as per title i’ve finally started the python journey. My goal is backtest and trading.
What I dont know is if there are “different” type of pythons, because while browsing for tutorials i’m seeing a lot of different areas where python is used. (for example pythong for data analysts, or pythong for engineers etc)
So far i have started from the very beginning and am watching some youtube tutorials while also reading the documentation on this website.
I’ve learned about variables, loops, lists and other basic stuff, so far so good, but i’m wondering if the “normal” python is able to do trading related stuff?
by normal i mean, cause I see a lot of people talking about downloading stuff (like add-on libraries/extensions i think?) inorder to trade. does this mean the out of the box python is not capable of trading related actions? (by this i mean, does it miss the syntax/codes to place orders and stuff?)
sorry but im totally confused; while the tutorials i have watched so far are quite simple to understand, im fearing that i am entering a no-exit tunnel
