One of the premier trading firms in the world over the past decade has been Chopper Trading. Raj Fernando, a seasoned trader who was looking to branch out on his own, formed Chopper Trading in 2004. Raj Fernando started his career in the late 1990s when he worked at the Chicago Board of Trade and later the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. In these roles he gained a significant amount of market knowledge, a client base, and trading skills, which have helped him to make Chopper Trading very successful.
One of the ways that Chopper Trading differs from every other trading firm is that it has a different approach when it comes to hiring talent. Many trading firms end up focusing on getting people from the best schools and those that have the best grades or spent years working at other top firms. While education and experience are important option the firm, they are more concerned with building and maintaining a positive work environment. The firm is far more focused on ensuring that all of the personalities blend and that people can be friendly before, during, and after the trading day.
While the company is focused on hiring people that have financial backgrounds and experience trading, they also consider the technology aspect of their firm to be very important. The company has one of the largest technology department in the industry, which allows it to develop and implement the best trading platforms in the world. This gives the firm the ability to recognize patterns and review trading strategies faster than their competitors.
