    I've just been all but hired as a swifty. I'm pretty excited. Entering my second year in college and planning to trade full time at least for a while.

    I might do it part time in the long future and I'm happy to be getting into it this early.

    I think @ swift they said I'd be trading QQQQ.

    Can anyone direct me in the right place to prepare for that?

    Anyone been in my situation before and has any tips would be much appreciated, regarding swift trade or just in general.

    Oh and one burning question... They said i'd be listed as an indie contractor so the 35% commission that I get on my trades... How much of that do I actually take home after taxes?

    Cheers, Jesse
