Hi, Are there any trading firms where someone can put up their own capital and pay for training and a desk and be somewhat independent? I've been following the markets for a few years now, lost in fantasy stock trading and real-life trading, but I have also learned a lot and come back more determined each time to succeed. I'm 26 y/o, and investing part of my pay into my IRA and personal trading account and down the road I want to get serious and day trade. I don't have the illusion of getting rich quick, but I love it and I can see myself over time getting good at it. In a nutshell, any helpful suggestions would be appreciated. I'm starting out and love the world of investments; I know it's a high-stress profession, but when you do what you love for work, you won't work a day in your life, so to speak. I know also to trade out of one's home or whatever you need at least $25k in cash. Thanks again!!
