i have a few general questions regarding licenses and what each of their purposes are. (series 7, etc.) from prop trading in an office, working at a investment firm and switching to prop, starting a hedgefund, trading retail for your profession, and all other angles. what is needed, and what is not. i know this is general, but i'm just trying to get a broader picture about what can be done with each. i am currently a 3rd year undergrad and know i want to trade, i just dont know through which mean. any help would be appreciated.
