OK So i've spoken with both Hold Brothers, AKA Xerxes Trading LLC and EchoTrade. From what i gather these are some of the rates for both firms: EchoTrade --.005/share --till you're doing 15k-20k then it goes down to 4/10 of a penny --$365/Monthly data feed --100% payout --No Training or mentoring involved --With a $5k deposit you get 20 to 1 intra but NO OVERNIGHT Hold Brothers --.007/share---price goes down as your trading volume increases --$240/Monthly Data Fee --Payout based on volume --Have mentoring, ie training through marketraptor.com --With a $5k deposit you get 60 to 1 intra & 4 to 1 overnight OK so those are some of the important points i got while talking to them. So can someone please help me decide on who to go with?? Please feel free to submit your experience with each or both firms...or any other pros/cons i might've left out. This will be my 1st prop firm, and although nothing is guaranteed in life, i'd like to make the decision that will put in a position to suceed. Thanks everyone.
