I will be graduating from a top 20 university this May. I've majored in Economics with a special interest in Fed's monetary policy. I am looking to be hired as a junior trader or trading assistant. I am fairly familiar with how the equity market works and how the Fed controls money supply and interest rate--mostly macroeconomics stuff. Most prop trading firms I have talked to want me to put some money down if I want to work with them. As I happen to be a broke college student, I am looking for a job where I can get a base salary plus commission based on my performance (without money deposit). I have sent out my resume to most trading firms I can think of. Any help from you regarding my job search will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
