A new developed strategy based on a curve model is live at another trading desk. I check if the setup is correct and if the model behaves correctly.
Since the model is in a deployment phase it is very important to monitor the behavior of the strategy until someone else can fully takeover.
I keep monitoring the strategy until 09 : 30.
09 : 30 - 12 : 00
Back at my own desk. I analyze last weeks data in Python while monitoring the behavior of the curve model on the site. Discuss the model with a fellow quant trader to see where we can improve.
