Hello everyone, I have been trading on a part-time basis for about 1 year, and I enjoy the trading so much that I'm seriously considering becoming a prop trader. From reading through many posts here, it appears as if the career path of prop trading is a tough one and not many survive for more than a few months. Although I won't say I'm the exception, but I think I have the right personality/demeanor to be a successful trader, and I want to give it a shot full-time. For a beginner, what kind of capital is typically required to work out a deal where I can pay all the fees but keep all the profits I make? What kind of leverage/buying power can I typically negotiate if I'm willing to put up, let's say 5k, 10k, 20k, or even 50k? What are some of the common fees that I'm expected to pay as a prop trader on a monthly basis? Thank you very much for your help.
