    Just looking for some estimates, what do the top 10% of proprietary traders make, thanks for any responses.
  2. which year? Guys who made 10Mill in 1999 might have lost 2 mill in 2002.......Top grinders might have made 1mill both years.
  3. Prop traders are at differnet levels, most of them lose money.
    They have that shit series 7 don't make them differnet

    I have no idea what top 10 % make, and can't gauge my performance against them, because i will be trading riskier
  4. The point is: it DEPENDS.

    I like to think that top traders have consistency. How much do they make? I believe it is over quarter of a million a year.
    That is from my experience.
