday, and real-time data
  • Model building and prototyping in MATLAB
  • Backtesting and calibrating a model
  • Interacting with existing libraries and software for trade execution
  • Deployment of the final application in a number of environments, including .NET, JAVA, and Excel
  • Tools for high frequency trading, including parallel computing, GPUs, and C code generation from MATLAB
