Okay, I've been looking for a relatively "safe" way (basically inexpensive) to enter the prop firm world, and even started a thread about it here a few days ago. So far, I'm not really finding anything that I feel particularly comfortable with. Here's my question. Do any of you know of a reasonable and realistic ALTERNATIVE to prop firms? That is, another way of at least getting one's foot in the door in the industry for those with little (but more than no) experience? Basically, something at least somewhat more stable and less costly than trading with a prop firm. Any advice would obviously be appreciated. I feel a little lost right now. Thanks.
