  1. I am Series 7 and Series 66 licensed. I started working phones at Van Kampen from April 20001- Novemeber 2001. At Van Kampen, obtained Series 6 and failed Series 63 on first attempt on day I got laid off. I was unemployed from November 2001-April 2002. Working as broker intern until the end of this month. Obtained Series 7 on June 26 and Series 66 on the 8th of this month. Played Yahoo Finance's Investment Challenge regularly from August 2000-March 2001 when contest was shut down. In January 2001, I turned $100, 000 in Yahoo money into $225,000 over two week period rising to number 2 out of forty thousand people at one time. Contest was long-only, qoutes delayed 15 minutes, trades delayed 30. Regular reader of thestreet.com/realmoney.com. Watch CNBC premarket and pull up real time watch list on Datek. Still paper trade. I have applied to Domestic, Worldco, ETG, Heartland, Innovative, First New York, etc. any suggestions?
  2. wtf 100 views and no ideas from you people? btw, i finally heard back from innovative today they might be able to start me out with as little as $7k but i'm skeptical of them thanks to the informative reviews i've read on this site. i have an interview tomorrow for a trader job with koch industries.
