Yes I have heard of these guys. I know them to treat people well and have a good graduate programme. They are one of the few firms that don't throw mud on the wall and see what sticks !

It's just not right. He got rejected...he should take it like a man and not cry about it; posting the emails on here....very childish in my opinion....

I have an offer from Saxon-Madrid, and have some questions:

-Is it usual to have a self-employed contract with 40% split of profits?

-What info is supposed to be in the 'Fee Schedule'

40%???? think it's 50/50 in London

Fee Schedule will PROBABLY contain something like the following:

Level 1 - X amount in account => 50% split of profit

Level 2 - Y>X amount in account => 60% split of profit

Level 3 - Z>Y amount in account => 70% split of profit

etc etc probably with an increasing or decreasing desk fee structure

best of luck over there, scalp that market clean......

I think deals vary from 20% to 70% depending on whether you are putting your own money down or taking a salary. 40% seems fair enough. Best of Luck.

Thanks to both.

I also have another question:

-this 40/60 is after the deduction of Desk fees and trading costs...
as usual?

So you think is a good op?

I'm an IT prof, and have other offers in IT about 25k / year

If they've offered you something, I'd take it, I wouldn't think twice - much more exciting than IT and much more lucrative if you're committed to trading.

If you are scalping the market you are only gonna get a few ticks. If you are only starting on a few contracts it's gonna be very hard to break even each month with the desk fees. I say do this job if you have traded before and know you can make money. Or if you have a bit of cash already and have some money to fall back on....that is just my personal opinion..

Best of luck

Do I have this right....

You put up YOUR own money, you pay THEM for the desk, then THEY take a cut of YOUR profit?

I hope I have misunderstood this.
