Hi, Just wondering which non series 7 requiring firms offer the best deals for experienced traders? Being experienced, obviously I don't want to have to pay for "training" and I can offer the 12 months of trading records that is usually requested by the firm. A New York location would be sweet but I'd be open to the West Coast or even Florida. I'm looking at remote trading so should matter a great deal anyway. I can give upto about $50k deposit, what sort of leverage can I get on that intraday? I'm hoping about 20x to bring me to the mil. Also what sort of commission can I expect to pay? Would half a cent a share be asking too much? My volume is about 500k shares a month. But my biggest concern is how much leeway they give you. My systems usually have upto 20% maxDD, as would be shown in the trading records. Could they handle that? Or would they restrict me? (Usually maxDD is about 8-9% from 2004-2007 but blew out to 20% in 2008. Last year 2009 was back to normal system performance). Also which firms are aligned in such a way that would allow me to trade fully automated? I'm currently trading through Amibroker and IB through the TWS API. I'm asking a fair bit here but any pointers in the right direction from those who are or have been in a similar position would be much appreciated. Cheers. Nizar.
