Hi everyone, I hope you’re doing well. Once again, welcome to the Chat With Traders podcast.
I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Xiao Qiao at Quantcon in New York City this year. He’s a research analyst focused on trading commodity futures for a Connecticut-based hedge fund.
Before this point, he finished a PhD in Finance and was renowned economist Eugene Fama’s teaching assistant. He’s also worked directly with Blair Hull, the trading legend on two quantitative research projects. Specifically, ones that concern return predictability and market timing. If you’re interested, white papers for both of these are linked up in the show notes at chatwithtraders.com/153.
Xiao and I mainly talk about is what you need to learn when it comes to how a research analyst thinks about stuff directly related to research. Also, the ways that traders can do better market research.
Not only that, but based on Xiao’s experience, he shares a number of tips for traders who really want to pursue studies but unsure of what they want to do. He also mention differences he’s seen between working as a practitioner and the world of academia.
Let’s get to today’s episode with Xiao Qiao.
