Hello all. I have recently begun considering trading thru a prop firm. I have virtually no experience with them. I have sifted thru this thread trying to gain some insight. What I've read gives me reason to pause. There seems to be such a wide range of "deals" and many speak of getting ripped off by unsavory firms, etc. I am not looking for specific firm recommendations. Rather I'd appreciate if I could get some feedback about what a "reasonably fair" deal is, in terms: 1. capital contribution and payout percentage 2. leverage 3. commissions and other fees 4. volume requirements or pressure to trade As a point a reference, I had a discussion with a firm that offered 65% of the profits and I didn't have to put up any money. They said I would initially get 2 million dollars in buying power and I would get my payout monthly, assuming profits. I believe commissions on stock was .006 per share. I don't have any point of comparison so I ask, is this a good deal? I would so appreciate any feedback.
