ARGO Traders LLP (Proprietary Equity Traders)

ARGO Traders specialize in Cash Equities trading.

With the advent of massive program trading in the futures markets and spread traders struggling to make their volume targets, we have seen a huge influx of interest back into cash equity trading. We are always interested to hear from experienced market professionals eager to start trading again in a truly dynamic market where fundamentals and technicals dictate the market direction and not the trader with the biggest limits. Traders are not limited by 1 or 2 instruments and instead have over 250 active stocks to choose from at any one time. To aid the transition from different markets we will closely monitor and train new traders to maximize their development and profitability.

We also run a very successful training program for ambitious individuals looking to forge a career in International Equities. The ARGO training program focuses on Equity trading using : Real time simulators, live market trading, constant mentoring and feedback, and classroom based tuition in fundamental & technical analysis. Trainees will need to be self-financing during this period and only the very best will be selected and backed by us on a full trading contract. Please refer to our website or contact us for more details

Futex offices in London, Sydney,Chicago, Singapore & one based in Woking Surrey (25 minutes from Waterloo) Futex was set up by traders who had been open-outcry trading on the LIFFE floor since 1990. In 1998 when the LIFFE floor was migrating onto computer screens Futex traders were one of the first to establish a professional computer based trading floor.

We have been backing traders since 1995 on the floor and since 1998 have backed and facilitated traders on computers. Futex is firmly committed to teaching graduates the skills required to become a successful trader. Futex has a wealth of experience from both it’s own traders and those companies that we are linked with. This knowledge has helped us create a professional high quality trading environment to compete with any other trading office. Futex currently concentrate on Futures and FX markets traded via LIFFE, Eurex, Euronext, CBOT, CME and the IPE.
