starting a business vs. trading
I'm a sophomore at a target school in NYC, and have thought trading as my career going forward. But then I also have wanted to run a company, be in charge on the process, meet people, build something from nothing, and make mucho cash. As I read various articles, books and threads, I am beginning to think that trading, especially directional one, is more of managing risk on a random outcome. I also think the field of trading, regardless of product whether it be commodities or financials, is being more and more flooded with the best and the brightest from all over the world lured by the riches a few have made. I believe the competition is a lot fiercer in trading over a few opportunities seen by so many.
I admit that I also was drawn to trading by Gordon Gekko, Paul Tudor Jones, and many more who seemed to have the best jobs in the world, but realistically, to fulfill my dream of becoming filthy rich, being an entrepreneur is more sensible.
what are the good and bad things about trading and entrepreneurship?
