A 9-to-5 can be an impediment. Last August, I took a year off from work to develop my skills. Over the past year, I enrolled in a three month data science boot camp, because data science tools can help with trading. After the data science boot camp, I enrolled in a six month algo trading course. Both courses were Python-intensive; hence, I also got an opportunity to sharpen my Python skills.

Now, it time to start looking for a job.

I have learned a lot in the past year. Sometimes, you have take several steps back to proceed forward.

Interesting to hear that you took the data science course . Nice. The also trading course - was this an online one or classroom one? If it was an online course, I would also like to do something similar. Can you share the details OR if you know of something else?

The trading program is the Executive Programme in Algorithmic Trading (EPAT), offered by Quantinsti. It's six month course, part-time course. Classes are held on the weekends (Friday and Saturday evenings, if you live in the U.S., or Saturday and Sunday afternoons, if you live in or near the Indian (IST) time zone). For me, classes were 12:30 a.m. to 3:30 a.m. EST, which was pretty rough for me. Sometimes, I would log off at 2:30 a.m. and view the remaining hour in the recording, which is delivered a day after the class ends.

Ah - this may not work for me as I am in Sydney, Australia. Would you be across any good Algorithmic Trading course which is delivered online? I will also google. Thanks.

The course is delivered online. You don't have to attend the live lectures. You can view the recordings of the classes. Further, if you don't want to enroll in EPAT, Quantinsti offers a la carte algo courses through Quantra. The Quantra courses are self-paced and interactive.

I purchased both, EPAT and Quantra. For me, they complement each other. However, you may not need both. It sounds like Quantra might be more appealing to you than EPAT.

Thanks "BA 21", that certainly helps. I will check on the suggested approach. Cheers!
