Welcome to the CEED.trader.group - The home of professional stock traders

Let’s compare the pros and cons of trading a personal or a prop firm account in the following key categories:

Trading Capital & Buying Power

Having (reasonably) more buying power also increases your income potential.

Prop trading firms do not have this exclusive advantage over retail brokers outside of the US. You can also get professional buying power through one of CTG partner brokers

Commission per share

This represents the biggest cost item for active day traders.

The potential savings from lower commissions must offset the profit split and higher fixed costs for professional market data for prop traders.

Market data

Market data fees for traders who are considered professionals by the exchanges are significantly higher than for non-professionals for both futures and stock exchanges.


Equity prop trading firms often only provide the option of Sterling Trader Pro or Sterling LS which are significantly more expensive than alternative in-house solutions.

Net profit after tax

Net profit after tax (NPAT) depends on the profit split and the difference between capital gains tax (CGT) and personal income tax (PIT) in your country.

Hypothetical or simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, because the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs, in general, are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown. Testimonials appearing may not be representative of other clients or customers and are not a guarantee of future performance or success.


Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. This is neither a solicitation nor an offer to buy or sell futures, options, foreign currencies or any other securities. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
