I am now with ETG, and with Schonfeld purchasing them I have the option of staying and trading with Schonfeld (or Opus) or switching firms and joining Carlin. Not really too happy with either firm, Both want to keep my capital for 1 year, which is BS since I do not have that with ETG now. Schonfeld will only pay out 90% and Carlin 95%. Each will only give 10:1 leverage. Seems like there really is not much of reason to trade with either of these guys. Leverage sucks, although it is better that retail I guess, but trade off is, a lock on my capital. So, my questions is what are some real world experiences with these firms. I know I can search the archives, but I am looking for some current information not stuff that is months or years old. Any suggestions?
