I have been interested and watching the markets for a couple months now and have been greatly intrigued by them and how you can make (and lose) money. I opened my first account through Scottrade last week and have made a couple of trades. I am actually interested in trying to find information on making a career change into being a broker and/or working directly with the markets and buying/selling on a daily basis. I don't necessarily mean a day trader, because I don't have experience or the money for that. How would one go about making a career change in this direction? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks so much.
