This is a poll in response to this thread http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=23157 on the discussion of 0 commission low payout vs some commission high payout. the spreadsheet that helps you decide which is better for you is here. Plug your own numbers in there, but leave, for the sake of the last thread, the payout for 0 commission at 30% http://www.elitetrader.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&pstid=347658#post347658 Please vote on which payout structure would suit you best. Please vote only after you have checked the spreadsheet, I will not vote. Also, please post here your findings. I am also interested in people's break even ratio's vs actual ratios. Let all of us prop traders use this tread as a good research tool. Moreover, if you are a loosing prop trader - look to see whether you can actually make money if you're not paying commision Those who are not familiar with some terms in the spreadsheet, feel free to ask in the board - so there will be a good FAQ, if necessery.
