    Dear Mr/Ms

    I have been trading mostly preferred stocks on the NYSE via Blackwood Pro for about a 1,5 years. I live in Bulgaria. It is a small south-east European country. I was employed by a trading company, but now I am thinking of trading by my own , with my own capital. I am thinking to invest about 3000$ initially. My average gross PnL for the past 5-6 months is about 3500$-4000$ per month. Now I am looking for an appropriate clearing house that will match my needs. I can send you some information concerning my trading history if necessary. And I want to ask about the commission, payout rate that your company can offer me and whether you provide remote trading. Also will I be given the opportunity to hold any overnight positions.
    Thank you for your time and attention. I am looking forward to hear from you.
