Hey guys- I'm 16 and a sophomore in highschool. I got into trading last fall and I've fallen in love with it since. But now I'm realizing I want to pursue a career in finance/quantitives/economics and have started to toss everything else to the side. I'm sure this is what I want to do. I no longer care about classes like Latin or English and I haven't worked out in forever. Everything besides trading, economics, and making money don't matter to me really anymore. I'm afraid my GPA is going to slip, etc. etc.. I feel like I'm alone- my parents don't know anything about this stuff that has seemed to engulf my life and my classmates thought when I said something about "securities" that I wanted to be a cop... My guidance counselor told me I need a degree in business to pursue this path... Is there anyone who is/gone through this? Anyone have any tips for how to keep everything balanced? Sorry for the melodramaticism.
