S&T Career

I'm an undergrad majoring in finance at a non target (Ohio State, Lehigh, Fordham, etc.) and interested in a career in trading. Is this a bad path to go down? My strengths are Math and Economics so it seems like this would be a good fit. I'm just worried if it would be a career that would be obsolete soon. I also heard that knowing coding is a plus so what languages should I learn?
