Hi guys, I've been researching a bit on prop firms. I have been day trading for about 8 months and am getting profits consistently, but now I want to tap into prop trading a bit to see if it's for me. Unfortunately, many prop firms make you pay big training fees, etc. I already like my methods and my trading plan, so I don't want to be taught a new trading plan when I'm already comfortable with mine and profit consistently. No need to fix something that's not broken just so someone can make money off me. I don't have a series 7 either and it seems like you need this to join a prop firm first. I have other obligations, so traveling to a 3-day conference in another state is not possible, either, which a lot of US prop firms ask of you. Nothing against them, they're just trying to protect themselves from over-eager traders, but just stating where I'm at now. So anyway, I see that overseas prop firms are a way to go for someone like me. I can put in that $2,500 minimum just to try and see, luckily it's just a small, negligible investment. I love the independence. It's what traders with their own plan need, but it makes me wonder if some other doofus is going to apply for that prop firm as well, be given this same independence and trade foolishly left and right and jeopardize the good traders? Looked into Sure Trader and TM Global Capital. Yesterday, I got an email reply from TM Global Capital, signed Ed. A little bit of a turn-off to not get a last name in the signature line, I must say. The reply was an immediate signature file. Also, disappointing. How do they know if you qualify? I am a US citizen. From what I understand, they are not allowed to solicit me, but if I myself contact them, they will accept US citizens, correct? From the contract I got, TM Global Capital requires a $2,500 escrow account so to speak to buffer for any losses, and they give a 99% payout. You are supposed to have 20 trades a month to avoid an inactivity fee. I use eSignal now and love it, so I wonder if I can incorporate it with them? It's pictured on their website. I have been researching on these companies all night. It seems like EliteTrader has the only legitimate reviews (hence, I joined), but those are from last year. And you know how quickly those prop firms pop up and go away. TM Global Capital is featured on Bulls on Wall Street (never used the service), but I found that the last prop firm that Bulls on Wall Street featured was Lake Street Trading, which went under because it turned out to be an illegal broker dealer. It makes me question the credibility of this Bulls on Wall Street service. If their last recommended "prop firm" wasn't even a normally licensed LLC, what makes them qualified to now endorse TM Global Capital? So this is an ***updated*** question to what you guys think about those Bahamas overseas prop firms? Honestly, I am tired of this SEC stuff. It seems like these loop holes deter many good day traders with great percentage winning rates, so I am ready for something better. I don't appear to be qualified for a US prop firm. Thoughts, suggestions? Thanks!
