Would you trade someone else's money?

Hi, here's an interesting concept, would you trade someone else's money if they gave it to you?

What if this was done as part of a group of traders and you were given a small percentage of the fund to trade and you got to keep a percentage of the profits?

Would you be willing to pay a small fee to trade someone else's money to compensate the investor for lost funds of unprofitable traders in the network? That is, would you pay a fee like insurance in the case you were unprofitable over a space of time, instead of paying back the investor lost funds?

I'd love too and think I would have quite an edge in intraday trading. I've been backed several times in poker and have turned profits both for myself and my staker.

However, I've looked into this and nobody seems to be offering such a deal when it comes to trading... Also, I don't think it is legal to trade someone else's money unless your working for a financial firm, have the power of attorney or have a federal license to do so. It's a pity...

yes i would. besides i have past experience before.
this done by myself. profit share are depend on the agrrement between both sides, ususall 70:30, sometimes 80:20, with the larger percent are for investor.
paid for lost ? some other trader does that way, it called capital protection. some set on 90%, other set 70%, it's vary.
for now on there's a potential client who plan for investing, but at first month they tested my trading performance on demo account at broker company based on their choice, it's all depend on them as investor, as for now this one choose armada markets platform, I trade demo account, attach my EA on it, and share investor pasword with the clients. so far everything goes well, brokers spread are low that's means good, excution are fast and suit well with my trading strategies.

had many experience with different brokers, and every each broker company giving different trading enviroment, which our task as trader to adapt our strategies with those enviroment.

With regard to investor risk, would you be willing to trade someone else's money, if they insisted you trade through a broker that enforced stops and limits as soon as you opened a position.

For instance enforce a limit to stop with a ratio of say 1.5:1. Would this impact your trading ability or desired to trade the account?
