    Internship Programme 1 Month, Worth the money in my opinion

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Amplify Trading as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    the internship gave you a complete crash course in technical and fundamental analysis, only about 15 of you on the course so if you want to ask something its not intimidating. First week is in house training then after that you get a virtual trading account using their professional software and you trade along the live markets with them at home and hooked up to them and other colleagues via conferencing software hotcomm, its like a chatroom. The course teaches you everything you need to know about prop trading from a beginners level and although its quite expensive i felt it was worth it!

    Cons

    Lost a bit of touch when working at home but you can still ask any questions through the chat room but its not quite the same.

    Pros

    Great online trading program. You develop as a trader with a mentors help, giving constant feedback and room to improve.

    Cons

    You have to work online, and sometimes there can be a lack of communication in certain busy time periods too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have a great programme running so there is not too much advice to offer at the current moment, sorry.
