There's nothing record setting there. Statistical Arbitrage Trader Gelber Group 7 reviews.
Upon successfully advancing to level 4 of our Trader Advancement Table, the trader is then eligible to become a true professional trader with a funded account at our preferred trading firm.
This is what is called Phase III: This in effect makes the entire program free for those who progress. Monthly trading profit checks are dispersed each month following the one in which they were generated.
As an example, profits earned during the month of January would be paid no later than the 20th of February. However, this increase will always be granted based on your trading performance. In our structured program, the professional trader in Phase III earns greater and greater exposure to more capital. As most traders know, the bigger the buying power, the bigger the potential profits. This extra potential is earned via "consistency" more than anything else.
Some traders have developed a consistency that fosters very few losing days during each month, with account swings that are nearly nonexistent. I love the program being offered at iFundTraders, but I can't trade full-time at the moment.
Can I become a part-time iFundTraders student? Part-time traders often grow into some of our best traders.
First of all, their growth and development as professional traders happen in smaller, more digestible periods. Secondly, the lessons learned are steady and the part-time nature of their trading reduces the risk of being overloaded and overwhelmed with too much at one time. Some of the best full-time traders today began as part-time traders first.
Is there an additional fee for retaking the training provided by iFundTraders? As iFundTraders students, you will be allowed to retake all the education provided free of charge. There is never an additional fee for education, which makes our program very powerful and forever rewarding. In fact, iFundTraders encourages traders to take the full training program no less than three times. Some have taken it as many as five times.
Once you fully graduate and are inducted into our trading organization as a professional trader, you are a part of our family of traders. Your education and nurturing will never end as iFundTraders will continue to mentor you for as long it takes to make you a more successful trader. Access to the iFT Online Trading Room, where we discuss, train, and educate traders daily, on how to consistently pull profits from the markets, in a real live market environment.

Was wondering if there were others out there doing something similar to me and what kind of experiences you guys have had. It seems that most in this sub trade in a retail account so I didn't know if there were others like me. You are right that most are now market makers and algorithmic trading, but discretionary shops do still exist. I applied to over 50 until I finally found one that matched my criteria. They definitely don't advertise, but you can easily find a list of all the major firms with a quick google search.
Start there, research the companies and their deals, then apply. I work as a data analyst at a big corporation and think analzying market data is waste of time. Good guess--not SIG but a similar one, less well known but just as successful, and more focused on discretionary trading than SIG. Firms are now heavily quantitative due to the growing of algorithmic trading, but as a discretionary trader you really don't need the math background. I think they really only want quantitative minds, no matter the position.
Would if I could I've already forwarded the resumes of three of my friends, none of which got the position. It's pretty difficult to get an interview in the first place. Your best bet is to apply to every single firm you can find in Chicago, NY, CT, wherever you can find them.
You'll get interviews, and from there you can research which ones offer a good deal. If I could give any advice, it would be to find your own edge I do not like Prop firms for FX, due to leverage being available for retail traders at any broker.
This is just my personal opinion, because time spent trying to find a good one could be spent making your self successful. I respect that opinion.
Yes, it does take a long time to find one that is worth it. But once you do, I believe it is very much worth it. Not only am I surrounded by incredible technology, miniscule spreads, and unlimited capital, but I'm also surrounded by some of the best discretionary traders in the world I'm pretty new, not yet proven successful over an extended period. This sped up my learning curve immensely. To each his own though. Glad you could find success in your own retail account. So my question is, do you have any plans to leave and go on your own in the near future?
It just seems weird that anyone would stay there very long when you can set up your own shop and pull in your own profits and keep them all. I mean, nobody likes being someone else's bitch when you don't have to. Especially since miniscule spreads and large capital aren't hard to come by when you have a long term successful trading record. I've known ppl who were great traders at banks etc buy failed miserably on their own and vice versa. I also just can't comprehend why those that have the capital go would go the route of a prop firm over more of a traditional hedge fund model.
I guess if you could put down enough margin to trade 10m and a prop firm could give you twice that and split the profit I'm sure it would depend on the rules the prop firm institutes. But in general I would think so.
No, I don't plan on leaving anytime soon. I'm recently out of college, hugely in debt, and wouldn't be able to trade my own account yet because I simply do not have the capital. I don't think anyone at the firm feels like anyone's bitch, because the payouts are huge and we have a very good base salary to live off of during the year until we get our end of year bonus. To add to this, we can trade our OWN account on the side if we please.
I see no reason to stop trading prop and neither do the other veteran traders because the technology and spreads are unbeatable plus, like I said, we can trade our own retail accounts on the side. It is also very helpful to be surrounded by other successful traders instead of sitting in your own house alone. The people that I work with are very intelligent, and for this I was able to become profitable in only 3.
If you were able to become successful trading in a retail account then congratulations, it is good to hear that there are people out there that can.
