    Is anybody still alive out there?

    I think I was last here in 2013. I'm still trading and doing bonds, spreading etc. Significantly expanded from pure Aussie related stuff days.

    I am on EliteTrader and my posts have a lot of content.. edge if you will (username s0mmi)

    Only for the dedicated and those who want to hunt for gold of course!

    I'm still in Sydney and I don't stay awake for 24-72 hrs anymore :) This heart can only take so much ... so I spend the majority of weekends doing 12-15 hour research blocks to stay ahead in the game.

    If anyone is curious I'm in every major country Bond around the world. The SFE opened the floodgates to allowing algorithms + overseas investors to clog the Aussie 3yr + Aussie 10yr bond and Bids/offers are significantly thicker than when I started

    If anyone has any questions I am glad to help. :)

    You're in prop, you tell us :D How are guys handling these market conditions, especially this year? Are there many discretionary guys killing it, if so are they spreaders or directional, or are guys turning to making their own algos?

    Thanks in advance :xyxthumbs

    You see 3yr going half tick in Dec because of this?

    Do you do anything in the short end offshore Eurodollars, SS, BAB & Bors? Spread em against each other/TED spreads etc or you just long end?
