Let's form a group,
meet and chat,
help each other on everything about HFT:

(1) sharing educational resources
(2) discussing backtest challenges and solutions in HFT
(3) discussing order execution and fighting latency, etc.

I sure want to get chances to meet other traders in NYC. Love to learn
but might not have much to share

Okay, thanks for your reply.
Here is the message I want to convey:
This is probably not a pure social group (yeah, it's a good idea to hang out with fellow traders for drinks, but that's probably another thread).
This is more of a "study-group" type - a group of highly motivated people who want to discuss and help each other about HFT.
Given the nature of HFT, it's probably more oriented towards IT people. We will discuss technical solutions to challenging problems in HFT, etc.

I stumbled upon such ideas before. all from US guys.. they create groups of losers trying to make them work to organise and exploit . some kind of polite slavery with elements of brainwashing.

is it like new masonry or post-apocaliptic scientology? krishna cult for traders perhaps. or it just the reflextion of modern liberalism through the greedy middle class eyes?
