Types of Proprietary Trading Firms

Proprietary trading firms typically fall into 2 different categories. Some firms offer a mix of both:
  • Working as a independent trader. Typically requires capitial contribution where the firm offers leverage. Usually offering more freedom on strategies and markets.
  • Working as an employee. Trading on firm capital. Usually part of the firm strategy and maybe more restrictive on types of strategies and markets.

Prop Trading vs Investing

The lines between prop trading and investing is typically defined by duration of the purchase. Prop trading typically deals with short term, driven by tactical or statistical reasoning. Investing is typically on a longer time frame, driven by valuation and business prospects.

Prop trading is increasingly statistical and algorthmic. Many firms require some form of programming, maths or technology background.

The key behind successful trading or investing is still the strategy. While there are merits in these individual disciplines and method. Technology is unable to fully take on the constant state of flux, historical, current, new, co-variant and non-variant factors. Focus on developing a successful strategy and method. The rest are merely tools to achieve the goal.
