Goldman Sachs Morgan Stanley Ask to Cancel Trades After Billion Flash Crash

Are Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley this evil? They are part of industry who potentially stuff quotes and then cancel after manipulating a price. Now, they may have lost thanks the the Singapore Exchange. This article said:

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Morgan Stanley asked some counterparties to cancel or amend trades in Jardine Matheson Holdings Ltd., after a $41 billion flash crash on Thursday saw shares change hands far below the market level, according to people familiar with the matter.

To this:

Singapore Exchange Ltd. decided not to cancel the trades. Sellers had “ample time” to withdraw their orders if they didn’t want to offload shares at the low price, SGX said after reviewing the incident. The exchange attributed the decline to sell orders that overwhelmed bids during the pre-open, for which neither a fat finger nor a malfunctioning computer system were responsible.

If it was a Western big exchange regulator, it most likely would have be accepted and gone unnoticed.

A couple of BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

The Quant Analytics will start getting signals for the following financial assets:

1. Crypto from Binance

2. Forex from Oanda

3. CFD from Oanda

This ‘bot’ will send out the latest signals batch every 6 hours so your email will get about 18 hours per trading day. This will be a lot more manageable that the Minute by Minute crypto trading strategy. This price will be much more affordable but it is currently $97 per month. Join to the the lowest price before I increase it by anywhere from $25 to $100 per month.

We are also coming up to the last 2 weeks of the LIVE Python V3 Building Blocks Infrastructure COURSE. Expect the current price to double from $250 or even triple in coming weeks. Get on that before the price increases.

If you browse my blog by searching for ‘2 Sigma’ or ‘Two Sigma’, you may find some secretive sauce on how they succeed. I am not trying to drop hints here or anything. Of course, that is up to you.

Inside the NYC offices of $45 billion HFT Two Sigma

Inside the NYC offices of $45 billion HFT Two Sigma

Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in a High Frequency Trading shop? Here is a neat Business Insider articles explaining some of the features of what it is like to work at this firm. Don’t forget they work at a $42 billion hedge fund. Go here for that article

Check out this article
The interesting first photo was of a Python Meetup hosted at the Two Sigma offices. Does this mean they use Python? It is quite common to see in an HFT environment. In fact, there are more Python used for machine learning than R.

 

Speaking of Python , if you are new to all this, I have a course to introduce you to all the primitive trading components.

 

See the highlights below.

 

If you want, I have a sample video you could preview here

Just to remind you that this is a sale HALF PRICE currently.

Course details from the link above:

Module 1: Popular Programming for Algos and Automated Trading

Remember this course series will focus primarily on Python after all languages described below. I will post the advantages of it in a separate module so please just use the following for comparison reasons only.

Module 2:  Why Python for my algos and automated trading

HFT Firms like Jump, Citadel, Two Sigma, etc use Python as their standard high level language before moving into C++. If you are new to all this programming thing, just focus on the intro resources I list below.

I am also planning to implement with Python 100% due to:

  • Condensed Coding and Simple
  • Mature community for extended trading strategy ideas
  • Open source which means it’s free unlike my love of commercial MATLAB

Module 3: Setting up your Python environment BB

The wonky thing about Python is setting up your environment. It depends on your chosen operating system to deploy Python.  I found Python works great when you are on a Linux friendly environment like Ubuntu Distribution or even my preferred option like Apple MAC OS X.

Module 4: Brand spanking new to programming via Python learning:

I struggled with Python on Windows. I recommend to install Python on a Linux Virtual Machine via VMWare Workstation or free Virtual Box.  Ubuntu or Mint Linux distribution is preferred for testing/development only.

Module 5:   Intro overview of MongoDB open source NOSQL database

At first, I was a never a huge fan of this database option but after my fiascoes with both MYSQL and PostgreSQL on my Mac OS X environment, I quickly realized there had to be an easier way. Once setup properly, you will find MongoDB is really light but yet has the all the required database features you would expect. This includes:

  • Fairly fast and Open source meaning it is free
  • Highly popular and most popular NOSQL database out there
  • Has enterprise level features like clustering and redundancy

Module 6: Intro to Redis for highest performance in your algo trading

Redis is another NOSQL database but primarily used for in-memory only vs MongoDB which is used for persistence which is disk based. Redis is considered one of the fastest databases on the planet so if implemented right, you could use this for HFT performance potentially.

  • Fastest possible and Open source meaning it is free
  • Highly popular and most popular NOSQL database out there
  • Has enterprise level features like clustering and redundancy

Module 7: Interfacing with Interactive Brokers TWS with Python and other demos

I have so many demos of using Interactive Brokers with Trader Workstation (TWS). First, let’s focus on interfacing with Python

Module 8: Market Data Source with Yahoo Finance

In Python, there are numerous packages you could use to access Yahoo Finance which is FREE. There is one demo in this preview but do understand that this will be used throughout my Arbitrage/Pair Trading phase in the next course of this Python Algo Trading Course Series

Module 9: Pretty trading charts with Matplotlib and PyQtChart

As this is the Infrastructure Building Block phase, our first phase on Arbitrage Pair Trading will have many demos available with source code. Let’s just focus on the capabilities of these cool Python charting packages

How you don’t need a billion to beat the market? HFT quant

 

How you don’t need a billion to beat the market? HFT quant

We have been tracking the performance of James Simons salary for the last few years. He has once again hit the top spot for the highest earners among hedge fund managers for 2016. Don’t you find it interesting how a mathematician founded one of the most sophisticated HFT firms out there? This is of course Renaissance Technologies. If you wondered what was his ‘retired’ salary was, it was 1.6 Billion. Not bad for someone who retired.

in summary, use this as a form of inspiration.

Here is the article to show the high earners among hedge fund founders
