Next week I'm going to talk to a member of the CBOT about being a clerk for him on the trading floor. If he hires me, after a while he'll give me a chance to trade. What are the requirements for being a clerk and/or trader on the trading floor? I thought I saw something about having to pass a hand signal test on the CME's website but that's all I really know. Some places say I have to get fingerprinted and a background investigation. Really? A friend of mine trades electroniclly for a prop firm at the CBOT and he didn't have to do anything other than a credit check. Thanks for any info.
