Hundreds of quant papers/libraries from #QuantLinkADay

20171223 Quant Link A Day


I tweet a lot, perhaps too much. The question is always what shall I tweet about? Sometimes it’s about burgers, other times it’ll be some puns or there might even be some vastly impressive observation in a tweet I make (well, perhaps not, but we can always hope!). Over the past 2 years, to give me a bit more discipline about trying to tweet quant finance, which is after all my chosen career, I’ve been tweeting #QuantLinkADay. I’m hoping to continue this tradition in 2018 too. Whatever folks say, no one comes up with trading strategies in a vacuum, we all get ideas from other people, whether it’s from academic papers, conferences, your colleagues etc. – so I hope that at least something I’ve tweeted this year (or this blog) has triggered a new idea!


Typically, this involves tweeting papers which look particularly interesting. I try to focus on newer papers which have been published. Generally the papers are skewed towards FX, given that’s where my focus has been much of my career. However, I do try to also include more general economics papers and from other related areas. Ideally, I’d like to read every paper I post, but have to admit given the sheer quantity of links I post, this is somewhat difficult. I do however, read the abstracts at the very least (yes, I’m sure there’s some way of machine learning to automate this process of picking the appropriate papers, but then I’m not exactly going to be doing much for my “human” learning, which is another reason I spend time doing this stuff). There’s also a large number of other links, related to code libraries, particularly in Python, which I think are worth a look if you are a quant.


Below, I’ve collected all the #QuantLinkADay papers/libraries from 2017 to make it easier to browse, which I hope you’ll find useful. If you’re interested in the list from 2016, which contains a further 300 papers/quant links, click here! Hopefully, this proves to be an early Christmas for all the quants out there! I wish you a very merry Christmas and best of luck for 2018!
