Looking for a prop trading firm


I have been trading forex for over 2 years now. Due to my age I'm still at school studying, so I dont have very much time for full time physical presence job. Therefore I dont have a big trading account which I could live off, but it is steadily growing.

Main reason I'm posting this here is the mass of information about the prop trading firms. I would like to find what are secure firm to start. Ive heard that Integra and Tower Hill are recommended.
What would you recommend?

I live in a country that fits London session and US session nicely into my day. I would not like to pay more than 1 000 dollars in deposit or data in month. Preferably I would like forex and equities.

All recommendations and proposals are welcome.( I have looked into lots of forums and lots of hesitations in my head to serve the main point of my post)

I would recommend topsteptrader, they will back you if you pass one of their combines. There's another Estonian trader on futures.io (formerly BMT), lemons, who recently got funded. I'm guessing that there aren't any prop firms in Estonia, like with a physical office with traders in it. If possible, I would recommend becoming a trainee at such a place if they got a solid rep and good history of being profitable, because you receive professional training and guidance, and you are surrounded by other pros so its a good environment. I think thats the most value you get from a prop firm, not the backing.

Understanding yourself is just as important as understanding markets.
