    I applied to a prop firm with great reviews. I got an email back asking to submit 3 years of performance. I replied that I only had 16 months but I think he would be impressed. He said they are pretty strict with the 3 year rule but if its good he will take a look. I made charts and graphs and dresesd it up nice. I was thinking I submitted it with my monthly statements with all my trades. I have no special system but I do use a formula that I stick with. Should I have darkened out the trades but left the P&L? I wouldn't expect them to steal my way of trading but this is the first prop firm I applied to. Would they want to see all of my trades or should I have left some of it out? Thanks for any advice. Ill know what to do if I apply to another prop firm.

    What is the name of the firm? Is it traditional prop where they back all their traders, or a JBO Member firm requiring a deposit?

    Sounds like there's a discretionary element to your strategy. That being the case, I wouldn't worry too much about them stealing your system. You put two traders on the same system and you'll get 2 different results. I've yet to see a pure black box that doesn't have to be adjusted for changing market conditions.
