Comparison of Portfolio Optimisation Techniques - Monte Carlo vs SLSQP vs Bayesian
Given a basket of assets, how would you allocation your capital across the different assets to maximize returns and minimize risk? This problem can be seen as a classic optimisation problem in data science.

What I learn from building a HFT bot processing >$10 million a month.
December 2017. That was the month I built a High-Frequency Trading (HFT) bot for arbitrage trading.

Since I've paid my tuition dues, I might as well share my lessons with the ones who would like to embark on the pilgrimage.
