I am posting this message with the hope of stirring up some interest from a prop. firm or possibly even a mentor. I'm 43 and live in downtown Chicago. I recently sold my successful business because I no longer felt the challenge and became bored. I have always been interested in the markets and if I had it to do over again coming out of college I would have gone the financial route. I would very much like to be hired by a prop. firm to learn futures trading. I am not risk averse and, in fact, due to my business experience, have great respect for risk and know how to manage it effectively. For the past couple of years I have been studying technical analysis and have become fairly proficient at interpreting various indicators. I am willing to work without pay and in return you would be getting someone who can perform under pressure, has a significant business background and a level of maturity necessary to bring us both success. Please email me with any interest.
