Good afternoon to all, First, many thanks to all for bringing this old fart up to speed with what's going on in 2006. After seeing some old friends who run trading shops and going through some interviews, I'm convinced that the trading world indeed has changed. So much that I'm seriously comtemplating not going the prop equity firm route. So, if you had a 100k account in 2007, what would you do with it? For those who haven't seen my previous posts, I have traded for about 15 years mainly in equities, furtures and spot FX. Not much in the options world but wouldn't mind hearing from some options traders also. My annualized return objectives are somehwere around 25-40% for this trading account. This is my risk account, so I am open to suggestions. Many thanks to all and happy holidays.
