The Complete Guide to Capital Markets for Quantitative Professionals is a comprehensive resource for readers with a background in science and technology who want to transfer their skills to the financial industry. It is written in a clear, conversational style and requires no prior knowledge of either finance or financial analytics. The book begins by discussing the operation of the financial industry and the business models of different types of Wall Street firms, as well as the job roles those with technical backgrounds can fill in those firms. Then it describes the mechanics of how these firms make money trading the main financial markets (focusing on fixed income, but also covering equity, options and derivatives markets), and highlights the ways in which quantitative professionals can participate in this money-making process. The second half focuses on the main areas of Wall Street technology and explains how financial models and systems are created, implemented, and used in real life. This is one of the few books that offers a review of relevant literature and Internet resources.

Es war im Jahre 1983, als der bekannte Futures Spekulant Richard Dennis mit seinem langjährigen Freund William (Bill) Eckhardt eine andauernde Diskussion über den Ursprung der Fähigkeit erfolgreichen Tradings führte. Dabei ging es um die grundlegende Frage, ob die Fähigkeit fü;r erfolgreiches Trading Naturgegeben ist oder ob dies das Resultat eines erfolgreichen Lernprozesses sei. Richard Dennis war der Überzeugung, dass es möglich sein sollte, Leute so zu unterrichten, dass diese erfolgreiche Trader werden können. Bill dagegen glaubte, dass die Fähigkeiten für erfolgreiches Trading durch die Genetik festgelegt sein und auf Begabung beruhe. Eine Wette sollte die Entscheidung bringen. Im Wallstreet Journal und im Barron ́s wurden Anzeigen geschaltet. Auf diese Annoncen meldeten sich über 1000 Probanden aus denen nur 80 zu persönlichen Gesprächen vorgeladen wurden. Letztendlich wurden nur zehn Personen ausgewählt, die in die "Geheimnisse" des Tradens eingeführt wurden. Dafür mussten sie sich verpflichten zwanzig Jahre Stillschweigen zu bewaren. Einer von ihnen war der 19 jährige Curtis Faith. Er veröffentlicht nun im FinanzBuch Verlag mit "Die Strategien der Turtle Trader" das erste Buch, welches die Legenden und Gerüchte um diese spektakuläre Geschichte entmystifizieren soll. "Die Strategien der Turtle Trader" deckt das gesamte Experiment auf und erklärt genau was ihnen gelehrt wurde und wie sie tradeten. Es gibt die Details zu einigen ihrer größten Trades und zu den Regeln, die hinter dem Timing standen, preis. So liefert es dem Leser einen Eindruck davon, welche Fähigkeiten und welches Wissen nötig sind, um Millionen in den internationalen Finanzmärkten zu verdienen.
