This topic has been discussed in other interesting threads but I am looking for some advice on getting a sales or trading (possibly back office ) position in London . I am presently in Brussels and plan to go spend a few weeks in London to explore the opportunities there. Any travel advice is welcome too as I have been to London only once and it was a long time ago. I am 27, spent a few years in college just to learn what I thought I needed to be an educated person then dropped out to pursue other interests in the US where I started trading in late 1999. In late 2001, when the PDT rule came into effect, I started trading eminis with the goal of making $200-$300 per week after 6 months, trading one then maybe 2 contracts. I have just been losing almost that amount per month. Luckily I have other sources of income so I can eat everyday . I have never done anything else than trading except for an internship and some sales jobs while in college. I recently came about a few ads for sales or trading positions in London one of which for a (execution only)futures trader in a fund with quite surprisingly no requirements regarding degrees . I would appreciate any advice you have on how to increase my chances of getting an interview and a trading related job.
