Hello, I plan on trading equities through tradestation, where I already have a futures account. What advantages would a prop shop have over tradestation, or any retail account in general? I'm willing to do 10k with prop or 30k with tradestation. Prop not SIPC insured I think. My trading strategy would require me to hold positions for a few hours or days. When you take strategies, overnight position, commish, or any other fees into consideration what would be the better choice? oh, and Assent is the only prop I know of in the los angeles area. Thanks for the feedback.
