Not long ago only banks and hedge funds could afford doing automated and High Frequency Trading, that is, the ability to send buy commodities in microseconds intervals. High Frequency needed both expensive hardware, communications, and algorithms: something small investors couldn’t afford. That’s not true anymore: Big Data has democratized investing. In this talk you’ll learn how to build your own High-Frequency-Trading platform using Kafka, Kafka Streams exactly-once-processing, and KSQL. We will target one of the most exciting markets today: bitcoin and cryptocurrency trading.
