Pros

Freedom. Opportunity. Fair compensation. Quick, top of the line computer equipment / platforms. Friendly work atmosphere. Knowledgeable, helpful staff and managers.

Cons

Independent trading is a very tough business to be successful in. Avatar (like all trading companies) can only do so much to help. Their fee structure, while consistent with industry standards, adds up quickly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not to much feedback. Management was very honest and open about the difficulties of the business, and made no promises.

    Pros

    Perfect company for being a proprietary trader. Excellent location, office, environment and management team. Senior management team and other traders are willing to help in both your account issues and your trading.

    Cons

    I was trading at Avatar for a few year and I did not find any mayor cons. Management team was extremely helpful at all times. It was a pleasure working there.
