Hello everyone (first post so here goes!).
I've been interested in the financial markets for awhile and as a more math type person I have been looking intousing quantitative methods. I am familiar with technical analysis and charting techniques, but I am looking to go beyond that. Based on what I've read, people are able to forecast the movement of securities by using modern physics or some "high level math" (such as stochastic calculus and probability theory).
My question is where would be the best place to start learning about how to apply these subjects in the market. I'm interested in seeing how stocks move beyond just observing stochastic oscillators and using the Fibonacci sequence. Any advice? And also, what financial instruments seem to be the target? I know stocks are a given, but do people really model the movement of prices for say currencies?
Thank you in advance for your time and effort, any help is appreciated!
