i joined a prop firm a not long ago. Their trading style is very different from what i imagine. i have been spending my time watching the future , reading the tape and etc. Now i am barely profitable, but i am glad i didn't lose much during learning curve. I trade in an office that do a lot of pair trades. i personally don't think that style fits me. Can someone name some other common trading style these days, and is there always a need for a system? are there pure discretionary traders around that make good money?
