I've been trading for 3 years now (retail) with Ameritrade now with IB. My performance is mediocre but has improved overtime and continue improving. I am thinking opening an account with Prop firm here in San Francisco Bay Area and trade 6:30-10:30 AM PACIFIC time the n head to work around 11 AM. I will follow the plan above for about 2 months then I would like to trade remotely from home and there will be no time limitations after that. Question: -What do you of my plan joining a prop for the purpose of LEARNING, margin. -Will prop require me number of trades each day? -Can I hold positions overnight? -Any props in the EAST Bay?
