Basically, I'm interested in trading and the finance world in general and I don't know much about it. Right now I'm working in Japan, but when I return to Canada I'd like to get involved in something financially related. I have a degree in the Social Sciences and I'm taking the Canadian Securities Course online right now. Anyway, I've applied to a bank to maybe work as a branch manager's assistant, but I'm also thinking of applying to some place like SwiftTrade. I've read the posts for and against it, but for a 23 year old who is looking to get involved in finance and trading, is it a good place to start and get experience? It sounds like they'll train me and provide me with experience that I could eventually apply somewhere else. The most experience I have is managing my own portfolio with a discount brokerage and the Canadian Securities Course which is still in progress. Any thoughts from the vetrans here? Thanks.
