Gain an invaluable practical experience in financial markets
Amplify Trading runs many of the largest global investment graduate trading internships and this experience will make a significant impact to any CV as many of those institutions now actively seek candidates that have benefited from the front desk experience delivered by us.
Our interns work closely with the Amplify team as they apply and manage multi-asset class strategies during major market news and events. Places for the summer months of 2015 are already all fully booked. However current students are encouraged to secure their place on our trading internships program for the summer months of 2016 as these dates are likely to be over-subscribed.
We take pride in the impact our trading internships have on the future career of our candidates. Through our network and the personal career support given to each candidate we significantly improve their competitive advantage in the financial industry. Below are just some of the emails received in recent months; finding out how well our trainees get on after the programme is the highlight for any of the team that work with the intern trainees.
Taking your course has helped me to manifest my goal to work as a Trading COO…I’ve just landed a new role at Standard Chartered here in London working for the Head of Sales & Trading… Your course was the missing piece of the jigsaw…Thank you! It worked! Amplify Trading Alumni – Charlotte Eaton, May 2015
I would like to let you know that I’ve been offered a summer internship at Bank of America Merrill Lynch for 2016 within Global Markets… The advice, opportunities and training that you and the guys provided last summer will forever be invaluable to me and my career. I have recommended the Trading internships course at Amplify Trading to all my friends interested in the field – Amplify Trading Summer Intern – Dhinta Josslyn, April 2015
I hope this email finds you well! Just wanted to let you know that I have received an offer for an internship at Nomura this summer. I have taken a slight change of direction since Amplify (now interning in Research), but the Amplify experience still provides great talking points in interviews! - Amplify Trading Alumni – Angus Milne, April 2015
It goes without saying that I would not have been able to secure my position as Market Maker if it was not for the experience I gained at Amplify. Having graduated with a 2:2 I knew securing a job in London and in finance would be a challenge. I leave feeling extremely proud of what I have done and what I have been able to achieve with the experience I have gained from Amplify. – Amplify Trading Alumni – Daniel Chew, March 2015
I received an offer in December to work for the Bank of England in their new PRA division. In the interview process I spoke in depth about my time at Amplify and I would like to thank you personally for all your help this summer. Everyone that I have spoken to who has completed the internship at Amplify are always so positive about the experience, you should be very proud of your work and the team you have around you. -Amplify Trading Intern, Elliot Jones, February 2015
Short Intense Trading Course
From the start of 2015 Amplify Trading has extended the unique practical trading programmes to candidates looking for a shorter programme in professional trading.
Condensed over five evenings, or taken over a full week-end each candidate is taken through a journey of understanding equity, bond, commodity and forex trading. Candidates apply the theory taught on the same institutional software used by our experienced traders and will continue to receive access to our trading room facilities and support for a further three weeks after completing the programme.
This programme gives individual traders a strong fundamental platform on which to build further trading experience and also gives a detailed study on behavioral finance and understanding of trading psychology to help traders manage their risk at an institutional level.
One evening programme will be run each month, however only four weekend programmes are run each year. Please review the below brochure for more information.
Amplify Traders can either follow the programme from our trading floor in London or from their own location through a hybrid option. For the first week of theory training all traders in-house and hybrid traders are invited to our training facility (these lectures are recorded for traders who cannot come to London).
In-house traders then move to their trading desks for the duration of the programme and hybrid traders join the trading room through our communication platform from their own location. All systems and software can be installed on the hybrid traders own PC and using our unique communication platform the experience copies closely what a trader would experience in house, including personal mentorship and support. All lecture material and teaching content is delivered through this communication room.
Hybrid traders will be invited to regular in-house activities in London should they be able to attend.
An example of how a hybrid trader would be connected to the trading floor whilst they manage their own trades can be seen below:

What experience do I need to start to trade with Amplify?
Our intensive training assumes the trader has limited prior direct market experience. However, because our traders trade our funds, we work hard to make sure core financial market theory is clearly understood as the trader is taken through the programme.
Content starts by covering some of the key basics before moving quickly onto more advanced fundamental analysis and trading strategies.
How can I know if I will succeed as a professional trader?
Can I trade on the trading floor?
Yes, absolutely. All our in house traders are based full time on their own state-of-the-art trading desk in the heart of the City of London.
Why trade a company funded account?
Trading futures provides leverage that greatly increases exposure to a trader’s position. This exposure necessitates financial margin requirements that very quickly run into tens of thousands of pounds, all margin requirements will be provided by Amplify Trading to allow our traders to increase their size and exposure as they progress.
What can I do to prepare before my start?
In the two months prior to your start Amplify Trading will be sending you daily market research and analysis from our own team of anaylsts here, as well as leading third party financial institutions. You will be encouraged to try and read through what you can to start to digest terminology and strategy. You will also be sent by email a number of book in pdf format that we give as recommended reading.
We trade contemporary financial market events so the more you can expose yourself to relevant financial market news the better. Of course, once you start you will have access to all the news from leading providers including Bloomberg and Reuters. In the meantime the below links may be useful:
