I’ve looked around for working at High Frequency Trading places in Los Angeles but haven’t found any. Are there simply none in the area or are they more well hidden?

    Lol high frequency needs speed. There are 0 exchanges close to LA so you are introducing unnecessary distance and latency to operate there

      You only need to colocate the server itself. The people could be based out of anywhere.

      Ok sure you can say the same thing about silicon valley and all the tech companies here. The companies are largely in NYC and chicago, as that's where the talent and exchanges have been

      Yes I know most of the jobs are in Chicago and NY. I currently work at a HFT firm in a location you wouldn’t expect to find any and I know there are at least a couple other firms in town. I’m moving to LA and was hoping I might be pleasantly surprised to continue my line of work there
