  • Train a machine learning model to calculate a sentiment from a news headline
  • Implement and compare the word embeddings methods such as Bag of Words (BoW), TF-IDF, Word2Vec and BERT
  • Predict the stock returns and bond returns from the news headlines
  • Describe the applications of natural language processing
  • Automate and paper trade the strategies covered in the course
  • Fetch the recent news headline data
  • Implement strategies in the live markets and analyze the performance


Predictive Modelling 

  • Supervised Learning
  • XGBoost Model
  • Train and Test Datasets
  • Corporate Bonds returns
  • Stock Returns, Sharpe ratio
Word Embeddings 

  • Bag of Words
  • TF-IDF
  • Word2Vec
  • BERT

  • Numpy
  • Pandas
  • XGBoost
  • Matplotlib
  • CountVectorizer

Basic familiarity with machine learning concepts such as training, testing, features and target variables is required. Exposure to programming concepts is required to interpret the codes covered in the course. However, experience with Python coding knowledge is optional. If you want to be able to code and implement the strategies in Python, you should be able to work with ‘Pandas Data frames’. All the required skill sets are covered in the foundation courses available in the learning track.
