HFT Hedge Fund Tower Research Capital

Marco Monella

What course did you attend at Amplify Trading?

I was an intern in London between August to September 2014.

What were the main things you learned during your time with Amplify Trading?

Coming from an engineering background, with no finance related courses, during my internship I acquired strong pillars of how financial markets work and an overview of the two main ways of building a trading strategy: fundamental and technical analysis, other than the opportunity to try my own strategies in a real live trading environment.

What are you doing now?

At the moment I am working as software engineer in the Core Engineering team at Spire Europe ltd (European branch of Tower Research Capital), a high-frequency trading firm.

My daily routine involves supporting and developing tools as part of the infrastructure that sits between the traders and the financial markets.
