I've traded futures for a prop shop in Chicago for the last five years (mostly yield curve strategies). Each year has been profitable (some quite) but I'm looking for a new firm. This is my first post on this site, so I'm hoping there are a few people who could provide some valuable insight. The firm I'm with is solid from a risk standpoint (they don't mind when you get big for the right opportunities), but the partners don't reinvest a penny in technology, research, or continued development of current successful traders. I'm looking for a firm (doesn't really matter where it's located) that has intelligent, profitable traders that I can continually learn from (and possibly help as I'd like to think I bring plenty to the table). Basically, I'm looking for a firm that actually invests in its traders and supports them to be able to continually grow with greater risk and hopefully profit. As far as the deals that are offered, most places will give 60/40 splits with certain strings attached. I'm not immediately concerned with the deal as long as I believe the firm is looking for traders with good track records. Anyway, if anyone out there has firm suggestions, or even people that could lead me in a better direction on my search, I would really appreciate it. Thanks and good luck to everyone out there.
