Prop Trader Statistics
The first thing to note is that Sandip Kandel purchased the smallest of our funded trading programs. This program is often chosen by traders who want to get a feel for prop trading. But as you can see it did limit his trading. On the evaluation he took his time and traded up to the 10% target over 21 days.
The graph shows how he had a slight dip around day 12 and how his drawdown reduced for a short while. This is a normal part of trading. His win rate is very high at 87.92%, but he may do slightly better if he could lower his average losing trade size.
