    I am a sophomore in college, and I trade my own money. I hope one day to be trading on my own. I was thinking a good way to start would be to get a summer job or internship at a trading desk or with a hedge fund in New York. Does anyone have any advice on this?
  2. Major in physics or math. Otherwise you don't have a chance. Whatever you do don't tell anyone you trade at home or trade retail. That is a death sentence in the fund world

    I have heard from other people to major in philosophy instead. Why is that if your trade at home or retail a death sentence? Thanks for input so far.
