    Do prop who trading stocks use very high leverage? I feel the profit is so tiny that without leverage it is very hard to make a living.
  2. it shows you are a member since 2002, so i'm suprised you are asking this question. actually i applaud your honesty.

    depends on how you define high leverage, 25-1? 50-1?, yes

    yes. but leverage should only be used if you are already a consistent trader. otherwise it can dangerous. If you can make money on 1:1, then adding leverage should increase the money you make. good luck
