Hey Guys, Just a quick question. I'm looking for a reputable broker that is located overseas. According to what I've read, the regulatory climate for prop traders is going to wreak havoc on trading firms. I'm not really sure if going overseas is the only viable option left, but it does seem to me like big government is pushing it in that direction in order to avoid having to deal with prop firms. If, as I've read on WSJ and other sites, credit-line requirements and more is coming and I really don't feel like jeopardizing my privacy and security just to have "over-sight" which doesn't even include insurance or any protection of capital. They are claiming that all these rules are to protect us from ourselves, which is nothing but hogwash. I've been with a few local props. Right now I'm with WTS but my lockup period has expired and I'm thinking of going off-shore to avoid having to deal with the mess that occurs when shit hits the fan. The way I see it, the oversight doesn't matter which. Either way, there is no insurance and all the additional regulatory costs associated with US prop firms, makes it more expensive for the firm and for the trader at the same time. The leverage I need is simply not available in retail accounts that require 25k to daytrade. Right now, I have up 10k at WTS. I understand that despite the lower operating costs, international firms are still harder to physically get a hold of if something was to happen. Anybody out here able to recommend a reputable firm outside of the US? I understand my money is going to be at more risk, but the only other option I see going forward is the government's idea which is "go along to get along or we'll see you gone." I've contacted Nevis, TM Global Capital, International Brokers, WTS and a few others outside the US. Each is different in terms of who can join/commission structure/etc.. I'm really more interested in finding a reputable firm overseas than trying to deal with the BS that they're trying to push on us over a 5k trading account. I'm interested in hearing Don's opinion and other long-term traders who have been in the industry a while. I've been at it 10 years and never felt this much uncertainty looming in the future. I appreciate the help.
