Cohen backed Quantopian starts fund for external investors

This could be pure genius if Mr. Stephen Cohen would decide to use Quantopian as a front to help fund his operation with external capital. Apparent his new Point 72 is not growing as fast as he would like so Quantopian could be a fantastic proxy for his investments. I could be wrong as well.

 

Here is that article I speak of

 

As I slightly hinted in an email and posting, I’ll be going through an exhaustive testing phase to validate my theories of volatility in currency trading. I’m hoping to reveal some positive relationships and patterns that may be helpful to my supportive Quant Analytics members. In fact I may do an unconventional Live meet up webinar for them next week sometime. It will be very last minute to focus on these theories and results. Be aware of this coming up. Once again I’ll only be available for my Quant Analytics members only.

 

Yesterday I revealed some of my daily analysis for my Quant Analytics Lite service here’s the latest headline from today.

NZ dollar hit after party agreement and China develerages to expand GDP

Quantopian use typical returns posted as they drop live broker connectivity 

Quantopian use typical returns posted as they drop live broker connectivity

Finally it has been revealed how people are doing on Quantopian. Guess what? They are dropping their live trading support to their connection of provided brokers I ain’t going to get into the politics of it but the returns I am seeing is quite significant. To bad people use this type of platform for their algo trading.  This is why I stress you need to be directly connected to your brokers. Always cuts out as many middle connections as possible!

Installation failure with Quantopian Pyfolio 

 

Massive failure with Quantopian Pyfolio

Over the weekend I tried to install both Zipline and Pyfolio (open source packages from Quantopian) into my Python environments. I have both Python 2.7 and 3.6. After the attempt of implementation, both packages completely failed my out of box tests which is a rare event for me. I am not sure if it was coding or some glitch in the installation process. The lesson to be learned here is that there is in fact better alternatives for the same functionality you would get with a cloud service like Quatopian. The best part is you own and control every single step when it comes to generating your trading to systematically submitting your order to a broker. In a nutshell, I would never let an external company or service ever own those processes including black box technology.

Here is a video of my attempt to use this PyFolio Python package.

We tried another one but why do these keep failing when trying to implement

Statistical Arb trading with Quantopian

Statistical Arbitrage with Quantopian

 

Stat arb is not such a simple strategy as it sounds. It is a combo of other factors which can be combined to make you pair trading effect more accurate. I got such a strategy but I am not sure yet if I would ever deploy it.

Here is a simplistic way from this Quantopian video

I will be scheduling another Monday nite event just like la few days ago! Just so you know a recap has been posted but the webinar was actually NOT recorded due to someone’s personal info was revealed.

More Quantopian alt hedge fund announcements

Another Quantopian like alternative hedge fund approach looking for ‘suckers’ (I mean strategists) to pony up their trading ideas

 

New York, NY, May 15, 2017 – Momenta Capital Management LLC (MCM), a Greenwich, Connecticut global macro investment advisor, today announced an agreement with the Algorithmic Traders Association (ATA) to establish the new Global Strategies Platform (GSP).

Under the terms of the agreement, qualified members of the ATA’s community of emerging systematic managers can take advantage of the opportunity to be onboarded to the GSP as part of a new and diversified macro portfolio. The GSP macro portfolio will be available for investment by qualified institutional investors seeking unique Alpha-generating strategies.

The GSP is currently accepting applications from emerging systematic managers and authors of systematic trading strategies, apply to join the GSP here: http://www.atassn.com/capital

The GSP Portfolio has the potential to accelerate managers’ institutional-level asset bases by exploring the inherent knowledge and expertise of a massive talent pool. MCM and ATA will partner with talented managers who have drafted and tested investment strategies that meet the high implementation and returns benchmarks.

“Institutional Investors understand that intelligently designed and executed ideas are often developed by emerging managers or strategists. These ideas, coupled with an efficient execution platform and disciplined risk management, form the basis for delivering favorable and consistent risk-adjusted returns in today’s markets.”

– Nick Vasserman, CIO of Momenta Capital Management, LLC.
