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 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.

Futex however are always looking for new opportunities and will soon look to offer trading facilities in Options and CFD's.

A sample of our flat rate commissions: Eurex - $0.48c Roundtrip LIFFE - £0.64p Roundtrip prices regardless of volume. Additional exchange credited liquidity provider rebates apply.

The Traders Clearing Alliance is a not for profit organization set up to allow traders the ability to trade at cost.

There are no shareholders, the Alliance is owned soley by its members.

The Alliance is essentially a clearing house offering its members the ability to have office facilities as with other clearers but all services are received at cost.

Financial Futures clearing is a volume business, based hugely on economies of scale. The more traders who join the alliance, the more business we give our principle clearer and the lower our costs become.

Well-known member
I think a large number on your list no longer exist, Atlas, Curvalue, Fortis (Now ABN but not taking local traders) Custom House,Futex, Onscreen, Pelican West, Shaolin Futures, Schneider Trading, Sigma (Now Broking only) and Trading Connections all have ceased trading. A number of the others may well have stopped as well.

Positive Equity are still going in Dublin, Xconnect Trading Ltd have recently moved to new offices in Moorgate and are still going and one you do not list is Tower and they have been going for a while.

Probably best to update!


Well-known member
I think the list would shrink to 6 or 7, most on the list have gone by the wayside.
Onscreen, Tower Trading (not even mentioned above) and Xconnect are still going.
Marex and Sigma have stopped offering position to Prop traders and now are exclusively Brokerage shops.
There are a few new outfits, but as I think you may have noted from the demise above, it is better to stick with those that have stayed the course.


Why class yourself as a pro trader and pay tax an a desk fee when you can sit at home and trade tax free


Well-known member
Because you cant, if you trading is your primary source of income it is taxable. Nobody in the UK can earn an income Tax free.


This used to be a highly useful list of trading arcades, but as @majikle and @Parky have pointed out, it badly. needs updating! I plan to update this list in the coming weeks. If you're aware of any trading firms not on this list, or wants to take an initial stab of listing out the now defunct firms, then be my guest! Otherwise expect an updated version shortly.


Well-known member
The below have ceased trading. Not sure about a few of the others:-

Atlas, Candlestick, Curvalue, Custom House, Fortis, Futex, Mint, Pelican West, Shaolin, Schneider, Traders Clearing Alliance, Trading Connections.

It seems many of them couldn't last very long! :unsure:


Well-known member
It seems many of them couldn't last very long! :unsure:
The list is ancient, in so far as when the list was updated in 2018 the dead wood that already existed was not removed. Algo's killed a great number of the Prop Shops and others just melted away. Some like Schnieder were taken over.


I do plan to update it some day!

It used to be a really handy list. There wasn't really anything out there at the time that pulled them altogether in one place, maybe there is now.
