Physics PHD is valuable for quant research

Physics PHD is most valuable for quant research

Many people ask me what sort of major should they acquire while at University for a Quant research career. What I have seen, it is always a physics major. I also found recently a Goldman Sachs recruiting video that confirms what banks want which confirms my theory.

See see this video here

 

Human education hold you back for trading PROFIT potential

As being no stranger to controversy, I posted a video on what I think in how human trading can really hold your potential back. If you stick with automated trading, you will be able to maximize your opportunities in various capabilities you never thought of.

 

Go here to see my latest video on this topic

 

I am now starting to work on a modified Karen Super Trader Simulink model with full automation demos coming soon. Source code will also be available to all my Quant Elite members.

 

As usual thanks for reading

Physics PHD is most valuable for quant research

There seems to be a misconception on what kind of PHD degrees are need for TRUE quant research. This recruiting video showcases Goldman Sachs gives preference to Physics for the way they apply math into trading. I can also confirm that is pretty well for all lucrative positions in a lot of finance jobs.

Don’t blame me after watching this OK?

Is this quant trading advanced algo from a Goldman Sachs and Stanford PHD legit

This just came in from a mysterious person I don’t know. I am not event sure if this is legit.

Hi Friend,

I thought this might be of interest to you.

Times have changed.

Algorithms are now 100 times more capable

of predicting price movement than humans.

Check out the FREE presentation to see what

happened when an ex Goldman Sachs Trader

and a Phd from Stanford teamed up to create

the most advance algorithm out there to date.

Check this out NOW:
