Financial markets professionals today must sort, analyze, and act upon incredible amounts of data. This has led to increasing reliance on computer-based risk management models. Limitations in popular software packages for financial modeling system development, however, can threaten the viability of any system—not to mention the firm using that system. Modeling Financial Markets takes traders and money managers beyond those limitations by helping them design more consistent, sophisticated, and versatile modeling methods. This high-level, hands-on book features: • Guidelines for maneuvering around the Visual Basic.NET integrated development environment (IDE) and customizing it to improve your development efficiency • Dozens of innovative and useful techniques for financial modeling in code that minimize or avoid current software deficiencies • An approach for delivering an evaluation and specification prototype in Excel, one that is scalable into either VB.NET or another implementation language The need for complex yet usable financial modeling systems has never been greater. Let Modeling Financial Markets help you progress beyond static modeling programs to more sophisticated system development processes, then implement those processes in your actual trading methodology.
