Thiago's 20-year journey started with working in some of the biggest banks in Brazil, moving on to work in the financial capital of the world, New York, and back home to Brazil to operate a hedge fund.
Even with all his experience and well-honed skill set, Thiago wants to push the boundaries and inculcate cutting-edge machine learning techniques into his trading and overcome the age-old problem of emotions affecting trading decisions.
Thiago shares his learning experience with us.
I am Thiago, from Brazil. After having completed my business degree from Brazil, I worked for some big banks in Brazil, before moving to New York, worked there for a while, then returned back to Brazil, to trade in the Brazilian markets through a local hedge fund. I have been working in the financial markets for the last 20 years.
I wanted to exclude the emotional side of trading and hence wanted to adopt a Quantitative and Systematic approach with thorough backtesting. I was interested to apply Machine learning concepts using my prior knowledge of Technical analysis and my strong background in Finance.
With this goal in mind, I took up the ‘Trading with Machine Learning: Regression’ courses on the Quantra platform. I really liked the course, the content was to the point, it was up to the mark. I am really looking forward to pursuing more courses on Quantra.
