  1. Bella, do you think there is more or less HFT action during these low-vol holiday sessions? I seem to see less in some stocks and more in others.

  3. Tao,

    Excellent observation. I see much less HFT because of the low volume.
    Happy Holidays!

  5. Bella, Enjoyed the article. you guys may want to sign these petitions and check out this site. http://www.defendtrading.com/
    An easy way to see HFT activity in liquid stocks is to set your price ticker to show 4 decimal places rather than the standard 2 most are usually defaulted to display. You will see the sub penny prints and a new world will appear. Bella I emailed you firm about trading with you guys and have not received a response. Would you please have someone contact me. Thanks Jason

  7. Jason,

    If you want to send me a resume to consider you have to send it to [email protected]. We get so many emails that I do not decide who gets an interview or not. But if you reach out to me personally I can at least make sure your resume and history is reviewed again.
    Best of luck with your search.
