### 你将学到什么

Understand the fundamentals of trading, including the concept of trend, returns, stop-loss and volatility

Use Google Cloud Platform to build basic machine learning models in Jupyter Notebooks

Use Keras and Tensorflow to build machine learning models

Build trading strategies using Reinforcement Learning techniques

### 课程概况

This Specialization is for finance professionals, including but not limited to hedge fund traders, analysts, day traders, those involved in investment management or portfolio management, and anyone interested in gaining greater knowledge of how to construct effective trading strategies using Machine Learning. Alternatively, this specialization can be for machine learning professionals who seek to apply their craft to quantitative trading strategies.

The courses will teach you how to create various trading strategies using Python. By the end of the Specialization, you will be able to create quantitative trading strategies that you can train and implement. You will also learn how to use reinforcement learning strategies to create algorithms that can update and train themselves.

To be successful in this Specialization, you should have a basic competency in Python programming and familiarity with pertinent libraries for machine learning, such as Scikit-Learn, StatsModels, and Pandas. Experience with SQL will be helpful. You should have a background in statistics (expected values and standard deviation, Gaussian distributions, higher moments, probability, linear regressions) and a basic knowledge of financial markets (equities, bonds, derivatives, market structure, hedging).
