comment What blogs or articles online should I read to get started with quantitative finance?
Sorry, I'm going to close this as "off topic"... This is intended to be a site for practicing quants, none of whom would ask a broad general question like this. It's important that when we come out of private beta, we have a REAL community of quants, and general, non-expert questions like this don't help. Later when the site is doing well it'll be fine to ask non-expert questions but for the private beta, please stick to real questions in quantitative finance, not surveys and polls.
