Does anyone know of a trading firm in San Francisco or (close to it) that is hiring traders? I mean I have a masters in Finance and a lot of background in statistics but it seems every firm I see that's posting jobs is just trying to get you to put up your own cash and then charge you commissions. Is there a place I can apply to that will pick me up pay me a base pay, train me, and then I can make a living with their capital (obviously make them money too). I mean is this possible anymore, or are all the firms out there just trying to get your cash? I really don't care what I'm trading I just want it to be close to the bay area, and I don't want to have to put up capital. Not that I don't have it, I just don't like the idea... Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
