    College Grad. Here are the best place and worst place to start your Trading Career.

    Best place to trade:

    1) NYC
    2) Chicago
    3) Northern NJ (who the fuck wants to live in NJ)
    4) London
    5) Stamford, CT

    Worst place to trade

    1) Florida (South FL) Capital of Chop Shop. Stay away!
    2) California
    3) Texas
    4) Atlanta
    5) Denver

    People should know by now Florida is the CAPITAL of chop shop whether they are prop firm, hedge funds, brokerages, and 3rd party educational/system vendors.

    I advise to stay away from doing business in Florida. Otherwise, they (Prop firms, 3rd party educational/system vendors, brokerages, hedge funds) will steal your money!

    I am looking for the best answer. Bring them up!

    I make some money...NOT ALOT.. but im filled with the notion that the house always wins. I hear stories of my friends they go in to there desks at the hedge funds and look in there emails and all the stocks they need to trade today are already there. All the positions to take are already there.

    Aren't you the guy that says all you do is lose when you trade. You just lose!

    Chicago is the trading capital of the world.
