FAQs
Q. How do I create my trading algorithm?
A. Trading Algorithms can be created using the backtesting system here.

Q. Which programming language is required to create algorithms?
A. No programming language is required. A lot of functions are already there in the system with examples on how to use them. Reading and Understanding the Examples is important.

Q. How many algorithms do I need to submit?
A. We will be evaluating all your algorithms meeting our criterion. The more the merrier. These will be tested for correlation so that similar algorithms are not selected by a participant. Only unique algorithms count.
