Inserting a definite article sounds more grammatically precise in French, so I slightly prefer  
Simon's version. Also, it has a more symmetrical rhythm (3 words + 3 words). However, including 
"the" in English (though not technically incorrect) is not very colloquial, so the translation would be better as 
"all sequences, ..." or "every sequence, ..."

if I may, I would rather say : toutes les suites, tout de suite,

  translating to 'all the sequences, right now' ,

  Best regards,
ps : this is my humble opinion,
ps2 : I like the fist too.
