EP 052: How quant strategies are created, scrutinized and introduced to the market w/ Ernie Chan

This week I had the great pleasure of speaking with Dr Ernest Chan, from Toronto (Canada).

While many traders in the quantitative arena will already be familiar with Ernie, here’s a brief intro…

You could say, Ernie had somewhat of an unconventional introduction to trading – he started out on a research team at IBM, using machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques, teaching computers to understand human languages – before joining a prop trading group.

Today, Ernie has upwards of 15 years applying similar techniques to the domain of finance and trading – working with multiple prop firms and hedge funds across his career. And currently, Ernie is the managing member of QTS Capital Management.

Reverse Interview: @ZachHurwitz speaks with Aaron Fifield about his development as a trader Pt. 2

You may recall for episode 25 I invited Zach Hurwitz back onto the podcast (after being a featured guest on episode 011), to grill me about my own trading progress – well we’re another 25 episodes on now, so I thought it’d be a good point to check in with you and give another update on how I’m tracking…

To do this, Zach joins me again for the big 5-0 – the first part is mostly Zach asking questions for me to answer, then we switch it up, and during the later part I fire questions at Zach to answer. We dive into a bunch of great topics (many listed below).

Just to add on this – pretty much every question asked during this episode has been crowd-sourced, so if you contributed a question last week, then there’s a good chance you’ll hear it asked at some point.

Tracking ‘stocks in play’ and acting on order book activity – intraday momentum w/ Bryce Edwards

I have a brilliant guest on the show this week who I can almost guarantee you’ve never heard of, he generally likes to fly under the radar, but thankfully for us he did agree to an interview – his name is Bryce Edwards.

Bryce is an Australian equities trader, he takes a discretionary approach, making his money from intraday price movements and goes home flat at the end of each day.

During the interview we walk through the 10+ years in the build up to Bryce becoming a profitable trader – he’s got an interesting story, and you may discover it’s quite relatable to your own situation.
