September 1st 2022

There is an interesting Cornell financial engineering conference coming up. ArXiv Quant papers of note include Learning Financial Networks with High-frequency Trade Data (link) and Asset Allocation: From Markowitz to Deep Reinforcement Learning (link).
The top general ML section graphed-based time series forecasting (GSA-Forecaster) might be interesting. An SSRN paper highlights an interesting ovenight EU to US drift phenomena and two old SRRN papers on short squeezes and activist investing has popped up again. (Note if you publish on SSRN make sure to publish under the C JEL tag for your paper to be picked up).
GitHub found a Differential Machine Learning repo that implements a paper featured on Risk.net paper, it also picked up a probabilistic gradient boosting model NGboost by Stanford researchers that I am quite fond of. Salesforce released a time series library DeepTIMe implemente in Pytorch.
There are some good volatility trading podcasts by Hari Krishnan and Harel Jacobson, and a high finance podcast with Bill Browder (probably read the book first). And on Linkedin Shannon created the Kelly criterion not Thorp, and C++ will be used for the next 5000-10000 years.
I am happy to say that since the last linkletter the readership have grown to over 3k readers per month, and the website sees over 9k visitors per month.
