Hello all, I've frequently heard of trading groups - a bunch of traders get together, rent a space (or talk virtually to each other via skype), and trade as a team. This seems to be in between pure solo retail trading and trading a prop firm's capital. There appear to be several advantages to this method. From a trading perspective... 1. Each trader brings something to the table, they either spot opportunities (scan stocks), analyze fundamentals, or come up with interesting ideas, strategies, backtest, provide IT support, etc. In the manner of taylorism, there is some division of labor. 2. Psychologically they support each other. They may also analyze their trades together, etc. They learn together this way. From a business perspective... 1. If the traders want to trade in an office, they can pool together their money and rent a space, split the costs of utils, an internet connection, uninterrupted power supply, etc. 2. If the traders want to go together as a group to a prop firm, they have some collective bargaining power as to commissions, etc. I was interested if anyone out there has been a part of a group and has any input to offer. How do you get a group together, do you find people who are at your level of performance? Do you look for people who trade like you and like the same asset classes? How do you judge who is a good fit for you? Finally, any advantages to trading in one physical space versus remotely? Thanks!
