About the Stock Trading part of the course.

I have not yet purchased so I hope you don't mind this Q? (BTW I have purchased an ML course of yours and it was very good.)

My understanding of stock trading is buy/sell many times in a short period (minutes) with the object of making more small gains than losses.
So this form of trading would entail the model being fed continuous real-time data and making short term predictions which are say picked up by Python code which executes trades.

Or are you referring to predicting stock prices for the next morning, week etc?

Thanks for your inquiry!

It's a very toy example, for the purpose of this course which is not at all focused on finance.

The example works with daily price and volume data. It does not predict prices.

In fact, I have another example in the course (RNN section) which explains why trying to predict prices based on historical data is not a good idea at all.
