Can I be registered with a broker/dealer/RIA and still trade with an outfit like Avatar? A little background: After leaving my last prop firm, my Dad managed to talk me in to helping him out with his investment management practice instead of joining another prop firm(he's been in it for 30 years but is getting older and needs someone to lighten his workload of 80+hours a week) so I registered with his broker/dealer/RIA and am doing that part time now-mostly helping him with marketing and client support right now. However, I really miss day trading, and I have been looking at some other firms for remote trading. Mainly, CY group and Avatar. I have spoken with both of them and neither has been able to answer my question above. Ultimately I will have to speak with my broker dealer about it, and it is my understanding they have the right to flat out tell me I can't do it. Before I go to them, though, I would like to be armed with a little more information. Is there any compliance pro here, or anyone who has experienced this sort of thing that could shed some light? Currently Avatar does not require registration, fyi.
