I am thankful I found this forum. Some great info. I am in Chicago and am 31. Looking to get back into trading industry. I was a clerk 4 years ago for a well known firm. I am looking for a prop firm in Chicago. Here are my ramifications, please let me know if you know anyone that might fit, and which firms are dependable and reputable. I would like a firm that is either 0 up front or 5k up front. A firm that allows you to trade at least 50 to 1 leverage. Great training and low turnover rate. 70% to start up to 95% within year. Average commission structure. Payouts no worse than monthly. Thanks for the insight and again this forum is very productive. Prosperity for all!
