Hi, I am from Asia and am exploring the idea to move to Chicago to trade CME futures. I would like to live in America and trade from Chicago because of the latency. I will be trading my own account from a brokerage firm. I would like to know if I am able to get a work visa like the "Treaty Traders and Treaty Investors Visas." What is the minimum account size I need to get the work visa? Anyone know of successful individuals who got a work visa not officially sponsored by a firm? Would starting a prop firm in Chicago help me in my application? How long is the application process? Should I pay an immigration consultant to help me apply for the work visa? Thank you all for your time.
