We all know the drop out numbers, from other threads I believe we can agree it's greater than 95% at prop firms. Where do these failed traders end up? It seems any skills learned while prop trading are not recognized by the majority of potential employers outside of other prop firms (most employers won't give a hoot about someone doing 2mm shares/month if they're not hiring you to trade). Just curious to know where failed prop traders end up, is there a natural transition for them to something else? Should newbies start somewhere else besides a prop firm? Some place where the dropout rate isn't as high, suggestions?
