    I am having a tough time finding very many forex prop firms in the US. There seems to be a lot more in Europe than over here.

    A couple that I have found are Forex Trading USA and Global FX. Has anyone traded for these firms, and if so how are their programs?

    I also heard that FXCM lets traders trade their capital, but not sure if this is true.

    Are there any other forex firms in the US? Thanks in advance for any responses
  2. A reliable source told me Felix Homogratus is actively recruiting a few good men for his Forex Peace Army.

    why do you need a prop firm when you can get 400:1 leverage on your 500 dollar savings

    May be they are looking for strategies that work..strategies that are capital intensive...:D :D

    I wouldn't be able to live off of trading $500. I'm trying to trade as my career, but I don't have enough money saved up yet to do so on my own. So I'd rather trade a company's capital.

    I saw this on Craigslist last month. I have no info on this firm. Do notice they want to hold $4k of your money until you stay w/ them for 6 months.
  7. Delray Beach, eh?

    Im a little put off by "Our proprietary systems have well defined rules and parameters. We employ traders to trade our signals at our firm using our firm capital."

    and then

    " You must follow all firm rules and procedures to receive the refund."

    Id be a little hesitant to give up the style Ive developed and am comfortable with.
