Why do PROP Desks risk too much capital for too little profits?

This is a bulk deal report of Yesterday:

I can see the PROP desks are risking too much capital for too little relative profits.

200,000 Quantity for 20 Paise profits does not sound logical.

Why do they do this ?

What is the logic behind it ? Can someone share their views.?


I don’t think they are trading, I think they are making the market between different buyers/sellers and they are doing it to get there commissions in return for arranging a buyer/seller for there clients.

Look at the quantity

Exact amount traded by diff clients of same firm.
Odds are of that is very low.

It’s some sort of trading.

@Karthik Can you comment on this please.
