The Rise of Cloud Computing for Quant Development on Wall Street

The Rise of Cloud Computing for Quant Development on Wall Street

Looking to cut their capital expenditures on servers and applications, financial services firms are warming up to private clouds run outside their firewalls.

As Wall Street continues to struggle with volatile markets, uncertain global economic conditions and vanishing profits, many firms are looking to reduce their capital expenditures. Targeting the costs of building data centers and maintaining server farms, more and more Wall Street organizations are looking to outsource pieces of their infrastructures to the cloud.

While all of the largest financial firms already are experimenting with cloud technology in non-production areas such as server provisioning and storage networks, most remain cautious about security and refuse to let client data leave the relative safety of their own facilities.

After facing sluggish profits and lower trading volumes last year, however, Wall Street firms are looking to convert large, up-front “cap-ex,” or capital expenditures, into more variable “op-ex,” or operational expenditures. As financial firms react to tighter IT budgets and the pressure to allocate resources to developing new products and entering new markets, the adoption of third-party cloud-based applications and services is expected to gain momentum in 2012.

As a simple example for beginners,

a trading strategy that went long on the S&P 500 companies ranking in the top decile and short on the firms in the lowest decile would have returned 12.1 percent gains over the past six months while the market was down 19 percent.

So if you wonder WHY sentiment analysis tools can be useful for investment strategies?

Sentiment analysis tools are helping investment managers design trading signals by giving them feeds or by creating these measures of sentiment or measures of momentum. Some of the big hedge funds can do this already because they have hundreds of programmers. But this is a low-cost way that anyone can get access to really exhaustive data scraped from the web.

MJE Advisors Quoted in CNN Money – “Wall Street’s shrinking job pool”

MJE Advisors Quoted in CNN Money – “Wall Street’s shrinking job pool”

“We’re seeing lots of hiring for outsourced compliance activity,” said Frank Carr, an independent Wall Street recruiter with MJE advisors.

 

MF Global just put 1600 people out on the job market. Don’t expect them to get hired in 2011. Other recently laid off Wall Street employees will have a tough time too.

what type of compliance activity is being outsourced and who leading in hiring.

Canada’s message to Wall Street: we’ve got jobs

Canada’s message to Wall Street: we’ve got jobs

mobile.reuters.com

Canada’s message to Wall Street: we’ve got jobs * Canadian bank employment growing from 2010 highs * Toronto bankers in New York to try to attract talent * Shaky loan growth, capital markets could slow hiring TORONTO, Oct 5…

Nice that Canadian banks hiring outside Canada,or trying to recruit to Canada but not much of a blessing to unemployed in their own country. Let’s hope we don’t import those same abuses that got those US and foreign banks in the mess they got into.

What Would Happen if Wall Street Were Under Water?

As regular readers will know I have a habit of drifting off topic, but I hope you’ll forgive me just this once. I’ve been AWOL from these hallowed halls hand in hand with Irene over the weekend, and thinking some idle thoughts whilst I was at it.

Wall Street is of course under water metaphorically, but what if it were literally under water too? It seems that’s just what would happen “from a Category 3-4 hurricane hitting just south of NYC.”.

Whilst we’re in a speculative mood, what do you think would happen if a Category 3-4 hurricane headed instead for a GE Mark I nuclear reactor containment vessel built to withstand winds of 128 miles per hour?

IRENE BECOMES POST-TROPICAL NEAR THE U.S./CANADIAN BORDER. THE TROPICAL STORM WARNING FOR THE EAST COAST OF THE UNITED STATES HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. ELEVATED WATER LEVELS ALONG THE COAST OF NEW ENGLAND WILL SUBSIDE OVERNIGHT…

I’m confident that NYSE has a pretty good DR plan in place such that they would be able to continue as business as usual, even if you don’t. Assuming that your server sitting near the exchange handling your trading strategies doesn’t make it….

While this might be a bit off topic, wouldn’t having a discussion about how you plan and handle DR for your servers that are just off the floor in a leased space be of value?

As to your speculative question…
The storm itself isn’t going to be the issue. Its the storm surge that could have an impact depending on its location. Also the location of the back up generators….

Thanks for your input. Do you suppose Black Swans travel in pairs? My question wasn’t entirely rhetorical since:

1. Here’s a recent picture of Secaucus Road, where Equinix NY4 is located:

1. Katia is currently on a track slightly to the north of Irene’s, and is currently forecast to become Cat 3 on Saturday.

Her storm surge certainly could ultimately have an impact somewhere. Does anyone know where NYSE and/or NY4’s backup generators are located, for example?
