The Trading internship is a 10 week summer program that provides exposure to the financial markets through classroom instruction, individual and group projects and shadowing opportunities. At the end of the internship, you will become comfortable with the basic theory and practice of trading options.
Our trading interns work in teams, learning from experienced traders. Interns will follow market activity and participate in mock trading to better understand risk, portfolio balancing, and how market views are formulated. There is regular communication with Traders on various special projects.
At Spot, our interns benefit from exposure to a real trading desk and experienced traders. Throughout the internship, Spot hosts a variety of social and educational activities to foster collaboration while introducing the interns to Chicago and our industry.
It is extremely fast-paced with new challenges facing us each day. We provide a team-focused environment where our employees learn from and support each other.
We are looking for juniors with a passion for the financial markets. Qualities such as sound quantitative skills and a highly competitive nature provide a distinct advantage. A background in computer science is increasingly an advantage in this industry.
