I've got a friend who has been trying to open a futures account. He currently is a college student and does not have a job but he tells me hes got around 10k that he wants to trade futures with. Hes been turned down by a couple discount brokers because they want him to sign a joint account because he really has no net worth. I thought about signing it for him but im still kind of undecided about his trading skill. Anyone here know of any discount futures brokers that let people open accounts even when they have zero net worth?
