How to use Python Requests with simulation trading sites(ja)
Stock trading using algorithms has become far more accessible to programmers. However managing deals, orders and trades is another key part to trading. In this talk I will demonstrate methods of how to use HTTP POST and GET commands to interface to a sandbox trading site. スライドの内容は英語で、トークは日本語で開催する予定です。
By the end of this talk, you will learn the following: -What a deal management system is -The complexity to build a system -How to find and connect to sandbox trading systems -Learn basic skills to automatically login to a site using the Requests library to POST and GET data
Having a system to manage your orders, positions and track your profits and losses is another important part to doing online trading. Here I will discuss the importance of having a deal management system and the complexities of building such a system. We will instead learn how to turn a sandbox trading system into a trading simulator by using HTTP GET and POST requests. This is a very safe and fast way to start learning how to trade without needing to have a paid brokerage account or use systems that cost money. For this talk, I will focus on using a free sandbox site and the concept of how to build your own python API / Application
