Good for IEX getting accepted as an exchange! This removes Citadel as  a near US monopoly on HFT and market making.

Citadel KCG HFT hedge fund investigated

Citadel KCG HFT hedge fund investigated

The time has come

Small, day-trading investors make up the majority of the customers of mass-market brokerage firms such as TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab and E*Trade. These firms sell their stream of stock-trading orders to market makers such as Citadel and KCG.

This appears to be living proof these crap brokers are selling their order flow (of paying customers) to these firms to allow them to take advantage of your orders.

Quant math whizzes who conquered Wall St: Citadel

Hello , my name is Bryan Downing. I am here to entertain you on this email list. Please read this quote:

 

With him was Ken Griffin, who as an undergraduate trading convertible bonds out of his Harvard dorm room had outsmarted the Wall Street pros and made money in one of the worst bear markets of all time.  Now he was the tough-as-nails head of Citadel Investment Group, one of the most powerful money machines on earth.

 

When I heard about this dude who made $1.7 billion in personal salary in 2007, I knew I was in the wrong business. WTF would I need a job for? Today, I can formally report I make nothing close to this but…I can report that I am close. Oh wait…April fools was 12 days ago. Anyhow, read about these wonderful young men who were Math whizzes who ruled Wall Street.

 

This is from a book here.

 

If you don’t what the following means:

 

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

class x

{

 

Well, maybe it is time for a career change. Otherwise you will have a challenge if you decide to stick in trading in the long run. Are you part of that ‘sheeple’ movement?

 

Now we have this little LIVE demo tonite to showcase the future of trading via the largest programmatic stock trading broker (interactive Brokers) on the planet.

Only the most driven, innovative, tech-minded will attend.

Tech job study of Citadel Jump Tower Mana Bridgewater HFT hedge funds firms

Tech job study of RenTech HFT and Point72 hedge fund

I like doing these so hold onto your hat OK ? I have done may of these over the year but the technology does not change much once the infrastructure has been laid down. C++ and Python in Linux/UNIX is standard. Deal with it. OK?

I also like doing to see how the industry uses technology for their own infrastructure. This is the only way to get access outside of joining their firm even they would be interested.

I have done Citadel who are the largest https://quantlabs.net/blog/2015/10/hft-skills-for-citadel-technology/

Citadel HFT complains of speed bump from IEX

Citadel HFT shop complains of speed bump from IEX

This all comes from the Flash Boys book IEX

I find it bizarre Citadel is fighting this as they are also a clearing house for the CME (I believe). Is there an equivalent ‘monopolistic’ idea going on here?

 

From Bloomberg, Dec 1, 2015, 6:03:43 PM

Citadel LLC is stepping up its criticism of IEX Group Inc., arguing that the company’s plans to start an exchange that tries to level the playing field between firms with the fastest technology and other traders will actually hurt stock markets.
