That also means avoiding the all-too-alluring Proprietary Trading Firms - better known as "Prop Firms" - if you take this route, I can assure you that you will not blossom into the trader you are capable of becoming.
Because it is just another short-cut - and there are no short-cuts to trading successfully - the only thing that a prop firm makes you believe you can do is earn a greater amount of money by trading in bigger sums of cash that doesn't even belong to you, the likes of which you would never trade, simply because you wouldn't be joining the prop firm in the first place if you had that kind of cash.
If you want to be a trader and be good at it. Don't take the short-cuts. Every other profession penalizes people for trying to take the short cut to success and if you do what I'm telling you not to do... well, then you are writing your own trading obituary as a result.
Learning to become a successful trader with large positions, requires that first prove yourself successful with the smaller positions.
