I'm currently a Junior, studying economics at McGill University. I'm a bit of a screw-up, GPA wise, which prevents me from getting into institutional S&T...at least out of undergrad. Will working for a craphole place like swifttrade benefit me at all? I know 80% fail to make it at Swifttrade, but I'm guessing most are morons. Most people give into all sorts of heuristic biases, including confirmation biases, overcofidence, honoring sunk costs, etc. If I have the "mind" of a trader, so to speak, are my odds better? Or does a shop like Swifttrade just thrive on randomness and generating commisions from gullible folks?
