    it will be interesting if someone (like Don ) can tell us how many trader join by year and how many stay, how much they made....
    Thanks
     
  2. the answer is everyone makes millions!!!
     
  3. Do your own research, Good or bad

    Are you expecting people to openly discuss their business intersts with you in public forum :confused:
     
  4. perfectly decent question,

    You should ask people who work at prop firms instead of the CEOs :)

    I'm thinking maybe 25% make decent money 5k-10k a month
    5% make good money 20k+ a month
    3% make great money 40k-100k a month

    The rest 70% are all pikers

    so "the rest" doesn t stay !! the turn over should be crazy !!
     
  6. What about that last -3%?
     
  7. "fuzzy math" is CoolWhip's specialty.

    Just a sampling of our teen trader's prowess. Therefore, it is a safe assumption he is talking out his arse about prop trading statistics as well.

    Don has been asked this question before and has posted stats, you'll have to search for them.
