    Got my Series 62 two days ago, will be sitting for the Series 55 in about a month. I need them before I start trading.
  6. I have a BTA 1 here as well, way back when I first started :)
  7. Way back? :eek: :confused:
    waaahhooo, look who we have here? Aren't you just 18-19 only

  8. What is your problem exactly?

    NOA = None Of Above
    NITO = Not Interest To Obtain

  10. Interesting.... one of the most commonly asked questions on ET. "How do I attract OPM?" Yet a good part of the members here trade specifically because they don't need a certification to do it.

    Once a trader gets a little bit of experience, he wants to start making money off of other people. This is when the 'no certifications' part comes back to haunt him. People are much less inclined to trust their money to someone that has only traded his own money and has no professional experience. And (with the exception of prop firms) most firms are also going to require training/certifications.

    Bachelors in Finance
