GFT expands into Chicago

Michigan-based futures commission merchant Global Forex Trading (GFT) has opened a new branch in Chicago.

GFT plans to hire 35 sales dealers for the office, which will be managed by James Green, senior counsel.

“With an increasing number of commodities and futures traders now trading in spot currencies markets, an office located near the world’s largest futures exchanges was a logical decision for GFT,” said Gary Tilkin, president and founder of the firm.
