Hello All, First post here and thought i'd be the devils advocate. I'm sure many on this board have similar questions. I spoke to a few props which required capital contribution, offer no real training, and require you to sign a non-compete agreement. Now this is absurd to me - why should we and why would a prop firm require us to sign a non-compete which restricts us from working for another prop for x years if we paid a deposit and they don't provide any training? If someone has to close their account due to poor performance, they have to refrain from prop trading for x years altogether? That doesn't really sound fair... Also, how in the world would a prop firm know if we started prop trading elsewhere? Do they stalk their ex-traders? Maybe someone can shed some light? I know many prop firm owners read this forum (i.e. Don Bright), so maybe you guys can shed some light.
