What suits you in particular depends entirely on not just where you are on the spectrum but how this influences your overall cognitive function (attention, perception,reasoning, self-awareness etc etc) so it would not be sensible for me to make any kind of suggestion. That said, whatever your condition, I can say with complete confidence that trading presents cognitive and psychological problems for the majority and being a good "analyst" and/or being capable of intense and prolonged concentration do not guarantee performance any better than the "norm"...which as I'm sure you know, is very very bad.

Be well.
I had a quick scan and the TOP result showed this.

https://www.iidc.indiana.edu/pages/C...rgers-Syndrome

Table 1
Bad Jobs for People with High Functioning Autism or Asperger's Syndrome: Jobs that require high demands on short-term working memory

Cashier -- making change quickly puts too much demand on short-term working memory
Short order cook -- Have to keep track of many orders and cook many different things at the same time
Waitress -- Especially difficult if have to keep track of many different tables
Casino dealer -- Too many things to keep track of
Taxi dispatcher -- Too many things to keep track of
Taking oral dictation -- Difficult due to auditory processing problems
Airline ticket agent -- Deal with angry people when flights are cancelled
Future market trader -- Totally impossible
Air traffic controller -- Information overload and stress
Receptionist and telephone operator -- Would have problems when the switch board got busy


But the time and effort put into this research will be completely ignored because its not what some people want to hear. After all, "there's none so deaf as those who will not hear".

Good work CV! Interesting list - I'm strangely drawn to some of the options in Table 2 and "Lawnmower repair" in particular. I'm given to think that maybe I've missed my calling...

The presentation of results will take on a larger dimension in the coming days (84 of the DJStoxx600 members will report their quarterly accounts). According to the latest estimates, company profits will have grown 8.20% in the second quarter of this year, compared to the same period of 2017. However, excluding the oil sector, the increase in profits will have been more contained (+ 3.10%). The increase in revenues is estimated to have been 5.20%. Once again, this variation is inflated by the accounts of the oil companies. If we exclude these companies, revenues will have risen by a mere 0.50%. So relevant or more than the results themselves, will be the considerations that CEOs of companies will make of the current tension between the US and its trading partners. The exposure to world trade in European companies is far superior to its American counterparts: more than half of its revenues are generated outside Europe compared to the 30% of revenues that US companies originate outside the United States.
