  5. Join us tomorrow in will actually be a better evening...we got stuck next to a bunch of loud obnoxious partyers for quite a while last night, LOL.

    El Torito Mexican Cantina - Near San Francisco September 17.
    1590 Bayshore Hwy, Burlingame, CA 94010 (650) 692.3113

    See you there around 5:30 or 6....

  6. i would sign up today with you guys if you were competitive with the canadian firms. i know it's not your fault but isn't it sad we have to outsource when we would prefer going with a US firm?
  7. In BC only...the other Provinces don't allow US firms. Bummer..

  8. I am in the US. when i say compete w/canadian firms, i mean with their 'model'. i assume (please correct me if i am wrong) US firms can not compete due to certain 'fixed' costs or fees that the canadian firms do not have to pay.

    canadian model:
    20 cents per thousand shares and a 70% to 80% profit split, small deposit
  9. :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

    anyone? why do the US firms not compete? i'm thinking the SEC is going to step in and end this opportunity for US traders.

    There were some "deals" made with Clearing firms that allowed for what amounts to "data processing" by ticket per stock symbol per day in Canada. Those "deals" are not available here in the U.S. My friend Charles Kim (co-owner of Swift) explained the whole thing to me years ago when he came to Vegas to attend our training. Their business model is very different from U.S. trading firm models. I don't feel comfortable posting all the details, suffice it to say that Mr. Kim sends many traders to Bright Trading after a year or so when the trader wants to move into a long term career.

    On the other hand, we are doing very well in BC. The other Provinces simply do not allow U.S. firms. Even my friends at RBC Carlin cannot operate there...and they're owned (were) by a Canadian Bank.

    (and, yes, there are many more fixed costs in the U.S.)

    All the best,
