Their group leader took a big hit from one of his OTHER traders and the firm decided to shut the group leader down. These 2 guys who have been extremely profitable for the group for nearly a decade were told they would need to put in additional capital which they don't have. Both these guys are up to date in series 7, 55 and a couple other licences (I dont remember their requirements exactly as I am not in same firm as these 2) One guy avarages about 250k shares a day and the other guy avarages about 100k a day. They worked in the same place nearly 10 years, always loyal and never left with a debt (they were both negative in their accounts from time to time because of low capital requeremnts , since they were trusted). Right now they are both positive in their accounts (and lets be honest, the market has been extremely tough on prop guys last 6 months generaly speaking) but like I said, the group leader is gone and the firm (which may be in trouble) is acting very strangely. So what do you guys think. These 2 need to get into a a firm that will allow them to trade 0 down. Im sure the terms may not be favorable to them in terms of payout or commisions but at least they would still be trading. I will not mention any names so don't ask.
