    Have been a lurker up to now, time to change that. If you were a non-US trader with managed accounts and wanted to step into US markets, how to do it?

    I'd be very happy about any input on the following, to accept US customers I either need to be CTA or have a US CTA "representing" me, right? At this point becoming CTA myself is not an option, I guess - any tips on how and where (here?:) ) to find the right CTA you can trust and work with? What commission for this job do you think would be appropriate?

    To become a CTA myself, is there any completed financial profession necessary or do I go just go for that test and am done?

    Any input greatly appreciated!

    best regards
