1. Get ‘some’ education no need to overdo it, basic economics, math, trading principles, (no need to go overboard with paying out for expensive courses)
2. Practice, practice, practice, lots of screen time
3. Once you have established a track record, write, speak to firms in that field that interest you. Tell them what you want… if your any good they will give you a chance..
Personally I have found trading for one self much more challenging and rewarding. I speak to people that work for funds/banks and they are under constant pressure from their masters. Work your butt off finding your own style/method of trading you will never answer to a ‘master’ again. Not that I am their yet !!
