How this works

Benefits of Trading with a Proprietary Trading Firm

When it comes to trading, there are two main options: trading with a prop firm or trading with a personal account. Each option has its own advantages and disadvantages, so it is important to choose the one that is right for you.

A prop firm is a company that provides traders with capital to earn gains from based off of their performance. Most prop firms often have strict rules and regulations so it is important that you fully understand how they work before attempting a funding evaluation with one. 

A personal account is an account that you open with a broker. You are responsible for providing the capital to trade with, and your broker will give you trading leverage based on that capital. Personal accounts are more risky, as you could lose all of your money invested in that account if you make a bad trade.

Amplify your trading GAINS

Trading with a prop firm gives you access to more capital, which means you can execute trades with more substantial amounts.

Limited risk

Once you are funded with a prop firm, the potential losses are limited to the associated evaluation fees. This offers a defined risk threshold. Prop firms can also help you diversify your trading capital by spreading your trading strategies across a broader pool, minimizing the impact of individual trades gone bad.

Emotion-free trading

Trading with your personal funds can often lead to emotional decision-making. Prop firms can help you detach from the emotional attachment to personal finances, allowing for a more disciplined and rational trading approach.
