GOLDMAN SACHS: Best time in a decade to invest in commodities

GOLDMAN SACHS: Best time in a decade to invest in commodities

They say it is cheap and will have higher demand. All from Goldman Sachs

Highlights:

  • It’s the best time in a decade to invest in commodities, according to Goldman Sachs.
  • The firm raised their six-month price targets on Brent crude oil and copper amid less supply, more demand, and lower inventories.
  • Their bullish outlook accounts for last year’s rally, which has helped producers clean up their balance sheets and invest in future growth.

Again! When do these morons getting hired learn. This is a no go in these banks . This guys is a tool as this guy will lose.

No more humans CME closes future trading

..floors that is

You can thank HFT for that

Was that Goldman Sach high frequency trading HFT quant stolen source code worth $21 billion?

Was that Goldman Sach high frequency trading HFT quant stolen source code worth $21 billion?
It was only 32 MB of code, but it was it worth as much as $21 billion when you include FHT systems generate $21 billion. I am more than sure that Goldman’s systems are worth a big chunk of that!! Here are some highlights from another cool article:

For example, high-frequency trading firms, which represent approximately 2% of the 20,000 or so trading firms operating in the U.S. markets today, account for 73% of all U.S. equity trading volume. These companies include proprietary trading desks for a small number of major investment banks, less than 100 of the most sophisticated hedge funds and hundreds of the most secretive prop shops, all of which operate with one thing in mind — capture profit opportunities by being smarter and faster than the closest competition.

The key to being smarter is their unique technology that enables them to profit on a number of these quantitative strategies, which they will protect at all costs.

Proprietary trading takes in a number of unique strategies, including market making, arbitrage (ETFs, futures, options), pairs trading and others based on the linked trading of more than one asset class, e.g., futures index and cash equities. In fact TABB Group estimates that annual aggregate profits of low-latency arbitrage strategies exceed $21 billion, spread out among the few hundred firms that deploy them

First, strategies that optimize the value of high-frequency algorithmic trading are highly dependent on ultralow latency. The right decisions are based on flowing information into your algorithm microseconds sooner than your competitors. To realize any real benefit from implementing these strategies, a trading firm must have a real-time, colocated, high-frequency trading platform—one where data is collected and orders are created and routed to execution venues in sub-millisecond times.

Last and most important, this code has a limited shelf life, whose competitive advantage is diluted with each second it is outstanding. While a prop desk’s high level trading strategy may be consistent over time, the micro-level strategies are constantly altered — growing stale after a few days if not sooner — for two important reasons.

There’s no doubt that Goldman Sachs, or any other proprietary trading firm, could indeed lose tens of millions of dollars from its proprietary trading if their strategies are stolen — and that is very serious.

C++ interview questions gleaned from Bloomberg, Bank of America, Goldman Sach, Microsoft

There are so many questions for interviews. These were gleaned from careercup.com There are over 300 pages in this document. Entire downloadable PDF at the bottom of this post. It contains well over 300 pages. Next up is compiling questions for Java for a job interview at Morgan Stanley in Montreal. I am prepping for Bloomberg C++ in NYC.

Is the size of the class and object always same ?Why is it so ?
If the class has static members, then these members are not stored in the object. Inspite of that will the class and object have the same size ?

I would say that for the class, the size of the static is taken into consideration, where as for the object you do not because static does not instantiate an object. So, in this case: size of the class would be 8 bytes and size of the object will be 4 bytes

What do you mean y size of a class..? Unless and until you instantiate, the memory will not be allocated right? Just class does not make sense right? Please clarify.

Yes, you are right. But, assuming that the object has been instantiated, the size of the class will be 8 bytes ‘on paper’ and 4 bytes for the object

What is pure virtual function ?
—-
how is a system call executed.. when the API resides in the user space how are u still able to

whenever an API is called from User mode that would require a service from an underlying kernel module, the system traps to kernel mode to execute the requested service.
the system calls transfers the control from user program mode which is of low privilege to kernel mode ( high privilege )

you inadvertently overwrite some portion of memory that some pointer or a variable is
memory corruption, call stack corruption. In unix, scope is limited to these 2 inside a process. In RTOS, the corruption can span across multiple tasks/processes
—-
what does fork do, can the child process use the fd’s immediately
fork copies the snapshot of the process. The special case of fd’s, kernel makes sure these are properly duplicated and available for child process immediately

what is new in C++, and operator, function, functor
operator

how will you write constructor such that if will deallocates memory when there is exception.
duplicate Q. Ans: By using function try-blocks. The key word here is ‘function’
They have explained why do you need function try blocks for constructors. Somewhere in that article.. it says if exception occurs in function try block then whatever objects that were successfully created will be destructed by calling their destructors.

// Example 1(a): Constructor function-try-block
//
C::C()
try
: A ( /*…*/ ) // optional initialization list
, b_( /*…*/ )
{
}
catch( … )
{
// We get here if either A::A() or B::B() throws.

// If A::A() succeeds and then B::B() throws, the
// language guarantees that A::~A() will be called
// to destroy the already-created A base subobject
// before control reaches this catch block.
}
