I currently am in search of getting into a currency trading desk, with no track record. Just graduated in May and you can read up on the rest in my resume', and cover letter. I have studied under Rob Booker and am ready to become an asset to someone/company. Here is my cover letter and attached is my resume': I am exploring to see if anyone wants to add a driven young gun looking to get his foot in the right door. After graduating college in May of 2006, I landed a job at one of the most successful hedge funds in the world. While in the Operations Department, I was able to get a solid background of the hedge fund industry, as well as its practices and methods of investment. However I always had the desire for more. My mathematical background and aggressiveness did not allow me to stay in that particular role. I had done well enough financially to pursue trading furthermore. I did, though, leave that job as an excellent performer and with no regrets. For the past year I have been studying the forex market. And for the past six months I have been studying under the guidance of Rob Booker, one of the most renowned in the business. As of late I just returned from West Virginia to spend a week trading in his office and under his supervision. The reason most traders fail is they think they can just go in on a whim and beat the market. Backtesting, as I have learned, is the key to success. Money management and psychology are huge parts, and I am not disregarding them. But backtesting provides the formula for success. Probability holds so much more power over possibility. I spend most of my time now testing my ideas and systems, learning from my mistakes, and getting ready to offer both my current ability and unreleased potential. The funny thing about my statement concerning backtesting is I was one of those guys who thought he could beat the market. I was wrong. So with patience and discipline I continue to work on the most efficient ways to trade, including perfecting my current strategies. I am exploring the job market and want to keep my possibilities open, in particular an offer at a currency desk or assisting a successful trader. I look forward to hearing your response as to possible opportunities. Thank you for taking the time to review my cover letter and resumeâ.
