Algorithmic Trading

Who are we?

Our Algorithmic Trading Team aims to find ways in which programming can assist investors and help them make better decisions. As the only club of its kind at the University of Michigan, we research different strategies that hedge funds and quantitative trading firms around the world use. 

Sectors

Branding Backtesting

This group is developing a program which allows the other sectors to test their strategies against historical stock data to understand how they perform.

Sentiment Analysis

The Sentiment Analysis team is implementing a program that will determine whether recent news about a stock is positive or negative from social media such as Twitter, Reddit, Stocktwits, etc.

Pairs Trading

Our Pairs Trading team is creating an algorithm that builds a portfolio of pairs of stocks. Each pair contains two stocks with similar characteristics and are compared against each other to determine buying and selling points for both assets.
