The Trader Trainee Summer Internship Program at WH Trading LLC provides undergraduate students with exposure to the derivatives trading operations of our firm. During the internship students will spend time in both electronic and floor trading environments. Real time market experience is complemented by weekly classroom sessions covering a variety of topics about derivatives markets.
Electronic Trading Rotation
During this part of the internship, students are given the opportunity to gain real futures and options trading experience as they run one of WH Trading’s proprietary derivatives trading models. Under the supervision of a mentor, students are expected to learn the logic behind an existing trading model and make market decisions in a live trading environment. Interns may also conduct financial markets research in support of new strategy development.
Exchange Floor Trading Rotation
Interns will spend time in the Open Outcry trading environment. During this rotation, Trader Trainee Interns will spend most of their day supporting WH Trading’s operations on the CME exchange trading floor working closely with the firm’s options traders. Interns get an intimate understanding of how financial markets operate.
