IMPORTANT checklist for money management for algo trading

As we know, my live FOREX trade account will be (AGAST) opened with Dukascopy soon. There is one last but highly critical step. That is to do a final checklist to see if I have implemented all necessary steps for a successful algo trading operation. I will spend most my on money management.  The forecasting tests seems pretty solid over the last few months. I do know myQuant Analytics members seems to think so as well.

Old trading rules like in FX broke down

Old trading rules like in FX broke down

Maybe what you learn from your human trading guru is useless. I even saw on a Youtube stream of big name retail trading gurus whine how the market no longer works for them

A standard textbook relationship that every student of economics learns in school has been flipped on its head, and it’s leading to a major rethink on the connection between bank balance sheets, exchange rates, global asset prices, and monetary policy.

Goldman Sachs rules the trading world

Goldman Sachs rules the world

Understand the simple rule that investment banks like Goldman Sachs will rule the world. Even the Occupy Wall Street movement tried to do something about it but it fell apart. Despite all the nice public relations coming out of the banks, do realize you’re still an indie business in this world of finance.

Watch this video from 2009 on a trader who speaks the truth!

Quant meltdown danger growing

Today’s trading research is driven by the world of quants. No one else. Not humans, not talking heads on TV, etc. Here is an assessment in why those quantbots still say we are all in danger!

SecDB and SLang secret sauce to Goldman Sach’s profit and saving grace of the 2008 financial crisis? Quants rules the roots now!

I like to use Goldman Sachs as a good role model for building out a tech operation built around being indie with your own source code.

…teams, to the point where it’s the uber-technical guys who are gaining ground at the top. Since the shake-up of Goldman’s senior technology ranks at the tail end of last year – when R. Martin Chavez took over from Steve Scopellite as chief information officer, and Don Duet and Paul Walker were installed as co-heads of technology – the ‘strats’ have been taking over, suggest our sources.

Chavez heralded from Goldman’s ‘strats’ team, which is largely a quantitative function with the ‘core strats’ building complex models across the bank’s trading desks. So did Walker, who joined the bank as a vice president in the FICC strats team in 2001. Most are not pure technologists – heralding from a science, maths and engineering background – but are still very computational.

Nonetheless, Goldman continues to offer a lot of opportunities for technologists – at least 25% of its employees work in tech. Lloyd Blankfein says that the bank is a “technology firm nowaday”, while Walker’s LinkedIn profile invites technologists to get in touch with the bank’s HR teams.

Former Employee – Equities Trading Strategist in New York, NY

I worked at Goldman Sachs

Pros

– best & brightest + very nice people
– SecDB, major competitive advantge, no other firm has this (altho they tried)
– exceptional quant talents (way smarter than traders)

Cons

– political on top (esp. the business side)
– like all banks, constant hustling
– some useless work just to get exposure or satisfy short term needs

Advice to Management

– better performance review procedure: it’s called 360 degree but in reality still one sided from manager
– make it a true meritocracy and reduce politics
