Proprietary trading is a way that an individual can trade using the trading capital or leverage of a trading firm or brokerage. There are a number of different ways that this is done. Some require securities licenses while others do not. Traditional Prop Trading firms require the series 7 and 55 licenses and allows you to trade a broker-dealers firm capital, whereas hybrid prop trading is generally done in one of two ways. In the first, a group of traders come together to form an LLC, where each member of the LLC has different rights and responsibilities, typically broken into three classes of members: Manager, Investor, and Trader. While this type of Prop Trading does not require a securities license, it is a business relationship where each member's role is defined and the firm's trading capital is cross leveraged. The second type of Prop Trading arrangement is "open" - You become an independent contractor to the trading firm and either put up an earnest money security deposit and trade on the excess leverage or the firm provides you with leverage based on your abilities.
Not with Affinity Trading. Affinity Trading Institute, LLC is not a Proprietary Trading Firm therefore you will not be a Proprietary Trader. What Affinity Trading does is provide you with suggestions on 3rd party CBSX Trading Firms that provide the needed trading services to us and our students/traders. These Affiliates are professional trading firms that we maintain a close relationship with. We make sure to perform strict due diligence on these firms so that you have a reliable and trustworthy place to trade after completing your courses within the trader program. In addition, Affinity Trading maintains numerous redundant relationships so that we can provide reliability and security for members of our trading institute.
No, you are not required to have the series 7 or 55 licenses. However, depending on the type of trading you want to do as well as your country of citizenship, you may need to become registered with the CBSX. Contact us by phone to further discuss if registration will be necessary.
No. Affinity Trading Institute is an educational firm that trains individuals to trade their own accounts or firm capital through a 3rd party CBSX broker. Those that opt to trade firm capital will receive the proper amount depending on their level of performance and experience. As performance improves, the amount of capital provided is increased. Growth and compensation will be determined by the trading firms guidelines and achievement chart.
Yes. Training is recommended and favourably looked upon when looking to trade with a 3rd party proprietary trading firm. The trading education is necessary in order to minimize the potential of trading losses. However, if you are an experienced trader with a proven profitable track record, you may be eligible to trade firm capital with minimal to no education. If that is you, complete the Experienced Trader application.
No. You will be an independent contractor and compensated based on your individual results. You will receive a 1099 at the end of each year with your earnings and the payment of taxes will be your responsibility. The completion of a consulting agreement will be required prior to trading firm capital.
No. When you participate in one of our Trader Programs or you are pre-approved as an experienced professional trader, no risk deposit is necessary. Affinity trading does not accept risk deposits and all trading is done through our trading and brokerage affiliates.
Yes. Learning to trade is often better done in a part-time manner. Trading can be an arduous venture for the new trader. When you learn to trade in a non stressful part-time manner, this reduces the risk of being overloaded and overwhelmed with too much information in a short amount of time. Of course every individual's learning curve is different with some picking up things quicker than others but trading with us can be done in either a Part- or Full-Time basis depending on your abilities, availability and the type of trading you choose such as Intra-day, Scalp or Swing.
