Prop Capital Contribution=BP

Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by sobepehopeful, Feb 3, 2010.

  1. When a firm says their "minimum" capital requirement to trade with them is "x" and they will leverage that amount, is it safe to assume you ultimately control your buying power because if you deposit more than the minimum then you will be leveraged at that amount?

    Hope my question makes sense

    Depends on the firm.

    Some will quote a set ratio (20:1 , 50:1), some will give you the BP you need regardless.
