2016 Proprietary Trading Firm Comparison

Proprietary trading is the act of trading the markets for a direct gain as opposed to commission dollars. Essentially, this means if you are trading the markets or plan on learning to trade the markets through an online or desktop trading platform, you probably qualify to be categorized as a “proprietary trader”. Although the terminology is simple to understand, thanks to an increase in specialization navigating through the world of proprietary trading firms is more confusing now than ever.

Trading profitably is a difficult yet achievable goal. One of the factors that many successful traders share in common is they trade in groups and for good reason. Navigating through the many aspects of the markets can be difficult especially for beginners and those transitioning to intraday trading from traditional retail accounts. Although the number of groups which can offer you personalized training and help you turn into a profitable trader has decreased over the last few years, a number of highly-experienced groups offering the personalized education you need to beat the learning curve and become profitable are thriving.

From best-selling authors to regulars on CNBC, the groups we’ve chosen for the 2015 comparison share one thing in common: proven credibility. The firms listed in the chart below are arranged by price and categorized based on some of the more predominant themes traders tend to look for in a firm. You’ll find links to these firms directly under.
