Could be the best rant I've ever read. Eloquent doesn't even begin to describe that. As for all you others... I want to do it because of the nature of the work... I've always liked stats and more financial math over engineering math. Yeah, I'm greedy for the money too, but I'm not just diving into some job description that I saw a 6 figure salary next to. I'm also not going to be stupid and sacrifice 90 hours a week for what comes out to $10 an hour. I'm gonna probably stick to doing it on my own, but I was legitimately curious as to how one would break into the network of traders and land a decent job. Thanks for all the help though, fellas.
trading is not as fun as engineering.
stats and financial math are so dry. it's like counting grains of a sand.
greedy for money seems good but when you put money first, you probably won't make much money.
$10/hour, 90 hrs./week sounds like an engineering job.
engineering is really fun. i could spend 24/7/365 engineering stuff. it's like building models. it seems more rewarding, too. but it doesn't pay. can't pay bills
