    I trade equities, but have been looking into FX. Seems like almost everyone trading FX, trades remotely... is this correct??? Are there FX offices? Does anyone know of any in Chicago? What would be the advantage to an FX office over trading from home?

    Just looking into a new market..

    There are quite a few in Chicago. Here is a general rule about Chicago as I am starting to see these types of questions on every thread. Chicago has everything in terms of trading. You want to trade stocks, options, futures, fx, swaps, forwards, exotics, metals, energy, you name it, Chicago has it. It's really not that hard to find these firms as most of them are members of the exchanges. Just trying to point you in the right direction here.
  3. No distractions at home. Distractions in the office. You can concentrate better at home. If you trade at home then you can trade NAKED!! You can't do that in the office. :D
  4. Yes!! I trade naked plenty of the time!

    Short options that is. The art of trading naked.

    Yes. most are retail traders from home. The FX offices I know in Chicago are all prop (profit split & training). Good office environments can be very helpful, as well as guidance from veteran traders.

    Update: I have found one retail forex office in chicago. I stumbled on it from a post on craigslist.
    If anyone knows anything about them... I would love to hear it!
