Maverick Trading, established in 1997, is an award-winning trading firm that focuses primarily on equities, equity options and index options. We welcome new trading associates who are trainable, committed, success-driven, and want to trade as a career with us, using our capital.
Maverick is structured to create successful and consistently profitable traders by providing a positive trading environment. Maverick will provide you with proprietary tools, specific rule-based tactics and methodologies, live and recorded online training, coaching, and mentoring. Most of our traders trade remotely, in locations of their choosing on a part-time to full-time basis, enjoying the lifestyle of a trader. A college degree or prior trading experience may be helpful, but not necessary. Our risk controls and trading strategies foster trading discipline and confidence in our traders.
Our traders keep the vast majority of the profits that they generate.
Maverick and its traders have completely aligned goals for success. When you reach the level of Elite Trader, you will be trading with enough capital to potentially earn over $100,000 per year. Our Capital Sharing Program (see table below) is an innovation in our industry that allows our associates to significantly increase their leverage without the risk normally associated with such a benefit.

I have been working at Maverick Trading full-time (More than 3 years)
I've been in and out of the prop industry for over 15 years now and most of the firms I used to know have either closed or merged with the others. I chose Maverick as they have basically run as an independent firm and taken care of their traders for the long term. They are very upfront with the costs of trading and are very available when you need them. Fast payout on profits only take 1 day.
TWS software isn't my favorite platform I've traded on but the costs of data feeds are 10% of what I paid on sterling and laser
Advice to Management
I applied online. I interviewed at Maverick Trading (Clearwater, FL) in May 2017.
Prompt return communication and readily accessed questions. Had a few extra forms to fill out, but it does not take too much time. The website interview was only the first step, and make time to watch a 45 minute video presentation
