WH Trading LLC is a proprietary derivatives trading firm founded in 1994 and headquartered in Chicago, Illinois. WH Trading is a liquidity provider in open outcry (“pit”) traded products at the major Chicago futures and options exchanges and in electronic markets globally. WH is active in a wide range of futures and options markets including Interest Rate, Foreign Exchange, Equity Index, Commodity and Energy, and cash market foreign exchange.
As a proprietary trading firm, WH Trading’s revenue comes from trading profits generated on physical exchange floors and electronic markets. Our risk capital is provided exclusively by the firm’s partners. Consequently, our trading decisions and strategies are not driven by the requirements and/or expectations of outside investors.
Since inception, WH Trading has grown to approximately 75 employees, including trading, technology and administrative staff. We seek to capture market share in futures, options and other asset classes as trading volume migrates from exchange floors to electronic marketplaces. While we maintain exchange floor operations, we expect future growth to come from expanding our proprietary electronic trading infrastructure into new asset classes.
