Is Telx at 350 E Cermak good quant colocation for CME? Anyone know?

Someone posted this in Lnkedin:

Sub 5 microsecond trading system set up ready to trade. Looking for trading strategy partners

I have a fully certified, ready to go trading system with co-located CME access at 350 E Cermak. The system features extreme low latency (sub 5 microsecond quote-to-trade).

I also built full set of research tools. Including historical tick-by-tick viewer, online (realtime) and offline (historical) simulator. The simulator features compensation for quote transmission time variance and time difference between local machine time and quote time in order to give extremely realistic simulation result (if you know what I’m talking about).

Looking to partner with people who have trading ideas. It usually takes less than 1 week to test the strategy and implement it to production.

QuantLib, QuickFIX, and colocation picks for top algo auto trading systems

Here is a conversation on reddit.com which pretty well inspired me tostart thinking about blending my knowledge of technology and financial investment. This was pretty inspiring where an indie software engineer launched his own business. He is now clearing

Do you colocate next to the real servers so you can do that flash stuff?

I do colocate near my brokers, but no, I don’t have anything to do with flash orders.

Does that have to do with abusing ping times to snap up trades other brokers have put orders in for?

Do you have any finance/trading experience? I think one of the best introductory books is: Trading and Exchanges

On the technical side, you can check out one of the many open source projects and go from there. If you’ll be more specific on what you want to learn and what you want to do, I could elaborate.

Any points to a few of those? By links I don’t necessarily mean URL, a few names for googling would suffice, if the names are not too generic.

Is there a reason your software doesn’t use or derive from one of these? Are they crappy mass-market type solutions that aren’t worth anything to someone who really makes money here or is it just because your thing works and you don’t see a need to switch?

I use QuickFix and have used QuantLib. I had already created most of my infrastructure before MarketCetera came out and ActiveQuant wasn’t up to my requirements.

I honestly haven’t had good experiences with the prepackaged software. Usually I end up spending more time hacking it to what I want it to do than implementing the strategy itself.

i have a respectable grasp of econ concepts, but ive never traded with money. i understand the terms that have been mentioned in this thread, but ive never applied them. i suppose what i need to know is how your process works — concerning work, what goes on between the time you wake up and the time you make your first trade of the day.
