"Build Effective Risk Management on Top of Your Trading Strategy" by Danielle Jiang, the Founder and CEO of Hedga Technology

Risk management is an essential but often overlooked prerequisite to success in trading. No one would like to see their substantial profits generated over his lifetime of trading just vanishing over a few bad trades.

In this talk, Danielle will discuss a quantitative understanding of risk. She will then share a few techniques in risk management, with a case study to show how a proper risk management system helps improve the overall performance of trading strategies.
