I am looking for a higher margin than Reg T. I now understand that prop firms have capital which they can provide for traders. I am established trader - don't need training, mentors, etc. I am basically looking for the way to somehow get bigger loan than Reg T. Prop firm look like a solution. At least from the first sight. Is there prop firms which are structured similar to retail firms but offer higher margin? I am looking for reputation, size, being able to work remotely and reasonble due diligence process from the prop firm, and low commissions. And of course no long lock outs of my money. I can pay somewhat higher margin / loan rates. Does anybody have any such prop firms in mind? Is there any other way to get loan for trading? (Serious size loan - I am not talking about credit cards or personal loans from banks). I was thinking about public offering of notes, but lawyer told me it is going to cost me $200 K. Private placement of notes is hard to pull off since I will not be able to advertise. Thanks a lot.
