I have been working at Tower Hill Trading as a contractor for more than a yearPros
-No capital contribution. This is huge. It means guys that wouldn't have a chance to try trading because of the monetary cost can give it a shot here.
-Live trading. You are exposed to markets right away. You start live trading within a month. You WILL learn what it means to trade US cash equities because that's what you'll be doing everyday. You start small, but if you learn to be profitable you can move up in size quickly.
-Freedom and flexibility. You make every decision on what to to buy and sell and when.
-Your success is based on your own effort and ultimately in your own hands. Your results are your own.
-Program and the environment is constantly improving. Communication is improving between traders and also between management and new traders.Cons
You need to know what you are getting into before you start. Don't have false expectations.
-No capital contribution doesn't mean no risk and no cost. Because there is no base salary, you are putting in effort and emotional stress with no pay until you make it.
-Quicker exposure to markets means quicker learning but unfortunately it mean quicker losses. Inexperienced traders will lose money when they start. This is reality. The good news it that your initial losses on small size should be insignificant compared to later gains when you are profitable on larger size.
- Freedom is also the freedom to fail. No one is going to tell you to stop trying your strategy. The burden is on you to figure it out and make money.
-It can be hard to accept failure, but program is all about giving guys the opportunity to try and that's what they accomplished.Positive Outlook
