    Does anyone know of the Proprietary trading groups that deal with futures traders ? Thanks.

    I've been researching a company called Geneva Trading out of Chicago. They look like something I might be interested in the future. Check them out:


    Theres also a firm called jump trading or something like that which I heard is also reputable as far as futures firms go.

    Um, just a question. Why would you need a prop firm to trade futures, given the leverage available through retail brokers?

    Member commission rates, in house IT support, you trade company money not your own, just to name a few.

    Anyways, here are some additional firms that i can think of:

    International Trading Group
    Transmarket Group
    Gelber Group
    Breakwater Trading
    Gator Trading
    Kingstree Trading
    Marquette Partners
    Cheiron Trading
  6. Isn't it interesting that none of the larger prop firms are doing futures very much....Bright, Echo, Swift, Shoney, Assent, etc. ?
    Good reason: There's no money in it for them.

    Do any of these firms offer a mentorship/training program?
  8. Big Equity firms don't do future shops because they would get eaten alive and can not scalp their outragous rates off the newby trader.
