Re: Science Saturday: Avoiding Catastrophic Boredom
Regarding using evolving models to exploit tiny market inefficiencies, you fail to mention the well known hedge fund Renaissance Technologies (RN) run by James Simons that uses this exact method of beating the market. RN is probably the most successful hedge fund ever, making several billions for Mr. Simons. By the way, not everyone can do this. Mr. Simons was a highly accomplished mathematician before starting his hedge fund and employs many math and physics PhDs from top universities to develop new quantitative techniques for beating the market.
