New member here, just a few questions: I am 23 and just graduated from a top University last summer with a Bsc Economics degree. I did have the option to start with Goldman Sachs as an analyst after completing internship with them the previous summer. However, my family has their own property development business so i decided to join the family business. I have my own project, so basically i am my own boss so i have freedom of hours i want to work. My true passion is Economics though, and trading. I am still a novice to trading and have read numerous books, only the last two being complicated TA books. I want to be trading as my primary business; property development takes care of itself (i have a good site manager). My question is: Is it possible to get the same returns as some of the traders working in e.g. Goldman Sachs? I need some advice from past traders and current traders and some guidance in which books to study and anything which can help me. Some of the books i have right now, dont seem very complicated so something quite advanced is what i want. Any help and advice will be much appreciated as i am currently feeling like i have missed a great opportunity such as working for Goldman Sachs .
