Confused - Algo Trading Strategies developer looking for career options
I am an Algorithmic trading Strategies developer for a software firm. I develop strategies like vwap, twap etc. and work with both buy side and sell side clients. The work involves lot of programming work in C++. I also passed CFA level 1.
I am doing this since 1 year or so.. At the same time, I am immensely interested in trading. I do trade on a daily basis on my personal account.
I am confused about the career path from here. Ideally I would like to get involved in trading, get some front office role, as well as make tons of money :) (I currently make around 140-150K with bonus)..
I am confused - any suggestions/advice ? What are the opportunities in the Algo trading space that are interesting and fit the bill ? Help please !
