I'm just now getting started with my first Prop Firm. I'm writing this Blog just to give others some reference who might be thinking of getting into a Prop Firm and might have some questions. My Experience Prior to Prop Firm: I've dabbled off and on for the past 10yrs with short term trading and limited day trades. I've never carried more than 25k in my account so my trading has always been limited. I've mostly used TD Ameritrade throughout this time frame. It wasn't until this past year that I got into trading on a regular basis. I kept around 15k in my Trading accounts and therefore even went as far as splitting it up amongst TD, E-trade and Scott just so I could make 9 roundtrips a week. I decided a few Months ago to start looking into Prop Firms and I began following twitter posters that also day traded. I began following the "Bulls on Wallstreet" folks quite a bit and really enjoyed their day trading chat room (14 day trial). I decided that I would go with the Prop Firm that their members use (Lake Street Trading). The following posts and replies by me will be about my on-going experience with Lake Street. As of now I'm not sure if it will be a positive or negative experience but it should make for a good reference point for others in search of a prop firm.
