Well, its simple math. If you have an edge and you can turn it 50 times a day you are more likely to have a positive month than when you turn it 30 times a month. Its just the law of large numbers. There is a reason, why most Propshops focus on intraday trading or why HFTs trade 100k+ times per day. They dont necessarily post bigger numbers, but are far more consistent than a hedgefund for example. When you look at trading as a business, you feel much better when you know that the probability of a negative month is close to zero. You dont want to sit there and wonder if you can keep up the business because you havent made a dime the last two months and summer is coming If you have a job and swing trade as a side gig, it's different of course. But a propshop isn't looking for those people.
