my name is Z.
i am planning to record my journey toward a funded prop account here…
while there is plenty of pay-to-play “prop firms” that have popped up ( and keep popping up about every week),
i have always preferred those that were more track record-focused than fee-focused.
just some personal preference.
lately, time isnt a factor anymore to either type, but it isnt used to be that way.
profit targets, maximum scaling up in funding, and performance fees% also are factors, however, i dont look at prop trading as a lucky lottery, i prefer things to last longer.
the brokerage i have traded ( lets just name it A, to comply with the mods?, lol), has offered a funded program until end of 2022, when they decided to rework it, and launched a month ago the new version.
it was unfortunate to me, since i was already at 500k+ funding.
and bcos i had to restart building up everything again.
the same time this new program is very promising, offering up to 1 million maximum prop funding, and way higher performance fee% than the previous versions.
i will journal here my pathway to that million dollars. fingers crossed.
