ashleysasportas started this thread hey guys. The job is great, really glad I got it. It's a position really suited to extremely analytical people who really enjoy and excel at gaming of some kind. Personally I'm a poker player amongst other card games, math degree etc.
although the test is important to find people with strong fast arithmetic under pressure it gives no indication as to whether you'll be a good trader, so don't put too much emphasis on it.
As for living in HK, it's great fun, with such small tax the wages go a long way.

I've got testing day coming up with Eclipse Options. Personally I haven't hear all that much about them, are they a legitimate shop and would you recommend them if your just coming out of uni? Or would an IB be a better career choice?

If anyone has experience regarding the interview, could they suggest some tips?

Let me share some information with you. If you have the ability to earn money, Eclipse option is the place where you can make money immediately. And these people are doing high frequency trading. the hottest topic these days. To me, the people in these trading firms are much smarter than those in investment banks.

I got an invite early last week. Mind you this is for a trainee trader role in Australia.

I just want to get a bit more of an understanding of the type of people working here...are they more looking for speed like Optiver or well-rounded ppl like SIG?

Cheers

Plot, Eclipse is a new MM and there is very little info about them. I would say well-rounded, for there is only one speed math test and that is, a priori, the only stage in the process at which they will scrutinize your numerical skills.

Good luck man ! Keep us updated.

Let's w8 & see. They are a small firm, it is entirely possible that they took care of the Australian position first, notably because test sessions are easier to organize. I would say that if we are to get an answer, we'll get it this week.

I'll tell u if I hear anything.
