Creating an Algorithmic Trading System – WSO Downloads
Kevin Davey’s book, “Building Winning Algorithmic Trading Systems,” is a complete description of developing trading systems. He begins with some personal anecdotes, including his experience and success in the World Cup Championship of Futures Trading, all of which create a background, and establish both credibility and rapport. The majority of the book is devoted to a step by step discussion of trading system development techniques. He covers everything– goals, objectives, data, backtesting, optimization, validation, position sizing, and trading management. The topics are entirely and clearly explained. The advice is realistic and practical. I highly recommend this book.”

Great Eye Opener for Anyone Getting Into Automated Trading
“I typically don’t buy trading books anymore, having read 100+ already. Why? Because most are the same regurgitated thoughts, patterns, analysis, and strategies.
I recently met Kevin on LinkedIn. After swapping a few emails, I quickly realized that he understands how to build and trade systems.
His book is a quick and straightforward read even if you don’t know anything about systems or programming. If you want an authentic taste of what it’s like to build trading systems, you should read his book. ”
– Chris Vermeulen, Founder of AlgoTrades.net
“Kevin Davey has a unique understanding of systems and the markets I have only seen in a few people over the years. 90% of trading books written today are useless. This book impressed me. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in trading using a systematic approach. I put this book on my list of the top 50 most useful books on the trading of all time. ”
– Murray A. Ruggiero, Jr. – Chief Systems Designer at Tuttle Tactical Management, Contributing Editor of Futures Magazine, Author of “Cybernetic Trading Strategies” and “Using Easy Language 9.X.”
“This is a great book to get a much better understanding of what is involved in system development and help on your journey from someone with a lot of real-life trading experience. For those already working with systems, it may challenge some of the approaches you use and help you to become a better system developer and trader. From my perspective, the chance to look over Kevin’s shoulder and see the concepts and full code from some systems he has been using in his trading alone would be of far more value than the cost of the book.”
—Tim Rea, Proprietary systems developer/trader; 1st place winner, World Cup Championship of Futures Trading® 2011
“Part Reminiscences of a Stock Operator and part Market Wizards, Kevin Davey has written a superb book for the modern trader. Not only does Kevin provide a step-by-step plan on how to develop algorithmic trading strategies but he reveals the strategy he used to win The World Cup Championship Of Futures Trading® along with two new euro currency systems. I have no doubt this will become a popular and often referenced book amongst traders. Readers will find Kevin’s humble and engaging voice easy to follow and grasp. They will also find his journey from aerospace engineer to beginner trader, to a championship winning trader and finally to a full-time professional trader insightful, entertaining, and inspiring. Wiley should also be congratulated for recruiting a real trader who trades real markets with real money to write a trading book for people aspiring to become real traders. I highly recommend this book to anyone serious about developing a successful and sustainable trading career.”
—Brent Penfold, professional trader and author of The Universal Principles of Successful Trading (Wiley 2010)
“Few trading books on the market today are written by those who make their living from trading and those that are frequently suffering from being incomprehensible to the layman. Kevin Davey has the authenticity of a real trader and the ability to distill complex ideas into a format that is easy to read and, at times, brutally honest. For those aspiring to trade success, Kevin gives a step by step guide on how to approach systems development as well as outlining many of the pitfalls to avoid and throughout the book he provides a wealth of information and tools that will prove invaluable to novice or expert alike.”
—Michael Cook, Founder, Katmai Capital Advisors; World Cup Championship of Futures Trading® 2007
“Of all the trading books that I’ve read, this book takes the cake. Kevin Davey brings us a realistic perspective in an industry full of dreamers. I suggest that all traders drop what they’re doing and read the incredibly valuable lessons summed up in this book. This book is the quickest path for a new trader to stop dreaming and start succeeding.”
