I am currently a senior in college and am facing probably the hardest decision of my life..... I have been offered a propritary trading position, which is great for me because I always wanted to get into investments. I am receiving other job offers at entry level positions, but the idea of unlimited amount of earning potential really wants me to become a day trader. I am skeptical because they require me to open an account with their company for $5000, while they give me leverage to deal with $100,000. Another main reason that is making my skepitism grow is their training program: they said that they only train for a week and then they put me out there (however for the first few months I can only trade very minimal amounts. I am getting a mixed opinion from my peers and would MOST DEFINATELY like the opinion of some day traders.
