I just recently joined a prop firm whose clearing firm is centurion securities. I use ML's tradespeed and overall it seems like a good platform. I've been told that the prop has 200 traders total and about a quarter trade remote. I sent them 10 grand, but I need assurances. I'm really sort of naive about how prop shops work so I wanted to know if the money I send them is secure or if I have any real assurances. I used to trade at another prop shop for about 5 months, but I left because I couldn't handle the negative vibe and the desk fee was just too expensive. Anyway, are there any remote traders who can give me a head's up on anything they have learned through their experiences? Do you ever get a little weary of having only correspondence thru email, aim, and the telephone and not really knowing what's going on at the firm? Also, is there anything else that you would tell a new trader starting up remote?
