Experienced in python but not in finance

Hello, I’m a student currently studying statistics, and I’ve been applying python to do data science projects of my own. Using pandas numpy and various libraries is second nature for me at this point, as well as python programming itself. Im a computer science minor so the coding aspect isn’t so much of an issue for me. However As a beginner whose looking into quantopian, I’m understanding how the actual code works, but can’t really piece together how to develop an actual algorithm as I don’t have any prior finance knowledge. I have done quantopian tutorials, but without any solid finance knowledge I feel kinda stuck as to what I can do. Does anyone know if I should look into financial concepts? Is this a waste of time or will this help? Anyone with coding knowledge but no finance bsckground have success in creating their own algos in quantopian or quantconnect etc?
