I'm trying to gauge the interest in a Chicago prop FX operation. I'm looking to start an FX desk. Products offered would be spot, forwards, swaps, vanilla options, exotics and futures. All done in a cross margined haircut account. Our dealing desk at Fimat trades with 50 banks and makes very tight markets. I'm trying to determine if I should just do this with a few traders internally or open it up to a big operation 24 hours around the clock. This is not a recruiting thread as this desk is not operational as of yet and if and when it does get set up, I'll advertise it locally, not through ET. I just want to see if it's worth the energy and effort to do it. Maybe hear some of the pros and cons.
