"Benjamin Van Vliet and Andrew Kumiega give a complete and methodological approach to building trading and investment systems. They cover all you need to know to understand back-testing and prototyping of trading algorithms. Our team had their methodology in mind when they designed our analytical tool, Resolver One, to ensure quality, reliability and consistency when developing trading systems from ideas through prototype to production.

'If you look at these three groups, the tactics they employ for effective software testing are all completely different,' Kumiega said."--Institutional Investor
