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.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!
