Stocktoberfest - Investing for Profit and Joy

10/27/14 | 8:00 AM | $399 | Coronado, CA

StockTwits is hosting their the 3rd Annual Stocktoberfest Conference in beautiful Coronado, California on October 27th and 28th. We invite you to join ValueStream Labs, StockTwits, leading investors, entrepreneurs, money managers, analysts and trendsetters in the FinTech community for 2 full days of talks, panels, fireside chats, demos, networking, dinners, drinks and and lots of fun.

Why you care:

If you love stocks and markets and talking about them all day long – Stocktoberfest will always be for you. There will be 20 Breakout sessions over the course of two days on everything from starting a paid newsletter, to using social media to starting a hedge fund and how to read a chart and use a mobile brokerage and set up your desk and daily routines of the best minds in the business. The best voices from our community will be sharing strategies and ideas and brainstorming on how to make money as a trader and investor.

As always, we dive deep into huge trends in progress – this year we will dig into the theme of ‘Silicon Valley Eating Wall Street’. Is it for real? Is it hype? Is Bloomberg untouchable? Who are the disruptors and from the founders themselves, what does the next 5 years look like from both Wall Street and Silicon Valley and in Between. We will take a Deep dive into Crowdfunding and Angel Investing with amazing startups – Angel List, Our Crowd and Crowdability.

We will continue to have the most talented and interesting financial thinkers, money managers, traders and family offices talking about stocks and markets and their ideas, picks, routines, products and systems that they use and are thinking about for 2015 and beyond.

As always the days will be mixed with great entrepreneuers and investors that don’t necessarily think about stocks and markets, but are changing the industries and markets they attack, and will offer valuable insight that you won’t get from traditional media or market sites and newsletters. My favorite big ideas come from talking to the founders and executives of disruptive technology startups who are not thinking month to month or quarter to quarter results.

MarketTech 2014: Game of Smarts

10/15/14 | 12:00 PM | $395.00 (50% off with code: ValueStreamVIP) | Grand Hyatt New York

A changing of the guard is under way. A single, overarching capital markets megatrend into which all others lead. Make your priority lists, but the prevailing themes all lead here. Cloud, managed services, Big Data, solid state storage, security, Hadoop and other open source developments, standards, social media – you name it; all of these themes play a role in helping the trading community become smarter. At MarketTech 2014, industry leaders, visionaries and futurists will focus on some of the more provocative components of this capital markets megatrend: From Faster to Smarter.

Why you care:

12 pm – 1 pm – Registration & Networking

1 pm – Opening Remarks – Changing of the Guard – From Faster to Smarter, Paul Rowady, Principal, Director of Data and Analytics Research, TABB Group

1:15 pm – 2 pm – Birth of Crowdsourcing
Social media platforms and techniques will have as profound an impact on institutions as they’ve had on our personal lives. Crowdsourced opinions as a precursor to sentiment analytics, community curated and maintained datasets, and peer-to-peer financing represent significant game-changers for capital markets participants, particularly traditional intermediaries. This panel will discuss the opportunities and threats in financial markets from direct interactions with crowd-based technologies.
Speakers:
Adam Devine, VP, Product Marketing & Stategic Partnerships, WorkFusion
Scott Jordan, Founder, HealthiosXchange
Greg Neufeld, Managing Founding Partner,ValueStream Labs
Kim Wales, CEO, Wales Capital
Moderated by: Paul Rowady, Principal, Director of Data and Analytics Research, TABB Group

2:45 pm – 3:15 pm – Networking Break

3:15 pm – 4 pm – Life of Operational Alpha
Global markets are being re-architected on the backs of regulatory mandates, disruptive technologies, demands for harvesting more intelligence from bigger data, and the general need to achieve better performance at lower costs. Right-sizing and upgrading operational models, strategies and infrastructure will require more innovation than in any previous era in capital markets. In short, there is alpha to be uncovered in your business model. In the first of two panels discussing the evolution from legacy to next-generation technologies, solutions and methods, this discussion will focus on the benefits of technical unification and collaboration.

4:30 pm – 5:15 pm – Death of Legacy
Is it possible to “future-proof” your technical infrastructure? Maybe not. But minimizing, phasing out or eliminating legacy infrastructure is critical for achieving improved accuracy, timeliness and adaptability of analytics – a critical requirement in today’s markets. Once trading firms and their intermediaries wake up to the value of archived data for current analytical needs, improved technical architecture concepts will rise in the pantheon of priorities. In the second of our panels focused on infrastructure, our experts will discuss strategies and technologies that will help reduce the drag of outdated tools and the intangible costs of technical fragmentation.
Speakers:
Jack Bloch, Head of Development Trading and Dispatch, Unify Inc.
Edwin Marcial, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE)

12 pm – 1 pm – Registration & Networking
1 pm – Opening Remarks – Will Rhode, Principal, Director of Fixed Income, TABB Group
1:15 pm – 2 pm – Corporate Bonds
Venue consolidation and the threat of tapering are shaping the corporate bond market. Electronic trading and new agency business models are on the rise as dealer inventories remain challenged. The ability of the buy side to find natural pools of liquidity will become paramount as the market enters a volatile period and undergoes workflow change.
Speakers:
James Wallin, Senior Vice President – Fixed Income, AllianceBernstein L.P.
Mark Hepsworth, President, Pricing & Reference Data, Interactive Data
Amar Kuchinad, Founder & CEO, Electronifie Inc.

While large or illiquid trades still are best done on the phone, a large proportion of Treasury trading is now electronic.

A liquidity squeeze, whether driven by the end of QE or a dearth of collateral, could leave traditional traders at a disadvantage.

11/19/13 | 12:00 PM | $395 | Grand Hyatt New York - 109 E 42nd St, New York, NY ‎

Technology is a critical pillar for the reinvention of the capital markets. In combination with shifts in employee skill sets and process re-engineering, new weapons of mass disruption will need to be broadly employed to right-size business models, augment capabilities, and harvest ever-more fleeting and complex opportunities. Providing market participants with the power to distill meaning, collaborate with greater ease, and ultimately make better decisions from an increasingly expansive and diverse sea of data will quickly become a necessity.

At MarketTech 2013, industry leaders and visionaries will focus on three key themes that will be central to this transformation: solid state storage, open standards, and cross-asset functionality.
