Proprietary trading differs from other types of companies working in the financial markets in a way that in this case trading activity is conducted solely on the firm's own funds, rather than on the money of clients brought under management, as happens in companies who work on the principle of trust management.
The proprietary company provides full financial support to the prop trader. Think about it as a job.
The firm, allowing the trader to trade on the company's money, carries certain risks and its interest lies in the fact that the trader gives the company part of the earned profit. As a rule, the more successful a trader becomes and the more money he earns, the less profit he gives to the company. The company generates profit on capital, often the yield from prop-trading can significantly exceed the index yield. Usually, the comparison is made with the S&P 500 - SPDR S&P 500 ETF (ticker SPY). And it also diversifies its risks by distributing assets among a large number of managers.
Income of a trader directly depends on his results. The trader's monthly income does not have any restrictions: from zero to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
It is important for a novice trader to know the specifics of paying a profit in prop-trading:
- According to the rules of business, the trader's profit is paid with a time lag of 1 month.
- The trader receives % of the earned money. This % is called Payout and can vary from 50% to 90%.
