Goldman Plans Hiring Spree in Trading Where Only Coders Need Apply

You a dinosaur trader? You may want to read this about how the coders will now take over. It seems official with this article. Here is the highlight:

Goldman Sach’s trading division is planning its biggest hiring spree in years. The catch? The entire effort is focused on coders, a sign of where Wall Street is headed.

Why I switched from Kraken to Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange

Many will be surprised by this move from Kraken to Coinbase. Here are a few benefits and reasons:

  1. Coinbase volume is now nearly double Kraken as it has been dropping for months. This makes them the largest crypto exchange out of the USA
  2. Fewer crypto shows less choppiness than Kraken
  3. Less correlated coins to BTC
  4. They are trying to comply with the US regulators to kiss their butts which means over 50% of the my entire global base can be supported for crypto
  5. They are trying real hard to become the goto exchange for institutional capital.
  6. They will most likely become the place to transact with crypto as they are trying to become the default login for websites and apps.
  7. Just like Binance, they have way more development newsworthy stuff as compared to slow moving Kraken.

MIT-IBM AI Lab Analyzed Bitcoin Transactions. Only 2% Were Labeled ‘Illicit’

Do not forget about the last few slots for the Quant Elite membership. This means you get immediate 10+ years archive plus 3 another years on what I do in the future. See the many benefits here.

It amazes that the US government tried to make it sound like the majority of crypto currency/Bitcoin transaction are illicit. It amazes with this type of MIT study from MIT and IBM shows it could be as low as 2%. If that amount of transaction is in line with cash, maybe the USA government needs to ban their dollar as well.

The group’s study detailed how researchers at the MIT-IBM Watson AI Lab used machine learning software to analyze 203,769 bitcoin node transactions worth roughly $6 billion in total. The research explored whether artificial intelligence could assist current anti-money laundering (AML) procedures.
Only 2 percent of the 200,000 bitcoin transactions in the data set were deemed illicit as part of Eliptic’s initial work. While 21 percent were identified as lawful, the vast majority of the transactions, roughly 77 percent, remained unclassified. (To date, there have been an estimated 440 million bitcoin transactions since the network’s launch in 2009.)
To be clear, the 2 percent comes from an Elliptic data set that was previously not public and the figure was merely affirmed by the MIT researchers’ analysis. The data point is in line with a study from competing analytics firm Chainalysis, which estimated just 1 percent of bitcoin transactions in 2019 were known to be associated with illicit activity.

I’ve reproduced 130+ research papers about “predicting the stock market”

Do not forget about the last few slots for the Quant Elite membership. This means you get immediate 10+ years archive plus 3 another years on what I do in the future. See the many benefits here among research papers

An article appeared on Reddis called:

I’ve reproduced 130+ research papers about “predicting the stock market”, coded them from scratch and recorded the results. Here’s what I’ve learnt.

This article was removed but the results were simplicity rules. There a bunch of research papers that were built on hype while the real result was based on simplicity. The author also said that short term mean reverting instrument was most consistent. Then the negative comments were posted where the author was accused of some crypto scam. I will let you read the comments here

Does this conclusion of optimal strategy sound correct?

actuary vs quant

Do not forget about the last few slots for the Quant Elite membership. This means you get immediate 10+ years archive plus 3 another years on what I do in the future. See the many benefits here.

What is the difference between quant vs actuary? Below is a video of this but see the description:

A lot of people have been asking what is the difference between Quants and Actuaries. Some have tried claiming one is nested inside of the other curriculum however this is wrong. In simple terms, quants are very focused in derivatives, financial risk management, and statistical arbitrage with heavy focus on programming as well. They require a minimum of a Masters (1-2 yrs) but prefer a PhD (5-7 yrs). Actuaries specialize in the insurance, pension, and health care industry with a broad range of topics covered including statistics, probability, finance, economics, and financial mathematics. It is very hard to jump from one (quant or actuary) to the other. Actuaries require exams which prevent quants from entering their industry. Quants require a Masters or PhD and prefer specific majors over others which prevents actuaries from entering the quant realm. Yes, there are people who go from one to the other but it is not very common due to the barriers.

Quant is pure math.

DeepMind’s Loss and the Future of AI like deep reinforcement learning

Do not forget about the last few slots for the Quant Elite membership. This means you get immediate 10+ years archive plus 3 another years on what I do in the future. See the many benefits here as deep reinforcement learning.

Some may start doubting machine learning techniques like Deep Learning or Deep Reinforcement Learning. If you consider Google’s Deep Mind losing $572 million a year, many hope for the future of Artificial Intelligence will falter like this.

Here is the conclusion of this article:

https://www.wired.com/story/deepminds-losses-future-artificial-intelligence/amp

Ten years from now we will conclude that deep reinforcement learning was overrated in the late 2010s, and that many other important research avenues were neglected. Every dollar invested in reinforcement learning is a dollar not invested somewhere else, at a time when, for example, insights from the human cognitive sciences might yield valuable clues. Researchers in machine learning now often ask, “How can machines optimize complex problems using massive amounts of data?” We might also ask, “How do children acquire language and come to understand the world, using less power and data than current AI systems do?” If we spent more time, money, and energy on the latter question than the former, we might get to artificial general intelligence a lot sooner.

Could you link the relationship VIX futures with negative stock performance?

Thanks

Options traders bet on VIX futures volatility flooding the market

This article become popular on my Facebook which you should read. The VIX futures is a popular pick! The title was:

Options traders bet on even more volatility flooding the market

I saw that the VIX was building faster than gold and Bitcoin a few days ago. The markets may have settled down in the last few days, but you cannot ignore this is the next big instrument to move up. Here are some article highlights:

“What happens is, when you see a lot of volatility the VIX curve actually ends up in backwardation. Spot VIX will end up even higher [than the futures],” Khouw said. “So, a bet that that future rises above 30 is a bet that something pretty wild is going on in the marketplace.”

Will VIX futures climb above 30? It’s tough to predict. However, with a few more days of wild swings in the market, they could move higher very quickly. The more likely scenario is that this trader is looking for the VIX to climb into the mid-20s over the next week of trading so they can sell these contracts at a profit.

The VIX was down Thursday, while VIX futures were slightly higher.

Do you trade futures? Is this one instrument you would be interested in trading ?

Thanks Bryan
