  2. That's like.. the same as a few retail shops.

    Lightspeed doesn't have a platform fee either:

    Interactive Brokers is even cheaper...

    Something's not legit about this...
  3. i have to pay fixed fees and all this and that for commission that is higher than retail..
  4. 1245


    I'm not clear about what your trying to say. Are so saying this is a good or bad deal? You also can't compare to your own retail account. You can't day trade with $5K.

    BTW, this deal is not legal in the US. If they are set up as a hedge fund or any other customer account that is not a broker dealer, it is a RED flag that they offer 100% payouts. It implies they are making money from marking up commissions which only a broker dealer can do. I would stay away.
  5. a sucker is born.......

  6. :p

    I donno... paying retail commissions for the privilege of busting out an over-leveraged $5k account as I try to make enough to cover my platform fees and expenses each month with a firm that clearly isn't operating within US regulations sounds like a hell of a deal to me.

    Where do I sign up? lol


    Seriously speaking, under-capitalized have better options out there.. even if they can't get hired by a firm who will back them, working other jobs and saving up til you're properly capitalized is a better option than losing $5k trying to pay the bills day-trading.

    And this isn't a 'small traders lose, they just lose' emg style rant either, as I don't think a trader needs a few hundred thousand in their account and an Ivy education to trade for a living... I'm just speaking practically here.
  7. they say 90% lose. They're not talking about people like you and me. They're talking about the guy that can't even make it through the first advertisement.
