In this post, we’re going to create a simple mean reversion strategy that you’ll be able to build on to develop your own profitable trading strategies.

Hello, my name is Leo Smigel, and I use data science to determine what works in investing and trading. You can read more about me and my journey at Analyzing Alpha. My goal is to be the resource I wish I had when learning how to make money in the markets.
I remember the daunting feeling of venturing into the world of algorithmic trading and backtesting. So don’t worry, I’m going to provide step-by-step guidance so you can follow along.
With introductions out of the way, let’s dig into the what and then the how.
Intrinio is pleased to announce the addition of US and International ETF data feeds to our financial data platform. Users can now access a variety of analytics, statistics, holdings, and metadata for the United States as well as International markets.
API stands for application programming interface and if that sounds like gibberish, you are already being left in the dust by the competition. APIs allow developers to build connections between their own applications and other applications, enabling data sources to interact. In the past, businesses that wanted their software systems to interact had to purchase expensive ERP software and implement cumbersome, time consuming solutions.
APIs make it easy and cheap for business tools to “talk” to each other, powering data driven decision making in real time. Businesses that use APIs will thrive, and those that don’t will be too slow to keep up.
If you’re a developer using Intrinio’s API, you will have noticed that for many data types, the results are limited to a specific number per page. This article answers these questions about API paging limits:
Intrinio is excited to announce the release of API Explorer, a free tool that makes it easier to check out the data types available in Intrinio’s Financial Data Marketplace. The API Explorer lets users select the data they would like to see and the companies they would like to see it for, and then outputs that data as well as the Excel, CSV, and API syntax that would be needed to access that data using other tools. This article explains what the API explorer is, how to use it, and why we created it.
Intrinio is pleased to provide an end-of-day options prices API via the Trade Alert US Option Prices Data Feed. Using our intuitive API, you are able to look up options contracts for any US security, then see current pricing for those contracts.
We also offer historical options pricing via bulk downloads, for a 3 year, 6 year, or 9 year period.
Our mission at Intrinio is to power a generation of applications that will fundamentally change the way our broken financial system works. Intrinio data feeds form the basis of large enterprise business reporting applications, fintech web apps, mobile apps, and even blogs. It’s rewarding to see our product come to life at the hands of today’s most innovative developers. They are building powerful things.
We’re lucky to be in a business where we grow together with our customers, and we’re proud to show off their hard work. Each blog in this series will feature a developer or a startup that has leveraged our financial data feeds to build something incredible.
