I wrote this application to learn more about how trading can be automated by doing simple technical analysis on charts. I stuck my nose into trading and technical analysis in 2017. I started to read book as trading in general and specialized myself on the analysis part. As I am a professional programmer doing Python programming for about 10 years it was natural to me to write such a program.


This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.
