Another fine example of bad HFT shops

I got this response via email:

To correct you…ITG is headquartered in NYC…not the netherlands.

My mistake, I got this confused with IMC: https://quantlabs.net/blog/2015/07/imc-hft-shop-hires-ubs-dark-pool-exec/

My apologies there.

I am disappointed with the use of the term “friggin cheaters”. Perhaps read more about what ITG does as a business before making comments like this. While I understand your writing style (I have been reading you for a number of years)‎, it’s unfortunate that you choose to dramatize this way.

I don’t believe this will be the last SEC settlement  in the industry nor will ITG’s settlement remain the largest for long.

Being fined should be taken seriously. Any employee of a firm who thinks it is ok to be fined by a trading regular comes a from a world of arrogance. Not putting you in this camp but seriously, your firm got busted for a misdeed. A big fine of $20M. That to me is the same as cheating! That is why banking and hedge funds are the #1 hated industry according to public opinion.

You need to be reminded you also work in a multi million dollar or even multi billion dollar fund making oodles of money while us schmucks fight for the crumbs trying to make a living on scraps.

As said, HFT is a good technology but hated upon because cheaters use this  for their own gain at the expense of others esp. retail trader.

Have a good day sir…

Facebook IPO results could result in how Venture Cap/Private Equity determines future of startups

Facebook IPO results could result in how Venture Cap/Private Equity determines future of startups. With the results of last year web startup IPO party, it looks dismal as most are trading below their IPO debut. Also, soon to be wealthy FB talent will leave to start their own ventures.

We project higher valuations than traditional PE asset-sale due to operational efficiencies from tech platform and shared services

SEC orders Hedge Funds and Private Equity to open their books. Prop shops last bastion of hope for quants?

SEC orders Hedge Funds and Private Equity to open their books. Prop shops last bastion of hope for quants?

he Securities and Exchange Commission voted 4-1 Friday to subject many hedge funds and private-equity funds to new scrutiny, including surprise inspections. Hedge-fund managers with assets over $100 million would be required to register with the agency under this proposal.
The new rule, which is expected to be finalized before July 2011, is authorized under the recent Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation. “The enhanced information,” SEC Chairwoman Mary Schapiro said, “will better enable regulators and the investing public to assess the risk profile of an investment adviser and its funds.”

Lisa Swan, a former senior new media editor at the New York Daily News, is a columnist for The Faster Times and a blogger for Subway Squawkers. Her work has also appeared in Yahoo Sports, Huffington Post, Heater Magazine, and the upcoming book Graphical Player 2011.
