A friend/colleauge of mine is a succesful trader. He has built out a very unique algo that makes money in stocks most days and goes home flat. Not your typical TA or tape reading or rebate styles found in shops. He offered me the chance to trade his system with my capital and share in the PnL. 25k in the intial account("must have skin in the game"). Firm provides 10-1 intraday. 65/35% split. I pay .005 pershare...he pays .004 so he takes the .001 for data and technology fees, office..etc. He has the complete trading plan, software and risk management in place. All he needs to do is train me on his protocol. I already asked him "why share at all? Just run and gun it with your cap" his answer "I am in the process of automating and it will take awhile to get there 100% so if I can get more eyes on the screen, supply all the proper tools and take a fair split, why not do it. Nobody is taking my data or strat home so I feel safe in allowing a group to participate in my office". I would like to hear some questions that somebody who doesnt know him would ask if offered the same chance. Maybe i`m missing something here? Just want to be really safe. And I prefer being considered a cynic to a sucker. This is NOT a solicitation. No pm`s please.
