 Wednesday, April 25, 2018

As a result of promoting false strategies, every year financial firms defraud investors for tens of billions of dollars. In this article we examine why false positives are so prevalent in finance, why researchers fail (in many cases purposely) to detect them, and why firms are able to monetize their scheme.

Bernie had a neutral outlook to investing. Everything mean reverts to returns on cash. So he kept everything in cash. Nothing wrong with that.

The fraud is to backtest nonsense like whether to buy a stock on sunny london friday afternoons in the first place rather than apply oneself with the machine to conduct proper investment research on said stock. ML/DL s job is to accelerate and enhance research, credibly, and so in full knowledge of time tested fundamental investing precepts. Progress comes from bringing together the body of knowledge from both discretionary and systematic strategies. Https//app.butterwire.com

I would have to go back to the old saying if it sounds to good to be true it probably isn't Common sense to investing money that even if you don’t have rely on technology to give that good feel nature on investments also if you had to run the business yourself if all has failed should tell you about wether to invest or not.

Life is simple, we humans make it too complicated. So also is trading. There is nothing new under the sun, what now is - has been before and as long as the sun is yet to be down, what now is will continue to be. The markets never really change, we humans do. If there's any good algorithm, it must have a good historical trading and so it should hold good promise of successful trading in the future. As long as a trading strategy is well tested and not hyped, Follow it!
