Machine Learning on DARWIN Datasets (MLD-I)

8 December 2017

Machine learning in essence, is the research and application of algorithms that help us better understand data. By leveraging statistical learning techniques from the realm of machine learning, practitioners are able to draw meaningful inferences from and turn data into actionable intelligence. Furthermore, the availability of several open source machine learning tools, platforms and libraries […]

$DWC 1-Minute Differenced Series

Mean Reversion Tests on DARWIN $DWC

9 July 2017

In a previous post – Quantitative Modeling for Algorithmic Traders – we discussed the importance of Expectation, Variance, Standard Deviation, Covariance and Correlation. In this post we’ll discuss how those concepts can be applied to DARWIN assets. As a practical example, we will employ a series of statistical tests to assess if DARWIN $DWC is […]
