I recently spoke with someone from a prop group in Chicago who helped answer some questions I had about the propriety trading industry, however, he wasn't able to answer one of the biggest questions I have: where might I find information on small trading groups? I would like to work with a tight network of traders in a small trading group -- somewhere I feel part of a team, where strategy is talked about openly among the group. I believe this would be an excellent learning environment for a "newcomer" like myself. I have been trying to find information about these groups with little luck through the Internet as well as word of mouth. I've found that the kind of group I described is extremely difficult to find. Does anyone know of a group like this that might interest me and are looking for someone? Any advice as to where I could look for a small group? Anything would be greatly appreciated. I will be graduating in the Spring of 2007 with a degree in Finance Honors from DePaul University in Chicago. I have worked on the floor for 8 summers in the Grains and Dow at the CBOT, as well as in NASDAQ futures at the CME. I am a hard worker and am fascinated by the financial markets. I am well trained on CQG and do not shy away from further developing my understanding of technical analysis. I am looking to get involved with a group where I can learn and develop relationships that will provide an excellent platform when I eventually start my career upon graduation. I would like to start in the summer.
