If you have drive and passion with an obsession with trading and deep pockets and years to study and fail and keep going . If you are willing to risk it all and go through dark hard times to chase the dream then there is a small chance that you could make it. I know , I have been there and it’s is brutal . But the rewards if you are one of the few , are worth it, in my opinion.Thank you for taking time and sharing your experience . I know the truths about all these so called prop firms now a days , When you are doing any sort of job and you start loving it , have that gut feeling you are good at that Just need someone to show the right direction which will probably make you successful , I do have the same feelings about trading .Unfortunately I came to know about trading very late in my life otherwise i could've start preparing early in my life to get in the route and work for some investment bank and related .
