Jason Perz, who is a relatively new Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) with Camshaft Capital, uses TT for trade execution.

One of TT’s key differentiators is the ease with which we can connect new markets to the platform. In fact, we have added more than 10 exchanges to TT over the last 18 months.

We hope you enjoy this conversation with Michael. For more information, please visit the ATHEX website.
