Hi, I aspire to become a prop trader and am applying to prop firms. They don't really seem to pay much to trainees, but it's something I'd really like to try. The problem is that I have an easy mindless job paying $60k that I'll be throwing in to take a prop position. And if I'm not making money after the trader training (or if I'm crap at the training) I'll be out of a job. Therefore, I now have riskless money from a job I hate. But if I take a prop job I could have no money and be out of a job. Would taking a prop position be recommended in my position? Thanks, Mauzj.
