Ok, I have a very profitable options system, giving at least 500% p.a., with a DD of about 15%. My problem is this: it needs to be automated using an API like the IB API, this will take about 2 months for development and testing, ie. an investment of about 10k or so just for the automation. I have only a 12k cash acct. I need the above investment and some playmoney (30k or more) for a margin acct to overcome the PDT rules. What "options" do I have?
