The Incredible Shrinking Hedge Fund

These charts will convince you that the hedge fund industry is definitely shrinking. I would even think the though of starting one is even dead. Here are some highlights you should check out:

With inflows stagnant, the number of new firms has plummeted.

Overall, firms’ assets are barely growing. Net inflows since the end of 2016 have equaled just $7.8 billion.

Then you should see the how the legends have shrunk.

Ken Griffin’s $30B hedge fund has out performance vs industry this year

If you looked at these crummy returns, you would think this performance from the big dogs of the hedge fund industry is sort of sad. I am not an expert here but I am hoping to get my trading daily goals will be at least 0.5% psotive moves against my portfolio. However, when you have the most intelligent industry managers with such low performance, it make me wonder who are they to attack the crypto currency asset class space? I do see daily tiny opportunities to make the goals I would like to achieve. See this CNBC article here:

Corrections help

Someone in my Telegram group corrected my views on both on Markowitz and Sortino. I like this type of criticism since it improves my view of algo trading. Also, you need to keep an open mind to this as well. If you want to see these corrections, go here:

https://www.quora.com/Who-is-the-smartest-hedge-fund-manager-ever

Who do you think it should be? Let me know by responding!

What am I gong to do about it?

As for me, I am making some great strides in this overall strategy:

1. I included a video on how I am able triple expected returns via portfolio optimization.

2. I am working on how to optimally enter and exit the crypto currency exchanges for multiple positions.

3. Use risk management techniques to help protect your account against down market days. Imagine if you were able to do the opposite by maximizing when the markets are constantly up?

Many videos and other files will be provided very soon which will be part of my Quant Analytics service. You may to consider joining right as soon as possible.

Introducing the my big ass report for algo crypto currency trading: head and shoulders coming soon

I have added some new features into this new mega report. It is really built from the same report I have shown on my Youtube channel over the last few weeks. I plan to include both head and header and inverted head and shoulder charting as well.

Here are some new additions:

  1. I have included new candlestick chart for the last 30, 90, and 180 days
  2. Candlestick detections with bullish and bearish views (for last 30 days) for market reversal
  3. Harmonic patterns with bullish or bearish views
  4. Trend and latest Fibonacci retracement levels (over x lookback) for the period’s minimum and maximum

Everything else is the same but I have decided to include everything into the same report to condense it with all the latest features. I plan to add the head and shoulder with inverted head and shoulder charts.

This will be part of our Analytics service

315 crypto currency pair analysis with strong buy signal June 6 2018

 

More analysis based off my new way to rank crypto currency trading opportunity. This batch reveals 2 buy signals with combined with completed harmonic patterns and moving average cross. When  you look at the other factors including volatility or volume, these might be optimal pairs to buy. As you watch, there are other pairs that be better  with higher volume. How does allocate their capital to to deploy for trading for the day? I have a solution for that. which is automated. What you watch in this video can be fully automated? I am just trying to demonstrate these capabilities as a human.

Improvements needed

Considering the cryptocurrency market is bearish, I must admit some of the pairs do show combos that you will not hear about unless you scan for them. Also, it is important to note that these pairs are for  longing only. I will add shorting capabilities with both long and short signals. I also need to add a description of which harmonic patterns are being formed from recent price action.

Airbnb internal hedge fund that makes $5M per month?

Airbnb internal hedge fund that makes $5M per month?

So an internal hedge fund recuses the cash flow of this startup barely making any profit. Here are some article highlights:

The side project represented 30 percent of the company’s cash flow last year and made about $5 million a month for Airbnb,…

Airbnb’s earnings before interest, taxes, and other expenses came to $93 million, more than double the company’s …

 Bloomberg’s sources are correct, then as much as $60 million of that may have come from Tosi’s hedge fund. Investing a company’s cash isn’t unusual.

As for my strategy and recent videos I have posted on technical indicators, I am thinking of scrapping it to work on a new more efficient one for better tracking potential forex opportunities. Keeps your eyes peeled on this.

Does MIFID II prevent small hedge fund taking external capital

Here was a user comment on this video
Very interesting legal development. One guy from a European bank’s ER said that the ER departments in many institutions are going to shut down, because they don’t expect the clients will pay for their sell-side research. We are witnessing a huge reshape of the current S&T business model at sell-side financial firms.
Thanks for reading

Heavy industry HFT hedge fund players at Newsweek AI Data Science Conference in NYC

It seems that yesterday started out in a whirlwind. At 10 AM EDT, an official Tweet went out on Newsweek’s official Twitter account of 3.3 million followers announcing their upcoming event in New York starting Dec 5-7. It is quite the event entitled “Newsweek Artificial Intelligence and Data Science in the Capital Markets.” It has a variety of big names from asset management companies ranging from Sigma Two to Blackrock to Goldman Sachs. Holy! You really need to be there if you want to learn about the latest in this field. I put together a 15 minute video to detail what will be included over the 3 days.

Whoa! There are so many industry institutional players at this conference !! Regiser here: http://www.aidataconf.com/
Did I mention that we are one of the sponsoring media partners for this huge event??

 

Well, being recongnized for that, I guess set a pre-sale deadline of this THURSAY (as in 2 days!) before the official Black Friday/Cyber Money hits this weekend!! That mean you can expect a 50% increase come this Friday Nov 24

!! 

Here are the deets (as this kids say these days)

 

As I mentioned we are moving into Black Friday/Cyber Monday event. Basically, this deal includes all

3 of my courses here which covers Python Infrastructure, Futures and Options, and Interactive Broker API

 

12 month subscription to Quant Analytics

 

This combo totals well into the thousands. After next week, I plan to raise this current ‘special’ price over 50%.

 

See the details here;

After Monday, there will be another price increase as in doubling the rate come Tues It could go up from there if the this strategy works out in the long run. More details to follow in a few days on that.

As you know, time starts ticking. Tick tock. This deal will vanish permanently!
