VELEZ CAPITAL MANAGEMENT
VCM Approach to Proprietary TradingInITIAL TrAInInG Attempting to trade for a living without adequate training, accounts for the majority of failures in the industry, so a rigorous training program is the first step for anyone entering the VCM proprietary trading program. New traders first take a 2-day course written and taught by Oliver Velez which covers technical analysis techniques and a set of very specific income-generating trading tactics. They then participate in an intensive 5-day trading lab online or at one of the VCM offices, where they receive hands-on instruction in the use of a trading platform to put these techniques into real action. By the end of the lab, they are trading the firms capital in a live market environment. COAChInG SuPPOrT All VCM proprietary traders are provided with continuing mentoring by Mr. Velez and his staff through a combination of daily newsletters, intra-day email alerts and a live online chat room. These services continue the education process by enabling traders to study and interact with VCM professionals as they analyze and trade the market. Proprietary traders who choose to trade at one of the VCM offices will also be assigned their own workstation and be able to learn from the professional staff on site every market day at no additional charge. rISk MAnAGeMenT Novice traders tend either to have too little capital or risk too much capital too soon in the learning curve, often resulting in early failure. So, VCM funds each trader with its own money and has developed a closely monitored trader advancement program. The program is designed to increase a traders lot size and trading capital over time as they demonstrate consistent profitability. At each state of the process, VCM Risk Managers work with every trader to ensure that their daily capital exposure and risk of loss is tightly controlled. COMMISSIOnS VCM proprietary traders get the firms institutional commission rate of 2 cents per 100 shares, the lowest in the industry! Unavailable to retail traders, this institutional rate essentially eliminates the negative impact that commissions can have on profitability and greatly accelerates the journey to trading success. TrADInG CAPITAL Possibly the biggest barrier for most individuals interested in a trading career is access to a large enough capital base to generate a substantial trading income. The VCM proprietary program removes the hurdle by providing the traders access to the firms capital account for trading. Traders achieving consistent profitability will continue to have their trading capital increased as they progress through the advancement program, making their earning potential almost unlimited. LOSSeS Once an aspiring trader has completed the training required to enter the VCM proprietary trading program, VCM assumes all of the trading risk for the remainder of the learning curve. Proprietary traders are reimbursed with a percentage
