Mystery Man Moving Japan Made More Than 1 Million Trades - Bloomberg Business
One Rule

Instead, he keeps his ears open in chat rooms and his eyes glued to bid-ask screens, on which he monitors the market’s appetite for its 300 most heavily traded stocks. If there’s one basic principle, he says—repeatedly and slowly, as if instructing a child—it is this: “Buy stocks that are being bought, and sell stocks that are being sold.”

Lebenskunst: "Was ich betreibe ist eigentlich das Management des Kairos" | Gesellschaft | ZEIT ONLINE
Das klingt defensiv und gar nicht heroisch, ist aber vielleicht der klügste Umgang mit Chancen: »Man muss demütig bleiben.« Helden sterben einen frühen Tod.
Es ist ein Samstag, die Börsen ruhen, und der Eisbär kommt sich selbst auf die Schliche. »Was ich betreibe«, sagt er irgendwann fast verwundert, »ist eigentlich das Management des Kairos.«

Ist die Vorbereitung also das Geheimnis der guten Gelegenheit? Ganz schlicht und altmodisch: Nur wer sich durch Übung oder mentales Training auf die Chancen einstellt, kann sie auch ergreifen?

Dafür spricht in der Tat einiges. Auch in außergewöhnlichen Situationen

This is exactly what I did with business, instead of getting an MBA or a PhD.

Here's my reading list:

Here's the book I wrote, condensing what I learned in the process:

I now own my own business, work for myself as a business teacher and consultant, have an enormous amount of flexibility in my day-to-day schedule, and make more than professors who teach at top business schools.

Education is changing.

A VC: Employee Equity: The Option Strike Price
A few weeks back we talked about stock options in some detail. I explained that the strike price of an option is the price per share you will pay when you exercise the option and buy the underlying common stock. And I explained that the company is required to strike employee options at the fair market value of the company at the time the option is granted.

I want to learn a language to help me get into algorithmic trading, any advice? : programming
linguafranca 2 points3 points4 points 1 hour ago* [-] I haven't used Haskell, and as such I'm not endorsing it. But I've stumbled upon two parties that have talked about their experiences using Haskell for trading systems. * Jeff Polakow of Deutche Bank talks informally about this on CUFP 2008. I couldn't find a video of his talk online but this is the description of his talk and here are his slides. * Curt J. Sampson of Starling Software authored a more scientific report on his experiences (PDF) for a trading system and even held a pretty informative 20-minute talk on his report. Maybe this is an emerging market for this kind of work and possibly this is even a technologically viable approach. I'd recommend you do full prior research on this topic in order to know what you're looking for in your studies.........................fancy_pantser 0 points1 point2 points 54 minutes ago[-]
