  1. MVP


    Funny but true...

    1. We will teach you how to trade.
    2. Our systems rarely ever go down.
    3. Our traders are the most successful on the street because of our firm.
    4. Our owners are traders who will show you profitable trading techniques.
    5. Our seminar teaches you how to trade today's markets.
    6. A lifetime fee of $1000 to get continuing education is a pretty fair price.
    7. This is not meant to be a sales pitch...
    8. ... the firm's performance for those trained speaks for itself...
    9. ... the firm will do their best to keep your costs fair...
    10. ... our firm will maintain the latest technology...
  2. heh heh
  3. Everyone is making money doing proprietary strategies and trading big volume EXCEPT YOU, so get your Ass moving and join the rest of us!
  4. I heard almost all of those same lines from Mr. Keller at echotrade.
  5. Don't worry about the commission! It's not that big of a deal!


    1) "After company expenses, we don't make as much money as you think."

    2) My personal favorite..."We don't really make any money off the ECN charges."

    This is a good thread for a friday in August.:) :cool: :p :D
  7. Funny stuff.

    True, there is a lot of crap in this business but I actually am happy that I trade with a prop firm.

    I used to be a ticket broker and my friends in the trading field joke whether or not I moved UP or DOWN on the "shady" career ladder.

    I personally think ticket scalpers are a little higher up. LOL.

  8. As a prop trader, I can say that MVP's no.1, no.2 and maybe no.9 are so true! VOLUME'S no. 1 is also so very true. Funny and true thread!!
  9. "we are financially solid"
  10. axehawk


    "You should WANT to give us a $25,000 capital contribution so you can get a 100% payout."
