    I am interested in joining a prop trade desk in the Philadelphia region.

    If someone knows of an active office with a good trading environment in the region I would like to know.

    Thanks. Elwood

    Only big shop I know of is SIG. Group1 says they have an office on their website, but that office is really just a mailbox and a single chair at the PHLX. If you find out something, let me know.
     
  3. there is a wts office there. if you are interested in equities the rates and platform are good (platform is very cheap). The customer service is horrid though so I would recommend them if you are good at self-troubleshooting

    Thanks. I checked out the Philly office but it was basically HFT and no one said much unless it was a complaint about losing or the system sucking. I appreciate the info.

    I checked out the Philly office and felt it was a bit drone like / HFT guys.

    I will attempt to contact them and see what type of environment they have there.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    My understanding is that it is a WTS office.
