Systematic trading is often considered a science in contrast with discretionary trading that is conceived as somewhat of an art.

Unfortunately it is often incorrectly associated with special domains of knowledge such as statistics, non-linear dynamics, data mining and others. Since many of these sciences require quite some work to get a good grasp of, traders tend to avoid systematic trading solutions.

Fortunately, reality is (as always) different from most popular prejudices and delusions about Systematic Trading. While some of the disciplines mentioned above are indeed essential to trade systematically, the good news is that the core notions and formulas can be explained in simple terms, while most of the really complex studies and models – are not required to succeed.

In this webinar you will learn the real facts about systematic trading and its advantages over discretionary methods.

You will also learn that the complexity of a model is not a guarantee of its profitability, and that only common sense and logic are required to trade systematically with success!

1L How many using R and any benefits from it? 2: Anyone using Splunk for big data that has become the search engine for IT?

1. Not using R (yet)
2. Love Splunk. It was very easy to set it up and get instant insight into what’s going on in the company.

R is fantastic, though I’m not using it daily (yet). I’ve been able to do basic segmentation, explore distributions, make basic graphs and do basic GIS analysis. I’ve done a logistic regression (1) – but this isn’t a tool i’m super familiar with, so haven’t played with it too much.

With instructors for some recent statistics graduate courses I took, it is the preferred analysis environment and rivals SAS, in amount of use. Most recently, I have used it for my own research in survival analysis.

CEP – very much a buzz term at the moment. We hear a lot about the benefits but what are the limitations?

I thought CEP was a buzz term five or six years ago and there were a lot of companies entering the market. Has something changed recently?

 

. From our perspective we’ve seeing lots recently about CEP in conjunction with trading technology and the ubiquitous ‘big data’. From a trade data standpoint the past few years has seen high frequency/low latency become the norm, with systems that execute hundreds of trades per micro-second. Our company tests these systems, and we’re exploring CEP as a means of providing real time analysis. Appreciate there are alternative technologies, would be interested in your thoughts here.

CEP is great at capturing high volume and high speed streams of events. It is then used for stream transformation, pattern matching, monitoring etc.
It is not great at handling large stores of historical data – that is better done in a database, ideally a column-based database. It will also not provide you with any kind of audit trail, which the database will provide. Many of the successful implementations that we have seen have implemented a two-tier (CEP and Dbase, sometimes in memory) or a three tier – CEP, in-memory DB and column-based VLDB. If you are involved in using this kind of technology in capital markets, you might want to read throughhttp://response.sybase.com/forms/CAPMKTS_Guides. It has a good collection of articles from analysts and customers as well as some product information.

——

My point is that CEP is a mainstream, including (and mostly) trading. AFAIU the term itself was introduced back in 2002. Here is a brief history of CEP:

nice overview of limitations – short time windows and lack of audit.
