  1. This market volatility blows and I can't stand sitting on my hands any longer waiting for my set ups that I used to get 10x a day, now lucky to get 3 a week.
    "spikes and flatlines... embrace the horror"

    Good luck to all who can deal with this sloppy market that only trades 1hr on the open and 1hr on the close... more power to you as you are a better person than me....

    Thinking about getting out of trading but still interested in financial markets...

    I would love to hear opinions on both as I have friends who are both and each says theirs is the better field.

    What are your thoughts?

  2. Since I was an FA, I would have to say that the FA is better route - you can sell insurance (great commissions but very boring to sell) and then you can sell stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc. As an insurance only guy, you are a 'one trick pony' that is constantly pushing whole life insurance trying to make a buck.

    Sorry... I am biased I guess...

    Good luck with your search, there are plenty of firms out there.

    Oh yeah, most of these positions are 100% commission based, so I hope you like people and smiling and dialing!
