I learned about Auquan through college placement cell. A couple days later I tried it out and it was fun. I’m more of a coder than a trader so in the beginning I wasn’t super sure what I was doing. I was playing around and put a lot of faith in the computer to figure out the parameters itself. In the meanwhile, I learned about how the stock market works and that finance actually has a lot of pretty cool math behind it.
