Will 1.7 billion per year make this 20+ year equity trader come out of retirement to do quant and development?

This was part of blurb from a Meetup member:

My concern (as it relates to participating in your meetings) is that I am not any longer “in the industry” per se, nor have I ever been a quant professionally; thus, I am sure that the mutually beneficial comment above is likely very one-sided.. I defer to your judgement (and please do not hesitate to be brutally honest) as to whether or not I should aspire to come out in the future. I have been doing some self-learning re:quant techniques.. so if you think there is hope for my participation, any pointers of where I may focus would be appreciated. I would hate to slow the pace of conversation or be out of place, but I love to learn.


I am not sure what his question was but he said he was some equity trader of 20+ years experience. My response is if the video below does not inspire you to do quant, I don’t know what will.  it involves $1.7 billion personally made in a year.

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

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
