20th Anniversary Tour First Stop: Toronto

In partnership with Friedberg Direct, Canadian FX broker utilizing FXCM’s technology, FXCM is bringing algo trading to Toronto on 23 March, 2019. Join us for a seminar featuring professional quant traders presenting practical guidance on algorithmic trading.

Dr. Ernest Chan* will present his research on the relationship between order flow data and next-day price. In his research, Dr. Chan notes that the average next-day returns are almost monotonically increasing with the previous day’s order flow. Learn how order flow data can enhance your trading strategy and help predict where you should position yourself in the market to take advantage of future price action.

Shamsher Vellani*, CEO of Pisano Capital^, will explain his process for developing trading algorithms and talks about his experience trading with FXCM technology. He’ll provide some of his tips and best practices as a professional trader leaving you with actionable advice.

Additionally, FXCM will demonstrate connecting and trading through the REST API in an interactive presentation. They’ll also be giving out free data for testing and analysis to all attendees, so be sure not to miss this opportunity!
