i have a question for some which i have tried hard to find on the internet to no avail.
I'm currently studying my diploma in share trading and my ultimate forex starts next week which i'm thoroughly enjoying.
I've always been interested in financial markets ever since i was kid and always wanted to be "that guy from wall st" lol (gordan gekko)
i realize now that's a bad idea, but nonetheless undergoing my study now i realize there's only so far demo & studying the techniques and market can get you, i believe you have to actually trade consistently to completely wrap your head around trading. Which leads me to my next question how do i get into the financial industry without a degree do i have to go uni and get a degree (which in my opinion is crap) i think trading is a completely different ball game and the psychological side of things far outweigh everything else which is one of my great attributes i have a great mental drive and can deal well under pressure and can overcome adversity as i have done all my life.
But do i need a degree to get into the financial industry i was reading perhaps a economic degree, other said if you have experience in trading your own money with a proven track record that can also open up doors to get into trading floors etc. I start real live trading February which i am excited for but if i have a decent track record at the end of the year will that be enough to get me into a trading floor or a hedge fund whatever it may be?
FYI i am only 20 years old so if i must go back to UNI then so be it, ill do whatever it takes to be a trader
look forward to any comments
