Meetup quant finance next event is Pairs Trading in R on Jan 17, LAST CALL!!

I just sent this to my group:

Hey all

It looks like the group is growing crazy with lots of non-Ontario members. So welcome to all.

Our next Meetup is firm for this Tues Jan 17 at the North York Civic Library in Toronto. This starts at 7pm not the usual 6:30.

Please confirm as this will be yet another ‘our biggest’ Meetup yet. Topic is: Pairs Trading In R.

Thanks to Member Alon for piecing this together. These presentations can take a lot to put together so give this person a standing ovation for doing it. It takes a lot for members to step up to do a presentation. If you want, please let me know if you want to do something!  So please speak up!

I have a variety of topics to bang out for the group including my new course on how to build a High Frequency Trading Platform and how to use QuantLib with Excel, C#, Java, etc. I am also wanting to bring in the 15 year old whiz kid who got a lot of attention in Canada’s Dragon Den (or aka Shark Tank in the USA).

I am also looking at some webinar technology to help drive online presentations for non Toronto members as I am convinced there is a big need for these types of topics.

As for me here at, I have two latest posting summaries that you may interested in:

I hopefully will see you on Tues.

This is a reminder of the usual $3-$5 donation to cover the room. Also, we are totally responsible for setting up and tearing down the chairs. Also, we will go over to Milestones for a more social setting.

Thanks Bryan

P.S. Got ideas, feedback, or comments, let me know!


NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
