As we progress along our trading journeys, it’s important to never stop growing and improving. Sometimes, the best way to do that is to take the time to learn from one of the greats. As part of an ongoing series on notable traders, we’re taking time to talk about one of the most recognized names in the space: Paul Tudor Jones.
Our traders are making big and small moves every single day to boost their earnings and further cultivate their trading skills. Every now and then, a trade stands out to us as particularly smart. It’s not always about the most profitable trades, but ones that demonstrate discipline and steady insight. This week's notable trade is a perfect example.
This weekend in a profile of TopstepTrader, Barron's completely nailed our value proposition — that TopstepTrader is the place to go to safely engage in markets, while gaining access to up to $150,000 in futures buying power:
"TopstepTrader, which was founded in Chicago in 2012, has a service to help the at-home day trader develop good habits and an appreciation of risk management, and if funded by the firm, keep 80% of the profits."
Founder and chief visionary officer Michael Patak [...] wants to provide a learning environment for rookies, and offer those who are successful a chance to trade his firm’s money. “Our goal is to make you be accountable for your actions, and follow basic risk criteria,” Patak says.
There's a whole lot more to the article, and we'd recommend you give it a read.
And while we love what Barron's said, we're even more proud of what traders have said about us.
