Why? Because Automated Trading not only provides a path to grow one’s wealth; It also presents your inner geek with the opportunity to delve into aspects of Artificial Intelligence and Bio-Inspired Algorithms (neural networks, genetic algorithms, genetic programming, reinforcement learning, fuzzy clustering, vector quantization, etc). Put more plainly: You get to play with cool stuff while earning some nice coin. It doesn’t get any better than that!
