Hiya, I came across Swift Trade while doing some research on an unrelated subject and have since been encouraged (from inside) to work there. I've gone through as many threads on the subject as I could find, but still have some questions that remain. My interest in ST is not driven from a desire to make the big bucks; it's from a desire to make some bucks while leaving time for everything else. The way it's been pitched to me is that one works during the market hours, minus three hours when activity slows down over the lunch period. Is this really a job that I can leave behind after the market closes, or will it require constant research over the course of my would-be career? In respect to the amount of time required of its employees, is ST substantially different from any other company does prop trading? Some people have suggested that it's ridiculous to accept training without pay for any length of time, but -- once again -- it's the notion of being finished by 4:00 that appeals to me, so that I can engage in more constructive activities. Is this a vaguely practical perspective, or shall I simply run screaming back into the arms of my current career? Thanks for your help.
