I'm a newbie here, so I'm sure this question has been answered on this forum before. I'm looking to make a move into prop trading. I've just begun to do my research on the various day trading/prop trading firms in NYC, and found that each one has different commisions, fees, training programs, leverage, etc. I know there are probaly lots of people on these boards who have either worked or are currently working at one of these firms, who can chime in and tell me some the pros and cons of each of them. So far in my research I have learned about Lynx, Hold Brothers, Echotrade and Nexis Capital. I know there are many many more out there offering different deals. I would love to hear what everyones experiences have been like. Thanks.
