Sry, I'm new here. But I am just astonished by all those sick questions and answers you ask/provide... Are most of you studying mathematics or are your finance programs that good, that you can ask/answer such mathematical questions? Or did you learn those things after many years at work? I'm about to finish my master's program and I'm really afraid not to find a job because of people like you...
I'm inclined to downvote this question for not being relevant in particular to quantitative finance nor programming but I will give you the benefit of the doubt. I too am new to this community yet I can tell you that we are all deeply interested and passionate about the topic. Some of us are undergrad, some postgrads, some make their career out of this and others just do this for leisure. It's all about your attitude to your work and consulting help where necessary.
Yes I think most of us, at some point of time, studied a lot of math. Quant finance is pretty much very mathematical. Even the physicists or computer scientists I met at work are all pretty good with math. So yes if you are still in a master's program and if you find these quant finance questions intimidating then maybe it's helpful to do a couple more courses in Mathematics, at least Stochastic calculus. Just my 2 cents. More math will definitely help you down the pipe.
