    Hi everyone,

    I have been involved in the markets for some time, but have never educated myself with regards to prop trading firms.

    My question is, does such a thing as a prop firm that extends overnight capital exist? My trading, which is a fusion of technical, fundamental and sentiment analysis, has generated some pretty solid low-volatility numbers, but the rub is my holding period is several days to several weeks, and I am starting to look at ways of building my trading capital.

  2. We tend to slow our traders down at about 30 to one (hedged) overnight. Maybe 5 or 10 to one "naked" (dependng on the trader, case by case basis).
