I know prop firms give more leverage, and also its easy when you are a starter because of the pdt rule, you can start with 2.5k and you have 25K buying power. But what are other differences? I have researched a lot and if I would have money I think I would start with interactive brokers because the fees are low, and the smart routing technology seems nice to me. Because I dont have 25K yet, I can start with 2.5K with TM Global Capital which has good reviews. But my question is really, how is it possible to give that leverage? If I am a very good trader, lets suppose that, and I make 2K in the first month with a payout of 99, in other words would mean that with a starting capital of 2.5K I earned 2K, which seems strange for me as a newbie. How can they do that leverage? and what other differences are there?
