What firms dont require series 56 exam?
Are you not capable of studying and passing an exam?
I read really slow and the book is big.
Perhaps finish High School first?
Well seeing how you are so motivated, driven, and clearly willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, I'll personally call Jamie Dimon on your behalf
Dont mind the bozos around here. Trust me when I tell you elitetrader was once a better place than this. When you had a question you'd get an answer. A fire swept this town and the only ones left are the gypsies and the hyenas.
On topic, the test was made to weed people out who couldn't study and pass the test. There are a few shops who will try to promote the idea that you could move your money overseas and trade without a license, but not only is this not accepted practice, but it can be risky, as you can wake up one morning and your money and the firm will have vanished into thin air.
Thanks! This is what I was looking for.
Exactly - meant to "weed out those couldn't study and pass the test". So the OP here wants to become a career trader but doesn't have the motivation to take ONE exam in order to achieve that goal. How many "big long books" do doctors, lawyers, or mathematicians need to read and be tested on? It's like any career path in life - you get out of it what you're willing to put into it. The original question is fine, and I agree with your advice. However, you must also agree that anyone trying to circumvent the one hurdle in their way to becoming a professional trader because the book is too long reaps what they sow - especially if they were sincerely asking a serious question. If I'm a "bozo" for poking a little fun at a response like that, so be it.
Garbage in = Garbage out.
Try Bright or Echo. Neither require S-56.
Separate names with a comma.
