Hello, I am 18 right now managing a $2500 account. I started out with $1800, 3 months ago. anyway, I will be enrolling in college this coming august to get my 4 year degree. i would like to either a) have enough saved in 4 years (while in college) to trade on my own or b) join a prop firm If I dont have enough saved on my own and have to join a prop firm, how important is a degree in finance? I want to get a degree in education. By the way, I'm not going to a target school or anything. I am going to Western Kentucky Univ. where I have a near full ride. No reason to have all the debt and my family certainly couldn't pay for it with my mom being a teacher and dad is disabled after losing his sternum in open heart surgery. Thanks for the help. good trading luck!
