Four months ago, I, like many of my fellow college students, was finishing up midterm exams and looking forward to a relaxing week off for spring break. Yet in a matter of weeks, even days, the reality of COVID-19 and the overwhelming impact it was about to have on our country became increasingly apparent. I left for spring break thinking I’d be back on campus in ten days. Instead, over the course of that week, we were informed classes would be moved entirely online for the remainder of the semester. Students living in on-campus housing needed to move out as soon as possible, and seniors were left with glaring question marks about graduation and commencement ceremonies.

A former floor trader and interbank foreign exchange trader, Kit Lowe is a mainstay in the Sydney trading community. He began his career on the money market desk at Natwest Sydney in the late 1980s, trading the bank’s asset and liability book. There he gained insights on the financial market plumbing, which still hold him in good stead today. Later he ran the bank’s forward FX book before moving to the trading floor as an interest rate trader. More recently, he was a portfolio manager at 70 Capital, and he is now a proprietary trader at Genesis Trading in Sydney. Kit has been using Trading Technologies platforms for nearly 15 years, so it was nice to get his view on the evolution of electronic trading tools. Kit has a nice following on Twitter, so you can catch him there at @kit_lowe.

I personally look forward to learning more about Binance US and the Binance Credit Card offering. Check out what Josh had to say to my 5 Qs!
