    I traded for a year at a prop firm trading equities and did pretty decently. However, beause of their pay structure I only was taking home roughly 50% of my profits which made it a losing proposition at the time. I have come into some money and would like to use it to trade from home as a career. However, my trading style involves trading for momentum and volatility and execution is of the utmost importance to me. I would prefer to trade by keyboard as opposed to mouse click as well as I feel it is easier and faster in the quicker moving stocks that I will be trading.

    Unfortunately, I know nothing about what companies are out there that allow for someone to do retail trading from home and have a good, fast trading platform for NYS/NAS. If anyone has suggestions for me they would be greatly, greatly appreciated.
