    Does anyone know of a good resource for info on chicago based prop firms? Or would anyone in here care to share their thoughts about the best/worst/newest/oldest/etc. in chicago?

    I am not currently in the trading profession but am very interested in finding a 'trainee' position at a prop firm trading anything. I'm not sure how this might affect anyone's thoughts re. chicago & the above, but FWIW.

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

    Not meany left in chicago or around anywhere. Spike, Holdsbrothers, and maby one more.

    But if ur trading already why a prop shop? And the word prop shop no longer means "they provide capital". Many firms have a min. capital requirement.

    I would read about WorldCo before putting up money in a shop.

    Well.... you can go apply for Wolverine, Geneva, and etc... I'm not sure if there training. Most firms from what I know aren't training. I've heard GHCO trains traders. I'm not sure.
  4. Refco Trading Services will train novices and professionals alike in the art of trading futures electronically. The website is The future is now...
