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".
