Hi, I'm Tucker Balch and
this is Computational Investing, Part I. This is the fourth module. In this module, we're gonna look
at what is a company worth? And the reason that's important
is that helps determine what ought the price of its stock be. Many ti
Hi again, I'm Tucker Balch, and
this is Computational Investing Part One. We're gonna continue talking about
the mechanics of the market. So when we left off last time,
we were talking about the order book. It's a little bit tricky, so I wanted to cover i
Hi there. Welcome to the last video in this module. I'm gonna talk now more
about hedge funds and the computing infrastructure
that they use. And this will form sort of the basis for
much of the rest of the class. We're not gonna be able to, in this class
Hi I'm Tucker Balch and
this is computational investing part one. For this video we're gonna
look at how to compute some of these values we had
talked about using Excel. So first we're gonna get some data,
load it into Excel and play with it a little bit
Hi, I'm Tucker Balch, and
this Computational Investing, Part I. We're continuing a discussion
of Mechanics of the Market. In this video,
I'm gonna talk a little bit about how hedge funds and other types of investment groups can take advantage of
some of t
[MUSIC] I'm Tucker Balch. We're here with Paul Jiganti
of TD Ameritrade. We've just been talking
about order flow and the fact that when a person makes
an order on their computer. It's tagged with a unique ID and from then on throughout the process
[MUSIC] I'm Tucker Balch. I'm here with thinkorswim by
TD Ameritrade with Paul Jiganti and we're talking about how orders
flow through the system. Now, we started with a trailing stop order
that eventually became a limit order. It's made its way to a mark
Hi I'm Tucker Balch and
this is Computational Investing, part one. This is our third module. And in this module we're gonna look
at the mechanics of the markets. We need to understand
this computationally, in order to think about how are we gonna
Hi I'm Tucker Balch and we're continuing
with computational investing part one. We're in a module where we're looking at
different ways to assess hedge funds and hedge fund performance. We're gonna devote this session
to learning about Sharpe Ratio, which

Due March 13
This is a programming assignment. You have to write 4 short programs. The specs for each of these
programs are given below. You will handin these programs electronically before the beginning of the class

Logic its subject is reasoning; it measures the value of
reasoning; whether something is correct; it is a set of rules
to draw inferences.

1. Basis step:
P ( 2 ) = 1 + 1 = 2 is irrational, so
p(2) is true.
