This might be a commonly asked question. I am a 4th year Math/CS student and I have a basic understanding of the financial market and have taken several courses in financial math and economics. I am highly interested in Algorithmic Trading and I planning to do a research paper/ project on this topic. I hope that I can use this project as a leverage for me to get an internship position/ junior programmer position as an algorithmic trader.
So my question is this, where can I find good Algorithmic trading strategies online? Where are the good sources such as blogs and articles. I am currently reading two texts on Algo trading but neither of them give me a good source of strategies to test. It is ok if the strategies is not profitable because I just want to gain experience in backtesting and executing a paper trading system. I am really interested in using Algo in the Forex market, but I can code it in the equity market if they are the only one I can find.
Also if you are a trader who has algo trading ideas but want someone to code and back-test these ideas, I can also collaborate with you and we can both benefit
Thank you fellow traders, I hope to be hearing from you guys soon
