Assistant Trading ProgramEdit
SIG runs an AT program to help new traders obtain positions in market making and business trading. Each AT will be given simulated trading sessions and classes. These topics include option theory,m decision science, market structure, corporate finance, and game theory. After an HT completes the AT program, the AT will attend the SIG Market Maker Class, and then they become a trader at SIG.
Poker is a recruiting tool for SIG, mainly because the founders believe that poker helps with decision making under cases of uncertainty. SIG even hosts an internal poker tournament every year. Bill Chen, a World Series of Poker SIG, is one of SIG's quantitative trading markets.
