I am thinking about taking my trading to the next level. I have been throwing down some good numbers this past year trading the NQ and ES. I have a few friends and family that want to put up money and have me trade it for them. The IB Universal account won't work because unless I am a RIA I can't charge a management fee. I don't think the CTA route will work either, even though I have my series 3 & 7 because I believe the FCM would charge a higher RT commision because of the risk involved. I may be wrong on this one though. I am a scalper and trade about 100 RT a day, so commision is everthing. Right now paying 3.5 RT. I want to incorporate under the ECM rule have 5 -10 people invest. I will trade the account and take 50% of the profits. I will also be putting in my own money as well. Any ideas?
