Advice regarding prop shops

  1. Hello everyone,

    I am writing to ask for your opinion regarding which prop shop or broker might be the best fit for me.

    Currently I trade remotely with Lightspeed and they give me the standard 4 to 1 margin. I need a prop shop to give me better leverage on my Intraday Buying Power and Overnight Buying Power. Preferably that brokerage house will have very large stock loan department and will make shorting easier.

    My aim is to be able to day trade and swing trade with reasonable leverage on my money. Being able to short large number of stocks is also extremely important.

    I would be very grateful for any advice.
