SEC Establishes Quant Trading Analyst Program

Remember the story about the secretive Goldman trial over stealing quant trading code?  A programmer who knows how Goldman trades has huge value to competitors, especially if he brings his own code.

The Wall Street Journal reports that quant traders support using algorithms to identify "malevolent trading patterns."  You bet they do!  Where else will they hire such talent?

How about this on your resume:  Designed and implemented technology used by the SEC to identify illegal trading.
