HFT mouth piece Manoj Nerang ex Tradewerx should work for consulting or educational training employer the frat boy traders pine for

HFT mouth piece Manoj Nerang ex Tradewerx should work for consulting or educational training employer the frat boy traders pine for

We have seen it before. The other whiner ex HFT operators end up working in some consulting or  educating company. Let them whine in some YouTube documentary about how ‘evil’ their former industry was when they clearly did not last. Talk about turncoats. I can think of a number of instances I cannot get into. I would rather look from the gutter up learning on my own merit of what I offer.  Like it or not, I have no external investors or bonehead bosses to report to, I have no reason to kiss anyone’s ass! If you are one of those Twitter trolls reading this, you are one massive moron I have no one to answer to. And no, I never liked Nerang but bless his poor little heart as he rides away into the sunset counting his last pennies.  Remember this is only opinion worth nothing to no one.

P.S. Who will be the new HFT poster boy ??

Request of tech answers for Apple Mac OSX for Python R Java 8 CPP Erlang Scala, quant trading research and HFT consulting needs

Request of tech answers for Apple Mac OSX for Python R Java 8 CPP Erlang Scala, quant trading research  and HFT consulting needs

Thanks to all on Twitter and other social media!

After dropping into a local Apple store, I fell love in again with their hardware and most of all service!!

I played with all the hardware from the latest Macbook to Imacs with the usual mobile devices from Apple. I started thinking about my future with why is everyone on Apple. It reminded why when i was a Mac head addicst 10 years ago.

Also, talking to others in learning about ‘newer’ languages like Scala amd Erlang, you kind of find out why they are gaining in popularity. Also with a recent comment on maybe just maybe, Python maybe eay  to finally install so here are some questions:

Ok enough of that stuff, here are some tech requests:

1a. What is your idea IDE (integrated development environment) for Python ? I like Sypder 2 but found it chokes on package management. Please tell me what you tuse as IDE for Mac OSX

b. Anyone using either Xcode or Eclipse for any languages? Which ones?

2. Is anyone integrating R and Python together for trading operation means (ie. trading execution to brokers)

3. What is your ideal C or C++ IDE for Mac OSX? Code::Blocks anyone?

4. What your ideal IDE for Sclada or Erlang? Anyone using the more recent Java 8?

5. Anyone tying together any of these tech languages component together? Are you using a message queueing library like ZeroMQ? Or do you embed certain engines into something like C++?

Let me know and thanks

Quant Premium Members now get my consulting Q&A but can no longer support general public in 2013

Quant Premium Members now get my consulting Q&A but can no longer support general public in 2013

I have been getting bombarded by people asking me trading, tech infrastructure questions, etc over the last few months. As of 2013, I can no long support FREE Q&A on this as it takes away the focus on my endeavors including my membership. As a result, I will be doing more Q&A sessions with no issue for my QuantLabs.net Premium Membership but not for people out side of that. Sorry, I just no longer have the time to support it. YOU can of course add comments on each blog posting,
Youtube Channel,

LinkedIn group

Facebook group

or Meetups for Quant Finance or R/Matlab Users.

That is what these are for!

My plan to get into 1 million plus quant jobs or consulting roles with technologies like C++, Matlab, .NET, Java, etc

My plan to get into 1 million plus quant jobs or consulting roles with technologies like C++, Matlab, .NET, Java, etc

I have had interviews at Bank of Montreal, Bloomberg, Citi, Morgan Stanley. I have come to the realization that I don’t want to be employed right now by these companies. They limit your growth and earning potential if you get good. I plan to go the quant route but for sure in a self employed route. Also, I want to build my architecture skills with the KDB, SQL Server/Sybase with CEP, C++, Matlab, and .NET. I also need to get a solid understanding of something like QuantLib and QuantLibXL for understanding the front end to this infrastructure. I am sure there would be some Marketcetera in there as well to understand how a HFT system works with something like the Strategy Agent to execute trades. It also has the QuickFix to understand the FIX protocol. It helps to learn Java here as well as it is built in Java.

If you get the understanding of all these tools and technologies, you should then focus on the quant building models/strategies within Matlab. It is great at prototyping. The other open source tools like Octave/Scilab don’t have the ease of use and extensibility you get with Matlab’s toolboxes. I am unsure of the compatibility of Matlab’s toolboxes with Octave/Scilab. To get the high paying quant jobs, you need to really beef up your quant modelling skills within something like Matlab.

Once achieved, you should be able to demand a very high paying six figure or even seven figure jobs with a profit share if you have a high Sharpe ratio profit and loss. This could take years of experience. Remember, going on this path may limit if you don’t have a CFA, Masters, or PHD. I have neither so I doubt a company may hire me. But after reading a Bloomberg article about Goldman Sachs’ hiring process, they just want someone with enthusiasm and willing to work hard. They seem not to care about age or degrees so I guess I would have a shot. I am sure all of the above could take years to achieve.

Let’s also be realistic. I may never even achieve or just get $80K a year. Who knows right?
