"Brown continued: "The point is that, if there were signals that made a lot of sense that were very strong, they would have long ago been traded out. ... What we do is look for lots and lots, and we have, I don't know, like 90 Ph.D.s in math and physics, who just sit there looking for these signals all day long. We have 10,000 processors in there that are constantly grinding away looking for signals."""

found this old video clip on HFT, I remembered it from years ago as it had the punchline re; staff on the trading floor - 'no, they're just here to answer the phones.' 😆

    • Is this the right place to leave feedback to the tech team? to others in the community, do you know what I am talking about?
    • I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way. I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month. Is this correct? The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case. In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter? Thanks
