- Operational set up and infrastructure of Derwent
- Trade generation
- The “Michael Jackson” Test: Is the Twitter hedge fund an automated black box?
- Risk Management
- Will large scale analysis of social media be part of quant trading and investing from now on?
- Who is invested in the Twitter hedge fund?
- Capacity, Target return
