You should expect it to take a year to get good at trading. I've made 7 figures in my first year of prop trading, but i came in with 4 years experience of watching the market every day and actively investing in my online accounts. I've done little but ponder the markets for the last 5 years. After about 12 months you should be able to get a grasp on how all the various sectors and stocks relate to one another. You will know which stocks are bad to trade and what works and doesn't. Prop trading insn't for every, but if you were like me and weren't likely to make over 80k in the REAL world, i would definitely give it a shot. Most don't cut it so if you can do 6 figures outside of trading, probably best to stick with that.
