Here Efrem Hoffman, CEO and Founder of Running Alpha put an actionable voice on:

(1) Smart Beta 3.0 — Active Vs. Passive — “Alternative Trends with Benefits”; and

(2) “ The New Physics of Perception Arbitrage – why wait for Information to arrive if you can create it?”

This novel Alpha Source I invented, called Perception Arbitrage is powered by Running Alpha’s CrowdPhysics Intelligence Engine; and based on first principles: A Quantum Decision-Making Logic Code based on Unbreakable Relationships among Human and Machine Perceptions. This Actionable Market Research framework is will disrupt both Technical and Behavioral Driven Feedback Strategies.

I was also invited to debate on a panel of industry experts regarding the Trump Factor, and Unintended Economic and Sentiment-based Consequences of Policy Choices and Trump’s fat fingered penchant for Twitter.

Here is an e-Mail recently sent out by the Chicago Trading Show Admin:

If you have trouble viewing this email, read the online version

Donald Trump has dominated the news cycle since announcing his historic run for president in July of 2015. In just his first month in the Oval Office, the Dow has soared to historic heights as bullish investors lap up the new president’s business-friendly agenda designed to loosen regulations and send corporate profits skyrocketing.

Is this a vote of confidence in Trump’s economic dispensation? Or is the recent “Trump Bump” more akin to a brief moment of irrational excitement?

REGISTER NOW >>

At this May’s Trading Show Chicago, experts from Running Alpha Investments, Typhon Capital Management, BMO Wealth Management and Titan Regulation will dissect and debate the state of play in financial markets under the new Trump administration.

Book now for this exclusive opportunity to learn about:

Trump, Twitter & market health – measuring the relationship between Trump’s Twitter sentiment, the overall market mood, and the short and longer-range price and volatility impact on companies, currencies and nations
Presidential tweet risk – what unintended consequences might emerge as a result of Trump’s penchant for Twitter?
Trump tracking algorithms – will it be a viable strategy to develop algorithms designed to take advantage of short-term price discrepancies caused by a presidential tweet?
Trump, regulations & economic growth – how would Trump’s repeal of Dodd-Frank and proposed rollback of regulations impact U.S. economic growth?
Foreign policy – how will Trump’s proposed isolationist policies impact U.S. markets and the global economy?
This is just one of many exciting sessions taking place at this year’s Trading Show Chicago.

I look forward to seeing you in Chicago!

FYI: Here are some additional items to be discussed at the Round-Tables I will be moderating:

Beathing New Life into Information and Perception Arbitrage — Why wait for Information to arrive if you can create it — Redefining the Information Age with Self-Generating & Organic Information Sources:

Is the Information in the Message or embedded in the Multi-Fractal and Relational Perception biases of both Human and Machine Decision-Making Frameworks

Topic would include a discussion of how we can Extend the Shelf Life of Alpha Creation with new sources of Intelligent Computing & Quantum Gaming Practices —

— From Leveraging Multi-Fractal Time-Arbitrage to Exploiting Information Mirages that are natural byproducts of constraints we have unintentionally imposed on Human-Decision-Making & Machine Perception of Legacy & Alternative Information Sources

Where is the Alpha?
Are inefficiencies going to close as broader access to alternative information sets, low-latency communication, smart algorithms, and asset allocation strategies get commoditized?
Or will new insights and applications in Machine Perception, Feature Extraction, and Prescriptive Data Analytics open up new ground in understanding the dynamics of Market Structure Ecology and Regime Switching States for: Extending the Half-Life of Alpha Creation from both Time-Based and Human-Decision-Making & Machine Perception Arbitrage.
Where is the future of Intelligent Algos Headed? — toward those that are incorporating the three-way disconnect and reflexive interaction among: (1) systematic measurement errors and perception biases ( introduced by human and machine decision-makers ); (2) price formation; and (3) the stylized fundamental factors that they both shape and are supposed to faithfully reflect.
Any of Efrem’s industry colleagues who qualify as end users (work for a quant/hedge fund, trading firm, asset manager, pension, family office, investment bank) are entitled to FREE full-access VIP passes.

There are a limited number of complimentary passes available, and they will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

FinTech Finalist, Running Alpha Launching DarkSight Technology for Capital Market Trend Intelligence

by efrem on May 5 at 7:56 pm EST | Tags: , , , ,

badge
Benzinga FinTech Finalist, Running Alpha, is launching Capital Market Trends next week, a premium alpha idea discovery platform for showcasing highly scalable and actionable investment and trading opportunities —

Powered by a unique and proprietary Sentiment-Aware mathematical physics framework that has a multi-decade history of extracting trading opportunities at the forefront of tomorrow’s most impactful and influential price trends and volatility events —

events that have over 95% expectation of sustaining bullish or bearish price persistence over multi-time-line intervals.

Running Alpha employs its proprietary DarkSight Technology to reveal the minimum length of the risk-on and risk-off opportunity intervals. So unlike even today’s most advanced sentiment intelligence solution providers, Running Alpha goes beyond pigeon-holing opportunities into fixed holding period or time frames.

Markets are dynamic, and just because a statistical backtest showed that a specific time frame had a more favorable performance curve, does not mean that the groups of highly interacting decision-makers and their forward-looking versions, that are relevant to market dynamics today and tomorrow respectively, are the same ones that history has favored.

Part IV: Live Today as a Guest on Benzinga Radio — PreMarket PREP — Talking About 2016’s Highest-Impact Country ETFs / Sectors / Equities that will Surge Next — A Major Emerging Market Recovery is In Play

BenzingaPreMarketPREPWithRunningAlphaEfremHoffman

This morning Running Alpha’s CEO & Founder was invited back as a special guest for a second time since January on BenZinga Live Radio PreMarket PREP. Click Here for a recorded copy of this Morning’s 9:15 AM EDT audio session on SoundCloud. The recording is also available on iTunes and Stitcher.

In case you did not have access to the live commentary post on Benzinga live chat, you can find it consolidated with the unabridged market update below; serving as the founder’s overall macro-view of market opportunities. As a bonus, a dash of actionable stock and ETF-specific investment ideas are sprinkled throughout.

The talk starts off with the host revisiting Efrem Hoffman’s previous commentary on Jan. 8th, mentioning Running Alpha’s correct high conviction, time-relevant market call, which laid out the case for an imminent recovery ( when just about everyone from market professionals to retail investors were in a state of panic and anger ) from the prolonged period of global market risk events leading into the New Year.  Among a special line up of three seasoned guests, Efrem ads a sentiment analytics flavor to the three other independent guest conversation sessions with the host, which included: a general discussion on the December’s jobs number released today; followed by a talk to Ron Insana, Michael Corcelli, Efrem Hoffman, and Mohamed El-Erian — focusing on what these numbers and market action were telling them about the economy going forward.

Part I: Discover the Sectors and High-Impact Equities that will Surge Next — A Major Emerging Market Recovery is Imminent

by efrem on March 14 at 5:39 pm EST | Tags: , , ,

There are some interesting powerful bullish sector rotation signatures showing up in the Emerging Market Indices ( Compelling opportunities exists, especially if any intra/inter-day dips, because hereon, and especially so toward end of month and after first week of April, any inter/intra-day selling pressure, if it were to occur, will likely be met with heavy bidding of increasing size );

and

Healthcare space — which bear close watching from as early as now and starting prior to the end of March — pointing to an imminent window of exceptional positive growth as we advance from here into the summer — a series of bullish events in this space should start entering the market and take both institutional market-players and retail decision-makers by surprise, causes a significant short squeeze in many equities.
