Quantitative trading is a trading strategy that uses mathematical models and algorithms to identify and execute trades.
Quantitative trading, also known as algo trading, is a method of executing orders using automated pre-programmed trading instructions that take into account variables like time, price, and volume. This type of trading aims to use mathematical models and formulas to identify trading opportunities and execute trades when certain market conditions are met. Quantitative trading can be applied in all financial markets, including stocks, futures, forex, and also cryptocurrencies. High-frequency trading (HFT), a type of quantitative trading, is known for using sophisticated algorithms and high-speed data networks to execute rapid market trades.
