Quantopian speaker Cheng Peng will be leading the presentation. We hope you can join us! Register today for free: About the Webinar: Financial markets are extremely complex, composed of several layers of reflexive activity behind the scenes. With the rise of alternative data sets and new quantitative methods in machine learning, research can become daunting with so much optionality when accompanied with an endless pool of testable ideas. To better navigate the research process, this webinar will propose a systematic framework to explain market anomalies that occur from the irrational behavior of market participants. Starting with a simple idea, we will walkthrough how to use this framework to develop an end-to-end trading strategy that reflect the opportunities in the behavioral gap. About the speaker: Cheng Peng is currently a Software Engineer at Betterment, the largest independent online financial advisor. Betterment manages more than $10 billion in assets for 280,000 customers. Prior to Betterment, Cheng worked across multiple industries (AIG, Blackberry, Textnow, Keyobi), as an Analyst, Software Engineer and Startup Founder.
