If TST can prove successful from shared model of risk/profits with traders (not just combine fees) then it is not difficult to imagine that someone can do a better job or at least offer a better gamble. But, I think for that to happen it would require a trader with an interest in that because there are a lot of other businesses outside of trading. I see some potential for disruption in the algo space, as well.

I hope TST and MES traders do well-- because I'm not aware of many other opportunities. Those are the ones I'm keeping an eye on for now.

I just checked out MES and they have joined with another company and will launch in February. The 50% split is a little high.

Speaking of disruption-- I would like to see an entirely different model that is more of a marketplace for equity providers and traders to link up. The equity provider can request a test period from 30-60 days and then have their own risk strategy.
