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.
