Andy Tan is a former floor broker on SIMEX for Merrill Lynch. He was in the SIMEX trading pits with Merrill Lynch for almost 15 years. As SIMEX migrated to the screen, Tan made a successful transition upstairs with Merrill Lynch focusing on index arbitrage across Asian products. Then he decided to trade for himself and made it past the first few difficult months and found success. He joined and is building a successful trading firm today. He told his story over Zoom to John Lothian for the MarketsWiki Education Open Outcry Traders History Project.
Here is Andy Tan’s story.
