I have been trading stocks profitably for a couple of years now, but I am getting fed up with the current stock trading situation. It seems you have take more and more risk for the same return and we seem to be losing more liquidity everyday. The trading edge/advantage seems to be in futures, which would allow you to trade indexes, bonds, ect. There also seems to be a big demand from other current stock traders who are looking for a change but no place to go outside of Chicago. Does anyone know of a trading firm or small group of traders that currently has a floor in CA or who are looking to open a floor out here in Southern CA? I would prefer it to be a prop type of floor which means trading someone elses money.
