I'm interested in finding info about Prop trading in the Chicago or East Chicago area. I've dabbled in stocks and futures for over 5 years, and have always dreamed of trading for a living. However, I'm married with kids and our lifestyle requires an income of over 50k per year from my current j o b (which I hate). I went and got my Series 3 and 30 thinking I'd like to get into the sales aspect, but that idea has fizzled. What kind of income or % return can a good trader expect withing the first 2 years? (If you are currently a Prop trader, what have you experienced) This is my first post here, and I'm not certain what responses I'll get, I guess leads would be good. Feel free to pm me. Thank You.
