Quant meltdown danger growing

Quant meltdown danger growing

I think I said it before about quant robots:

“This is made worse by the fact that the increase in algorithmic trading means that a small number of firms may account for a large proportion of trading volume. When this happens quant-driven hedge funds are their own worst enemies — it’s the market equivalent of the Tragedy of the Commons…….

With this in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that before the market meltdown there were concerns about crowded trades and stern warnings that it was just a matter of time before the system went to hell in a hand basket.”

Robotic selling by quantitative investment funds tuned to volatility and price trends contributed to last month’s losses in U.S. stocks and is only about halfway completed, according to a JPMorgan Chase & Co. strategist.

While selling by the first is “largely out of the way,” trend followers and risk-parity users have more to do, Mr. Kolanovic wrote: as much as $60-billion for the former and the rest of the forecast related to the latter.

“We expect elevated volatility and downside price risk to persist,” Mr. Kolanovic wrote. “In our view, the risk/reward for equity investors remains in favor of waiting, rather than being fully invested until there is more clarity from macro data and central banks.”

Proof you could forecast Chinese market meltdown

After this posting: https://quantlabs.net/blog/2015/09/black-swan-nassim-taleb-hedge-fund-billionaire/

We got this conversation going on Facebook:

I have talked to him and his collaborator Raphael Douady who developed Anti-fragiity,Fragility Transfer theorem and etc…. Do you think this VIX movement and Crash on recent Monday was unpredictable and just a random event ? Black Swan considers it a random occurrence. Prof. Taleb doesn’t predict .He simply warns to manage risk using his “Anti-fragiity” approach “STATICALLY”. As Didier Sornette,whose advice has been helpful for many hedge funds to earn many billions in past claims to predict his Dragon Kings”DYNAMICALLY” using Bubble & Crash detection mechanism. P.S. Randomness has hidden Synchronicity rather than claiming its unpredictable ,which is extremely hard to do. Thanks.

He saw it months ahead like all all the insider did! Check the link results below with the dates. If you saw this in an automated way, you would be able to afford a brand new Ferrari in each custom color. You would also be paying cash. Only fools (aka human traders with emotions) would have not seen but they like to argue against it!! https://quantlabs.net/blog/?s=bubble

I would like you to watch this carefully before commenting. Thanks. http://www.ted.com/…/didier_sornette_how_we_can_predict…

I have heard about this as well but when you look at the creation date, does this mean he saw something back in 2013. If so, he missed the mark by 2 years! If you follow the ‘bubble’ search link above, you will note that the reliable pros go it within 3 months ahead. You just read about it in reliable Bloomberg everyday. I cannot argue about this but everyone chooses their own path in predicting the market. I have seen many mathematical ways to forecast which I hope to automate one day!

Choose well my friend, choose well.

Global bond panic? Meltdown in finance ? What you think?

Global bond panic? Meltdown in finance ? What you think?


Somebody just sent me this FPGA acceleration video based around OpenCL. This is from Altera the board 
manufacturer recently purchased by Intel. This is definitely exciting times as it legitimizes FPGA 
for potential high-frequency trading deployment options. My favorite is definitely using Matlab's 
Simulink option which can code generate into C++ or VHDL. Check out that video here.

This is the future of my Elite membership when I start working on simulation models in hopefully a
 couple of months. 

Is this global Bond decline the start of an eventual catalyst of the next financial meltdown? I really
hope not but I thought this had died down over the last few weeks since Bill Gross the Bond King spoke 
of his shorting the Deutsche Bund. Read that Yahoo finance article here.

So it's on! I have to get into trading action ASAP so I started a new Blog category on Trading. More to 
come in coming days.
