I want to be a prop(proprietary?) trader (I dont really understand what I have to do if I become one) but I want to work for someone rather than being my own. because I am scared (to be honest) I feel good committing royality to someone rather than "trade my way to financial freedom (how strange but its my favorate book title :>)" because I dont feel comfortable with too much freedom...from normal american person's view it may be strange thinking I dont have any real trading experience besides long history of "Paper trading" but after struggling for about 4 years and half finally I got somewhere I feel confident about my strategy and have been fine-tuning it since... I have about $50k saving and possible backup from my parents and relatives if thats not enough. I posted earlier and other person told me that you are the one I should ask. sorry about my bad english and thank you for reading my post.
