So what is so bad about optimizing a trading strategy or financial model?

HI there

So what is the controversy on this Matlab Optimization toolbox? Is Optimization really that bad? I see SOME useful examples of this.
I think it is early days for me to give a definitive.

Here are the topics I made available for my QuantLabs.net Premium Membership

Running the Matlab Optimization tool and Minimizing at the Command Line
Linear Programming
Call a nonlinear minimization routine with a xstart
Call a nonlinear minimization routine with a starting point xstart

I even gave my opinions here:

and

So what do you say? Let me know.

Thanks Bryan

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. 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 youtube.com/quantlabs
