Quantopian Live Webinar on August 6th: "You Don't Know How Wrong You Are - Part 2"

You’ve constructed a model and are getting significant p-values. Everything looks good, but then your algorithm starts losing money. Sometimes the way a model is constructed can lead to a complete breakdown in the statistics used to evaluate them. Join us on August 6th at 12pm EDT for this live webinar, and learn more about the warning signs to watch out for.

This talk is part of the Quantopian’s Summer Lecture Series. We will release a clone-able notebook and algorithm to go along with this lecture shortly.

To join us, RSVP here.
