Hi,there, I am asking for some suggestions here. Thanks a lot in advance for your help. I am a Ph.D.. student in Physics. I will get my Ph.D in half a year. Most of my work are modeling and simulations of crystal growth. I am very interested in trading and have been trading in my spare time for about 2 years. This year I turned $2000 to over $20000. I am very happy about that. And hope I can turn the $20000 to $100000 in 2004. I am using an ameritrade account for online trading. Most time while I do my physics research on the computer I put my orders also. Now I am looking for jobs. I have a dream to start a hedge fund or mutual fund firm or other private firm in future because I love this business of trading. It is the most challenging job I had done so far. You got excited so much every day. I just love it. However, I don't know If I am qualified to get such a job in the trading business? And I don't know what position is appropriate for me and how can I find such penning? Is prop. trader a good choice? I don't know if they require series 7. I don't have this series 7. Any comments is highly appreciated ! Thanks again!
