Purchase of the print or Kindle book includes a free eBook in the PDF format
Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the financial industry, with a huge collection of accompanying libraries. In this new edition of the Python for Finance Cookbook, you will explore classical quantitative finance approaches to data modeling, such as GARCH, CAPM, factor models, as well as modern machine learning and deep learning solutions.
You will use popular Python libraries that, in a few lines of code, provide the means to quickly process, analyze, and draw conclusions from financial data. In this new edition, more emphasis was put on exploratory data analysis to help you visualize and better understand financial data. While doing so, you will also learn how to use Streamlit to create elegant, interactive web applications to present the results of technical analyses.
Using the recipes in this book, you will become proficient in financial data analysis, be it for personal or professional projects. You will also understand which potential issues to expect with such analyses and, more importantly, how to overcome them.
This book is intended for financial analysts, data analysts and scientists, and Python developers with a familiarity with financial concepts. You'll learn how to correctly use advanced approaches for analysis, avoid potential pitfalls and common mistakes, and reach correct conclusions for a broad range of finance problems.
Working knowledge of the Python programming language (particularly libraries such as pandas and NumPy) is necessary.
