Lastly, I'd include here the text of the ad they were running here in the local papers: NOW HIRING U.S. Stock Market Traders Entry Level Positions Must be between 18 and 28 years old Extensive training provided on proven day trading methods. Join the fastest growing Day Trading firm in the world. Unlimited Income based on performance Guaranteed 10K/Month during training [Company Email & website URL] ----- I know that the "unlimited income based on performance" line would be unrealistic for those starting out, and 10K/month translates to around US $200/mo so I know it's not much, but it's better than getting nothing while being trained right? Are there any hidden charges that I have to ask them about, like desk fees, software use, training fees? I know the training should be completely free and there is no buy-in, correct? Thanks in advance to anyone who can enlighten me.
