What background does a Wall Street investment bank software architect need to understand the power of quant and HFT development

This just came in via my FREE newsletter. Learn more about it here.

Anyhow, this person had questions:

 

Hi – I’m an architect with an investment bank at wall street. I want to start on quants and I want to sign up. Before that I sign up want to know more about your membership. Can anyone with basic knowledge work with the material in the site?

 

I am unsure of your background. This stuff is not a trading system out of a box. If you have decent software development skills, you should be able to understand this stuff. I am unsure of your tool preferences if you don’t mind .NET, Matlab, and R, then these are tools I use. Do you have a decent math ground? This is quant as it ain’t easy no matter who you talk to or get sold by. Let me know more about your background and I can be more precise.

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
