This came in from a newsletter email subscriber:

 

FYI -(join the dots) Further to your assertion “This article hints at how they have a secretive cloud Service for government agencies” is the mechanism for the US Congress plans to regulate crypto currencies.

How does RenTech HFT firm keep its secret secretly?

How does RenTech HFT firm keep its secret?

My latest video got some interesting comments regarding how Renaissance Technologies (RenTechP) keep all their secrets in place.
I did a little digging and revealed the following:

The power of algorithms and high-frequency trading in the world of Quant is so powerful it leaves any human trader behind. It is no 
longer valid to trade like a luddite. You either get  crushed by competing computerized algorithms or you will not be able to optimize 
Maximum pay off. Either way as a human trader, why waste your time? I don't have that kind of patience. Nor do I want to trade 
blindingly by just sheer guessing or listening to cousin Johnny.

Again as always, this is why I've built my Quant Elite membership for those that are new in joining this world. Personally I want all 
people to be able to achieve full advantage but still use simple programming and mathematical techniques for their optimal trading
potential. Not only that, I have created the most technically advanced membership of its kind as compared to  anything else online. 
Did you know I give you a very affordable rate annually but still give an extra two years?

Have a good one eh?  Take off EH?

Goldman Sachs SECRETLY seeks quant developers to rebuild their prop trading desk as HFT

Goldman Sachs SECRETLY seeks quant developers to rebuild their prop trading desk as HFT

Some History:
Earlier this week CNBC reported that Goldman is seeking to spin off the unit, possibly by the end of the week, letting it run as a separate hedge fund.
The move is designed to help Goldman comply with the Volcker Rule that will prevent banks investing more than three per cent of regulatory capital in hedge funds or private-equity funds.
However, CNBC says the bank will not give the spun off unit the rights to Slang, the special computer language developed for internal use and vital for its high-frequency trading operations.

So here we sit:
Goldman Sachs’ plan to spin off its proprietary trading business has run into an unexpected technology glitch that has sent the Wall Street firm scrambling to hire computer programers and project managers.

As reported earlier Thursday by CNBC, Goldman [ GS 149.25 +0.00 (+0.00%) ] could spin off part of its prop trading operations into an independent hedge fund as soon as Friday. The move is an attempt to comply with new rules limiting Wall Street firms from betting their own money in financial markets.

The problem is that Goldman’s traders use a special computer language called “Slang” that was developed for internal use only. That language plays a vital role in Goldman’s prop trading, including it’s computer driven high-frequency trading.

Goldman has decided the new spin-off won’t get the rights to Slang, according to a person familiar with the matter.

As a result, Goldman is rushing to translate its trading programs into a more standard computer code usable by the new spin-off trading company.

Recruiters around New York have been contacted to bring on new tech talent to rebuild Goldman’s trading operations. The recruitment drive is cloaked in secrecy, however.

At initial stages, potential recruits are not even told that Goldman is the client.

Goldman’s spokesman could not be reached for comment.
