  1. If you “hire” recent grad and stake him - paying him a percentage of his P/L on top of the commish spread etc., how long does it normally take for him/her to become profitable on a gross basis (before commish) ?

    Also, how big of a hole is average for a guy to dig himself into when trading for the first time.
