Backtesting talk, and other events

I will speak November 2 at the Thalesians on “Effective Backtesting”.  Registration is now open.

Abstract: Backtesting builds a bridge from the past to the future. These bridges are shaky and unstable. We’ll explore the ways they are likely to fall down. We’ll also show how random portfolios can strengthen the bridges.
