I was wondering how you everybody in ET got interested or started in the markets? Was it something you fell into, love since childhood, following in your parents footsteps, former broker now trader, better then the grocery business? I have always been fascinated by how diffrent people end up in this business. This includes at home traders and the corporate traders. Even parttime traders and sellside analysts. Or even brokers. Its always been fascinating. I have friends who majored in history and sociology who ended up being brokers and traders. I shall start. I have personally been interested in the stock market since I was 4 and reading the bylines of business section. Those I have personal interests and a life besides the markets, I love speaking shop talk and everything about the stock market. I first got my real taste of the stock market when I was 11 and I was allowed to buy stock using my dads account. Oddly I made money. I have been hooked ever since. I got my undergrad from the university of victoria in economics and minored in pychology. LOL I minored in pych because there was alot of cute girls in pychology classes. Im now a fulltime trader, and I help run my family accounts. I invest in all markets, and if you get me talking about markets I think I might never stop.
