Hello people, this is my first post on the forum and I would like to thank everyone for this amazing information resource that you guys have built up with time and commitment.
Anyways. I have had a friend who was been involved with Trading of any sort for the past 40 years, and anytime I used to listen to him discussing with other dealers I was fascinated by the passion, the commitment and the love for the business he put in.
A little while ago I started trading few amounts of bitcoin, mostly for fun and to raise up few beers. However after few months I have been doing this I can't say I have an actual stable income, but half of my salary comes from it.
So I have decided to extend my boundaries thinking about starting a real career as trader, just like my friend did.
I am interested in trading anything, starting with money, to scarp metal, plastic, tire recycling, possibly taking every good opportunities that comes along.
What brings me down is that first of all I am 25 year old, and this might be a fact for companies to not take me in consideration, second I have done Computer Science at school and I am a unix network admin. I know very little about economy.
But I do have the passion for trading, I feel I have the potential, I can speak two languages, Italian is my native and I think I have a developed a pretty good english, and I want to put as much commitment as possible into this.
After this small brief about myself, do you guys think I can have a future in this kind of business?
Where would I start reading, learning etc. Anybody have any suggestions about what should I do first and how?
Speaking Italian would be an advantage if you were in fashion, food service but in finance, capital markets hardly...
Join a prop firm ECHOtrade, Bright Trading etc., learn a bit about trading and then start sending out applications, given your computer background someone may take a crack at you but, don't be dissappointed if they don't, its a very competitive field.
