Ok somebody make the case for me. I put my money up to trade and get more leverage. Sounds terrific, however the more leverage, the more the loss. Obviously if you are starting with limited funds to begin with and most traders do when they go to a prop firm then leverage is ultimately the source of their demise as they are overleveraged and often pushed to trade VOLUME for the prop. firm. I would be particularly interested in turnover rates at many prop. firms. To me if the turnover rate is high then basically it's a slow bleed to the death for a newbie. If their are any prop traders out there with more than 5 years of experience let us know the positive aspects please.
