    Does anyone know what kind of deals are out there (preferably london) for day traders that want to rent desks and trade on eurex?

    Is it worth doing it with full personal capital? I've heard rumours that there are proprietary trading firms out there with deals of 60/40 or even 70/30?

    Is it hard finding trading desks in london or is it basically once you pay you play?

    kind regards
  2. once you pay you play, not hard to find at all. Never been hard to get a chance to burn a lot of money. You are looking at 2000 pound/ month in desk fees and such .

    if you are looking for a no money down deal, it's more difficult, of course.

    I checked some of the firms websites of the website above, does anyone have any experience with the above and what kind of deals are out there for eurex traders?

    anyone getting better than 50/50 on a no money down deal?
  4. Have heard good things about Saxon and another crowd called Atlas Futures (, who aren't on the LIFFE bureaux list. Both through direct contacts at each firm respectively.

    Doubt you'll get better than 50/50 on a no money down deal.

    Have you much trading experience?
