The casualties are piling up

It’s just about the term you look at it. I would wait a couple of years. I assume he is betting for the downturn and stocks have kept going up due the FED

sort of like soros

This isn’t their medallion fund that is only open to current and former employees and has been making the crazy returns for years.
The funds of theirs that are open to outside investors are not as strong,

20% of their total AUM?????

Bitcoin outperformed him by a large margin

Did the Chinese PHD went back to China ?

Most POWERFUL high frequency trading aka HFT like metric for a crypto trading bot

This is the ABSOLUTE most critical metric out there when trading crypto. If your exchange does not offer this, move to another that does. Can you rely on any exchange thats offers this? Also, most this 3rd party bot service or platform most likely will NOT offer this metric to you. So be forewarned about this. If you don’t get it, you could get crush and lose money.

Learning from Jim Simons the Man who Solved to Consistently Predict the Market

Here are some highlight from this book released a few months ago. Note the comment on physics models which ‘consistently predict accurately over and over again’

So it was interesting that a little more than a decade later, I would see Jim Simons and RenTech popping up in my Twitter feed, with Medallion, their flagship fund’s record on display in the tweet, with a brilliant 66% year-on-year compounded annual return before fees (39% after fees)…
he hedged the fund with oil put options before the first Gulf War in the 90s….

The key here is consistency and reproducibility. Models in physics consistently predict accurately over and over again, and their results can be reproduced. In contrast, models in trading, and typically those that deal with human behavior, are not going to be as consistent. …

Binance’s Order Book Delays a Crypto Trading Bot Headache?

I tested the websocket Python scripts over night. It ran for about 4 hours with occasional captures every 10 seconds. This is also using Binance Futures. It then came back with this crypto trading bot exception:

binance-futures – WARNING – In delay connection

I could not find any details on this message. There was also this article I found.
