comment Application of Control Theory in Quantitative Finance
Most firms make the difference between the "operator" (trader, portfolio manager), the "engineer" (the "quant" who designs the models) and the "IT" (who takes care of the implementation). You have to look after "quant" positions, or "quantitative analyst", or "financial engineer" (sometimes they are called "structurers" in some derivatives small teams) @markroche

comment What is the current lowest possible latency for TCP communication?
Not all the layers I listed, then. Only from TCP out to TCP in. Yes you could probably do better, @PeterMel , but I do not know what latency you should take as a benchmark for this today, sorry.

comment The use of GARCH
@MattWolf it would be great to read something like: the ARIMA on the returns will provide you this feature [biblio] but you have remaining heteroskedasticity on the residuals, use a GARCH to capture it [biblio again]. By the way, are you sure that if you generate your data by GARCH+ARIMA the parameters estimated that way will be unbiased ;{)} ?

comment Portfolio optimised for diversification and regular yield. How to hedge?
Please be more accurate in your question. You cannot just say "look at this external page", you should summarize properly the framework to expect answers.

comment Is “eoddata” a good data source?
welcome @Ales, and thank you for the question. Nevertheless it could be great if you could rewrite it around "what is the best way to detect spikes", or something similar.

As usual with Gaussianity; since you have in mind Gaussian processes, yes: correlations=0 is equivalent to independence.
