I would like to know, my dream one day is to become a full-time professional trader. Even if it means struggling and not making big big bucks - I just love studying the markets and the general lifestyle/workday of a typical trader. The problem is, I am currently finishing my degree in Marketing. I DO NOT come from a educational background based on Finance. Is it a requisite to be a finance savvy in order to succeed in this type of business? What kind of training / education does one formally need to become a trader? Would an intern at a reputable investment bank help me learn the basics? Where can I look for resources regarding which online brokers to use, which software platforms to learn, etc. etc? I eventually want to engage in proprietary trading for my own account. And please, I do not need recommendations as to workshops, 3-day-become-rich-quick programmes or any of that other salesman stuff. I would really appreciate constructive advice and strong guidance on how to embark on this tough career. Thanks in advance.
