Hi Guys, First off, I hope this is the right forum for my thread. I havent posted here in a while, and a lot has changed with me since I did last. But anyway, I am a rising senior in high school, and Im trying to figure out what to do with my life. I have had a big interest in the stock market for a few years, and I have done some paper trading here and there with marginal success. I am trying to decide though if I should take the leap into planning for a future as a trader. Im trying to decide if getting a finance degree would be the right course, or if I should just jump straight into trading with a prop firm or something like that after I have educated myself. I would really like to hear what you guys have to say about me planning on making my career in trading. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate any information you can provide. Jake Ohh, and I realize I have posted about this before. I didnt exactly get a ton of response on the other thread, and it was a way long time ago. Mabye I can get some more ideas here.
