Описание: Beware of geeks bearing formulas.
--Warren Buffett
In March of 2006, the worlds richest men sipped champagne in an opulent New York hotel. They were preparing to compete in a poker tournament with million-dollar stakes, but those numbers meant nothing to them. They were accustomed to risking billions.
At the card table that night was Peter Muller, an eccentric, whip-smart whiz kid whod studied theoretical mathematics at Princeton and now managed a fabulously successful hedge fund called PDT...when he wasnt playing his keyboard for morning commuters on the New York subway. With him was Ken Griffin, who as an undergraduate trading convertible bonds out of his Harvard dorm room had outsmarted the Wall Street pros and made money in one of the worst bear markets of all time. Now he was the tough-as-nails head of Citadel Investment Group, one of the most powerful money machines on earth. There too were Cliff Asness, the sharp-tongued, mercurial founder of the hedge fund AQR, a man as famous for his computer-smashing rages as for his brilliance, and Boaz Weinstein, chess life-master and king of the credit default swap, who while juggling $30 billion worth of positions for Deutsche Bank found time for frequent visits to Las Vegas with the famed MIT card-counting team.
On that night in 2006, these four men and their cohorts were the new kings of Wall Street. Muller, Griffin, Asness, and Weinstein were among the best and brightest of a new breed, the quants. Over the prior twenty years, this species of math whiz --technocrats who make billions not with gut calls or fundamental analysis but with formulas and high-speed computers-- had usurped the testosterone-fueled, kill-or-be-killed risk-takers whod long been the alpha males the worlds largest casino. The quants believed that a dizzying, indecipherable-to-mere-mortals cocktail of differential calculus, quantum physics, and advanced geometry held the key to reaping riches from the financial markets. And they helped create a digitized money-trading machine that could shift billions around the globe with the click of a mouse.
Few realized that night, though, that in creating this unprecedented machine, men like Muller, Griffin, Asness and Weinstein had sowed the seeds for historys greatest financial disaster.
Drawing on unprecedented access to these four number-crunching titans, The Quants tells the inside story of what they thought and felt in the days and weeks when they helplessly watched much of their net worth vaporize - and wondered just how their mind-bending formulas and genius-level IQs had led them so wrong, so fast. Had their years of success been dumb luck, fools gold, a good run that could come to an end on any given day? What if The Truth they sought -- the secret of the markets -- wasnt knowable? Worse, what if there wasnt any Truth?
In The Quants, Scott Patterson tells the story not just of these men, but of Jim Simons, the reclusive founder of the most successful hedge fund in history; Aaron Brown, the quant who used his math skills to humiliate Wall Streets old guard at their trademark game of Liars Poker, and years later found himself with a front-row seat to the rapid emergence of mortgage-backed securities; and gadflies and dissenters such as Paul Wilmott, Nassim Taleb, and Benoit Mandelbrot.
With the immediacy of todays NASDAQ close and the timeless power of a Greek tragedy, The Quants is at once a masterpiece of explanatory journalism, a gripping tale of ambition and hubris...and an ominous warning about Wall Streets future.

Описание: Over the last twenty years, a species of math whizzes known as 'quants' has usurped the testosterone-fueled, kill-or-be-killed risk-takers who've long been the alpha males of the world's largest casino. The quants believe that a dizzying, indecipherable-to-mere-mortals cocktail of differential calculus, quantum physics, and advanced geometry holds the key to reaping riches from the financial markets. They took over Wall Street with their formulas...and helped create a digitized money-trading machine that could shift billions around the globe with the click of a mouse.

Описание: How a Small Band of Maths Wizards Took Over Wall Street and Nearly Destroyed It. The story actually begins in the 1950s when a successful gambler named Ed Thorp decided that skills learned at the Vegas gambling tables could be applied equally successfully to the financial markets. He soon acquired followers and imitators and over the next few decades they assumed positions of ever-greater power and influence. Eccentric, brilliant, often larger than life, they achieved extraordinary success and massive wealth. `The Quants` follows them from boom to bust, explaining why they were so self-confident, and why they got it so disastrously wrong.

Описание: A news-breaking account of the global stock market's subterranean battles, Dark Pools portrays the rise of the "bots"--artificially intelligent systems that execute trades in milliseconds and use the cover of darkness to out-maneuver the humans who've created them.

In the beginning was Josh Levine, an idealistic programming genius who dreamed of wresting control of the market from the big exchanges that, again and again, gave the giant institutions an advantage over the little guy. Levine created a computerized trading hub named Island where small traders swapped stocks, and over time his invention morphed into a global electronic stock market that sent trillions in capital through a vast jungle of fiber-optic cables.

By then, the market that Levine had sought to fix had turned upside down, birthing secretive exchanges called dark pools and a new species of trading machines that could think, and that seemed, ominously, to be slipping the control of their human masters.

Dark Pools is the fascinating story of how global markets have been hijacked by trading robots--many so self-directed that humans can't predict what they'll do next.

Описание: Tells the story of the group of whizzkids who applied their computer programming genius to the invention of robot versions of Warren Buffett. As they did so, they created a radically new trading system in which machines trade anonymously with other machines, making and losing fortunes in the blink of an eye.
