Born in Valencia (Spain), with more than 10 years of experience in financial markets, he collaborated in the development of quantitative systems for the investment fund Novacap. He is now a member of Quantifiedmodels and a Trader Trainer with StrategyQuant X software with over 5 years of experience in the program.
For some years I have been trading algorithmically, but I wanted to have a broader vision by dabbling in quantitative trading through Strategy Quant X (SQX), but SQX is a complex software, not in vain is it used by the big leagues of professional trading , I tried it a few times, but it was not easy for me to understand its operation.
I found the “StrategyQuant X” Course on the internet, offered in Spanish, my native language. I decided to take the risk and I bought it in December 2020. It consists of 46 videos with very good resolution and excellent sound, the duration of which ranges from 5 to 20 minutes each.
But the most important thing is its content, although it is not a course for beginners, it does describe the use of Strategy Quant X in a simple and methodical way, I am happy with the course, the money was not wasted and I think Ángel Talavera made a very good work, that’s why I agreed to make this written comment. On the other hand, I searched the internet for the most comfortable way to buy SQX, since it is expensive software, discovering with surprise that the biggest real discount (20%) is achieved with the link that is supplied with the course, one more point to favor.
And finally, I had to change my PC since SQX is a powerful software that consumes a lot of resources, and before buying it I wrote an email to Ángel asking for advice, his response was immediate and he helped me a lot in the selection of my new computer. , another plus point.
Very complete course aimed at all levels, from basic to advanced. It explains in an entertaining way, but at the same time exhaustively, each parameter of the software.
I thought I knew the software until I stumbled upon this course and it showed me that there are many options and menus hidden in plain sight. Angel very attentive to any questions that may have arisen.
In summary: value for money 10 out of 10 Thank you, Angel!
I think the software is exceptional and your course helped me a lot to understand it. I am very attentive to your instructions. I really hope to be able to get the most out of the software and the knowledge acquired in the course.
I am really enjoying the course and I am learning a lot. I have not reached the hard part yet, but I am very excited.
