This is the article to describe the core ideas of the ETNA Robot platform and make it’s existing and upcoming users familiar with the application. We consider Level I market data (quotes) as primary events for strategies. But these streams are rather huge and fluctuating, so strategies, which are designed to analyze relatively long-term trends and regularities, are usually based on cumulative data sources like time bars, which aggregate prices and volumes for a specific time frame.

In a series of articles starting here, I’d like to cover some topics which are not wildly covered in marketing papers.
