Authors: Maureen O’Hara, David Easley, Marcos M López de Prado

Category: High Frequency Trading

This is the survival guide for trading in a world where high-frequency trading predominates in markets, accounting for upwards of 60% of trading in equities and futures, and 40% in foreign exchange.

High-frequency trading is the subject of extensive debate, particularly as to whether it is beneficial for traders and markets or instead allows some traders to benefit at others expense.

This book provides you with an important overview and perspective on this area, with a particular focus on how low-frequency traders and asset managers can survive in the high-frequency world.

Machine Learning for Asset Managers (Elements in Quantitative Finance)Machine Learning for Asset Managers (Elements in Quantitative Finance):

Author: Marcos M López de Prado

Category: Machine Learning

Successful investment strategies are specific implementations of general theories. An investment strategy that lacks a theoretical justification is likely to be false. Hence, an asset manager should concentrate her efforts on developing a theory rather than on backtesting potential trading rules. The purpose of this Element is to introduce machine learning (ML) tools that can help asset managers discover economical and financial theories. ML is not a black box, and it does not necessarily overfit. ML tools complement rather than replace the classical statistical methods. Some of ML’s strengths include

(1) a focus on out-of-sample predictability over variance adjudication

(2) the use of computational methods to avoid relying on (potentially unrealistic) assumptions

(3) the ability to “”learn”” complex specifications, including nonlinear, hierarchical, and noncontinuous interaction effects in a high-dimensional space

(4) the ability to disentangle the variable search from the specification search, robust to multicollinearity and other substitution effects.

Algorithmic and High-Frequency Trading (Mathematics, Finance and Risk)Algorithmic and High-Frequency Trading (Mathematics, Finance and Risk):

Authors: Álvaro Cartea, Sebastian Jaimungal, José Penalva

Category: High Frequency Trading

The design of trading algorithms requires sophisticated mathematical models backed up by reliable data. In this textbook, the authors develop models for algorithmic trading in contexts such as executing large orders, market making, targeting VWAP and other schedules, trading pairs or collection of assets, and executing in dark pools. These models are grounded on how the exchanges work, whether the algorithm is trading with better-informed traders (adverse selection), and the type of information available to market participants at both ultra-high and low frequency. Algorithmic and High-Frequency Trading is the first book that combines sophisticated mathematical modelling, empirical facts and financial economics, taking the reader from basic ideas to cutting-edge research and practice. If you need to understand how modern electronic markets operate, what information provides a trading edge, and how other market participants may affect the profitability of the algorithms, then this is the book for you.

An Introduction to High-Frequency FinanceAn Introduction to High-Frequency Finance:

Authors: Ramazan Gençay, Michel Dacorogna, Ulrich A. Muller, Olivier Pictet, Richard Olsen

Category: High Frequency Trading

Liquid markets generate hundreds or thousands of ticks (the minimum change in price a security can have, either up or down) every business day. Data vendors such as Reuters transmit more than 275,000 prices per day for foreign exchange spot rates alone. Thus, high-frequency data can be a fundamental object of study, as traders make decisions by observing high-frequency or tick-by-tick data. Yet most studies published in financial literature deal with low frequency, regularly spaced data. For a variety of reasons, high-frequency data are becoming a way of understanding market microstructure. This book discusses the best mathematical models and tools for dealing with such vast amounts of data.

The application of AI to financial trading is still a nascent field, although at the time of writing there are a number of other books available that cover this topic to some extent. Many of these publications, however, fail to show what it means to economically exploit statistical inefficiencies.

Some hedge funds already claim to exclusively rely on machine learning to manage their investors’ capital. A prominent example is The Voleon Group, a hedge fund that reported more than six billion dollars (USD) in assets under management at the end of 2019 (see Lee and Karsh 2020). The difficulty of relying on machine learning to outsmart the financial markets is reflected in the fund’s performance of 7% for 2019, a year during which the S&P 500 stock index rose by almost 30%.

Some people still view Bitcoin as a startup. But despite being declared dead many times by the mainstream media, Bitcoin grows stronger every year. What’s going on? It’s not too late to learn about Bitcoin and invest. Bitcoin’s value has grown exponentially over multiple booms and bust cycles spanning a decade. Bitcoin is an Internet-native phenomenon like Alibaba, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Microsoft, and Tencent. It, therefore, benefits from the “network effect” which makes it dramatically more valuable as the network grows. But its potential value is much larger than the giant Internet companies we know so well. If Bitcoin reaches that potential, its value could rise by 50 times its current price in the coming decade. This book will help you understand the role of money in our society, the current state of debt in our economy, and how Bitcoin provides a better solution.

The world of investing normally sees experts telling us the “right” way to manage our money. How often do these experts pull back the curtain and tell us how they invest their own money? Never. How I Invest My Money changes that. In this unprecedented collection, 25 financial experts share how they navigate markets with their own capital. In this honest rendering of how they invest, save, spend, give, and borrow, this group of portfolio managers, financial advisors, venture capitalists and other experts detail the “how” and the “why” of their investments. They share stories about their childhood, their families, the struggles they face and the aspirations they hold. Sometimes raw, always revealing, these stories detail the indelible relationship between our money and our values. Taken as a whole, these essays powerfully demonstrate that there is no single “right” way to save, spend, and invest. We see a kaleidoscope of perspectives on stocks, bonds, real assets, funds, charity, and other means of achieving the life one desires. With engaging illustrations throughout by Carl Richards, How I Invest My Money inspires readers to think creatively about their financial decisions and how money figures in the broader quest for a contented life.

The book starts with the often overlooked context of why and how we trade via a detailed introduction to market structure and quantitative microstructure models. The authors then present the necessary quantitative toolbox, including more advanced machine learning models needed to successfully operate in the field. They next discuss the subject of quantitative trading, alpha generation, active portfolio management and more recent topics like news and sentiment analytics. The last main topic of execution algorithms is covered in detail with emphasis on the state of the field and critical topics, including the elusive concept of market impact.

Authors: Wesley R. Gray, Jack R. Vogel

Category: General

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.

Leveraged Trading: A professional approach to trading FX, stocks on margin, CFDs, spread bets and futures for all tradersLeveraged Trading: A professional approach to trading FX, stocks on margin, CFDs, spread bets and futures for all traders:

Author: Robert Carver

Category: General

With the right broker, and just a few hundred dollars or pounds, anyone can become a leveraged trader. The products and tools needed are accessible to all: FX, a margin account, CFDs, spread-bets and futures.

But this level playing field comes with great risks. Trading with leverage is inherently dangerous. With leverage, losses and costs – the two great killers for traders – are magnified.

This does not mean leverage must be avoided altogether, but it does mean that it needs to be used safely. In Leveraged Trading, Robert Carver shows you how to do exactly that, by using a trading system. A trading system can be employed to tackle those twin dangers of serious losses and high costs.

The Art and Science of Technical Analysis: Market Structure, Price Action, and Trading StrategiesThe Art and Science of Technical Analysis: Market Structure, Price Action, and Trading Strategies:

Author: Adam Grimes

Category: General

A breakthrough trading book that provides powerful insights on profitable technical patterns and strategies The Art and Science of Technical Analysis is a groundbreaking work that bridges the gaps between the academic view of markets, technical analysis, and profitable trading. The book explores why randomness prevails in markets most, but not all, of the time and how technical analysis can be used to capture statistically validated patterns in certain types of market conditions. The belief of the book is that buying and selling pressure causes patterns in prices, but that these technical patterns are only effective in the presence of true buying/selling imbalance. The Art and Science of Technical Analysis is supported by extensive statistical analysis of the markets, which will debunk some tools and patterns such as Fibonacci analysis, and endorse other tools and trade setups. In addition, this reliable resource discusses trader psychology and trader learning curves based on the author’s extensive experience as a trader and trainer of traders.
