How difficult can that be ? SLK will let you in for a million deposit. You need some funds to run things like office, software, promotional material. Anyone interested ??? Ideas - how much is the bare minimum cost ? Is timing very bad now ? or is the worst over ? Is any firm up for sale ? How much is the regional membership ? is it needed ? why ? If some guys did echo it has to be some money in it - even more than as a trader solo.
