Episode 5 of the Depth and Spread podcast is live! In this episode, we chat with Jordi Alexander, CIO of Selini Capital. We dive into Jordi’s background in chess and poker, and how that led him to high-frequency trading, first in traditional markets, now also in crypto. We also discuss his approach to discretionary vs. systematic trading, his philosophy on sharing ideas, in contrast to most HFT firms, and designing a good exchange as dYdX moves towards full decentralization in V4. We hope you enjoy one of our most interesting discussions yet!
