⚠️ Important Note

I am not qualified to offer investment, legal, or any other advice, nor am I trying to do so. This is a programming tutorial aimed at teaching you how to build a trading bot for learning purposes. Any decisions, investments, or risks you take as a result of building a trading bot are your responsibility.

I cannot be held responsible for any decisions you make as a result of reading this tutorial. Remember: Bots can lose a lot of money, so you should be careful.

Quite regularly, we all come across some variation of this article: “10 Projects You Should Build as a Programmer”.

And most times that list includes a Trading Bot.

So, since I think trading bots are great projects, I thought I’d take some time to teach you how to build one.

However, rather than giving you all the code line by line, I decided it would be best to go through all the concepts you should be familiar with to take on this project.
