Hello Everyone, I am 20 years old. I have been trading since early February of this year with a small portion of my father's self-directed IRA. I have dropped out of College to pursue a career as a Professional Trader. Since I began trading, I am down for the year, roughly 35% on my father's account and we both agreed that it would be best for me to stop trading live. So now I trade strictly virtually. I have had some very big wins early when I started trading bursting my father's account up 40% within a month and a half on some risky bearish directional trades and ever since then, a lack of discipline and poor money management has brought me to where I am now. Consistency is king in this business (from what I've researched) and I was not a consistent trader, it took much research to really figure out where I was going wrong. Nevertheless, I have not lost my drive to pursue this as a career because I know failure is necessary at times to make myself better at anything. I have been working 40+ hour weeks just trying to save up money and I have enough money to put in for both training fees and a minimum capital requirement to join a trading community/prop firm. I want to join a Prop firm where I can trade options remotely, I don't envision myself daytrading equities and I don't plan on applying to a firm that stresses volume. I want to join a firm that has a real vested interest in their trader's success. From all the firms I have personally researched, many have mixed reviews. Is there anyone here, preferably an active member of these forums who can direct me towards a few good Options Prop Firms? I have been looking into Maverick Trading and I was just looking for a few more firms to look into that specialize in Options. There are just so many names out there. Thanks in advance for any meaningful response to this thread.
