What is Proprietary Trading?
Proprietary (or prop) Trading is a form of electronic trading where a company or financial institution trades on its own account using their own capital and balance sheet. There are no customers or investors and they experience the full profit or loss on positions.
Prop trading has a reputation as a high risk form of trading; however at OSTC we have invested in new markets and innovating techniques, and developed a unique risk-averse approach to this form of trading. This has set new standards and produces consistent, sustainable results.
