  1. Hey guys,

    I'm a math and finance double major, and will be a junior in college next year. I'm interested in working on a trading desk and will be looking for an internship at an investment bank next spring. I'm very interested in options, and currently currency appeals to me, and perhaps equity too. Anyone here been on any of these desks that could comment on the products they trade, what the hours are like, and the outlook on these two areas?

    Thanks in advance for any input you guys can give me.
  2. I do trade at a desk in my basement. If you want a job in my basement, fine, take it, just remember to give me a 50% cut at the end of each month.

    Are you sure you have come to the right place for a job?:D
  3. Ok...I think I'll pass. I'm afraid of the dark and of potentially being molested by a 40-yr old male that still lives with his mother.

    So all would be fine if he were 40 and not living with his mother?
