Any careers that seek daytraders?

  1. are there any divisions of banks/investment houses/funds that look to hire daytraders with TA experience?

    or is this not a valuable skillset for wall st.

    i.e. transisitioning daytrading experience --> wall st job.
  2. If you can trade you are always welcome i guess. Perhaps they don´t like to call quantification, statistics or what else for TA but it´s the same thing.
  3. what does "daytrader with TA experience" mean?

    A trader who thinks he can read charts but is not profitable?

    A trader who can read charts and is highly profitable?

    Of course, if you're highly profitable, why are you seeking employment?

    Maybe barely profitable?
  4. For a trader, their track record is simply the only valuation they have.

    If you want to do other roles like research, IT, Back-Office and others ... then that's a different story.
