i was wondering if you could give me some feedback. i am scheduled to renew my CTA in September of 2004. But the problem is that I just don't know if I want to remain a CTA WHY? here are a couple reasons. 1)i really don't like trading for lots of other people 2)the fewer people who know my profit status, the less pressure I put on myself. When I put lots of pressure on myself, I don't trade as well. 3)IF Im really sucessful, then why trade other peoples money. Trade more of my own money. Likewise if Im not sucessful, then im not going to have any customers anyway. 4)i could really eliminate alot of paperwork and bookwork for the NFA and CFTC plus it costs about a $1,000 a year. are there any other obvious reason to be or not to be a CTA. Any reasons why you haven't become a CTA.
