i am interested in both fields. i have been programming various languages for quite some time. I also do lot of financial trading, take part in a small equity fund at our school, where we mainly do valuation models and stuff. i really enjoyed taking part in the trading olympiad where we had to develop automated systems. what are some career paths and positions that i can purse which combines both of the two worlds ? programming & finance/banking? do you think this sector will be outsourced to indian and chinese programmers in the future ? thanks!
