    News on the street. Lion's Group Trading, LLC is dead. Turns out they didn't know anything about running a business. Lots of good guys lost their shirts to a bad business model.

    A bit of advice. To all you commission hounds. If you need lower commissions you can't make money trading.

    Say goodbye to the mook trader.....
  2. I don't know this Lion's Group but "Nomooks" has a good point. If your trading profits are so dependent on another few bps, then you probably shouldn't be in the game. While I am all for lower commissions, it was the higher rates that often forced a trader to learn, that weeded out the "mooks" and that kept the firms in business that gives opportunity to traders.

    Go with a stable professional firm that provides service and accountability not just the lowest rates.
  3. lower rates means more profits for the individual trader.
    A experienced pro dosent need squat besides the right SOFTWARE, CONNECTION and RATE. If some scrub tries to charge him to a high rate offering SERVICES AND ETC., he walks away from the deal because he dosent need it.

  4. Honestly....did you think that it wasnt going to happen? A bunch of big Worldco guys starting a firm with no business skills....hA

    all that plus the right clearing doesn't always translate into the lowest rates...
  6. As far as commissions are concerned I do not regret paying lower and I would wish not to pay any in exchange for 25% of profits in this trading environment. For advocates of higher commissions, I think it's clear that higher commissions do not ensure your company from going down.
  7. I disagree. Service, quality, stability, and professionalism mean something. Why do some car buyers purchase a Ford when some buy a Jaguar? Made by the same company. It is the quality and service. Sometimes the cheaper stuff ends up costing a lot more in the long-run.

    I am for low rates. I am not for the lowest rates simply because they are. I am for the best combination of the above qualities and cost.

    What is the old sayning, "You get what you pay for"?
