ANALYZE YOUR INVESTMENTS WITH PYTHON!Who wants to build long-term wealth needs to invest his capital. But nowadays investing isn't done in the same way as it was a couple of decades ago. Nowadays everything works with computers, algorithms, data science and machine learning. We already know that Python is the lingua franca of these fields. The people who don't educate themselves on this matter will be overrun by the development instead of benefiting from it.In the last volumes we learned a lot about data science and machine learning but we didn't apply these to anything from the real world except for some public datasets for demonstration. This book will focus on applying data science and machine learning onto financial data. We are going to load stock data, visualize it, analyze it and also predict share prices.The Bible of PythonWhy should you spend huge amounts of money and time just to read these 400-500 page books?

"Fletcher and Gardner have created a comprehensive resource that will be of interest not only to those working in the field of finance, but also to those using numerical methods in other fields such as engineering, physics, and actuarial mathematics. By showing how to combine the high-level elegance, accessibility, and flexibility of Python, with the low-level computational efficiency of C++, in the context of interesting financial modeling problems, they have provided an implementation template which will be useful to others seeking to jointly optimize the use of computational and human resources. They document all the necessary technical details required in order to make external numerical libraries available from within Python, and they contribute a useful library of their own, which will significantly reduce the start-up costs involved in building financial models. This book is a must read for all those with a need to apply numerical methods in the valuation of financial claims." –David Louton, Professor of Finance, Bryant University This book is directed at both industry practitioners and students interested in designing a pricing and risk management framework for financial derivatives using the Python programming language. It is a practical book complete with working, tested code that guides the reader through the process of building a flexible, extensible pricing framework in Python. The pricing frameworks' loosely coupled fundamental components have been designed to facilitate the quick development of new models. Concrete applications to real-world pricing problems are also provided. Topics are introduced gradually, each building on the last. They include basic mathematical algorithms, common algorithms from numerical analysis, trade, market and event data model representations, lattice and simulation based pricing, and model development. The mathematics presented is kept simple and to the point. The book also provides a host of information on practical technical topics such as C++/Python hybrid development (embedding and extending) and techniques for integrating Python based programs with Microsoft Excel.

Are you looking to automate your trading strategy? Are you looking for a more efficient way of completing your financial analysis? Python is the answer. While looking to gain summarize our knowledge on the subject, we realized that there was a lot of information available in books and the internet. However, there seemed to be too much information. There were 500-page textbooks on the subject that had very little practical use. They were pretty useless for beginners just like a dictionary is useless for anyone trying to learn a language. All these books had tons of theory with no step-by-step guide. There were a whole bunch of other blogs that had basic programming information with no relation to financial strategies. With this in mind, this book starts you off with a step-by-step guide to install Python on your computer; and plot/visualize relevant financial data. Later in the book, you can build on your basic knowledge to learn more about advanced financial analysis and trading strategies to move forward. This book is what you've been looking for.
