Being cautious by nature, I'm am wary of scam artists in the prop industry (which I'm told is rife with them). I'm particularly suspicious of prop firms that that offer you to come trade their capital (with no money up...they are making money off of you via commissions and keeping a portion of your profits)...but want to charge you between one and several thousands of dollars for their "training". I'm particularly wary of firms that make buying this training mandatory. Not to sound naive but, if they're willing to invest in you and basically be partners with you, shouldn't this training be free? My questions are...are these training courses worth the expense? Perhaps I'm being overly paranoid but are there firms whose primary aim is to sell their training classes. Do most prop firms offer (or require) fee-based training courses? Which firms offer valuable and worth-the-expense training? I'd appreciate any and all responses.
