Hi All, I have been following the stock market for a couple years now (I am 26 y/o) and I haven't done too well in the past when , but I have learned a lot through my tribulations. In a nutshell, I'm tired of attempting to half-assedly trade and I want to learn how to truly be a good trader. Does getting an MBA truly help one in succeeding as a trader, or is that better for corporate finance and such? Being a retail person, I don't have access to all the real time info as everyone else, or the training. For someone in my shoes, is it best to join a prop firm, put money down, and get trained? Also, in daily trader life, what do traders do besides the obvious of trading to make money? Is it reading news or having a sharp numbers mind, or a lot of other things? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
