While the pros of trading from home are obvious, flexibility to be available for a variety of personal reasons, there are many benefits to working from the office of an experienced trading firm.
One of the biggest benefits of working with your firm’s office would be the outstanding IT support that comes with it. Every trader must have reliable high speed internet, which is pretty easy to come by these days even in remote locations. If there happens to be a residential outage, however, you are at the mercy of your local provider. When trading from the professional environment of your firm, you will enjoy reliable backup systems, and alternative computers available if you have a hardware malfunction. A smooth-running machine with a reliable battery backup is imperative to complete your trades on time.
In addition to top-notch IT equipment and support, one of the best advantages of working in-house with your fellow traders is being surrounded by experienced traders. Each seasoned trader has developed their own systems for observing and getting a feel for the market, which is hands on learning you cannot acquire from a screen. This mentoring is valuable especially to a new trader. You learn to develop your own strategies and feel for the market when your experienced colleagues and mentors are within the same office.
