Today morning I ended up spending an hour or so browsing through some quant-finance related blogs. Not surprisingly most of them were dealing with active trading strategies rather than pricing derivatives. There are a lot of lone warriors out there who after 8-10 hours of drudgery (often in a non finance related field) go home to tend to their own small portfolio.
As often mentioned in comments etc. the modern quant does more than just pricing. Perhaps an even larger number does alpha-research or portfolio management.
Seeing how we (hopefully) have the know-how do you think private-trades could benefit from this site ? (this is more of a meta-type question. But again I post it here until awareness of met is high enough. I am also aware that it is opinion based.)
I am asking this bcause we mostly get general pricing questions on how to implement certain models etc. Wouldn't question concernings the mecahnics of certain porfolio management and trading strategies be nice for a change ? (Also in the light of the fact that there are as many quants doing fund mangement etc. as there pricing derivatives)
Perhaps I am just naive (as is often the case)
