Great place to learn about options

Trader Intern (Former Employee)

ProsI really enjoyed my time at Simplex even though I ended up taking a different job. It's a great place to learn options theory, and their technology and development team is top notch. If you're interested in algo trading, these guys can teach you a lot.

ConsSimplex is a specialized firm that trades only equity options with no directional risk, and all strategies and ideas must fit that mold.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
