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%.

After Monday, there will be another price increase as in doubling the rate come Tues It could go up from there if the this strategy works out in the long run. More details to follow in a few days on that.

As you know, time starts ticking. Tick tock. This deal will vanish permanently!

Inside the NYC offices of $45 billion HFT Two Sigma

Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in a High Frequency Trading shop? Here is a neat Business Insider articles explaining some of the features of what it is like to work at this firm. Don’t forget they work at a $42 billion hedge fund. Go here for that article

Check out this article
The interesting first photo was of a Python Meetup hosted at the Two Sigma offices. Does this mean they use Python? It is quite common to see in an HFT environment. In fact, there are more Python used for machine learning than R.

 

Speaking of Python , if you are new to all this, I have a course to introduce you to all the primitive trading components.

 

See the highlights below.

 

If you want, I have a sample video you could preview here

Course details from the link above:

Module 1: Popular Programming for Algos and Automated Trading

Remember this course series will focus primarily on Python after all languages described below. I will post the advantages of it in a separate module so please just use the following for comparison reasons only.

Module 2:  Why Python for my algos and automated trading

HFT Firms like Jump, Citadel, Two Sigma, etc use Python as their standard high level language before moving into C++. If you are new to all this programming thing, just focus on the intro resources I list below.

I am also planning to implement with Python 100% due to:

  • Condensed Coding and Simple
  • Mature community for extended trading strategy ideas
  • Open source which means it’s free unlike my love of commercial MATLAB

Module 3: Setting up your Python environment BB

The wonky thing about Python is setting up your environment. It depends on your chosen operating system to deploy Python.  I found Python works great when you are on a Linux friendly environment like Ubuntu Distribution or even my preferred option like Apple MAC OS X.

Module 4: Brand spanking new to programming via Python learning:

I struggled with Python on Windows. I recommend to install Python on a Linux Virtual Machine via VMWare Workstation or free Virtual Box.  Ubuntu or Mint Linux distribution is preferred for testing/development only.

Module 5:   Intro overview of MongoDB open source NOSQL database

At first, I was a never a huge fan of this database option but after my fiascoes with both MYSQL and PostgreSQL on my Mac OS X environment, I quickly realized there had to be an easier way. Once setup properly, you will find MongoDB is really light but yet has the all the required database features you would expect. This includes:

  • Fairly fast and Open source meaning it is free
  • Highly popular and most popular NOSQL database out there
  • Has enterprise level features like clustering and redundancy

Module 6: Intro to Redis for highest performance in your algo trading

Redis is another NOSQL database but primarily used for in-memory only vs MongoDB which is used for persistence which is disk based. Redis is considered one of the fastest databases on the planet so if implemented right, you could use this for HFT performance potentially.

  • Fastest possible and Open source meaning it is free
  • Highly popular and most popular NOSQL database out there
  • Has enterprise level features like clustering and redundancy

Module 7: Interfacing with Interactive Brokers TWS with Python and other demos

I have so many demos of using Interactive Brokers with Trader Workstation (TWS). First, let’s focus on interfacing with Python

Module 8: Market Data Source with Yahoo Finance

In Python, there are numerous packages you could use to access Yahoo Finance which is FREE. There is one demo in this preview but do understand that this will be used throughout my Arbitrage/Pair Trading phase in the next course of this Python Algo Trading Course Series

Module 9: Pretty trading charts with Matplotlib and PyQtChart

As this is the Infrastructure Building Block phase, our first phase on Arbitrage Pair Trading will have many demos available with source code. Let’s just focus on the capabilities of these cool Python charting packages
