  1. Humans can look at a car or product and say "now that's one sexy car/product". And go on from there. And even if they hate it they can still hear a group of people rave about something. Read forums and do things like that. HFT is poison as it doesn't care about fundamentals but just patterns. Plus it's frontrunning and market manipulation. It shouldn't exist

  2. Citadel: Top quality revolving doors and pre-packaged government policies! Brings you the stocks you need, by buying them fractions of a second just before you do!

  3. Intelligenxe agrees with Ken Griffin that humans cannot be replaced by computers. Intelligenxe trusts that Citadel’s meritocratic dynamic of hiring the best people and its emphasis on having a competitive advantage would be remarkably complemented by adopting Intelligenxe’s unique hedge fund business model (OFIP). We invite Citadel to evaluate OFIP.

  4. I admire the fact that the standard they want to uphold is primary in decision making proceedings for applicants. As an individual who trades for a living it makes me reconsider the standards that I have set for myself.
