Hi, I am trying to go with prop firm, but process is long, convoluted, but moreover they will see my trades with them and likely monitor trades with other brokers. I am somehow afraid of somebody in prop firm to study my trades and follow my system. I've survived with 2 retail firms, but my luck can stop at some point. Also, I am afraid that prop firm will change the parameters of the agreement, for example, reducing the leverage and together with with some severe limitations it will be much worse than retail firm. Also, in retail firms mostly computers monitor my account, so my success can fly under radar, but in prop firm I will have multiple risk officers required to monitor my account, so they will now how profitable it is. Is it possible to create own prop firm for myself (my own trades)and borrow more than Reg T (more than 2 to 1 overnight) from banks? Are prop firms borrow from banks putting trader's securities as collateral or are they lending to traders their own capital? I understand that it might require registration, RIA setup and so on.
