In 2013 TradingPlaces introduced the DCM BlueLake Quant Comp- our first advanced Quantitative Trading Competition offered exclusively to Honours and Masters students from the fields of Mathematics, Statistics, Computer Science and Engineering. Due to its success in 2013, we are excited to reoffer this challenge in 2014!
This challenging new Competition gives students with an aptitude for analytics and programming the opportunity to apply their skills in a real-world application. Participants are provided with an official data source to analyse and construct a quantitative trading model, utilising various statistical techniques and presenting their work in a final report.
The top 3 submissions will be rewarded generous cash prizes and the possibility of working in this field!
Stay tuned for Competition updates, remember participation is FREE!
