System 2 Trading was founded by traders, for traders. We know what it takes to be a successful trader because we’ve done it (and continue to do it).
John is one of the founders of System 2 Trading. Unlike other firm owners, you’ll find John glued to his monitors during trading hours.
The electronic marketplace can change quickly. We stay a few steps ahead. System 2 is continually investing in technological improvements. Our help desk is always ready to personally answer your questions.
Our Chicago trading floor is open and relaxed. Traders work with one another to maximize success, including mentoring. And we want to keep it that way. We’re selective about who we invite in. We’re serious, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Talk to us.
Liquidity can vanish in an instant. Smart routes provide another option in fast markets for quick execution and deeper liquidity. When direct exchange routing is too expensive or cumbersome, smart routing can save time and execution costs. System 2 Trading provides low cost smart routing capabilities to all our equity options traders.
Scan for heavy equity option volume; scan by spread; scan by open interest; or make your own. Nobody trades exactly the same.
