  • (1888PressRelease) May 14, 2011 - Amplify Trading (, a proprietary trading company specialising in the development of new trading talent, today announced a partnership with a leading investment bank that will see them equip graduate employees with real experience of financial market trading.

    The training programme, designed by Amplify Trading, will offer the bank valuable insight into their graduate employees' psychology and risk management credentials, enabling them to place the right candidates in the right positions.

    The two-day programme will give trainees a true experience of trading in real-time conditions, putting them in high-pressure environments typical of a trading floor.

    In addition they will be taught the fundamental differences between proprietary trading and flow trading that will enable them to make decisions based on their understanding of current financial conditions and introduce them to the behaviour of currency and stock index futures, which will allow them to understand flows in live markets and permit them to execute trades on live prices.

    Commenting on today's announcement, William de Lucy, Managing Director at Amplify Trading said: "Amplify Trading is delighted to be working with such a prominent bank. The value that trainees can gain from putting economic theory into practise and from understanding and controlling the psychological effects of managing large financial risk in volatile markets cannot be underestimated. We are looking forward to equipping graduate employees with the practical experience they need to succeed in the financial markets".
