Floor Traders

  1. I'm trying to get as much information on XTF Market Making LLC.

    I know they are a market making firm operating on the floor of the AMEX, but that's all i know. How can i determine if they are legit? (they are listed as a member firm in the AMEX directory site, but so is SLK - and obviously SLK is widely known)

    Any ideas? Anyone heard of them?
  2. There are more small firms in this business than anyone can count ...
  3. So how do i determine if this is worth pursuing?

    If it's SLK caliber for example?
  4. Since most MM are not hiring; what do you have to lose?
  5. is anything on the AMEX legit?

    Just half kidding.
  6. No.

    Not kidding at all ...
  7. very true ...

    i guess in a market like this, i really have nothing to lose. But in the world of proprietary trading, if WorldCo (for example) called me up, then I'd probably pass. I just wanted to gauge what i'm getting myself into.

    (for any WorldCo employees: this is only based on what i've been reading on this board and talking to some folks ... i have had no direct conversation with the company, so I could be full of it ... but i only report what i hear)
