    Had an interview with this shop at the beginning of the week. Got the standard info that you would get from most prop shops : said they had a good trading platform, trading firm capital, they gave me decent starting line and said that if I do well with that line they will move it up.

    I just want to know if anyone on this board has any info about this firm, and if I should know about them before signing up to trade their capital.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just wondering if this was in toronto ??

    Getting in prop at a bank is not that easy so I would probably take that opportunity. They likely have some succesful traders who you could learn from.
  3. I agree. We're talking about Royal Bank right?

    I believe he is speaking about RBC Carlin. Which is competely different from RBC Capital Markets prop desk.
    I had an interview with them, met with David Abramson real nice guy. They have a real nice setup in NYC, a bunch of good traders. Overall a nice firm, their fees seemed a little high and I think their split was 60/40 for the trader. I was going to trade there but end up getting a job at Lehman. But if I end up ever going prop on my own, they will probably be were I will go.

    Yes, RBC Carlin the office on 666 Third Ave.

    The 60/40 firm capital deal is what I was offered. The deal seemed pretty consistent with what is out there at other places. I just want to know if anyone has any experience with the management and the trading systems, and if there is anything I should be aware of before signing up.

    Wow. .015/share is AWFULLY high even if it is someone else's money you are trading with. It appears they don't want you to make a living but to just churn it and make commission.
