Algorithmic Trading Ecosystem

With all the options available nowadays for algorithmic traders, many people entering this industry might feel overwhelmed on where to even start. To add on, algorithmic trading demands a diverse skillset, such as knowledge of financial markets, experience working with API's and understanding of data analysis, to name a few.

With that said, the Alpaca team is excited to host the virtual conference "An Insight into the Algo Trading Industry" on October 30, 2020 along with a series of conferences where we bring on fellow industry professionals to discuss the role each company plays in the ecosystem of Algo Trading Landscape.
