I love the interviewer’s faces. It’s like he keeps saying, “I’m such a pussy in his head.” Lol.

Her fund closed down by the way. “Analytical” trading is bullshit and most of the “analysts” or quants on Wall Street are con-artists full of shit. There are a few good people there but most of them do nothing that has any social value.
She probably traded commodity derivatives thinking she was a genius, until commodity prices went to shit.
If Wall Street was closed down tomorrow, we wouldn’t even notice the difference, in fact, life would be better because Wall Street only grows its wealth money at the cost of society.

I’m not surprised her fund closed. Short term inflated investors always say arrogant shit like “true causation not just merely correlation”. Leave the modelling to academics holding Phds in statistics and meteorology. You want to constantly make money? Open a brokerage firm, permit high leverage, match orders internally, allow customers to trade derivatives, with fixed spreads during certain time periods, your business should be able to generate enough profit off spread alone. Stay away from prediction if you haven’t studied high level statistics.

This is all bullshit, these people don’t create anything, it’s just tricks the top 1% use to screw over the rest of the population.
