I've traded my own small account for over a year and am extremely interested in applying for a prop trading position. I've got a list of firms to send resumes to and I was wondering if I could tap into all this brainpower in the forum to see if anyone might have some advice for a beginner-novice trader who is looking to trade a firm's capital. I do not have any capital to put up, so I might just have to be patient to grow what I have to put "down". Any other options I might not be aware of to trade full time without having capital? Am I asking for too much or being naive?
