a few questions on beginning a prop/day trading career

  1. Hi any thoughts on this situation; i am eager to start trading for a firm which will pay me a % of any profits I make trading but I dont want to log all the trades for tax purposes. ie i want to work as an employee who collects a paycheck and possibly has benefits..again only if i make money. i have my own capital and dont need the firm for any other reason then to not have to report thousands of individual round trips on my tax forms. i am unable to trade unless its as an employee due to my wife's job restricting trading ( ie must hold for 6months) , so that is why I need to be employed as if its a regular job so to speak..

    my licenses (7,55) expired..will any firms let me trade on the basis explained above ( in the tri-state area preferably) ? who would you suggest are potentially good for remote trading?

    Thanks and feedback is welcome!
