Junior US Trader Larnaca

Location: Larnaca

About us

Z.R.T.X. Trading Ltd. (Larnaca, Cyprus) is a company trading on the European stock exchanges and the Nasdaq. Founded early this millennium, ZRTX successfully focuses on trading equities and futures on a daily basis.  Accent Circonflexe Groupe, the mother company of ZRTX and a Euronext-member, is after 25 years in the markets, still a youthful and enthusiastic company with an informal culture and a healthy growth ambition.  Accent Circonflexe and ZRTX Trading Ltd do not trade on behalf of external customers; our traders trade for the account and risk of the company itself.

You will start with a short but intensive 2-3 months training period in Cyprus. If succesful, you will continue working in our Larnaca office to trade independently on the financial markets. You will identify trading opportunities and take the related actions.  You will learn how to qualify news, identify trends, value opportunities and control risk.  In this position, it's all about speed, concentration and responding adequately to what is happening in the market.  Vision, timing, knowledge and experience; everything comes together in this job.  During the day you discuss opportunities with your colleagues, however you always take decisions to buy or to sell by yourself.  It is a fascinating world in which your working attitude, talent, knowledge and discipline will determine your success.  Depending on your results, you may soon leave the junior level and make your way to medium and finally senior professional level. 

At the moment, we are specifically seeking juniors to fill our new USA desk.  This implies you come in later, prepare for the US markets and start trading as soon as the exchanges open across the Atlantic.  Your trading day ends when the US markets close.

Your personal profile

You are enterprising, love to work independently within a collegiate team.  In strongly fluctuating markets, you show both discipline and flexibility.  You have a healthy dose of self-confidence, motivation and analytical capabilities, in particular numerical.  Initiative, intuition, ambition and winning mentality are your keys to success.  And here’s another clue: you probably are successful in poker or other games that involve risk assessment, patience and "controlled aggression".
