I've been trading interest rate futures part-time for my own account for the last four years. I have averaged an 85% return per year. My account balance is small (around 10-12K). Instead of allowing it to compound, I have been taking money out as I have made it. I now have the confidence to start doing this full-time. My limited capital would make it impossible for me to make enough.. What would be the best way to take my trading to a level where I could make a living at it? I am not a daytrader. I am not a technician. I sell when I think prices are too high and buy when they're low. I've averaged about 25-30 round trip trades in these past four years. I had talks w/a prop firm in Chicago. They kinda offered a position where I could trade their capital, drawing a 25K salary and keeping 50% of the profits. However, they wanted me to trade like they do - in and out of positions, w/nothing overnight. I told them I didn't think I was their guy.
