You must have a track record for the past 3 years of making at least $2m a year. The profiles we are looking for are as follows:- Mid-frequency quantitative trader- High frequency quantitative trader- Macro discretionary (intraday)- Equity discretionary (intraday not fundamental)- FX discrectionary (intraday)Your experience should be at a bank, hedge fund or proprietary trading house.

Agreed that "macro trading" and "intraday" seem incompatible. Perhaps it refers to someone trading around macroeconomic announcements?
