    check out ARB Trading Group. They have divisions world wide and actually come from STIRs market making via spreads. They should fit you well, on top of that they actually survived and got bigger whereas most of the other props either went down the drain or turned into education providers.

    If you already have a 12-month track record, I presume a track record of profitable trading, then you should've accumulated enough trading profit. Why do you still need funding? You are already funding yourself quite adequately. Just keep on making profits and you should be well on your way to enormous wealth.

    If you don't have enough of a track record of profitable trading, then funding companies won't help you.

    Props are not just about funding. You share the tech and the volume tier of the entire group which is in itself a huge advantage

    My account size is small but % profit is good + I want to get some training specially in more complex spreads like between diff markets
    The main problem is most of US firms dont do Asian spreads!

    What would you mean by diff. markets? US market? or markets in different products? If you just want to have training in trading different products in different markets/exchanges around the world, you just need to find brokers that allow you to trade these products and markets, you don't need prop trading companies imo. These prop trading companies are more for funding and raising money which I feel you don't need as you are already able to raise funds just by trading profitably.

    Dawn I think there is a misunderstanding let me clarify
    - Although my trading record is good, my account size is small and hence looking for prop funding so I can trade bigger a/c + access to tools like Synthetic spreaders
    - What I meant is Diff market same product like between say TOCOM/ SGX /Thai exchange etc and for that a prop will have better margin offset capability and the synthetic spread tools
