Felt Compelled
I'm as big a skeptic as the next guy and I went into this agreement with Maverick Trading wondering if they would live up to everything they promised. Here is my experience. First off, their trading material is top notch and I loved the fact they required me to write and submit a comprehensive trading plan. Everything's up in my mind but writing it down really forced me to clarify my rules which made me think of why I have/need these rules. Overall, a great experience even though I've been trading for years. Second, once I met their requirements, they funded me as promised with a $25,000 account and the stipulation of capital raises after each consecutive profitable month. It's been a year and I have earned 3 capital raises and now have a trading account with 100K. I have even taken out some profits along the way and they pay out quickly directly to my bank account. Looking forward to more capital.

Honest Company, Poor Support
I've been with Maverick for a little while now and have reached the live trading level. The good news is that the curriculum is good and they back up their word with account funding. However, as a new trader you're really left to your own devices and aren't even allowed to talk to their Broker (Interactive Brokers) directly about specific transactions in your account. So when there are errors or confusion (which is about 50% of the time using IB's Trader Workstation Software), you are really at the mercy of this antiquated software and uncooperative Broker.

I feel that Maverick is willing to support their brokers, yet it seems the staff they have is overextended and can't possibly service the needs of candidates, new traders, and senior traders.

True Pros
Before I joined Maverick Trading I would have rated myself closer to an expert in trading. However, I quickly learned that I was probably closer to an intermediate trader as I was exposed to a completely different way of trading. Maverick's approach is all about statistical analysis and creating an actual trading plan Instead of the "trading" I was doing. I now trade baskets of positions instead on one or two concentrated positions. My risk has been cut significantly and my profits have been steadier. I can now see that before I was simply gambling. Here are the positives:

Superb Training

Great Tools - Their simulator is brilliant

Great Management

Solid firm with great training and coaching.
I have been with Maverick Trading about 2.5 years, and I can’t say enough good things about the firm and the management team behind it. I left a career in finance to pursue my dream of trading with Maverick, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Here is why:

• Hands-on management team and personal one-on-one coaching for every trader.

• Great community of traders: We meet as a firm every Sunday night and throughout the week in live online sessions led by the firm’s management team/instructors. Interactive sessions are also held during the week where we can share trade ideas.

• Flexibility to trade from anywhere. All classes are recorded and made available to traders through their online members’ portal.

• Comprehensive training program: Covers everything from options basics to more advanced options strategies. It definitely takes time to get through the program (incl. demo trading), but it’s great prep and worth it.

• Unlimited potential for growth: Incentives between the firm and its traders are completely aligned. The firm only makes profits when their traders do. Unlike many other prop firms out there, no commissions are charged by the firm (just through the broker, and it’s minimal).

Overall, a solid firm. Would be hard-pressed to find a better environment to trade and should not be overlooked.

Trying to sell market info
I have a small account of 6000 which I trade options with small gains each month to compliment my income.

So I applied for a job at Maverick Trading, hoping to be able to have access to a little bigger fund. Here's what I think:

1) They asked me for $6000 fee (elsewhere on the internet, i read that others only pay $5000). I immediately think of my $6000 trading account I've revealed to them. Alert 1

2) They asked for $199 monthly fee. No trading firm charging employees that. Alert 2

3) Put up $5000 as risk money to have access to $25000 account. Basically, this is my money with margin. Alert 3.

In all, I think the whole point is MT selling some info for $6000, and collect a monthly fee, anything else is bonus for them. How many new traders are gonna be successful trading with 25K margin account? Not a whole lot. And if you're a good trader, you can make money with $11,000. The only reason you come to MT is because you don't have the fund. As in my case, I can't accumulate my fund, so I couldn't have bigger account. Once you are down, if you don't have more risk money, you're done. Losing $11000 just like that isn't worth it. The point is you're still trading on your own, your plan, and this can get Maverick Trading out of a lot of trouble if litigations ever come up.

If you have $11000 laying around, open 11 one-thousand dollar accounts and play with them, if you lose them all, you're still a happier person.

Bumped around for a bit and found a home
I swear ive done it all. Investools, Online Trading Academy, you name it. Spend 10-20K with each group and while I did learn some things I still didn't make any money because of my mistakes. Spent 5K with Maverick and learned more in the first few months than I did with the others. Biggest difference is that its about applied knowledge and you can see live trades as they happen and when they develop. In addition I found I need someone looking over me and hold me accountable when I do stupid things that for some reason I continue to do. Having monthly reviews and metrics to hit on a monthly basis is what I need to keep me in line. The only downside I would say is their trading platform (Trader work station) is not the easiest to use. Other than that I am satisfied and with I found them first

good group
checked out their program for $5000 it is a good deal. there are others out there for cheaper like TST and Alpha 7. All seem to have good education. Maverick has been around a long time and is reputable.

They won't reply to my contacts...
I wonder if Maverick Trading has had some type of setback these past few months?... I'm a former CME floor trader & long-time futures industry veteran seeking prop funding. These reviews make Maverick sounds like a great fit for me - trading from my home-office, options strategies, multiple markets, no commission mark-ups.

Regrettably, they've never replied to my multiple inquires. I completed their online steps, filled out an extensive application, watched their videos, etc. The only contacts I rec'd are auto-replies thanking me for my interest, and saying that someone will reply to me in the next day or so (which never happens). Subsequent attempts to contact them have the same result of an auto-confirm message, but no human follow-up. Not even a request to view my track record.

Also, I had the strong impression from their "auto-recruiting" process that they charge (maybe a few thousand dollars?) for taking their req'd training courses. IMO, if the training courses are a revenue center for them, that diminishes their stated commitment to only profiting from a trader's winning results. The "auto-recruiting" messages implied they felt burdened with the level of training they were taking on and needed up-front compensation.

If they ever follow-up w/ me, I will report back and amend this review.

Top Notch
Cant say enough about the training, support and guys at Maverick. Has already made a difference. I have already taken 15K in profits out and looking forward to the future. Finally, I have confidence that I will make it in this tough business.
