      "I am starting an Algorithmic and High-Frequency desk later on, so for me the best (part) was to get the actual experience and the knowledge on how to implement the strategies that would be useful on my own desks. In this program, you learn from the basics to advanced statistics. It is an amazing experience because you learn to work on the advanced trading platform which is used by many trading desks. The faculty is very helpful and interactive and quite fast in replying to your doubts. The course is value for money keeping in mind the practical side of the course - you become a highly effective Algo trader. (I) would recommend (this course) to anyone who wants to be an Algorithmic trader."
