      Hi S0mmi, what are you thought on Star Beta? Are they legit? or should I apply for Propex instead?

      Hi s0mmi, I've read a few of your posts on propex and a few on aliom before they merged with epoch to become genesis prop trading; I was wondering what your thoughts on genesis were and if you would recommend either propex or genesis for me? (I was successful in both my applications to their trainee program, just not sure on which to side with).

      Hi
      I am a prop trader for the last 10 years in the UK but I am looking for new spreads - do you still trade the BUND v OAT ? How do you find it? I have been trading it for a couple of months
      Cheers

        Sorry for the 1.5 year reply

        Bund vs. OAT I do not recommend because their underlying fundamentals come from political risk divergence, but all relate to the same Euribor interest rate pricing.

        If you have access to some exotic interest rate data (like bloomberg or the CQG alternative price feeds) then we can work something. You would need the different yields for France and Germany using hte same coupon rate

        I strongly advise to stick to same-country curves. Europe is a piece of shit and the whole contintent is basically f*cked. Do not play around cross-country stuff there

        Stick to germany, stick to the UK, theyre fine :)

        P.S. The reason why I say dont touch italy and france and the rest of the pieces of sh*t is because their spreads go from 10 tick ranges to 200+ tick blowouts. We're talking like 10-20 sigma events out of nowhere, for NO REASON. Theyre all dodgy institutional pieces of sh*t as Bonds

      Hi S0mmi,

      I read your 'top 3 guys' thread from last year. Was an interesting read. You mentioned your were in Aus. What firm are you at? In time, I'm looking to get backing for some models I've developed but I really only know of Propex. Do you have any names of prop houses or systematic funds about the place?

      My testing has been over ASX 100, makes on average 25%pa, average trade time is around 4 days. The reason I mention this is that my understanding of places like Propex is that they only want to churn intraday and wouldn't post the margin for overnight trades. Particularly for cash equities. Thoughts on this also?

      Cheers,

        I'm still at Propex. As a prop firm, they look for people who are profitable with their trades. They don't just want churn-and-burners everyday as that model seems to be dying to HFTs and algorithms. I would advise you have a go because there is an equity division team. However, you want to make the most of your size that you can do, and make at least 6 figures a year.
