Description

Kershner Trading and SMB Capital are excited to offer a new and unique opportunity for new and developing traders to be a part of our Proprietary Trader Training Program.

We are offering a comprehensive training program for new intraday equities traders and a clear career path. We have created an extended training program to create a clear career path for new traders from entry level trader to Senior Multi-product Trader. New traders will train with dedicated teachers and experienced intraday traders recognized throughout our industry.

What is your career path?  New traders will spend two years training and trading, developing essential trading skills and building a trading playbook that makes the most sense to them. New traders will also be expected to build competence in quantative trading, starting with simple alerting scripts in python and moving onward to fully-fledged models for diverse trading environments. Then the best traders after two years will have the opportunity to further their training and trade a bigger book. During this next career phase, traders will trade with more size and further develop their technical analysis, risk management, and quant skills. All traders benefit from coaching and mentorship from the firm's partners, senior traders, and from access to Dr. Brett Steenbarger, a renown trading performance coach who partners with our firm. Our top traders are experts in their unique market niches and are generally multi-product traders, supplementing equities trading with asset classes like equity options, futures, and forex.

This is a unique opportunity for those with a passion for trading to receive training from and then trade with experienced pro traders.  This training program was developed by Mike Bellafiore, author of the "trading classic" One Good Trade.  SMB has been recognized for its outstanding training, and has been invited to train proprietary traders at other desks throughout the world. The partners in this world-class training program are widely sought out by financial and news media outlets for their expertise. Participating partners and senior traders have appeared on CNBC, CNNMoney, and StockTwitsTV, and have been cited in TheStreet.com, SFO Magazine, Financial Times and several other publications.
