Hey, thanks for the replies. I went for the interview (Jr Quant Trader in Amsterdam) but didn't get the job. Ah well, first interview since graduation, so kinda expected.Learnt a couple of things from the interviewer tho - The quant trader sits between the quant research and traders, so on one hand is in touch with the quant researchers (who tries to systematise things) and the traders (who have close contact with the markets). Thought the setup is pretty cool (at least in theory), so now I can at least try to replicate it with some friends with economics and trading background. I suppose key point is that I don't have to do everything by myself, and the trading system doesn't have to be 100% systematic.
