Pattern search identification of "unclassified"­ price trends with EidoSearch


This month’s meet-up will feature a presentation by David Kedmey, President and co-founder of EidoSearch, a Toronto based financial technology firm founded in 2009. David will provide an overview of EidoSearch's technology, and the newly discovered green field in “unclassified” price trends that pattern search technology is now able to deliver to the market. David will also validate the predictive nature of price trends, based on years of research and hundreds of millions of simulations, and he will briefly review how these concepts can be applied to a systematic trading strategy to generate excess returns (please see chart below).

He previously worked in the mergers and acquisitions group in the investment banking division at Oppenheimer & Co. in New York.

    Just noticed I was moved from the waitlist to attending yesterday. Thanks, Jess, but I won't make it this time -- travel time alone dictates it's not possible. Entirely my fault for not checking earlier.

    thanks for the talk. What is the backtester on GitHub you guys mentioned during the quantifiable intro? I see several projects up there, not sure which one I should look at.

    Many thanks to Jess Stauth and Quantopian's Fawce for arranging the event and to David Kedmey of EidoSearch for his presentation on the work they've done on pattern search identification and its predictive potential for price movements in financial markets. Fascinating and thought-provoking content, and I look forward to future events. (PS: thank you for the pizza and refreshments!)

    It was good to learn the existence of the Quantopian framework. Would love to explore more of the platform and see how realistic it simulate real time trading conditions.

    EidoSearch work is interesting. But for the presented systematic LS strategy, it was not clear if the smooth equity curve includes consideration of trading slippages at the assumed open price entry / exit.

    Practically, this can be an execution issue that can distort live strategy performance, esp if a portfolio size, and turnover frequency is significant.... Looking fwd to attending the next interesting mtg.

    EidoSearch looks very useful though it will be completely out of reach price-wise to non-institutional traders (no gripes, c'est la vie). It was a very good presentation. Fawce answered a lot of important Quantopian questions very thoroughly tonight I thought, too. Thanks to all.

    It would be a killer app if Quantopian could offer analytics like EidoSearch

    I would like the presentation recorded.

  • Nitin k.

    It would be great if this presentation is recorded. There are people who have last minute cancellation but really want to learn and benefit a lot from this....
    Also, would be great if slides can be put up... Pl. let us know….
