Hello all. Recently I got an offer from my local Bright office to sign on as an assistant trader/intern w/ the possiblity of getting backed. The backing would be a 50/50 split tops if I put up 0 capital from what I understood. Possibly higher. However nothing is guaranteed. My question is how should I prep this summer so I can make sure I get backed. I have 13K to trade w/ so I was wondering if I should a. Trade the emini (one contract only) b. Save my money, and paper trade and learn how to tape read. I guess tape reading is big at bright c. Do nothing. Have fun. d. Join the internship early and get a jump start. e. Trade some other instrument to get experience If I trade the emini and do well, I might get enough cash to just enter as a customer. Then I wouldn't have to worry about backing. Any advice is appreciated. I have a book on tape reading already and I know about the tape reading threads on elite. I just want to make this thing work b/c it is my best shot at succeeding.
