An excellent way to trade, especially for those who are passionate about trading but may lack the sufficient funds (capital), is to trade for proprietary trading firms, also known as “prop firms”. A quality prop firm will provide traders with the capital needed for trading, and offer them the best services and tools, as well as the mentorship and training required, in order for them to find success in trading. They then also share the profits with their traders. Essentially, traders do not need to have any cash on hand. If they pass the consistency criteria of the firm, they will have access to a buying power assigned by their managers. As their skills in trading improve, their buying power will be gradually increased. In 2020, Andrew Aziz founded Peak Capital Trading, a proprietary trading firm based in Vancouver, Canada.
