striking a combination of matching deals that capitalize upon the imbalance, the profit being the difference between the market prices . When used by academics, an arbitrage is a transaction that involves no negative cash flow at any probabilistic or temporal state and a positive cash flow in at least one state; in simple terms, it is the possibility of a risk-free profit at zero cost. In principle and in academic use, an arbitrage is risk-free; in common use, as in statistical arbitrage , it may refer to expected profit, though losses may occur, and in practice, there are always risks in arbitrage, some minor (such as ...
Quantitative Trading [What, Whos, and Whys] | Trading Systems News
is the trading of securities based strictly on the buy/sell decisions of computer algorithms. The computer algorithms are designed and perhaps programmed by the traders themselves, based on the historical performance of the encoded strategy tested against historical financial data. Is quantitative trading just a fancy name for technical analysis, then? Granted, a strategy based on technical analysis can be part of a quantitative trading system if it can be fully encoded as computer programs. However, not all technical analysis can be regarded as quantitative trading. For example, certain chartist techniques such as “look for the ... market research, surveys and trends
Moe, Larry, Curly & Google's Quality Score Calculation | ReveNews
In this Article, Moe, Larry, & Curly will try to shed some light on the many different components affecting the Google AdWords Quality Score. As the Pay Per Click landscape becomes much more competitive, and the launch of Yahoo’s new Panama System, one of the most important things an advertiser has to take into account in maximizing performance is the Quality Score. Given that Google weights this factor so heavily that it can drastically alter a campaign’s profitability and that Yahoo is going to create a variation of the Quality Score (which I shall refer to as ‘Q’ score) it has become a very ... market research, surveys and trends

Pairs Trading (ETFs)
Due to the fact that I’m a big fan of statistical arbitrage (and trading it for a living), I thought it would be interesting to check if – and to what extend – there are pairs of ETF s (Exchange Traded Funds) which – as always based on historical data, statistical anomalies, regularities and irregularities, … – would provide a favorable and tradable edge maintaining a market neutral position. I personally prefer ETFs to individual stocks due to the fact that the latter are much more sensitive to unforeseeable events and/or outcomes like earnings, fundamentals, crew changes (CEO, CFO, …), rate disputes, strikes, take-overs, force ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
