    Just a note, there are a few exploitative groups on this list. Be cautious.


    Which ones??

    Also would someone explain what Per Ticket Deal implies to the Trader? Pro's and Con's....

    What is the standard across the Prop-Firm Community as Pay-Out,
    Commissions, etc

    I have been offered 65% & 70% and 80%
    The lower of the 3 with 20x1 Buying Power, and the Higher with 10x1

    With Commissions as low as 1.50 1000shares up to .0035 Per ticket...

    Anyone that can give insight, and from experience share...
    Does anyone know of Prop-Firms they trade remote with and are happy...Please Contact me... and or respond...

    Thank you,

    Hope all have a great weekend!!
  5. JC, try a search on this site.. there's tons of info about various prop firms
  6. I think it may be time to update the above list...many are no longer around, period.....and many are just "sub-llc's". And, I think the term "day trade" firms doesn't describe serious trading firms..our people do a heck of lot more than "day trade" - often keeping many (many) positions for days, weeks, months, whatever fits their tradng style.

    If my memory serves me right, there were about 120 or so back a few years, and probably less than 10 (viable, broker dealer, exchange member firms), and only a handful that can or will accomodate serious traders who need to use enough capital to make a good living.

    (LOL, of course I'm a bit biased, but at the same time, I like to see facts here on the board whenever possible). Maybe someone could take the time to sort out the above list.

    BTW, 100% payout with simply a token amount of capital is required...along with a license.
    All the best,
