Yearning for Learning?

Dr. Brett over at Traderfeed made a great comment last year that should resonate with thoughtful traders. He said,"If you're the smartest person in your group, then you're in the wrong group." For traders trying to adapt to market dynamics this is sage advice. And for those willing to put in the time to expand their knowledge here's a link to free MIT courses in a variety of subjects and with a variety of complexity. This is easy peasey learning, trader buddies . . no grades, no weekend beer parties and no time pressure. You want to delve into probability theory and algorithm construction? Dig right in. I've circled a few courses in the Mathematics Dept. that might be useful to anyone seeking to explore the world of quants. I love the first item . . 18.098 .
