More attention to be paid to Quantlabs.net in Insight Corporation

I would like to say that I must pay more attention to a fellow Blogger here at Insight Corporation. His name is Bryan Downing and he is from England, but lives in Toronto, Canada. He is a Software geek and expert with a knowledge base in Trading and Financial Markets.

Without a regular schedule I will post and re-post editions of Bryan’s Blog: Quantlabs.net. Specially on these topics: Quantitative Investment Strategies, Markets Infrastructure, Trading Algorithms and Risk Management technologies, which are ones where I see to be of mine and Bryan’s interest and expertise. I recommend also everyone to follow and check the Youtube video channel for the Blog.

Today’s post:

The Alpha Interface Blog

Recently I stumble upon, do not confuse here with a social media site, with this blog from a LinkedIn Financial Engineering Group member of which I’ve got the privilege to be a member and was impressed. Jeff Mishlove is a PhD in Finance and Financial Engineering and is an advocate of a Scientific approach to Investing and trading.  It is quite interesting the Blog that presents us with Jeff’s books on the subject called The Alpha Interface.

We can also find books and references to other authors in these fields like David Aronson and his Evidence-based Technical Analysis and a very promising subject for the future of Scientific and Technological based Investing and trading like Machine Learning for Algorithmic Trading of Financial Instruments.

The Blog is filled with posts featuring videos (the one below from the blog) with Jeff explaining the concepts that structure The Alpha Interface, and talking with David Aronson and contributors.

A terrific contribution to the world of Algorithmic Trading which certainly will please all the enthusiasts as well as providing an opportunity to learning, comment and feedback with the experts and experienced.
