Something I always preach vs just something like VIX

Someone in my Facebook group notified me of this QuantInsti webinar. All I can say is that implied volatility is more moving forward looking as opposed to the lazy view of VIX. It is an aggregate of historical pricing of the S&P 500 which is an average of the largest stock. It can only be used as a continuous gauge so why would you trade like that? You need to forecast the future, not the present.

Watch this video to understand

Just as note, I am finishing off the third version of the new Quant Analytics service. Why so many versions? I will do a review of the sub-par software we rely on to implement this.

Anyhow, I will be posting various videos to highlight the changes once complete which will be hopefully later today. I really don’t doing these different versions but it is part of any software development process we all go through.

This comes from someone on my Facebook group. This is also from QuantInsti

Fractal Brain Theory Book review

When I was younger, I was always excited to see the salaries of some of the best hedge fund managers. From what I learned a lot of it was due to heavy duty math and this thing called quantitative analysis. As the years of gone by and learning from multi million trading institutions, most strongly hinted to focus on simple trading strategies and math.

Here is one lesson that maybe too advanced for us mere math mortals

Because math is not my strength, many of the higher learning students have a huge advantage. From the high-end courses and people, I learn from, there is a common thread of keeping the math simple arithmetic and use fundamental techniques. I’m not saying these advanced math needs are useless, it is just too far down the path for me to learn at this point. To be honest I just want to get a simple but highly efficient trading system up and running ASAP. From there I’ll advance into the more math stuff later on in the year or beyond. This is all based on to challenge myself. Then of course we get into the world of machine learning which is still fairly new for trading. I’ve heard stories about how its consistent performance has not shown above average benchmark performance.

As you know I’m coming down to the wire on the architecture of my software trading platform which I present on Monday. And so I want to be challenged by any advanced techies. I most likely will only be doing this once as I have decided finally on the technologies and frameworks that I want to use.

Here are the details of this free online webinar presentation
