In chicago amongst the futures community there is a term I use often - "juice firm" "Juice firm" supplies the funds to it's commission producers. Clearly economically viable traders who trade a lot and trade big will be worth to any firm their "weight in gold". economically viable means simply not blow out big, break even. scratch a meager living in odd months. This is repeating itself in the prop firms for stock trading. Food for thought, traders. Who do you trade for ? You or the firm ? Overtrading can make someone rich but it may not be you !!!!
