Hello everyone. I have been enjoying this site for a while now. A lot of the posters are very knowlegable. I was hoping maybe some of you would take the time to help me with my questions. I have been thinking about giving prop. trading a shot. I had a friend who used to work for Andover and wanted to help me to start there so thru them i got my series 7 and 55. He had to give it up because of needs for more income.(he has family and since he was new he wasnt making much). Since i am in similar situation i was hesitant to start. However i have this burning desire to give it a shot.I have been trading my own account with ok results and have learned a lot about markets. My questions are these. Which firms are better to work for?(i live in Jersey with very close proximity to ny and have a contact at worldco) where do you guys see this business going ? what are my chances of making a living? any answers or suggestions are appreciated.
