page title icon Prop Trading Firm Comparison

More and more experienced traders are turning to proprietary trading firms in order to fund their trading strategies.

The advantages are obvious. You can trade someone else’s money, keep a hefty percentage of your profits, and walk away from any losses. 

Of course, a deal like that doesn’t come without strings attached, so it is imperative that you choose the right firm to set up your funded account.
