To any newer folks out there reading Troll's responses (the name should give it all away, but some are naive), I'll shine some light on this quickly:
The fact that this gentleman/woman has all the answers, an air-tight strategy, is consistently profitable, yet for some reason can't fund an individual account and put their own money on the line is where focus should be targeted.
Where there's smoke, there's usually a fire.
Think about it- who in their right mind would simply give up 50% of their paycheck to another individual, fully knowing that they're 100% capable of earning that paycheck and keeping all of it in most any other circumstance?
If his/her tactics and knowledge of the FX market runs so deep, he/she can surely trade an individual account, with their own money, and build it up, up, up to levels where they can eventually trade full-time, from home for a living.
I'd love to run a prop firm- have all these clowns trading disposable income of mine, in hopes that they get a tiny slice of the bread whilst trying to climb over one another for recognition.
"I trade for a prop firm because I don't have a lot of capital, but know how to trade, so I'm fine giving up the 50% to earn much more relative to what I can pull down trading my own equity".
My response- Who's the greedy one here? You can't scrap together 500 - 1000 $ in equity and apply your tactics on an individual account to slowly build it up in 1, 2, 3 years time to a nice level? Or, is it that you need the security blanket of the prop firm watching over you. Do they have some secret methodology which only cost you $1,000 up front to learn, with a small one-time non-refundable deposit? A 3 month "probation period", then you're off to the races trading millions?
Let's just say, you're making 50% worth of a comfortable living for yourself.
