Growth of Algorithmic Trading
Algorithmic trading is an important and growing trend in financial markets with over 90% of foreign exchange trading volume now executed by algorithms. Industry reports suggest the market size of global algorithmic trading is expected to rise from $11bn in 2019 to $18.8bn in 2024, expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 11.1%. In a technology age, we believe that having basic coding skills has increasingly become essential to remain competitive in financial markets.
