prop shop : first DEMO then LIVE

Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by fluttrader, Dec 4, 2008.

  1. Is it correct that prop shops always require that you start out trading profitable on DEMO before you go LIVE ?
  2. not always the case. depends what kind of package you have with them and whether they see you as a risk from trading their capital or not.

    i know prop firms will sometimes give you demos and trade recorded market data from the past so you can the gist of the hotkeys, software, etc.

    cygroup gave me a demo a few yrs ago before i signed up..
  3. They want you to master their platform.
    They want to see if you can make some $$$.
    They want to see if you are normal. I kid you not. People react very strangely hen they make or break a bundle.
