I am a young student looking to learn about the market and the different areas of Finance. I have always been fascinated with Wall street and I am trying to start early to put myself in position to break in eventually.
I have been following the market and reading articles online but I was wondering what are some other steps I could take to get a more detailed look into what specific areas of a bank do. I am basically looking for any advice or direction from an experienced person in Finance that you wish someone told you when you first got started. Reading/Study recommendations, tips how to understand and follow the market better, good areas of a bank that have promising futures that I should look into, etc.
Simply put: I want to have a better understanding of finance/markets/wall st, and figure out some sort of direction and path I want to head in. Where do I start?
I like the idea of sales, I enjoy making new friends and building relationships and this is something I think I would find myself to be good at, but sales is such a broad idea that from my understanding can apply to all aspects of a bank. Trading seems exciting too.
Any advice is appreciated and i am new to WSO so if you want more clarification lmk.
