Do You Want To Trade For Proprietary Trading Firm?

Do you know why most traders fail? It is not caused by flaws in their strategy or a lack of desire to succeed.

The biggest problem retail traders face is undercapitalization.

Once you decide that you want to pursue a career in trading full-time, you will immediately face a tough financial decision, that is why you should consider joining FTMO Proprietary trading firm.

How much is enough to start with?

Most traders think they can start trading full-time with $1000 or $2000. The truth is, they are NEVER going to make it.

So, let’s assume you start with $1000 and in one trading month you will take 22 trades, with Reward/Risk Ratio (RRR) of 2 and your win percentage is 55. Also, you risk 1% of your equity on a single setup.

Even though your performance is very admirable with those statistics mentioned above, there is still a statistical chance that you will end up 7% negative with $930 in your account. The best-case scenario would be 26% gain with $1260 as ending balance.

If we are going to take an average result here, let’s say you make approximately 10% profit every single month. The table below shows the consistent scaling in this ‘best possible’ scenario.

Month Previous % Total
1 $ 1000 +10% $ 1100
2 $ 1100 +10% $ 1210
3 $ 1210 +10% $ 1331
4 $ 1331 +10% $ 1464.1
5 $ 1464.1 +10% $ 1610.51
6 $ 1610.51 +10% $ 1771.56
7 $ 1771.56 +10% $ 1948.72
8 $ 1948.72 +10% $ 2143.59
9 $ 2143.59 +10% $ 2357.95
10 $ 2357.95 +10% $ 2593.74
11 $ 2593.74 +10% $ 2853.12
12 $ 2853.12 +10% $ 3138.43

As you can see from the above results, in 12 months you would end up with $2853 profit.

For some people, they need $2853 in a month to cover basic needs like rent, food, insurance, debt etc.

So, even though the above example takes into account over a 100% gain (which is realistically very hard to achieve), we don’t have to tell you that you will most probably not be a full-time trader with only $2853 per year.

Let’s now take a look at the same equity simulation we used before, but this time with $50,000.

As you can see from this simulation, an average gain of 10% would give you $5000 in a month. That is something worth considering, right?
