Difference between trading roles?
I'm a STEM student at a target who will be applying for summer internships in London. Currently I'm learning how to trade/invest, use technical analysis tools on a broker and have made some good starting money for a student these past months. I also have an interest inand can see myself building algos to trade for me. I have an interest for markets and like the high risk high reward opportunities that trading offers. But I don't really understand the difference between trading roles at various firms.Could somebody explain to me the difference of a trader , at a prop shop like JS and at a quant ? Is there a different skill set for each? Also, what's the difference in compensation, job security and career progression for each?
