traders: comparitively stupid, or ....?

<t>Great observations.Sometimes, the more precise, calculating, and inquisitive you are in your decision making, the more you become indecisivie. You get to pull the trigger more if you are partially "ignorant". This is actually my personal experience when I started out as an equities trader. I fina...

[Model Validation Quant] iBank vs. Global Consulting Firm

traders: comparitively stupid, or ....?

There's a difference between "book smart" and "street smart"."Book smart" does not mean he'll be sucessful in Wall Street. And as stated in Paul blog... every financial theory that we learned is flawed!

[Model Validation Quant] iBank vs. Global Consulting Firm

<t>RM counsultant role sounds broader than your current MV job. I don't suppose you will only do MV work as a consultant (Dominic pointed out in his post). If the work is indeed more than MV, then it might be a chance for you to develop a broader set of skills. This might prove useful when you event...

Are the markets random or deterministic?

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: ChicagoGuyThe concept of randomness goes a bit further...Say if you look at the sequence of decimal numbers in pi, they are totally random. There is no pattern. So could you conclude that pi is a random number? No. This is because there is a simple algorithm that spits ...

how to start your own chop shop?

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: LTrainThis may seem logical, but it is very different than my experience. Our fund is down small single digits for the year and we are taking serious HEAT from the invesors. Right or wrong, the feeling is that a hedge fund should always be up, or preserve capital at wor...

Which is the best trading method?

Somedevil: One quick question... you mention the word "invest" a lot of times in your previous post. So I assume for you, Investing = Trading. Some people may have a different view. That's might be part of the reason you get some flak from your original question.Cheers.

Are CFD a good instrument?

<t>Looks like a derivative that is more accessible to small time traders. Leverage, simple P/L calculation is a plus. It does not seem to be highly regulated so you risk dealing with non-legit shops just like forex. You must consider the provider's track record, their execution efficiency, the corre...
