Echoing other's sentiments, avoid proprietary trading firms, most are not worth it. The experience can be useful and educational but it will probably be very expensive.

Instead of trying to figure out how to get a large bankroll, start small, like $5k or $10k. Then, set realistic expectations about how much you can make with that. Next, get some education and start trading with very small amounts. Experience is the best teacher and can teach you things no book or educator can teach you. You will learn more about yourself than you may have imagined.

By keeping your risks small you'll increase the odds of not blowing up your account and you will be able to keep learning. You will not make a lot of money quickly, but you will be on your path to becoming the trader you hope to be. It will probably take years. Sorry, you just have to accept that.

You will still have to keep your day job, but you'll be adding to your experience which will become valuable over time as you come across (attract) more capital.
