I'm starting a new "job" with Lynx Capital Partners (owned by Assent) as a trader next Monday. I've been reading posts from a number of different threads and I've gotta say that I'm a bit nervous about the whole prop trading thing. I agreed to take the position partly because they would sponsor me for the series 7, but also because I thought prop trading was interesting and challenging, and its something I want to get into. My main concern is that they didn't really fill me in on all the details of leverage they use and were light about details on anything else. They did say there would be a good deal of training involved but now I'm concerned this was just a sales pitch. I know there are a wide range of prop shops from terrible to reputable, but how do I know if my company is any good?
