The career path to these jobs is less defined than for investment banking jobs, but most individuals should have an aptitude for math, an ability to react quickly to changing conditions, the fortitude to withstand market volatility and the ability to make quick decisions based upon incomplete information. Most successful traders are truly passionate about what they do and often spend their off hours studying the markets. If the previous profile sounds appealing, then a career in trading may be right for you.

Hi guys, my first post here! Have been a long time fan and follower of the forum but looking to get some advice here

I have been trading forex on and off now for the last 3-4 years since leaving university (very little of what they taught me has been of much value trading!) and i'm now looking to generate a track record and break in to the industry.

Lots of useful advice in this thread so felt as though i sjhould introduce myself and say hello! thanks for making it such a useful place

I've heard from a Citibank representative that if you manage to impress them with your results and portfolio, then you don't have to do much more to land a job with them.

Thе fundamentals аrе simple, but acquiring mastery оvеr trading requires years оf experience and a complete understanding of swaps, hedging, and detailed statistical analysis.

All my life I wanted a job trading. but never was able to get one.
How old are you?

What have you learned?

What I have learned in my life time is that want and need are both four letter words which don't really mean much.

I will say I love you. of course that is spiritual love.

but then spiritual love is the REAL DEAL. HAHAHA.

Sexual Attraction love ends in divorce & fighting.

And that's why arranged marriages have a lower divorce rate.

Prisons have low escape rates too but no one tries to get into do them do they?

Live in misery and suffering topped up with lashings of abuse.


Tyranial culture of retarded insecure social coercian if you ask me. As someone said, you can put lipstick on a pig but it's still a pig. (n)
