My algos are up 75% YTD. (Post Update)
In May I posted on this forum seeking advice on how to (that were up 57% at that time) to a Hedgefund. The algorithms recently closed near the 75% mark (74.8%) so I thought it would be time to update those interested on what I did with the advice I got in May.
The TLDR of the advice I got: Either start at a prop firm and work your way up with the algos or have a substantial track record with capital at scale (aka >$5M with 5-10yr track record).
The TLDR of selling to a HF: No chance.
Some people did private message me, mostly trolls, but some with useful ideas none of which has panned out (mostly befriending people with highlol)
I continued to work with the same prop firm that was restricting my capital until they promptly cut and ghosted their US staff because of legal issues.
So since then I've been running algos on my own capital, in between searching for prop jobs and my PhD Thesis.
My next steps is to start searching my family tree for a rich uncle lol
Any thoughts or comments are welcomed.
