As various investment strategies have been thoroughly researched and anaylsed, the findings led to automation of the investment process, in particular risk and portfolio management functions. Quantitative trading of a kind had been praticed ever since Munehisa Homma - a rice trader at Osaka exchange started drawing japanese candlestick charts in order to spot patterns in daily open, high, low and close values, with naked eye. Since then the field went through massive evolution that accelerated in recent years with development of advanced mathematics, made possible by vastly increased computing power. At the most advanced trading firms machine learning-aided algorithms comb through very large sets of data, create trades and execute them in the market using optimised (for speed) code and the fastest fiber or microwave connection.
