I have to interview a person in a career for class, and was not able to get a floor trader in person, so I am hoping one of the career traders here would be willing to answer these questions for me real quick. Thanks a lot. How do you deal with the high stress and emotion each day? How do you deal with such big monetary losses and gains without it affecting you? How did you bounce back from your biggest loss? What made you decide to be a trader? How long have you been a trader? How did you get your start on the floor?(if applicable) What interests lead to trading? Sports? Strategy games such as chess? What traits make someone successful at trading? How do you get ready for trading each day? How long is the average trading career? Do even profitable traders burn out fast? How do you feel about online trading taking over pit trading? Do you have a favorite trading day? A historic day where an event moved the market? Thanks a lot to anyone willing to help out, I appreciate it.
