I am a senior economics major with goals of possibly pursuing
I am not a super quant and have not taken many math courses. I have a sim account
but besides that no trading experience. My question is what do I have to do to break
in? Ill start at the lowest level doing anything and move anywhere to do it.
I cant see myself doing a MFE but have considered a few MSF programs to see if I
could break in from there. I have had mixed signals from many people, some say a
MSF would be a great degree to have as long as you are not trading exotics. Others
have said you need to be a rocket scientist for trading gigs.
Also, I have thought about Accounting Masters as I have a family member who trades
equity options at a top emphasized these skills. I am just kind of lost in all of
the suggestions and need some straightforward advice regarding my situation. Thanks.
