Quote from Robert Weinstein:
I ended up getting things worked out with suretrader. I started trading with them and it's going smoothly. No complaints.
They only offer a simple DAS web based trading interface for free, but with the rates they charge and the better overall offer, even after paying for the software platform its a great deal.
Today i traded much of the day but still not totally full time yet again. I signed up as an affiliate with them, but there are other brokers too. I think we will see a lot more of this. It's just too easy of an alternative compared to going prop (they offer prop too, but retail is almost as good as prop for them)
Stayed with Suretrader and still trading with them. I am not a big fan of DAS and miss the "booktrader" of IB, but I do enjoy the leverage, the short availability, and the lower costs. So far so good.
On another note, I have slowed down in writing about stocks and have increased the amount of trading I am doing. I have pretty much traded everyday this month and back to the level of "full time" trading.
Wrists are bothering me a lot so I am keeping the trades to "premium" ones and so my volume is way down, and much less scalping. My PnL hasn't suffered as a result though (not much anyway) so even with lower volume the end result after factoring in stress reduction and PnL swings I am ahead.
I started posting my daily results and will likely do so here on ET again shortly.
