You can't help it.

Chinese and Russian Quants dominate the space.  I will bet that there are LOTS of them.  Just check out the balcony from the youtube video.

No, it's different.  A question Nazi is like your wife pestering the living shit out of you when you're trying to watch a Yankees or Bears game.

Latour is under Tower Research Capital (great name if you think about it) owned by Mark Gorton...former electrical engineer with Martin Marietta/Lockheed...and surprise, Credit Suisse....now why would brokerages need EE's? especially those involved in supercomputer designs.....fuck this is a damn movie if I ever saw one.
