Intro to Technical Financial Evaluation with R


In this entry level workshop you will learn how to download and evaluate equities with the TTR (technical trading rules) package. We will evaluate an equity according to three basic indicators and introduce you to backtesting for more sophisticated analyses on your own. Next we will model a financial market's risk versus reward to identify the best possible individual investments in the market. Lastly, we will explore a non-traditional market, simulate the reward in the market and put our findings to an actual test in a highly speculative environment.
