Hi I want to find out more about this firm. I have been made an offer to learn to trade with them. They are in Surrey / London. They told me Macfutures clear them and help them with training. They told me circa 70% of their trainees succeed. What concerns me is that they would not be specific about what people in their office are making. The guy just said he has no idea and would have to work it out. This strikes me as highly evasive. It makes me want to run. Also they pay little for the first 6 months followed by nothing. This seems to be standard in the industry. It is possible for someone trading to be significantly profitable but still not make any money after fees. So I wonder if anyone here has any idea. I would suspect that Saxon and Macfutures and other similar firms have the same model. I dont doubt that some of Futex's former trainees are making money but how much ? Could someone also answer why in prop firms if they have a good morning or whatever they go home in the afternoon - surely it makes sense to keep going (as long as they keep emotions in check) (and have nothing better to do). I am more afraid of the people who run these firms than I am of the market. But I am naturally inclined towards rabid paranoia and I dont want a good opportunity to go to waste. Comments appreciated - no matter how banal !
