Developing Trading Robots

A very modern programming language used by more and more quantitative trading firms is R. It actually proves the opportunity to work and display very interesting concepts for traders and investors.

It is possible to do own calculations according to personal wishes and preferences. It is also possible to scale, analyse and calculate data with a lot of information and then send signals to the broker. In between there can be specific trading models for performance, risk and modeling.

There are some packages (there are more than 30.000 pre developed packages for this programming language R) even for daily trading (day-trading, per se similar to high frequency trading), when decision makers want to make their allocation decision daily on an more advanced basis, rather than a simple buy and hold strategy.
