Teles was hired from SAC Capital Advisors, while Alarcon's prior experience includes stints at Credit Suisse and Deutsche Bank Securities.
John Munley has also joined the bank as senior trader of G-10 currencies. He was previously a senior vice-president at the Royal Bank of Scotland.
All four traders will be based in Standard Chartered's New York office, and will report to Mohammed Grimeh, who is the bank's head of trading and deputy head of global markets, Americas. Grimeh joined Standard Chartered in January after serving as global head of emerging markets at Lehman Brothers for 10 years.
