my portfolio has grown pretty well so far so i think I'm ready to make the next move and make this a true profession. so far I have been trading as a personal trader on a personal account with interactive brokers. I feel its time to move up. I know i need to incorporate and I may need to upgrade my trading platform. Is there benefit to moving on from interactive brokers towards bigger companies? any advice on making this transition would be greatly appreciated. I'm not opening a hedge fund but I do want to be a professional personal trader. there isn't much info out there about the business side of this process so any suggestions or even a point in the right direction of some good info would be a great help.
