They let you take risk, but you end up paying for it

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Amr Capital Trading Corp

ProsLet you take decent losses without putting up much capital. Has an initial training course to teach the basics on trading.

ConsThe rates are pretty high, and management is opaque about what is actually going in with changes in the company

Advice to Senior ManagementTo be more clear and open with its traders. Explain why rates are so high or offer different packages openly on costs vs services offered

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Decent for experienced traders, mediocre for new traders

Equity Trader (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amr Capital Trading Corp full-time for more than a year

ProsLots of freedom to trade whatever you want, relaxed environment, no capital contribution required, decent buying power, easy to ask for more buying power if your results are good, reliable back office support

ConsSparse training, little interaction between group members, very high commission rates, software isn't the fastest, nothing in the pantry besides coffee, no real perks

Advice to Senior ManagementAdjust structure to attract better talent, lower commission rates to keep the talent
