This may be a long shot, but I'd like to throw this out there. I come from a prop background that focuses on scalping, and I'm looking to move to swing trading. I know scalping is great for some, but it definitely does not fit my personality. A few years of this and I am exhausted. The problem is, I need leverage, and I am not interested in putting anything more than 5k down, if that even. Does anyone know of firms out there that offer the ability to hold trades for several days on top of day trading, without forcing compliance with the pdt rule? AND that offer good leverage? The leverage I had previously was $250,000, but I could probably do with $150,000 without problems. My previous deal granted me .004/share on 95% payout, which is decent. I'd be fine with an increase in rates since I expect to be doing less than my normal 70,000 shares a day (hopefully). Basically I just want some more freedom to branch out to different styles without having to contribute an exorbitant amount of capital.
