Quantitative Technical Analysis: An integrated approach to trading system development and trading management
Quantitative Technical Analysis: An integrated approach to trading
This book, the fifth by Dr. Howard Bandy, discusses an integrated approach to trading system development and trading management.It begins with a discussion and quantification of the several aspects of risk.1. The trader's personal tolerance for risk.2. The risk inherent in the price fluctuations of the issue to be traded.3. The risk added by the trading system rules.4. The trade-by-trade risk experienced during trading. An original objective function, called "CAR25," based on risk-normalized profit potential is developed and explained. CAR25 is as near a universal objective function as I have found.The importance of recognizing the non-stationary characteristics of financial data, and techniques for handling it, are discussed.There is a general discussion of trading system development, including design, testing, backtesting, optimization, and walk forward analysis. That is followed by two parallel development paths -- one using traditional trading system development platform and the second machine learning. Recognizing the importance of position sizing in managing trading, an original technique based on empirical Bayesian analysis, called "dynamic position sizing" and quantified in a metric called "safe-f," is introduced. Computer code implementing dynamic positio...

Container Terminals and Automated Transport Systems: Logistics Control Issues and Quantitative Decision Support
Container Terminals and Automated Transport Systems: Logistics Control
Container transportation is the predominant mode of inter-continental cargo traffic. Since container ships and port terminals involve a huge capital investment and significant daily operating costs, it is of crucial importance to efficiently utilize the internal resources of container terminals and transportation systems. Today there is an ongoing trend to use automated container handling and transportation technology, in particular, in countries with high labour costs. This in turn requires highly sophisticated control strategies in order to meet the desired performance measures. The primary objective of this book is to reflect these recent developments and to present new insights and successful solutions to operational problems of automated container terminals and transportation systems. It comprises reports on the state of the art, applications of quantitative methods, as well as case studies and simulation results. Its contributions are written by leading experts from academia and business. The book addresses practitioners as well as academic researchers in logistics, transportation, and management.

#1 New York Times Bestseller “Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —The New York Times Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to Fortune magazine. Dalio himself has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes a...

Mathematical Modeling in Systems Biology: An Introduction (The
An introduction to the mathematical concepts and techniques needed for the construction and analysis of models in molecular systems biology. Systems techniques are integral to current research in molecular cell biology, and system-level investigations are often accompanied by mathematical models. These models serve as working hypotheses: they help us to understand and predict the behavior of complex systems. This book offers an introduction to mathematical concepts and techniques needed for the construction and interpretation of models in molecular systems biology. It is accessible to upper-level undergraduate or graduate students in life science or engineering who have some familiarity with calculus, and will be a useful reference for researchers at all levels.The first four chapters cover the basics of mathematical modeling in molecular systems biology. The last four chapters address specific biological domains, treating modeling of metabolic networks, of signal transduction pathways, of gene regulatory networks, and of electrophysiology and neuronal action potentials. Chapters 3–8 end with optional sections that address more specialized modeling topics. Exercises, solvable with pen-and-paper calculations, appear throughout the text to encourage interaction with the mathemati...

Quantitative Momentum: A Practitioner's Guide to Building a
The individual investor's comprehensive guide to momentum investing Quantitative Momentum brings momentum investing out of Wall Street and into the hands of individual investors. In his last book, Quantitative Value, author Wes Gray brought systematic value strategy from the hedge funds to the masses; in this book, he does the same for momentum investing, the system that has been shown to beat the market and regularly enriches the coffers of Wall Street's most sophisticated investors. First, you'll learn what momentum investing is not: it's not 'growth' investing, nor is it an esoteric academic concept. You may have seen it used for asset allocation, but this book details the ways in which momentum stands on its own as a stock selection strategy, and gives you the expert insight you need to make it work for you. You'll dig into its behavioral psychology roots, and discover the key tactics that are bringing both institutional and individual investors flocking into the momentum fold. Systematic investment strategies always seem to look good on paper, but many fall down in practice. Momentum investing is one of the few systematic strategies with legs, withstanding the test of time and the rigor of academic investigation. This book provides invaluable guidance on constructing your ow...

Factors of Soil Formation: A System of Quantitative
"Hans Jenny's … oeuvre ranks among those of the giant in the earth sciences. Even within this rarefied atmosphere of intellectual achievements, his book Factors of Soil Formation stands out as a masterpiece." — from the Foreword by Ronald Amundson, University of California at BerkeleyHans Jenny (1899–1992), who taught at the University of California at Berkeley for 31 years, was a world authority on soils and soil formation. Factors of Soil Formation, his most influential work, is an advanced treatise on theoretical soil science. It has been said that this book, long considered a masterpiece of scientific methodology, had as great an impact on soil science as Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species had on the study of evolution.The book offers both a detailed discussion of the nature of the earth's terrestrial environment and a method of subdividing and studying it. The first two chapters are devoted to definitions and concepts, and methods of presentation of soil data. Chapters 3 through 7 explore the roles of time, parent material, topography, climate and organisms in the formation of soil. Chapter 8 presents conclusions.Though it was written more than 50 years ago, Factors of Soil Formation has not been superseded, nor has Jenny's theory of how soils and ecosystems form b...
