I have been doing a great deal of research and it seems trading firms are a dime a dozen! and everywhere you go its always the same song and dance. I think it would be beneficial if there was an open house or some type of venue where interested traders could attend without feeling like they are being coerced to join. I am not looking for training or mentor-ship, just have the ability to visit a shop and weigh the benefits. It's all about finding the right fit.
