How to cite?

When writing professional papers, we quote the resources we use and leverage them for our thoughts. Resources are given for copyright law, ethics, back-testing of ideas, to show the ability to work with literature and to place our work in a wider context. And last but not least, to avoid plagiarism.

The bibliographic citation (references) should serve to clearly identify the cited document. The data should, as far as possible, be comprehensively taken from the information source quoted.
