Hi all, I have a friend who is in a difficult situation and was wondering if anyone could provide some advice. First of all my friend is an option market maker trading on the floor of an major option exchange. My friend is not from this country(went to college in the US) and my friend's current firm is sponsering my friend's work visa. My friend has told me that in order to obtain a green card my friend must stay with current firm for 1.5 more years. My friend is a female and wants to (I think needs to) get another job but the difficulty of having another firm sponser her visa is a major roadblock. Right now most floor based option market making firms are facing hard times as it is and I dont think it is a good idea for her to continue to work on the floor of an exchange. What are here options? Does anyone have ideas about paths she should take to get out of here current positions and be able to stay in the country if she quits? Also, she is an above average trader, being able to hold her own making markets in a pit full of guys speaks alot of here skills as well i think. On the downside she cannot prove her "option trading skills" with a p&l sheet because her the entire group trades the same position - meaning all of the trades that they do, say in eurodollar options are all grouped together into one position. To top it off here boss who also owns part of the firm is one of the worst market makers yet trades the largest size in the entire pit lol. So even when she makes good trades that make money throughout the day her boss literally wipes them out on a consistent basis with idiotic trades. Any thoughts on this????
