Risk-Constrained Portfolio Optimization

Once you have a model that is predicting returns, and you’ve determined that these returns are novel alpha and not just common risk, the next step is constructing a portfolio. In any investment process, you want to optimize your returns given some risk budget/tolerances. We’ll use Quantopian's risk model to measure estimated risk exposures of given portfolios, and then show you how to construct an optimal portfolio that obeys given risk tolerances.

This is cool. I look forward to daily factor values per symbol for all the common factors, especially short term reversals.
