HFT woo Asia students over banks

HFT woo Asia students over banks

High-Speed Traders Woo More Asia Recruits Than ‘Gloomy’ Banks

For students like Sun Jiaxuan at the National University of Singapore, the future of finance is all about high-frequency trading firms, not the Wall Street banks that graduates once aspired to. Recruiters from DRW Holdings LLC, a Chicago firm that’s expanding in Asia, found that out last month when they visited the school.

Thankfully I don’t need to look and all the more reason to be an indie trader. Screw them with their stupid test.

Future Public Webinar and Comments from satisfied students (and the best is still to come) …

Hi there

Are you wondering what some customers have to say about my quant video walkthroughs and tutorials? Here are a few examples:
* “You are just brilliant, sometimes wonder how you get to manage these … Fabulous Matlab tutorials which I have recently started working with.”
* “This is one amazing dude. He’s like a professor who just knows what you want and not feed you the garbage that other professors & “professionals” do.”
* “I learned the big picture and the theory, now I am getting practical insights, the meetup group is very useful in this sense, thank you for this.”
* “Very helpful. Keep doing.”
* “I find it interesting to push out the boundaries of my knowledge and understanding. Bryan is a very passionate and knowledgeable person and he also brings others with good knowledge into the discussions.”
* “This is an extremely educational group for anyone interested in learning more about quantitative finance and profitable trading. You don’t need to be an expert to join, some are here to teach and others are here to learn. We are all here to meet new people who share the same interest about quant finance as we do.”
I really appreciate comments like this! Because they highlight the straightforward and highly practical approach I take to explaining quant ideas and concepts.
And theory and teaching is just the beginning. Very shortly I’ll be customizing all these algorithms to create proprietary models available nowhere else.
Even more exciting, the membership is growing and we’ll shortly have a ‘critical mass’ of Premium members willing to contribute to and learn from these models as they’re developed. You’ll not find this anywhere else in a private quant-themed community.
All that’s coming with the private membership webinar and live demo infrastructure I’m working on now. And all of it’s designed to cut your learning curve dramatically in what’s normally a very “dark”, mysterious trading world.
Recent featured video walkthroughs include Monte Carlo simulations … Markov Chains … Autoregressive (AR(1)) and GARCH forecasting … ARIMA forecasting … Pairs Trading … and more!
Save time, save money, and minimize frustration and stress. Get involved now:
— > Get immediate access here. <–
Don’t forget that a Premium membership also includes loads of tutorials and softwarefor HFT software platform building. Plus exclusive algorithm coursestoo!
–> Go here for additional benefits! <–
Good trading, Bryan Quantlabs.net Editor “Those that know, don’t tell. Until now.”

What quant books to read before Financial Engineering for Computer Science Engineering students?

What quant books to read before Financial Engineering for Computer Science Engineering students?

m doing my CS Engg currently. I have applied for Financial Engineering for Fall 2012. Is there any prior preparation that I can do, any books I can read, so I can be better prepared for the course ?

 

https://www.quantnet.com/quantnet-best-selling-books-2011/

Stochastic calculus for Finance I and II by Steven Shreve.

 

You should focus on financial derivatives( John Hull).Since, you already have required computer skills with you from your Bachelor’s degree.All you need is more finance side knowledge: corporate finance, fixed income investments etc. In case you need more guidance, you can drop me a message on my profile.Good Luck!

 

A very useful book for preparation for an MFE program is “A Primer for the Mathematics of Financial Engineering” by Dan Stefanica and the associated solutions manual. Prof. Stefanica is the director of the Baruch MFE program and the book is based on his popular math refresher course that has been running for a few years. Having a good basis of the maths and programming is the required foundation for most of the coursework which includes Hull and Shreve in the first semester.

 

Here are some useful article from Joy Pathak, a blogger on Quantnet.com
https://www.quantnet.com/prepare-for-mfe/
and
https://www.quantnet.com/prepare-for-mfe-part-2/

 

Any one has the link of soft copy of “A Primer for the Mathematics of Financial Engineering” ?

 

You can review the topics of probability, differential equations and numerical analysis.

For probability, the books written by Sheldon Ross are written for the entry level and are pretty good (there is one called ‘First Course in Probability’ and another called ‘Probability Models’). Try to master the definitions and theorems in this book and it will be helpful when you go on to Shreve or another derivatives mathematics book. If you’ve mastered the basics, reading Shreve as Murat suggested would give you a leg up.

For differential equations, there are many books with the title ‘Advanced Engineering Mathematics’ and these are appropriate. Maybe you’ve used one already in your undergraduate studies. The one I used is by Dennis Zill, but there might be a better option. Even if you’ve gone through a book like this before, it’s good to review so everything’s closer in memory.

For numerical analysis there is a book by Kendall Atkinson called ‘An Introduction to Numerical Analysis’ and there is a lot of material on numerical analysis on the web as well.

Also, if you haven’t coded in C++ during your undergraduate, you should learn the syntax of C++ which I’m sure you will have no problem doing as a CS grad.

Good luck with you studies!

 

i guess there are many copies of “A Primer for the Mathematics of Financial Engineering” available at amazon.com or the like.

 

here is the link to the book http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0979757622?tag=quantfinaneng-20&creativeASIN=0979757622

If by “soft copy”, you mean PDF, then there is none in existence.

 

You should learn some mathematical or statistical software packages like R, Matlab, and SAS
