comment How to design a custom equity backtester?
For the stop loss issue, you should assume the worst case scenario. Ideally you should not work at a resolution where the stop loss would be so close that it would be a common occurrence that the order would matter.

comment What is “Flow Interest Rates”?
It probably had a different meaning at that time, and with the surge in exotics, they had to differentiate both streams.

comment Relationship in Order Book between S&P500 and S&P500 Futures Contracts
@jessica: I think the explanation is that you can make a forward by buying the spot and borrowing the money necessary to buy it until future delivery. Therefore if it deviates from this implied price, people will just try to take advantage of this relationship and this is what keeps the price in line.

comment Difference between Ibovespa full and mini futures contract
@Randomblue: I am not sure what you mean, the values from the table (0.2 and 1) are the 'value of each point' in your formula. This is what is changing between the contracts.

comment Best tool to generate cashflow diagrams
It does not, I just gave the steps to use it with LyX, will edit to clarify. I put the steps for $LyX$ because I know many people who are not familiar with working directly with $\LaTeX$ files.

comment compute FX forward from broker's data
@cf16: literally go on Reuters, or on their webpage, if you do not have Reuters EIKON. Look at EURUSD, you will see a quote like 1.3060. This means that the pips have to be divided by 10000 because (by convention) they are added to the last digits of the FX quote ...

comment compute FX forward from broker's data
To know what divisor you need to use, the easiest is to look at the # of digits in the FX spot on Reuters, the pips will be added to the same precision.

comment Why do ATM call options have a delta of slightly bigger than 0.5 and not 0.5 exactly?
Did you compute the delta numerically or did you use a close form solution ? Can you provide the details of your computation. Did you try to compute your delta with $r=0$ ? Is it simply because of the discounting on the strike ?

comment When does delta hedging result in more risk?
In this example, what the interviewer mean is that in this case, you increased the range of possible PnL values and you added a few more extreme values on the distribution of PnL. It is important, as a marketmaker, that you have an idea about what is your potential maximum loss and in this case, your hedge increase the poetntial loss in the tail event.

comment Generate tick data from candlestick
@Femto Trader: if you had a curve that you sampled at a 10 minute interval, you could assume that the curve is made of straight lines between points for linear interpolation for example but this is simply an assumption. Others warned you to not use this for analysis you may find spurious results which are wrong and dependent of your interpolation method.
