Trading and exit opportunities

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by Robertwiz, Sep 15, 2010.

  1. Hello, just wondering for people that manage to make money in trading, have developed good track records ( I am not a trader yet, but in real life know of two successful real life traders), but after developing many skills in trading which have somewhat applicable to business and finance in general ( investment knowledge, analytical thinking, tax planning, strategic thinking, risk management etc, is it possible to use ones trading track record and skills learned to move onto a more traditional business career. In other words:

    1. Can a successful career as a independent trader allow one to get hired anywhere in the business or mainstream finance world?

    ( There can be many legitimate reasons, why a moderately successful self employed trader may want to move onto something else)

    2. Allow one to apply to an MBA program.
