    I am looking to get back into prop trading and I'm reaching out to Elite Trader for any and all feedback and ideas.

    Here's the skinny:
    made money for a few years prop trading NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, briefly Forex.
    Not independently wealthy but confident in ability and track record.
    Not currently licensed. Used to have Series 7 and 63 for ten years.
    Been a few years since I have actively traded.
    Not interested in putting up capital. Not very liquid right now, plus my first trainer taught me if a traded Prop and made money Prop stay Prop.
    I do have the love of trading and commitment to trade again 100%
    My friend is swaying me to index futures citing liquidity and nice technicals, but exp. In equities.
    I saw a couple of prop firms in nyc that made sense but I read that they want you to stay @ 100 shares.
    I like the Chicago style firms - they want real traders and seem to hire based on merit like Patak. It seems many NYC firms only want big deposits or training fees.
    No problem Sim trading to prove self
