First time posting up here.. I just wanted to get some opinions. I recently graduated from a top tier undergrad business school with a degree in finance and accounting. I've been making trades since freshmen year of college, but now I'm considering joining a prop shop. I've done my due diligence and went in for interviews with a couple different firms. I don't want to give out the name of the firm that I've been considering, but here's what they offer: CBSX member firm - so 1 yr lockup of $5k (no series 7 req) No desk or other service fees .005 commission starting out 90% payout 50:1 leverage so 250k bp Lightspeed platform Training isn't extensive, but the head trader acts as a mentor and teaches you his trading strategy which has proven to be profitable the majority of the time. You start off trading a couple hundred shares with a pretty low loss limit, then grow as you show profitability. How does all this sound? Also, for those veteran traders out there, can you share your experiences when you first started off? thanks.
