Update 1: new technology infrastructure in 2021 allows Chicago Quantum to provide better solutions to our stock picking problem
This year has seen a significant investment in our technology infrastructure.
In Q1 2021, we replaced our iMac 2013 with an iMAC Pro 2017. This gives us significantly more processing power and graphics capability to do our daily work (administrative, marketing and finance), as well as easily and efficiently run our smaller stock picking jobs.
In Q2, we purchased an upgrade to max the RAM of our HP server (server 1) which was purchased in 2013. This server is becoming insufficient to run our larger analytical jobs, as we have added more stocks, new steps in data validation (including new proprietary solvers), and new analytics we perform on stocks. It just runs a little too slow.
In Q2 we purchased a new Dell server, along with significant upgrades that are being received and installed this week. This server is significantly faster and more capable than Server 1. As an example, the CPU was first released in 2019, has a 22% faster base clockspeed, and this system has 4x the RAM, and runs ~80% faster, than server 1. This new server made its debut on April 10, 2021, and has already provided a better (deeper) solution from our production run this past weekend.
We are currently in discussions with market data services providers (early stage - new bidders welcome) to purchase data feeds on stock and potentially other financial instruments.
We are also considering whether to expand the payroll...so stay tuned.
