Does any serious funding opportunities exist today for real traders?

Hello all.

Does any serious funding opportunities exist today for real traders?

Pay to trade in simulator companies are not what I have in mind.

Thank you.

Yes but it is chicken and Egg. If you are a successful trader, with a proven live trading model, then you can get leverage funding which would enable you to take your trading to the next level. But most professional trading groups will expect you to have some skin in the game. If you are a successful trader who cannot/will not back yourself, well then you cant be very confident in your own abilities, so why would anyone else?

Hello,

Where would I access such a group or funding, then?

I agree that it's a catch 22 or chicken and egg situation as if you're a good trader you might not want to trade external funds. Conversely, without a good track record you probably ain't going to get access to any funds or external capital.

Looking back on my prior losses or lack of success so far, a big part of the equation is that I've been undercapitalized and traded too large in order to make a "worthwhile" return.

For example, if I had $1M in my trading account, I'd be very happy on a personal level if I could generate a 15 % return p.a. Knowing this I could trade a much smaller size and be more selective knowing I don't need to make a killing.

However, with a $10K trading account, a 15% return p.a. wouldn't barely cover the cost of my yearly data fees. As such, it puts you at a higher pressure to perform in order to generate larger returns. Which again could easily lead to "ruin".
