Is Bob still at Zone?
I worked there for a spell, I can tell anybody they want to know.
You can trade however you want, you can make one trade a day if you want. However, here's the catch: if you can't trade profitably, you will quit or get canned. If you can trade well, you can walk in butt naked and nobody's going to say a word.
Since most people think they can trade better than they do...i.e. profitably, they come up with this "I don't want to daytrade, I'm more of a Swing Trader" crap. Lose that attitude or you ain't gonna make it. Be like clay, and let a succesful trader show you how to do it. If your coach trades 300K shares a day and brings home 400 Grand, just shut your hole and try to learn something.
That is the biggest reason people don't make it. They get paired with a coach that MAKES MONEY, and there are a couple of guys bringing home 800K a year, and then they decide there gonna try and do things THEIR OWN way without knowing squat. These people quit fast when they find out they can't make a paycheck. The second biggest reason why people don't make it is because they just don't "get it". Not everybody is cut out to be a big money trader, or even someone who can make a living out of it. Hey, I want to flap my arms and fly too, been dreaming of it since I was a kid. Ain't gonna happen.
Kershner is the only Prop in town, true Prop. I wasn't a big fan of them when I left, and they did piss off a few traders, but I'll bet that half of you would like their integrity. They may be a bit goofy, but they're honest.
Anyone heard about them - good, bad or ugly would like to know.
They are expanding from what I heard with an operation over in Singapore (and trying to get traders to go over there if they want).
Do you know anything about their Austin office? What is the split like? Know anyone who worked there?
Just go call Chrissy. She should be more comfortable now
care to enlighten?
Thanks Robbie..Shanghi not Singapore..with HK opening soon..
HK would be nice for a few months for a change of pace.
Like I said in an earlier post: Chrissy was quite short with me, however I feel that it came from an unfamiliarity with the territory.
It was on the edge of being unprofessional. She had only been there a few months, though.
