I would appreciate it if anyone who trades or has traded at a futures prop house in London ( MacFutures, STA (schneider), Curvalue, Goldenberg Heymeher, GHF) or option marketmakers(makoglobal,optiver) give me some information about these firms

MAcfutures good, very good....
Optiver, Mako very good

The rest not so good.....

London capital, futex, Saxon etc pay basic salary and offer 50/50 split of profits etc

If u can afford to live on that then go for it.....

varies place to place. Not much but probably better than a student loan.
As you make, you earn more.
varies place to place. Often ask for grads if you haven't got 20k to put up as margin.

Apply to Mako, Macfutres and optiver as they pay a high salary and require tech abilities unlike the prop shops Futex, London Capital etc

PS it's tough to get in so don't be disheartened if you get rejected.

Best of luck with it.
