My Experience At A Prop Firm ! For about 2 years now I checked the Forums to see what is going on in the Prop Firm world....it seems that only new folks are asking questions regarding legit Prop firms if there is such a thing as Legit, I have yet to see one. I only wish folks would come in and tell the truth after the interviews or 3 months into the job....isn't this what the forum is about ? That is telling the truth ? Also, any Prop traders making any real money, if so , please let us know. I tried my hands at Prop trading about 12 months ago, it was the worse job I ever had, I was better off selling Kool Aide at the corner of Wall St & Broad, The truth of the matter was that I was conned by the smooth talking Head trader there, yes he sold me a planet in our Milky Way and I bought it, at least i am man enough to state that i tried it and I failed at it....I still love trading but the Prop Industry is nothing more than a legal Racket ! Trading was a joke, " This is your computer, play around with the software ..." Traders or so call Traders...seem to me that they have a lot of emotional issues, I don't think the could function in a real world...folks dress like they just woke up out of bed...we where one block away from the NYSE, the Heart Beat Of America...show some class ! With all the Big Talk about how much money they are making, I found it strange that they couldn't buy breakfast or lunch, I am not looking for a free meal...but, if you are investing in a trader for the next six months, no income ...a firm of 20 traders, what is the big deal to buy lunch for your so call " crew .' I would suggest position trading if you must...anything about scalping , forget it, total waste, you are trading against the Best Traders in The World, The Specialist on the NYSE, if you really think you can compete with the " House " then you are dreaming and I would suggest that you wake up ! I am not here to bash prop frims, but I find them of no use. If you are just leaving college and this is your dream job, please, please try for a real job with real benefits such as a real Trading program at a real firm such as Merrill , Goldman, Morgan, etc.... If someone has a different take on the topic, please share it...and Mods, this is not about bashing Props Firms...it is about speaking about my take on the subject. I am glad I had a shot at it...I failed, all that glitters is not Gold !
