Starting chemical companies, building sports betting algorithms, and deploying quantitative trading techniques.

Back in September 2022, I decided to start the transition to smarter, more in-depth pieces that would solely be featured on The Quant’s Playbook. It’s been an exhilarating journey and I’d like to go over some of the most interesting experiments and opportunities covered thus far:

My Sports Betting Algorithm Is Finally Ready

In this post, we set out on making money by accurately predicting the outcomes of MLB games. We identified some errors that initially got in the way of profitability, but we developed some creative solutions and got the algorithm ready for real-world deployment!

Arbitraging The Silicon Valley Banking Crisis

The banking crisis of Silicon Valley has been scary, but in this post, we turned that fear into opportunity. Through a creative, multi-asset arbitrage structure, we were able to put on a market-neutral option position to deliver real-world, verified profits.

I Needed Money, So I Started A Chemical Trading Company

In this post, we ventured off the trading/coding path, and into the exciting world of startup chemical companies. We went over the entire process from creating the business model and sourcing the chemicals, to managing logistics and analyzing profits.

This has been one of my favorite posts. It goes into the weeds of how complex operations can all be managed from 1 screen, thousands of miles away.

If any of these stories piqued your interest, you can find them posted weekly over at The Quant’s Playbook!

I hope to see you there! 🙂
