Hi all, I was recently ofered a positioned with a bank pro desk where they povide the capital, leverage, low commission and 50/0 split. I was thinking about going the self funded prop route. When comparing the 2 roles prop vs Pro I have to ask: Is there really a difference? If you think about it they are not so different.While true prop firms don't require capital they typically hold back a percentage of gross profits in a seperate account to ensure you don't do something irresponsible with your capital. Often the limits are far above what you would deposit at a prop firm. For that increased deposit you get much less margin and BP as a result. I'll acknowledge that commissions are considerably lower but when you work out the different between profit splits i.e. 70/30 vs 50/50 it more than mkes up for the difference. Perhaps the difference really comes down to losses. When your capital is gone at these arcades so are you. A true proprietary desk expects of months i imagine. Also as many don't have the ability to self fud the $25k and 6 months living expenses the 50/50 with no capital is a better path. any one else have thoughts? Perhaps I am mising something else?
