This is a rather wide question but I am attempting to get some honest feed back on it, at what point (maybe volume wise?) would a small steady group move from trading their own money, to wanting to recruite and train others? are prop firms willing to provide software and clearing and sub account structure, with what as expectation in return? I would like to in the future open up a public office, but the infustructure i would need to make it worth wilde to a prop firm or to be taken serious is more what i am asking- Is there anyone out there willing to worth with me thru the growing pains ( or possibly lack thereoff) IF anyone has sucessfully opened up their own branch of a prop firm please pm me or contact me so i can follow up with some more questions. I understand the need to keep the door open, and this part i can anticipate, but other then that- I know what i would like to accomplish end result, but i dont know what i dont know to get there. any honest respectable feed back is much apperciated. thank you in advance RD.
