Speaking at the 2015 ATAA conference

I will be speaking at the 2015 Australian Technical Analysts Association on May 15 to 17, 2015. My topics are “The development of an S&P500 stock weekly rotation strategy” and “From Internet Article to Trading Strategy: An ETF Monthly Rotation Strategy.” For more information about the conference go here. I am excited to meet some of my readers at the conference.

I will have two free days to explore Sydney before the conference. If you have any suggestions on things to do and see (I will not have a car) or places to eat (from hole-in-the-wall to fancy) or hotel to stay at (want to stay in the heart of Sydney), put them in the comments.

On May 13th, I would like to get together with some of my Australian readers in Sydney. If you are interested in meeting either for dinner or drinks, please contact me. Depending on the size of the group it may just be drinks. Any suggestions on where to have the get together are appreciated. I plan to stay in the heart of Sydney but have not booked my hotel yet.

What is the must eat restaurant in the heart of Sydney? Put it in the comments below.

Good quant trading,

Hi Cesar,
Nice to hear your coming down under to visit the beautiful city of Sydney.

You mentioned in the centre of Sydney, there is a lot of hotels in this area, Radisson Blue Plaza Hotel is quite nice.

• Kingsleys Steak and Crabhouse Woolloomooloo Bay wharf

This restaurant is just east of the city about 5 to 10min in a taxi and located on a wharf on one of the many bays of Sydney harbour.

The Finger Wharf or Woolloomooloo Wharf is a wharf in Woolloomooloo Bay, Sydney, Australia. The structure is the longest timbered-piled wharf in the world,and was completed in 1915. During its working life for around 70 years it mainly handled the export of wool, but also acted as a staging point for troop deployment to the World Wars as well as a disembarking point for new migrants arriving in Australia. Notable residents include actor Russell Crowe.

• The Lobo Plantation

Things to do?
As you only have two days in Sydney here are some recommendations:

• Ferry trip to Manly: great views of the Sydney harbour Bridge, Opera House and the harbour in general, inexpensive, about 1 hour either way but you may want to stop off and have a look around, a camera is a must.

• Visit the Opera House

• Visit the Harbour Bridge or Bridge Climb if not too windy and if time permits.

• A walk through the ‘The Rocks’ this is the historical side of Sydney.

Other things to may take your fancy.

If you would like to catch up with people for a drink it’s hard to beat the Opera Bar with its views but its weather dependent and Friday its most popular night.

Next recommendation would be Tanks Stream Bar or Mrs Parmer and Co, Tanks Stream Bar is a pub and Mrs Parmer and Co is a bit more up market. The good thing about these two if you feel you would like to Dine with a few people after the drinks Wr. Wong is great place to eat and just around the corner, if you like to continue on I’ve listed some other nice places to get a drink.

Looks like you have all bases covered above!

For dinner, I would also recommend Mr Wongs. You cant go wrong for food, setting and atmosphere.

The other great spot is Rockpool Bar and Grill on Hunter street: This is the place if you like your red meat and wine.

Look forward to meeting up
