I know a guy who trades for SMB, he went in not knowing much about trading at all, granted he was extremely bright and a outstanding student from a top 20 University and now he is a consistently profitable trader at SMB, they now offer there training to outside traders for a fee of $5k. Is any training program worth that much? Especially when you have no chance of getting a job with that firm when your done, all your doing is paying them to train you. Then you have to turn around a put another $5k or more down with a prop firm to actually begin trading. I just want to know is this a good move?
