There is no typical Met Trader. All we’re interested in is your ability and commitment. We are not a big bank with layers of management and protocol. Our environment is flexible and informal. You’ll have all the screens you need and experience all around you. We trade, pure and simple.
While some new traders do make it big quickly, it’s rare. It usually takes 12 months to start making substantial earnings, so you must be able to support yourself initially.
Once you’ve completed your training, the first six to nine months will be tough. So we need people with staying power. You’ll need to be able to hold your nerve and cope with losses. Put in the work, use your brain, and the rewards will come.
It's not all work and no play. It's a social environment and we like to treat our traders to fun stuff when they do well. We also get involved in a lot of charity activities. Find out more about the latest happenings on our blog.
