Meet the quant investor and developer of the market avalanche detector

I recently stumbled onto two unknown investment books, by an unknown author, which I am sure you will also find interesting.

The first one is called Quantitative Investing: Strategies to exploit stock market anomalies for all investors.
The second one is The Lazy Fundamental Analyst: Applying quantitative techniques to fundamental stock analysis.

Both were written by the unknown (at least to me) author called Fred Piard.

Behaviour can be modelled but not predicted

I really liked the following extract from his bio:
As a software architect he knows that the things that work the best in the long term are the simplest.
As a consultant he experienced the real economy through various sectors: energy, banking, healthcare, manufacturing and public administration.
And he learned from marketing that human group behaviour can sometimes be modelled, but never predicted.
 “

Fred’s books are on my list

fred_piardI have not read Fred’s books yet but they are on my reading list, at the moment I am still working my way through another book you may like called Algorithms To Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions.
