Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by dbfinvestments, Nov 2, 2010.

  1. I am looking to start a career as prop trader. I am still doing research on this and I am trying to learn as much as I can. I am looking for some suggestions for good firms and to help you help me here is my background. - I am a finance major, I have been working in Real Estate and have been studying many long term equity strategies and have recently been learning short term day trading strategies. I am a novice and would need some sort of formal training however I am a quick learner and I grasp analytical concepts quickly. I would like my initial investment to be kept around 10k and would like a firm that would leverage me to some extent. I understand that I wont get the best terms because I am new, and i am fine with that. So mainly I'm looking for these things in a firm.

    -Good education
    -Solid leverage
    -Low fees to join
    -Willing to train a new trader

    Thanks for the help
