I was a profitable prop trader for 6 yrs and quit a couple of yrs ago when i was married. I did well for a while and made consistent imcome, but things went south for a while and I quit due to pressure from the wife. I was wondering boards opinion on getting back in. I am currently working a 9 to 5 (or should i say 8:30 to 8) and I am thinking about going back into trading prop. My expenses are very low and I have a small biz on the side which is just about to become profitable (slightly). I am planning on beginning trading again in sep or oct. from small office i have with friend. Any input from equities prop traders still in the game? Has much changed in the last 2 years (i.e. fees, platforms, profitability). Feels weird actually posting this message being that i was a prop trader and used to train new traders. I am trying to get a realistic feel for whats happening right now, as I have been away from actual trading for some time. I am just looking for general responses, as I am not looking for a strategy. I know there is always alot of turnover in my 6 or 7 yrs, but I am wondering if the latest washout has made it better for guys that stuck it out?
