How to Build a Long-Short Equity Strategy Webinar on 9/17 at 12pm ET

Long-short equity strategies are an incredibly robust family of strategies. They depend on a methodology to rank equities, and perform proportionally to how well the ranking system differentiates high and low future returns. They avoid many forms of statistical bias and noise, and are an excellent way to make money off a model that predicts future returns for any given asset.

Join us for our webinar on Thursday, September 17th at 12pm ET and get an overview on the background and implementation of a long-short equity strategy on Quantopian.
