Hello everyone, I'm at a point in my life where I have several options that could shape my future, but I wanted some advice. First off, I'm currently in school and about to graduate (1 Year) with a bachelor's in Finance. I'll be getting an internship within the next 6 months which will likely transpire into a full-time offer. Secondly, my mother has set me up pretty well, she owns 2 homes and wants to buy a 3rd, and within the next month I'll have the title on the newest home transferred to my name. She also has given me 50k to start trading in an effort for me to pursue my desire of swing trading with possibly some daytrading. I've done sim trading for over a year on and off, and have always been profitable, but I'm looking for a clear cut system on swing trading. For a person in my situation, what's the best broker? Ideally I'd like to be a swing trader, with maybe some daytrading here and there. Here's my options: 1) Graduate and take my full time job. Be happy that I already have a house and just build up my wealth with money in mutual funds. 2) Graduate and take my full-time job. Pursue swing trading heavily and after 5 years become profitable enough to quit my job. 3)Graduate and take my full-time job. Become a real estate investor on the side. Swing trade on the side as well.
