Do It Yourself – Website Tutorials
In this video, I will show you how to build your own stock pricing database in PostgreSQL using Python. Building your own database is critical so that you can have fast and easy access to market data and ultimately become a self-sufficient algo-trader.
The process I will show you to get started is fairly simple. I’ll be using a couple of popular Python libraries, SQLAlchemy and Panadas, and will get this done with less than 100 lines of actual code, which you can of course also copy from my GitHub page at:
This topic was suggested by a viewer in the comments sections of one of my videos, and I’m taking some inspiration from a chapter in Andreas Clenow’s book Trading Evolved.
