general background for this board ????

Discussion in 'Trading' started by andrasnm, Aug 11, 2001.

  1. I am surveying what background, age group are most EDAT traders - newbies are from !! please collaborate !!!!!!!!

    I am interested in age and education(work experience/school)
    this is not to be a bore - just your average police profile
    My guess is that newbie or even serious trader here are
    recent (2-4) college grads, young (under 30)??? Am I right ?

    P.S. I know some of you better and please don't flame or
    flood responses that "I am 31" or I never "finished" that
    Business know what I mean ???
    So be a good cheer and repond !!!! How many don't have
    and schooling or never really held a job ?????
