I'm new to all this trading stuff. I'd like to know which firm is best for "new" traders entering the industry. I'm NOT looking to cut the best deals at the moment. The only thing I'm interested is in getting top-notch experience from seasoned veterans. I wouldn't mind giving up part of my profits to such senior traders in exchange for their mentorship. As I feel I will be sacrificing my time and efforts for at least 6 months, I really don't feel the need to slap down $25,000, so firms that require this up front is out of the question. I also would like to stay away from firms that simply hire anyone with money as I feel they really lack in quality traders. Thanks for reading. Your help is appreciated.
