About Maverick Trading
As one of the best proprietary trading firms in the industry, Maverick Trading offers its traders comprehensive training, extensive support and mentoring, and substantial capital. Unlike a common day trading firm, Maverick Trading is noted as a top swing and position trading firm (holding positions from a few days to a few months). This time horizon allows the firm to offer its traders flexible hours and the ability to start part-time and transition into full-time trading. Prop trading is a mentally engaging, challenging profession where diligence and consistency translate directly into financial reward. In other words, this is truly meaningful work. The firms traders have the opportunity to practice their craft from anywhere in the world via high-speed internet. Started in 1997, Maverick Trading is one of the most experienced prop trading firms and is ranked as one of the top trading companies in the industry, accepting and funding experienced traders as well as teaching motivated people from all backgrounds how to become traders. The firms management and coaches have seen and profited from multiple bull and bear markets. The firms extensive training program is designed to teach people how to profit in all market conditions and its support and mentoring program keeps traders focused on changing market conditions and risk management. As a result of a long track record of success, the firm has the capital to back and fund its traders with meaningful amounts of capital. Each trader starts live trading with a minimum of a $25,000 account and keeps 70% to 80% of trading profits. As you gain experience and demonstrate consistent profitability you become eligible for greater amounts of the firms capital. Our top traders can trade up to $800,000.
Ideal applicants should have math/finance/business backgrounds (or comparable skills). Trading or investing experience is a plus, however diligence and a commitment to master the firms trading methodology and risk management guidelines outweigh background and experience.
