5 Lessons From the Greatest Traders Jim Simons book

Since the announcement of a book about the Renaissance Technology founder, It is a week about Jim Simons. The thing is that he is easily the most successful trader or investor of our time. Someone went out and wrote about some of the lessons learned  from this book.

Out of all the articles I have seen over the last few weeks, this is easily the most useful.

If you have not been reading these emails, I have done revamped the store to my old reactivated Shopify store. I am sure you are not interested in the benefits, so I will just post the the highlighted links:

Goldman Sachs lose top traders to hedge funds

I have put together some articles on what is happening with Goldman Sachs as more people are leaving. Here are some reasons from the first article:

Junior traders have been complaining of a new approach at Goldman Sachs. As the firm focuses on developing stable streams of income from ‘platform’ businesses, volatile trading revenues have gone out of fashion. Insiders complain there’s less interest in generating alpha and more of a focus on pure market making, meaning alpha-generating traders feel they’re better off on the buy-side.

Many seem to be going to Bluecrest but never ask me why. Here are the other articles leading into Goldman is moving into platform based businesses which make sense:

I am still looking for feedback from people on this new physical book I am thinking of self publishing. As said, a darft is in place but I am not willing to move forward unless people comment on what more they would like to see in it. This book proposes to speak about 4 main topics:

  1. Your retirement and future taxes
  2. How to hire a coder
  3. Rise of Bitcoin and crypto currency

It generally will speak of why the benefits of algo trading can help secure your unclear future.

As said, let me know by commenting or responding about this. I will simply quash the idea if I just see clicks and social media likes.

Thanks Bryan

NVIDIA Shows 6,000x Speedup on Key Algo for Hedge Funds

 

So Nvidia showcased a hedge fund algo that was sped up 6000x. Can you imagine? After my chat with a ‘guru god’ on my private chat server, it seems using mid range GPU cards could be enough? It might not cost that much. In this conversation, many tips were offer around optimizing simulations and training a model. Once Facebook regarding this Nvidia performance included:

I was lucky enough to be at an innovation lab that had 16 DGX’s. We trained a CNN in 40 minutes with a better performance against the benchmark that took days to get to the same result. It was a thing of beauty.

Tech Hedge Fund Beats Nasdaq and reminder about forex vs cryptocurrency bot results webinar

Remember about the forex vs cryptocurrency bot results webinar tomorrow as well which is listed below. From this article:

Since its July 2010 inception, the firm’s long-short strategy has topped the Nasdaq’s 17.5% net annualized return with one of 19.1%. Its $1.5 billion Light Street Mercury Master fund hasn’t outpaced the benchmark so far, returning 16% after fees through April 30, versus 22% for the Nasdaq at that point. But the year isn’t over.

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.
