  1. Anyone competing in the traders Olympiad this year? Last year they had some bots that did pretty well.

    I haven't seen many threads this year talking about it. Does no one know about the competition or just not many college kids on these forums anymore?

    Maybe I should have failed a class or two on purpose??

    I am unaware of the olympiad, when does it begin? I am switching to IB in January
  4. im doing it, CS is not my primary background though so I'm having a hard time getting started. I know Matlab but I'm having trouble getting the ActiveX to work and there's not many resources on it anyways.

    I'm registering. I am still a little confused as to whether we can use a program like OpenQuant or QuoteTracker to actually handle the logistics; and we only have to program the strategies themselves. Anyone know?
