Optiver launches The Brain Circuit quiz – Time to flex your grey matter.

We’re always excited by the opportunity to solve problems others may find too difficult. In the spirit of this, we’ve developed a wonderfully challenging online quiz designed to test anyone who thinks they have serious numerical abilities.

The level of complexity in the quiz is just a taste of what our traders, engineers and research teams  face every single day. It incorporates something else that can mean the difference between success and failure – time pressure. Here’s where the separation between good and great starts to become very evident. Taking in all available information and making the correct decision is the difference between being a frontrunner and playing catch up with the market.

You get 4 chances to complete the quiz and post a competitive score. You’ll also be able to share your score and challenge your friends or colleagues to try and beat it. Along with the bragging rights of being at the top of the leaderboard, there are also great prizes up for grabs every two weeks.

Will your mind overheat or overcome? There’s only one way to find out.

Click here to play The Brain Circuit.

Good luck!
