About Us

The origins of Real Trading go back to 2011 when our President and CEO, Daniel Schlaepfer decided to expand his passion for stock trading into businesses that could help others build careers as traders. Since then, Daniel has assembled an all-star team of global trading experts to pave the road for others. The Real Trading team has decades of cumulative experience trading and training others to trade successfully. 

Founded in 2012 as Day Trade The World, Real Trading is one of the world’s largest true proprietary trading firms. We have more than 3,000 traders operating in 90 countries and making trades on more than 50 global markets. With the support of our parent company, Select Vantage, Inc., Real Trading has the resources and vision for long-term growth.

In a single day, our traders make more than 400 million trades, worth more than US$3 billion in volume.

As a proprietary, or prop, trading firm, our business model is simple: we provide individual traders with the technology, training, and capital to build thriving careers. Our traders work in 50+ global markets, handling stocks, futures, options, and crypto. 

Our technology and trading protocols help to minimize losses and maximize returns. Real Traders take home up to 90% of the profit from successful trades, compared to 50% or less for other so-called “prop” firms.

Real Trading Turns Smart People Into Professional Traders.
