As usual, it seems these fools never mention on how Google Trends has severely limited ways to use the service in including the number of requests. I am sure they will sell you something

AII Investor Update: How I Monitor my Stocks

seekingalpha.com

A key task for investors who own individual stocks is to regularly monitor them. Such analysis requires specifically looking for those items that could give you reason to either continue favoring a stock or sell it. A proper…

 

Thanls for sharing this information to AAII. I am still awaiting the Best of the Best reading list that I believe was being compiled @the beginning of the year! Many Thanks.

 

Glad you find this information helpful. I’m not sure what “best of the best” reading list you’re referring to, but here is a list of the best ever Seeking Alpha articles, as chosen by the editors, to celebrate the millionth registered user of the website a few weeks ago:

Is that what you were referring to? Or did you mean something else?

 

Thanks for your comments and for sending the link. There was a guy who surveyed all the members of this group about 2-3 months ago asking what each member’s favorite hedge fund book was. He indicated that he was compiling a list of these titles and since then no word. I believe that his name is Adam,too but I can’t be certain of that. Does this sound familiar? Were

 

;I’d love to see that list of recommendations, myself, though. Have you thought of messaging the group’s manager to ask them? They may remember who was compiling the list.

This might be helpful to people as well: it’s a list of articles discussing fund-holdings and an analysis and assessment of each of those decisions and how they have fared:

 

Do you know who the manager of the group is? By the way, we have been “hacked”

 

I use technical Analysis monitor the long and short term historical price trends. I also use MACD – Moving averages Convergence Divergences. This will take some time to learn. What I find to be very useful is the overall price trend. Also, you need a strategy for each position you take and these strategies may involve option trading. Give me a little more information and I will be glad to provide some advice.

 

I’m not sure how many of these are specifically hedge-fund-related books, but you might find this list helpful. It’s a collection of book reviews on Seeking Alpha that have been chosen as “editor’s picks”:

Thanks for the suggestions. What did you think of the AAII Investor article? Do you find that your approach to portfolio management has changed over the years, given the financial crisis?

How to monitor your quant HFT high frequency trading network for low latency?

How to monitor your quant HFT high frequency trading network for low latency?

This company was noticed on Linked In. Here are some of their benefits:

To stay competitive they invest substantial sums of money to accelerate information flow between traders, exchanges and applications. This means constantly striving for lower network latency and higher application performance.

At Endace, we work with some of the largest financial institutions in the world to help measure and monitor their trading infrastructures. The rapid growth in the high performance trading sector globally, fueled by market deregulation and an increase in the number of alternative trading venues, has created new demand for high speed, high accuracy packet capture and analysis tools to measure, monitor and analyse traffic. Which is exactly what we do best.

What they do:

Our Low Latency Monitoring solution is in use all over the world, helping large investment banks and high performance trading companies build competitive advantage. We find that most of our customers are trying to solve at least one, if not more, of the following problems.

Analyse trading and performance anomalies
Measure and monitor for latency in market data and trade execution
Create a single authoritative data source that every system and individual can leverage
Achieve Reg NMS and MiFID compliance
Deliver absolute timing accuracy for timing arbitrage across large physical distances
Assist with the efficient deployment of multiple real-time applications
Benchmark the performance of trade-execution venues

Other solutions:
Endace’s solution consists of a network of managed Probes linked together to form a packet capture and analysis “fabric”. Each Probe not only timestamps and captures every single packet of information to the onboard disk (so that’s every piece of market data and every trade), but also enables you to run multiple analytics, measurement and monitoring applications on the data in real time / non-real time.

Every packet is captured, timestamped, written to disk
Each and every packet is made available for analysis by up to 6 different applications in both real and/or non-real time
Raw packets can be accessed and mined by individuals within the organisation using a range of different tools
All applications are fed from a single, authoritative source of network traffic
