Airbnb internal hedge fund that makes $5M per month?

Airbnb internal hedge fund that makes $5M per month?

So an internal hedge fund recuses the cash flow of this startup barely making any profit. Here are some article highlights:

The side project represented 30 percent of the company’s cash flow last year and made about $5 million a month for Airbnb,…

Airbnb’s earnings before interest, taxes, and other expenses came to $93 million, more than double the company’s …

 Bloomberg’s sources are correct, then as much as $60 million of that may have come from Tosi’s hedge fund. Investing a company’s cash isn’t unusual.

As for my strategy and recent videos I have posted on technical indicators, I am thinking of scrapping it to work on a new more efficient one for better tracking potential forex opportunities. Keeps your eyes peeled on this.

Thanks Bryan

RenTech HFT Hedge Fund Sees ‘Significant’ Risk of Correction

RenTech HFT Hedge Fund Sees ‘Significant’ Risk of Correction

Here is some quotes on this forecast:

“However, with higher rates and more volatility a distinct possibility, there is a significant risk that asset prices will correct,” he said.

“While the fear of missing out may not be a concern for equity investors, increasing euphoria mixed with a bit of complacency certainly is,” he said. “Historically low levels of volatility may well have given investors a false sense of security in the nearly two years since the last market correction.”

“Who is going to buy the paper the Federal Reserve accumulated during the years of quantitative easing? If the Chinese reassess their appetite for U.S. debt, rates will have to move up to finance the projected $700 billion U.S. deficit this year,” he said.

“While we cannot know when that will happen with the current markets, we are doing our best to prepare for what may be turbulence ahead,” he wrote.

Does MIFID II prevent small hedge fund taking external capital

Here was a user comment on this video
Very interesting legal development. One guy from a European bank’s ER said that the ER departments in many institutions are going to shut down, because they don’t expect the clients will pay for their sell-side research. We are witnessing a huge reshape of the current S&T business model at sell-side financial firms.
Thanks for reading

Up potential:

2% of $30M is $600k, thats needed nowadays, office, staff of four and accountants, lawyers, auditors, custodian

internet firewall, humidity, fake software/hardware, corrupt cables, landlord access to server

and guarantee products, investors are used to the downside protection

in china you have to guarantee no losses

easier to sue thanks to MIFID

100B fund or large trading desk of some major oil corporation

fixed operation expense annually could be $1m with legal

small investor <1M not worth since they can sue easier for loss, some get together for potential class action and more frequent

Heavy industry HFT hedge fund players at Newsweek AI Data Science Conference in NYC

It seems that yesterday started out in a whirlwind. At 10 AM EDT, an official Tweet went out on Newsweek’s official Twitter account of 3.3 million followers announcing their upcoming event in New York starting Dec 5-7. It is quite the event entitled “Newsweek Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in the Capital Markets.” It has a variety of big names from asset management companies ranging from Sigma Two to Blackrock to Goldman Sachs. Holy! You really need to be there if you want to learn about the latest in this field. I put together a 15 minute video to detail what will be included over the 3 days.

Whoa! There are so many industry institutional players at this conference !! Regiser here: http://www.aidataconf.com/
Did I mention that we are one of the sponsoring media partners for this huge event??

 

Well, being recongnized for that, I guess set a pre-sale deadline of this THURSAY (as in 2 days!) before the official Black Friday/Cyber Money hits this weekend!! That mean you can expect a 50% increase come this Friday Nov 24

!! 

Here are the deets (as this kids say these days)

 

As I mentioned we are moving into Black Friday/Cyber Monday event. Basically, this deal includes all

3 of my courses here which covers Python Infrastructure, Futures and Options, and Interactive Broker API

 

12 month subscription to Quant Analytics

 

This combo totals well into the thousands. After next week, I plan to raise this current ‘special’ price over 50%.

 

See the details here;

Should alt quant based hedge fund be part of Fintech ?

Should alt quant based hedge fund be part of Fintech ?

What is Fintech? I mean seriously. It is so general and vague which can include anything. From the articles and images I included below, one would think payment processors to alternative lenders. It also include crypto currency like Bitcoin. Could you not include starts up like Quantopian which are crowd funded hedge funds? Look at how Steve Cohen may have squandered his investment of $250M.
