Starting at Echo vs. WorldCo

  1. Worldco allows remote trading but I believe you have to trade in-office for some time first and show that you're profitable. Not sure how long though.

  2. Worldco is not too keen on letting traders go remote. They want to see a lot of profit or a capital deposit in your account - $25K is the number I heard, but everything is negotiable.

  5. Bryan,

    Lynx Capital Partners, LLC is part of the Andover organization as a sub-LLC. It is the largest listed prop desk with Andover from what I understand.

    Needless to say, the owners of Lynx are very tight with the CEO of Andover.

    Lynx Capital just opened their West Coast office in San Diego. If you need any information, you know where to find me. We have retail accounts also if you have any concerns about participating in an LLC.

    what is YOUR firm? Echo or Andover? Did you make the switch from Echo to Andover, as did Jonathan Kirkland? If yes, any feedback (e.g. rationale, comparison, etc.) is appreciated.

    I'm at Lynx which clears through Andover. I won't comment on ECHO anymore but am happy on the move so far
