I have been watching the markets for over 10 years. I never had formal training - never even interacted traders before. I recently finished my first year of Law school while working for the city of New York. I have heard of prop trading yet kept it as a dream. After being in Law school I realized that you really can do whatever you want to do in life so..... I want to be happy. I am fascinated with the market yet for many years I thought I could teach myself and technical analysis was all you needed but more recently I have realized that there is more to it and the only way to learn and build a profession is to learn from those who truly know. Ok nice story but here is the bottom line. I love the market I am so eager to learn. I will put all into it - rather than spend thousands of dollars for a Law degree which will not make me happy I want to TRADE!!!! I want to leave my city job I fortunatly am in a position to do this. My dillema: I have sent my resume to the prop firms in NYC and have recieved no responses. Am I kidding myself that someone with just "self taught" market experience and no track record will be given a shot? I have a BS with a gpa 3.776 from a lower end school. I know that with the right training I will be great, I will work soooo hard. I am not looking for riches "now at least" I just want to learn so in a few years I can manage my own accont with pure confidence. I just need one chance to prove myself. Any ideas how I can get that shot? Thank you all!!!
