I'm technically a 'kid' when it comes to speculative derivatives structuring (<30). I have a position trading method that Iâve developed independently, but I don't have the personal net worth to open a retail account for trading futures and futures options, which would be fine to begin with; and I lack the personal connections to borrow the capital to bring my net worth up to par. Therefore, I find myself in a less than ideal situation, but I'm the type who wouldn't have it any other way, for the time being. At any rate, Iâve got three choices: 1) find a job with a local prop trading firm that provides trading capital 2) find a trading mentor/partner willing to give me a shot 3) join a local trading club and hope I get a lead to 1 or 2. So, is (or was) anyone out there in a similar boat and how did things turn out? Also, can anyone think of any other choices for me? And, if youâre in Socal, are there any reputable local trading clubs that I could join? Thanks!
