    Hi everyone,

    I am new to this board and I would appreciate any input on this. I am a college student just beginning my junior year at and a career as a prop trader sounds very interesting to me. I realize that it is probably one of the most stressful jobs out there and the success rate is low. I feel like I have an intermediate knowledge of both fundamental and technical analysis, and have been trading my own money for a couple years now. I truly have a passion for trading equities and I try to learn as much as I can on a day to day basis.

    I am wondering what your opinions are on what I should be doing at this point to prepare myself for a possible career in trading equities. What kind of internships/experience should I be gaining at this point? Are there any books or subject matters that I really should focus on studying?

    Thanks a lot...look forward to the responses.
