I would like to be an expert trader in the FX markets. I'm currently working on finishing up my undergrad degree and was wondering what I should major in? At first I thought Finance, but then I did more research and found out that top traders don't major in Finance. They usually major in Math. And quant jobs are usually given to math majors. A top message board for quant researchers is filled with math students. wilmott.com But then you look at someone like George Soros and he majored in Economics. Then you read the Market Wizards and you hear these stories of traders that didn't even go to college and who say colleges won't teach you anything. Not just that, but most colleges believe in the efficient market theory, whereas most traders believe in the inefficient market theory. So what should I do?
