An advertisement forwarded to me today:
Large fund is looking to add systematic traders to their very successful team. Systematic trading strategies in commodity futures (oil, Euroollar, FX, etc), government bond futures. Market neutral style – NOT seeking someone with directional strategies (e.g. trend following).
Trend following? No! We prefer someone who has that special LTCM flair.
Note: Just noticed that my firm is responsible for Wikipedia’s image source for LTCM.
