    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Tower Hill Trading full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -You are free to trade any style/strategy. They start you with 1-5 shares, so it is an experimenting period as you progress to bigger size.
    -Access to Takion.
    -Work remotely or from office.

    This was a great experience. I have learned so much in the screen time I had here. Although I never became profitable, I would have never lasted the amount of time to learn the markets if I opened a retail account.

    Cons

    -Very limited training, but possibly a good thing because you need to find your own way in the end.
    -No mentoring.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunity to trade here. I am grateful in all the knowledge I have learned in my time here. I would only suggest to meet with traders periodically to help guide them along their path.
