Thinking of getting into the day-trading business (i know its a crappy market, but i'm backtesting a system that I think works and I have seven years of derivatives trading experience). I can put up the 5k so I'm looking for the best place to go. I'm looking for a prop shop - non-retail - that would give me a little leeway in that they wouldn't ask for fresh capital if I did go through the 5k while I was getting my feet wet assuming the firm was making money on me/not losing. I don't necessarily need .04 - I wouldn't ask for that till I got a steady track record. What type of deal should I expect/ask for? Any place that's good on health insurance as I have a family?
